Plot Synopsis

As part of a merger agreement between the National Football League (NFL) and the American Football League (AFL), the first Super Bowl was played on January 15, 1967. The first three years pitted League Champions against each other. Since the merger, the Super Bowl has been played every year since 1970 between the AFC and NFC Conference Champions. The winning team earns a trophy, named the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 1970 after the former Green Bay Packer head coach died. The Pittsburgh Steelers are the winningest Super Bowl team, having won six trophies, while the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers have each won five.
AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs play NFC champion San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, February 11, 2024 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV, broadcast live by CBS, with coverage beginning at 6pm ET/3pm PT. The game will be called by play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz and analyst Tony Romo, marking the duo's third Super Bowl together. Tracy Wolfson, Evan Washburn, and Jay Feely are sideline reporters along with Rules Analyst Gene Steratore.

During pregame, beginning at 6pm ET/3pm PT, Reba McEntire will sing the National Anthem, Post Malone will belt out "America the Beautiful," and Andra Day will perform "Lift Every Voice and Sing." All pregame entertainment will also include American Sign Language (ASL) performances, with model and dancer Anjel Pinero signing "America the Beautiful." The half-hour pregame show also features the coin toss and team introductions.

The game kicks off at 6:30pm ET/3:30pm PT as the Chiefs, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight-end Travis Kelce and the 49ers, led by quarterback Brock Purdy (Mr. Irrelevant in the 2022 NFL Draft), running back Christian McCaffrey, and wide receiver Deebo Samuel. Mahomes at age 28 will become the youngest quarterback in history to start a fourth Super Bowl. If the 49ers win, Christian and Ed McCaffrey would be only the second father-son duo to ever win a Super Bowl for the same team.

Usher will perform during Super Bowl halftime. He will be joined by special guest Alicia Keys.

Nickelodeon will present "Super Bowl LVIII Live from Bikini Bottom," the first-ever Super Bowl alternate telecast, beginning at 6:30pm ET/3:30pm PT. Coverage will feature enhanced graphics and advanced augmented reality, bringing the historic Slime-filled telecast to SpongeBob SquarePants' undersea home. Characters from SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS will join the telecast live, with an animated SpongeBob SquarePants (voiced by Tom Kenny) and Patrick Star (voiced by Bill Fagerbakke) joining CBS Sports analyst Nate Burleson and play-by-play announcer Noah Eagle live in the booth to call the game. Sandy Cheeks (voiced by Carolyn Lawrence) will make her sideline reporting debut, while Larry the Lobster (voiced by Mr. Lawrence) provides live commentary. NFL SLIMETIME's Young Dylan and Dylan Schefter will also report live from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV. Dora the Explorer (voiced by Diana Zermeno) and Boots (voiced by Asher Colton Spence) help explain penalty calls during the game.
