'SNL' shines a light on CBS' hapless Super Bowl blackout fillers2/10/2013
Television time-filling is an art. The CBS crew that had to deal with the 34-minute delay after the lights went out at the Super Bowl seemed to be stuck on stick figures and fingerpaints.That was bad news for viewers on game day, but a bonanza for those tuning in "Saturday Night Live" to see anchor James Brown, Shannon Sharpe and the panel skewered for their strained updates and analysis. Talking heads, take note: The next time you're stuck with empty air time, marital infidelities and a discussion of which player would be the first to be eaten by his teammates are a big upgrade from whatever else pops into your heads.
