Not sure how long this has been the case but normally the night before the superbowl it's a long marathon leading all the way up to the actual SB for this season. But I checked the programming schedule for ESPN2 and tonight after 1am there is nothing on but NBA basketball and Sportscenter. Then I checked the programming schedule for the NFL Network and they are airing some new programming like superbowl saturday night and best superbowl commercials.

So this seems to be a first for the night before the superbowl.

But few sports carry most of a day like the Super Bowl does now days. Its more like a event followed by the game. Often people are getting prepared for the day the night before now days.My wife for instance wentt o two huge super grocery stores when she decided to make wings also. Zero wings available at 10:30 am and Dallas nor Houston is in the game. The talk shows are most during the entire week before so spread out. I saw no shortage on my cable; altho I don't watch them. Of course those with basket ball contracts are going to carry that.

I was just shocked not see it on atleast ESPN2 overnight which was always the norm. I am not sure if there is still a ESPNClassic but it would have definitely fit on that channel the night before the superbowl.

No network can air all of the Super Bowls - there are no broadcast tapes (ie, copies made by the broadcasters) of Super Bowl I. And that was the only Super Bowl to be televised by two networks - one that had the rights to televise NFL games and the other that had the rights for AFL games. Neither network bothered to preserve their copies.

There's a quad tape of part of one of the telecasts of the game (the third quarter is missing) made by a viewer, and broadcast footage of a few of the scoring plays has been preserved. But that's it - a partial home-recording and a few plays.

I was referring to the NFL Films version of all the SB highlights narrated by John Facenda which used to air overnight every year the night before the superbowl.

Because the sb was coming up? They do it every year that way. Not necessarily the night before. With 48 sb's to roll thru, it takes a while.
