‘Su­per Bowl XLVII’:

Pregame starts at 8 a.m. Sun­day, Chan­nel 7

TV Week - - FRONT PAGE -

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a big foot­ball game down in New Or­leans to­day.

That’s highly un­likely, es­pe­cially if you’re a viewer of CBS, which for the past week has put on an all-out blitz of pro­gram­ming re­lated to Su­per Bowl XLVII from the Big Easy. The eye net­work has de­ployed its news, sports and en­ter­tain­ment di­vi­sions at what it’s dubbed CBS Su­per Bowl Park at Jack­son Square in the French Quar­ter, of­fer­ing re­ports on what’s been hap­pen­ing there the past week, rang­ing from night life and celebri­ties in New Or­leans to the re­cov­ery from 2005’s Hur­ri­cane Ka­t­rina and, of course, what the teams in­volved have been up to.

So by now, you should be up to speed on all things New Or­leans.

As for the game it­self, the clash be­tween the Baltimore Ravens and San Fran­cisco 49ers kicks off at 3:30 p.m. to­day from the Mercedes-Benz Su­per­dome, with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms on the call for CBS.

The broad­cast day from New Or­leans be­gins at 8 a.m. with three spe­cials, “Road to the Su­per Bowl,” an NFL Films mon­tage of the sights and sounds of the 2012 sea­son; “New Or­leans: Let the Good Times Roll,” in which host Wyn­ton Marsalis takes a mu­si­cal tour of the city; and “Phil Simms All-Iron Team: Su­per Bowl Edi­tion,” in which Simms and Nantz high­light some of the great­est mo­ments in Su­per Bowl his­tory.

Then at 11 a.m., the game is the thing with the pregame show “The Su­per Bowl To­day,” with host Greg Gum­bel and an­a­lysts James Brown, Dan Marino, Boomer Esi­a­son, Shan­non Sharpe and Bill Cowher give their takes on what to ex­pect.
