Katharine McPhee’s Super Bowl commercial special delivers largest audience since 2010

Katharine McPhee and Boomer Esiason’s CBS special Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials pulled in its largest audience since 2010 last night with over 10 million viewers tuning in. The 15th annual special had a theme of old-school vs. new-school this year, with Katharine picking her five favorite recent commercials and Boomer choosing a handful from yesteryears.

Earlier this month Bello Magazine did a cover story and photo shoot declaring Katharine McPhee the “Primetime Princess.” Between starring in one of the biggest new shows on TV with Scorpion and pulling in the largest Super Bowl commercial special ratings in 5 years, that title is justified!
