"What time does the superbowl start?"

Great question! Wait, no, it's not actually! It's pretty much the same time every year, right? But yet thousands and thousands of people are going to Google and typing in "What time does the superbowl start?" 

↵

Anyways, the official start time of Super Bowl XLV ("Super Bowl" is two words by the way, Internet) is 6:29 p.m. EST. The game is airing on FOX, which means Joe Buck and troy Aikman are on the call -- prepare yourselves appropriately.

The game will follow roughly six hours of pregame coverage by FOX, beginning with "Road To The Super Bowl," which airs at 12 p.m. That's followed by "Inside The Rings With Troy Aikman," which has the former QB and Joe Buck hosting "an informal chat with former Super Bowl participants, who discuss great plays, players and teams of the past." Neat.

At 2 p.m., the actual Super Bowl Pregame show officially begins, and goes until 6 p.m. It will feature "updates and interviews," including Bill O'Reilly's chat with President Barack Obama, which will run between 4:30 and 5 p.m. EST

Pretty sweet lead-in. Should really help the Super Bowl's ratings.
