The Super Bowl is known for its glitzy adverts with global brands battling to have the most memorable slot during the big game. Now you may say that figure is far lower than the rating for the Super Bowl, how can I think that Tom vs Time is the victor of the Super Bowl ad war?

It's the most-watched scripted show on NBC since the May 6, 2004 telecast of "ER" (28.4 million) which followed the "Friends" finale.

One NFL fan said online: "There goes $5 million worth of air time". That is not bad compared to what other companies spent.

On the flip side of this feel-good story was PETA, whose ad didn't air for one reason or another; however, it's still making the rounds on YouTube.

A better executed movie tie-in featuring Jeff Goldblum as Dr Ian Malcolm, a Jeep Wrangler and a pissed-off Tyrannosaurus Rex; keep watching for the sting in the tail. This was a win for both Jeep and Jurassic Park.

Some people turned the TV set off and on, thinking the set had malfunctioned.

I don't want to knock the Super Bowl ads. "But we felt it was more awkward than positive".

Verizon took a more serious approach to their TV time, and it seems to have paid off in the long-run for them.

John Mahoney, actor in Frasier - obituary
The Coen Brothers chose Mahoney for the role of WP Mayhew in Barton Fink (1992) because of his resemblance to William Faulkner . Born in Blackpool, England, Mahoney came to the United States at age 19 to teach English at Western Illinois University.

Thankfully, I'm not one of those people. The still photos and black and white clips show emergency responders helping people out in dire situations.

Perhaps the most touching of all came from Toyota, with the company also promoting the Winter Olympics.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos got creative with arguably the most popular ad Sunday. It's a comedic showcase of big-name celebrities who lend their voices to the Echo. This year Amazon's "Alexa lost her voice" spot seems to have been considered the consensus victor, with the NFL's own dirty dancing spin-off also getting a huge amount of attention.

Once again, the real victor was obvious-the viewers taking it all in.

Eli Manning has a history of amusing appearances in National Football League commercials, but none have been as popular as this ad.

The announcers tossed to a commercial break, so viewers didn't know what had happened.

Buffalo led all markets in Super Bowl ratings with 56.4 percent of homes tuned in on average, ahead of even the two cities with teams participating, Philadelphia (56.2) and Boston (55.9) and the host market, Minneapolis-St.

I've never been a big fan of Eli Manning.
