You can also catch Super Bowl Greatest Commercials 2018 on CBS. The special event will be broadcast Tuesday, January 30th. This year, five star-studded Super Bowl spots featuring some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment, representing “Man,” face off against five spots featuring scene-stealing animals, representing “Beast.” The special will be hosted by Boomer Esiason, analyst for CBS Sports’ NFL pre-game show THE NFL TODAY, and Daniela Ruah, star of CBS’ NCIS: LOS ANGELES, and will originate from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, home of “Super Bowl LII.”

Beginning this week, viewers can vote for their favorite Super Bowl commercials, pitting “Man” versus “Beast.” Esiason will campaign on behalf of his favorite commercials starring humans, and Ruah will advocate for the animal-led spots. These commercials go head-to-head on cbs.com/superbowl/commercials, where fans can vote for their favorite Super Bowl commercial. One “Man” and one “Beast” commercial will advance to the live vote during the broadcast, when viewers will decide the outcome and the ultimate winner will be revealed at the end of the show.

In addition, Kevin Frazier, co-host of Entertainment Tonight, will report from Minneapolis’ The Freehouse brewpub. Frazier will take viewers on an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the 2018 Super Bowl commercial for “Avocados from Mexico” featuring Chris Elliot, including the world premiere of the new spot. Also, the special will feature a look back at the iconic 1993 McDonald’s commercial, “Nothing But Net,” starring Larry Bird and Michael Jordan, now celebrating its 25th anniversary.
