This weekend on TV: The Super Bowl and a whole lot more

It's the Denver Broncos vs. the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII (Sunday, 4:30 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13). But there is, of course, more to it than just the game on Fox.

There's Road to the Super Bowl at 10 a.m. And Football America at 11 a.m. And the Super Bowl Pregame at noon.

After the game, there's the Super Bowl Postgame at approximately 8 p.m. Altogether, that's at least 10½ hours. Which should be more than enough for anybody.
