Game Time! Best TV Episodes to Watch Ahead of The Super Bowl

This Is Us/ NBC

TV show characters? They’re just like us.

They fall in love, get their hearts broken, battle intergalactic creatures and obviously gather ’round with their loved ones for the Big Game. But with the Super Bowl being such a significant national moment — a “holy” day if you will — TV shows don’t seem to be capitalizing on it too much.

WATCH: Super Bowl 55 Commercials from Dan Levy, Jimmy Kimmel, Amy Schumer, Ashton Kutcher, and More

 

But, as far as episodes simply celebrating the Super Bowl? Those a few and far between.

We’ve dug up some of our favorite Super Bowl-themed episodes that will allow you to kick back with your buddies and get pumped for Sunday. You’ll enjoy these, no matter what team you’re rooting for.  Warning: one of them will even make you sob uncontrollably.

1. This Is Us – That’ll Be the Day (2018)

This Is Us - That'll Be the Day (2018)
I’ll start with the most recent episode of This Is Us. Jack and Rebecca geared up for their final Super Bowl with the Big Three before they leave for college. But, instead of familial bonding, the day is filled with fights and teenage angst. Eventually, the teens all chose to watch the game elsewhere. The episode ends with a fire at the Pearson household, which we know inevitably leads to Jack’s death. The continuation of this horrible, terrible, no good, very bad episode airs RIGHT after this Sunday’s Super Bowl so please, have your Terrible Towels ready.
 

2. Everybody Loves Raymond – Super Bowl (2001)

Everybody Loves Raymond - Super Bowl (2001)
Ray discovers he’s getting sent to cover the Super Bowl. He invites Gianni, which doesn’t sit well with Debra. Or the other family members. She gives him hell and when he realizes everyone else brought their wives, he flies her out, which makes things even worse. Point of the story? If you get Super Bowl tickets, always bring your wife, your dad, or your brother!
 

3. Full House – Super Bowl Funday (1995)

Full House - Super Bowl Funday (1995)
Taking it back to the good ole’ Full House days! Joey returns home from a two-week comedy tour to watch the Super Bowl with the fam. Those plans are derailed when he realizes he promised to take Michelle’s class on a museum tour. In an attempt not to miss the game, he and Jesse bring the kids to a bar, but when the TVs break down, they invite everyone back to the house, interrupting DJ’s study session.

4. The Simpsons – Sunday, Cruddy Sunday (1999)

The Simpsons - Sunday, Cruddy Sunday (1999)
The Simpsons have plenty of Super Bowl TV episodes to choose from, but I’ll go with ‘Sunday, Cruddy Sunday’ in which Homer and some pals score tickets to the Super Bowl. The good times come to a halt when they are told their tickets are counterfeit. Bart devises a plan to sneak in but as you’d imagine, sneaking into such a prestigious event isn’t as easy as it seems.
 

5. Seinfeld – The Label Maker (1995)

Seinfeld - The Label Maker (1995)
Jerry realizes that he has a wedding the same day as the Super Bowl so he gifts his tickets to Whatley, his dentist. Then the worst possible thing happens: the wedding is called off. Jerry tries to get his tickets back, but Whatley already invited Newman and then later, Elaine. Does he ever re-gift the tickets back to Jerry?

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1932’

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for 'Yellowstone' Prequel '1932'

 

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are jumping on the Yellowstone bandwagon.

The actors will star in the drama’s upcoming 1932 prequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The Paramount+ series follows the 1883 prequel spinoff and will introduce a new generation of Duttons. 

The series has amassed a somewhat cult following, so it makes sense that the forces behind yet another origin story have decided to go big with the names attached to the project. 

It’s unclear what role Ford and Mirren have been cast in, but we’re sure it’ll delight considering their impressive acting resumes. 

Per the official synopsis provided by the streaming network, the drama will “explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.”

Pandemics, huh. We know a thing or two about that. 

News of the new prequel first broke in February. 

“Taylor Sheridan has put roots down for the Dutton Family tree that stand strong and tall, with many branches that continue to engage record-breaking audiences,” 1883 executive producer David C. Glasser said via a statement, adding, “It is awe-inspiring to work with Taylor, ViacomCBS and the entire team on this universe.”

It’s unclear if the plan is to have 1932 span multiple seasons or if it will be a one-season limited series like the previous prequel.

All we know is that if you’re not watching Yellowstone and the blossoming franchise, you’re doing it wrong.

‘Legacies’ Canceled at The CW – Season 4 Will be the Last

Published

QUIZ: Which 'Legacies' Character Are You?

It’s the end of a franchise on The CW. 

The network officially canceled Legacies, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. 

The news, while heartbreaking, might not be unexpected for those who have been following along and awaiting a verdict. 

Things didn’t bode well for the series after the network banished the remaining three episodes from their scheduled May airdates to the month of June. 

‘Dynasty,’ ‘Roswell, New Mexico,’ ‘Charmed’ Among Shows Canceled by The CW

And when The CW canceled Dynasty, Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed, In the Dark, and 4400 earlier today, things looked even bleaker for the Danielle Russell-led series. 

Admittedly, Legacies never reached the heights that its predecessors did, and viewership has only been dwindling. 

The series will come to an end with its fourth season. 

The CW really broke took a jab at so many fandoms today!

Deadline reports that the network is currently in talks to be sold to station group Nexstar, which could explain the decision to slice its programing roster in half. 

It previously canceled Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Back in March, the network gave green lights for several of its dramas: All American renewed for season 5, The Flash renewed for season 9, Kung Fu renewed for season 3, Superman & Loisrenewed for season 3, Nancy Drew renewed for season 4, Riverdale renewed for season 7, Walker renewed for season 3.
