Besides a few fogged up camera shots and a sideline photographer who got drenched, CBS’ production of the Super Bowl came off without a hitch. Crews wiped off camera lenses as fast as they could, as the director switched through the 48 cameras to keep a clear shot. This AP story praised the game coverage and the halftime show, but had a few choice words for the heart-tugging pregame show. “As you can imagine, all the feel-good segments got a lot more airtime than, say, the story about the Bearsâ€™ Tank Johnson needing a judgeâ€™s OK to get out of house arrest on gun-possession charges and travel to Miami.” Yes, but whaddya expect?
