With the Super Bowl coming up, many are focused on the game, but others are looking forward to the halftime show and the commercials that are airing. Tonight, CBS airs its Super Bowl Greatest Commercials 2018 special, which is basically a countdown to the best commercials, hosted by Boomer Esiason and Daniela Ruah. In addition, Kevin Frazier is a part of the special and he will host a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on what creating a commercial. One subject that will definitely be included in the special is the 25th anniversary of an iconic McDonald’s ad. The special airs from 8 – 9 p.m. ET and broadcasts right before the State of the Union Address.
