Eagles fans may want to familiarize themselves with where Cozi TV falls in their channel lineup and set their DVRs accordingly. That’s where the celebration will be televised should the Eagles win the Super Bowl.
NBC is broadcasting the Super Bowl on Sunday, but not the party after, it turns out. Once all the confetti has fallen and Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth sign off for the night, Philadelphia’s affiliate, NBC10, will pivot away from football as well.
Instead the network is scheduled to air a special episode of the popular drama, "This Is Us," over local coverage, according to Ellen Gray for Philly.com.
NBC10’s news team will still be reporting from the Super Bowl, as well as around Philadelphia, where fans will either be celebrating the Eagles’ first world championship in 57 years or mourning another close call. That programming will simply run on Cozi TV instead.
Though it may seem like a curious call, networks typically use the post-Super Bowl time slot to promote a show or event with the ability to capitalize on the ratings boon from the game. Apparently, local markets are no exception.
I’ve never watched "This Is Us," but I’ve heard of it — frequently, actually — so I imagine there probably are some people out there who care that this highly anticipated episode runs on time. Just nobody reading this site.
I was not familiar with Cozi TV before learning of this news, however, and what is happening around the city in the wake of the game is of supreme interest to me, both on a personal and professional level. With that in mind, this seems like a situation that legitimately needs more pub.
Of course, NBC Sports Philadelphia will have postgame coverage as well. But if you want real-time footage of the city being burned to the ground in addition to talk about the game, Cozi TV has you covered, too.
It will be one of many channels set for DVR, as win or lose, the antics in the streets of Philly after promise to provide plenty of amusement.
