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?

Torrey DeVitto, Yaya DaCosta Leaving ‘Chicago Med’ Ahead of Season 7

Chicago Med Lemons and Lemonade

Someone rush over a crash cart because this news has crushed us!

Chicago Med is losing two incredible cast members ahead of the NBC drama’s seventh season. 

Torrey DeVitto, who plays doctor Natalie Manning, and Yaya DaCosta, who plays nurse April Sexton, will not be returning in the fall, per Deadline.

DaCosta is leaving to lead Lee Daniels’ Our Kind of People, which nabbed a straight-to-series order at FOX. 

DeVitto, from Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill fame, will star in an upcoming indie film titled Skelly. 

She even confirmed the news to her fans on social media, writing: “Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag…All good things must come to an end.

It has been such an honor and pure joy to bring Dr. Natalie Manning to life for all of you on Chicago Med for the past 6 seasons. But it is now time for her and me to bow out and say goodbye.

Thank you to all you loyal watchers who adored her as much as I did.

I can’t wait to share what’s to come with all of you. New adventures await!”

Both DeVitto and DaCosta have appeared in the #OneChicago franchise since Med’s premiere in 2015.

Per the publication, their contracts were up at the end of season 6 and both actresses decided not to renew. 

The rest of the cast ( S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, Oliver Platt as Dr. Daniel Charles, Nick Gehlfuss as Dr. Will Halstead, Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi and Marlyne Barrett as nurse Maggie Lockwood) is expected to return pending contract negotiations.

All three Chicago shows were renewed for three additional seasons back in 2020 — Chicago Fire through season 11, Chicago PD through season 10, and Chicago Med through season 8.

The current storylines have seemingly been setting up for the actresses’ exits as Manning found herself in hot water after stealing medication to help her mother, while April decided to return to nursing school. 

We’ll definitely miss DeVitto and DaCosta, but we wish them the best of luck in future projects!
