Over Two-Thirds of Americans to Watch The Super Bowl XLV

The Super Bowl 2011 is in only three days. The Super Bowl will be again the biggest TV event of the year. A new poll by Harris Interactive reveals that 69% of Americans plan to watch the Super Bowl. Almost nine in ten of those who plan to watch the game either are looking forward to watching the ads (59%) or, while they may not necessarily look forward to them, enjoy watching the ads (30%). In fact, only one in ten don't pay any special attention to the ads (8%) or wish they didn't have advertising during the Super Bowl (3%).

As you know our Super Bowl for Geeks Guide is all about the Super Bowl ads. The first ten 2011 Super Bowl Commercials have been already released. You can watch them in our Super Bowl Online Video Gallery .

The Super Bowl Halftime show is not that highly anticipated. Just one-third of those who are planning to watch the game (33%) look forward to the halftime show while one-quarter (27%) don't look forward to it but enjoy it when it comes on. Three in ten (29%) of those planning to watch the game say they don't pay any special attention to the halftime show and one in ten (10%) find it to be a distraction from the main event.

The Packers will have more fans cheering for them in front of the TV on Super Bowl Sunday. Almost two in five of those planning to watch the Super Bowl (38%) will be rooting for them, with 14% being fans and 24% joining the regular-season fans to root for them on Sunday. Three in ten (28%) are rooting for the Steelers with 13% saying they are regular-season fans while 15% are signing up to root for them on Sunday. One-third of those watching the game (34%) say they aren't rooting for either team – they just like the Super Bowl.

This Harris Poll was conducted online within the United States between January 25 to 27, 2011 among 2,516 adults (aged 18 and over) of whom 1,682 plan to watch the Super Bowl.

Just like last year, I4U News will be featuring again the Super Bowl for Geeks Guide. Of course the Super Bowl 2011 for Geeks Guide will be all about the Super Bowl Commercials and not the big game. Watch the first 2011 Super Bowl Ads now.
