By Chris Ariens Comment

  • Armen Keteyian’s inside report when the lights went out at Super Bowl XLVII airs tonight on “60 Minutes Sports” on Showtime. Keteyian was in the NFL control booth interviewing the league’s Senior V.P. of Events when the power went out.
  • As the “Today” show marked one year to the Sochi Olympics this morning — with tubing on man-made snow on Mt. Rockefeller — NBC Sports chief Mark Lazarus predicts, “We believe we’ll be profitable in Sochi.” NBC lost $223 million on the 2010 Vancouver Winter games, and made $88 million on the London Summer games.

  • The Weather Channel’s Stephanie Abrams and “LIVE’s” Kelly Ripa will be among the runners taking part in the Empire State Building Run-Up tonight, a race up the 86 floors of New York City’s most famous office building.
