si.com — The Super Bowl is always an exercise in gigantism, and CBS is doing its part with 550 personnel in the Bay Area covering the game, pregame and CBS Sports Network shows. No other television broadcast matters more for a network on the calendar, and the rewards can be great: The last two Super Bowls have set records for the most-watched program in U.S.
