9 Fun Facts About Super Bowl Lead-Outs

Glee is the “After Super Bowl” show this year…Fox hopes a record number of viewers stick around after the big game…

HERE is the history of the After Super Bowl time slot on the networks…from Movieline.com

Some highlights:

When looking at the first few shows that aired after the Super Bowl, it was almost treated with a complete ambivalence for the first eleven contests. The list of programming is littered with such high-profile fair as the Bing Crosby Pro-Am Golf Tournament, Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom, NBC Nightly News and, on two occasions, the networks sent it back to the affiliates for local programming.

NBC rolled the dice in 1983 and hit it big with the first episode of The A-Team. (The pilot episode of The A-Team had aired the week before, but this is the first actual episode and the first to feature Dirk Benedict as Templeton “Faceman” Peck; Tim Dunigan played Face in the pilot.) The A-Team would last for five seasons, 98 episodes and spawn an atrocious 2010 action movie starring Bradley Cooper.
