The “real” Super Bowl XLVI halftime show will be on

Getty Images

At some point after the first 30 minutes of Super Bowl XLVI concludes, the house lights at Lucas Oil Stadium will be dimmed and the Madonna mini-concert will commence.  Many of you have complained about the musical selection.  For those of you who choose to vote with your remotes, we have an alternative.

Leave the TV on NBC, and dial up the live stream of the game on

During the entire Madonna performance, Randy Moss of NFL Network and NBC and yours truly will be stationed with stick mics outside the Giants locker room, talking about what we had just seen and what we think will come in the final two quarters of the game.

Of course, we hope you’ll dial up the live stream of the NBC coverage of the game and the pregame on throughout the afternoon and evening.  Rosenthal and I will be chatting it up in the right rail, and you’ll be able to choose your camera angle while watching Super Bowl XLVI.

    If rather see you and Ocho in a cage fight.

    I cannot count the amount of things I would rather watch than 60 year old scantily dressed Madonna sing her awful music.

    You mean to tell me !! They still play the Super Bowl even if the Steelers aren’t in it ? This can’t be true .

  5. shrike58 says: Feb 5, 2012 9:14 AM

    While Madonna is not THAT old, the household I’ll be partying at will switch to the Puppy Bowl at that point.

  6. pavelfitzgerald says: Feb 5, 2012 9:14 AM

    How about we change the channel instead to show NBC & the NFL how horrawful of a choice Madonna is. Whose gonna do next year’s halftime show? Cher?

  7. blizzard01 says: Feb 5, 2012 9:36 AM

    No. It won’t.

  8. sdelmonte says: Feb 5, 2012 9:38 AM

    Somewhere out there, maybe there is an alternate timeline where halftime of even the Super Bowl is 12 minutes.

    Her cousin GAG a

    Randy Moss? Really??? That’s the best you can do?

  11. ndnut says: Feb 5, 2012 9:46 AM

    If I watch the game online to choose my camera angle do I still get to see the normal commercials airing on NBC?

  12. chadmurdigan says: Feb 5, 2012 10:00 AM

    Rosenthal said yesterday all the partiers were younger than he was, so was is the NFL serving up that old Grandma Madonna as halftime entertainment?

    The guy next door is 64, and he said he’d rather watch Tiny Tim than Madonna.

    No true Football guy or gal will stay tuned into the half time show to watch that old Sea Hag.

    Unless you talk Randy into going out by the goal post and mooning her. Just an idea.

  14. majbobby says: Feb 5, 2012 10:31 AM

    I will be changing the channel at halftime. Puppy Bowl is much more entertaining than Madonna.

  15. upperdecker19 says: Feb 5, 2012 11:24 AM

    I played the halftime prop bets….I have to at least DVR Grandma M’s “performance”

  16. stampnhawk says: Feb 5, 2012 11:47 AM

    I’ll be listening to those clean young go-getters, “Horray for Everything”, from the greatest hemisphere in the world, the Western hemisphere!

  17. indyseriesnick says: Feb 5, 2012 12:06 PM

    if i were nbc
    i would try to get kanye west to spoil madonnas performance
    THEN it would be a hell of a lot better

  18. yatista says: Feb 5, 2012 12:25 PM

    While I agree there could be a better choice for the half time entertainment, apparently Madonna is still relevant to many. Her last tour grossed $408m, most ever for a single performer, the tickets for her next tour cost minimum $300, and her net worth is estimated at $650 million.

    I’ll still not watch.

  19. vipod4ever says: Feb 5, 2012 2:29 PM

    I thought the “Cat Lady” was doing the half-time show?

  20. jaggedmark says: Feb 5, 2012 7:59 PM

    Turn off Madonna for NFL Network’s Randy Moss? Are you kidding???

  21. jharmon64 says: Feb 5, 2012 8:04 PM

    I guess I’m in the minority, but Madonna is one of the greatest entertainers of all time. One of the better half time shows in a while.

  22. dlew2191 says: Feb 5, 2012 8:05 PM

    LMAO @ ppl thinking it’s Randy Moss the football player

  23. steelersmichele says: Feb 5, 2012 8:12 PM

    The halftime performance is horrible. Sorry, but Madonna is not football.

  24. proudlycanadian says: Feb 5, 2012 8:13 PM

    Madonna is terrible! She can’t sing!

  25. brian32556 says: Feb 5, 2012 8:17 PM

    Worst halftime show ever. No excitement. No “WOW” moment.

  26. Deb says: Feb 5, 2012 8:18 PM

    Her duet of “Like a Prayer” with Cee Lo was okay (despite the weird Wicked Witch of the West ending), but the rest of it was awful. She’s not 60, but she’s too old for the cheerleader bit.

    Can we get Bon Jovi while they’re still young enough to rock the stadium? The halftime show should be FUN.

  27. Gordon says: Feb 5, 2012 8:19 PM

    The halftime show is just awful every year. It was slightly less awful the 2 years that Springfield & McCartney performed.

  28. charger383 says: Feb 5, 2012 8:25 PM

    I liked Madonna”s half time show

  29. wooooo8732 says: Feb 5, 2012 8:31 PM

    Per a league source, Madonna can still get it.

  30. lilrob10201 says: Feb 5, 2012 8:33 PM

    Madonna had a better performance then I though it would be.To tell you the truth last years performance by the Black eyed peas was the worst ever.

  31. thefiesty1 says: Feb 5, 2012 8:36 PM

    That half-time show was close to terrible.

  32. lovelyartz says: Feb 5, 2012 8:44 PM

    Then I guess I will re-post this and take a screen shot for future reference.

    -I am very irritated, as I do NOT have cable. I was looking forward to the Halftime performance after the first half of a great game (Go Giants!). Instead, I got to watch 2 men in suits stroke each other’s ego’s and ACT like they knew what they were talking about.

    -From a graphic and web design stand point, you should have at least had the option to switch back and forth between your so-called “real” halftime show and the performance. I don’t care if the performance itself was terrible (and I WOULDN’T know because you didn’t stream it!)

    -DISGRUNTLED viewer.

  33. lordgareth says: Feb 5, 2012 9:32 PM

    I will never again bother watching the game online, I would rather miss it all together. Having annoying GE commercials every five minutes while I’m trying to figure out how to watch the real halftime show angered me to no end with the and even the GE company.

    First website with streaming video that I have ever been disappointed in along with its sponsors.
