Every year, viewers look forward to watching the commercials during the Super Bowl just as much – if not more – than the big game. Companies shelled out $2.6 million for each 30-second slot, with some ads impressing TV critic James Poniewozik more than others. See how he grades the commercials of Super Bowl XLIV.

    The Bud Light house had to be my favorite this year. The worst was the two guys standing in the gym eating someone else's Doritos. Yeeeah......dumb!

    Seattleite here, as far as the ads- I felt that the target audience was minorities. All seemed to be focused on the lower to middle class spending consumers. As a member of the "middle class" and a minority group, it was bitter sweet. A lot of focus was spent on things that were irrelevant.... Beer,chips... A lot has changed in the past year and I would have liked to have witnessed some issues that promote the "change" our nation wants to see.
