4. In Living Color’s Super Halftime Party- 1992

Super Bowl XXVI – Washington Redskins 37, Buffalo Bills 24

In an ingenious marketing stunt, FOX tried to pull viewers away from CBS — the Super Bowl XXVI broadcaster — by hosting a live halftime sketch show of In Living Color. Viewers watched “Men on Football” with Damon Wayans and David Alan Grier and “Fire Marshall Bill” with Jim Carrey.
