Game On! NBCU to Smother Super Bowl

It’s more than just a game… it’s an opportunity to absolutely blanket TV viewers with the spoils of your consolidated company. Call it Super Bowl everywhere.

olbermann_1-31.jpgOn last night’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, the MSNBC host was stationed in Tampa Bay in a loud area near the Super Bowl site. Joining him in the last segment was his former Sportscenter partner, and now fellow member on NBC’s Football Night in America, Dan Patrick.

The duo talked about the dozens of participants, in NBC’s pre-game show tomorrow, including the Today show’s Al Roker and CNBC’s Darren Rovell. Olbermann even joked about Top Chef head judge Tom Colicchio being involved.
