Post-Super Bowl Television Shows

Post-Super Bowl Television Shows

One of the most watched television programs in the United States during the year is the program coming on immediately after the Super Bowl. When the game moved into a later time slot in 1983, the game and its associated post-game programming would be scheduled until 10 p.m. Eastern Time, allowing for only one hour of network programming until the late local news.

Early use of this slot was to showcase a new program, such as "The A-Team" or "The Wonder Years", but lately it is usually given to one of the "prestige" shows for the network showing the game that year. It was not until 1992 that an established show ("60 Minutes") was first aired in the slot. The episode featured Steve Kroft interviewing Bill and Hillary Clinton shortly thereafter revelations of an affair with Paula Jones.

Only "Survivor" and "The Simpsons" have aired in the slot twice. In each time "The Simpsons" aired, a new animated show was premiered afterward ("Family Guy" in 1999 and "American Dad" in 2005).

The following is a list of shows that have aired after the Super Bowl in the United States:
