Media Beat: Abbey Klaassen on the Future of Super Bowl Ads

Remember when the whole family crowded around the set for The Cosby Show or you got your roommates together for those Melrose Place viewing parties?

PART 2: Tomorrow, Klaassen discusses her new role as executive editor of Advertising Age and how you can land a byline in her pages.

PART 3: On Wednesday, Klaassen gives tips to advertisers looking to fend off competition from Google.
