[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WELCOME.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, EVERYBODY.

[CROWD CHANTING STEPHEN] THANK YOU HAVE MUCH.

PLEASE, SIT DOWN, NATION.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WELCOME -- WELCOME TO THE BROADCAST PRESENTED TONIGHT WITH LIMITED COMMERCIAL INTERRUPTIONS.

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

FOLKS, I'M STILL COMING DOWN FROM LAST NIGHT'S SUPERBOWL RAGER.

I HAD THE WHOLE WRECKING CREW OVER AND THEY BROUGHT IT.

AND BY IT, I MEAN A LOVELY SPINACH DIP BREAD BOWL, COURTESY OF LOU DAWG.

[ LAUGHTER ]

WOOF WOOF!

THE DOG IS LOOSE!

THE DOG IS IN THE HOUSE!

AND WANTS HIS SERVING TRAY BACK AT SOME POINT!

[ LAUGHTER ]

IT WAS A SUPERBOWL FOR THE AGES.

A PHOTO FINISH, SQUEAKER AT THE BUZZER, AAAAAND WHO WON?

WHO WON?

THE RAVENS.

THE RAVENS WON.

[ LAUGHTER ]

GOOD, GOOD.

PERFECT.

[ APPLAUSE ]

SOUNDS GREAT.

BONUS!

NOW RAY LEWIS HAS AS MANY SUPERBOWL RINGS AS MURDER INDICTMENTS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

EVENS IT OUT.

BUT OF COURSE, THE REAL WINNERS WERE AMERICAN CONSUMERS, BECAUSE THE ADS KILLED IT THIS YEAR.

THEY HAD IT ALL: A DORITOS-EATING GOAT,

[ LAUGHTER ]

A MAN OUTRUNNING A CHEETAH,

[ LAUGHTER ]

A GUY WHO LOST WEIGHT 15 YEARS AGO.

[ LAUGHTER ]

BUT THE TEARJERKER OF THE NIGHT WAS THE TOUCHING STORY OF A MAN'S LOVE FOR A HORSE.

AND THAT'S NOT JUST LOVE IN THE HORSE'S EYES.

IT'S ALSO GRATITUDE THAT IT WORKS FOR BUDWEISER AND NOT BURGER KING.

[ LAUGHTER ]

BUT THERE WAS ONE PART OF THE GAME I DIDN'T CARE FOR-- THE HALFTIME SHOW.

BEYONCE.

WAS SHE GREAT?

OF COURSE.

BUT A YOUNG, VITAL SINGER AT THE TOP OF HER GAME IS JUST UNNATURAL.

[ LAUGHTER ]

TRADITIONAL SUPERBOWL HALFTIMES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE ARTHRITIC LEGENDS DECADES PAST

[ LAUGHTER ]

THEIR PRIME SHAMBLING THROUGH THEIR CATALOG OF OLDIES.

[ LAUGHTER ]

I MEAN LOOK AT HER, SHE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE VISIBLE NECK WATTLE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

SO SAD.

OF COURSE, THE BIG STORY IS WHAT HAPPENED IN THE THIRD QUARTER.

>> WE HAVE A POWER OUTAGE AT THE SUPER DOME.

THERE WAS A SURGE IN THE BUILDING AND ALL OF THE LIGHTS HAVE BEEN KNOCKED OUT.

>> BLACKOUT BOWL.

>> BLACKOUT BOWL.

>> BLACKOUT BOWL!

THE LIGHTS GO OUT FOR 35 MINUTES.

>> Stephen: THAT'S RIGHT, 35 MINUTES WITHOUT POWER.

ONLY TWO MONTHS SHORT OF NEW ORLEANS' PERSONAL BEST.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THEY'LL GET THERE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NO ONE'S SURE WHAT CAUSED THE OUTAGE, BUT I BELIEVE IT MAY HAVE STARTED WITH AN ELECTRICAL SHORT.

HERE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

ALL RIGHT, COULD BE TROUBLE.

DOESN'T LOOK GOOD.

MIGHT WANT TO CHECK THE WIRING ON THAT THING.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THEY EVENTUALLY GOT POWER RESTORED, BUT I WAS DISAPPOINTED.

THAT STOP DOWN WAS 35 MINUTES OF DARKNESS THAT SHOULD'VE BEEN FILLED WITH ADS.

AND DON'T TELL ME YOU COULDN'T FIND A SPONSOR.

BECAUSE I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT MANY OF MY BLACKOUTS ARE BROUGHT TO YOU BY CAPTAIN MORGAN.
