DON’T MISS: Super Bowl LIV – Break out the hot wings and nachos! It’s time to shovel thousands of calories into our faces and hunker down to watch men pummel each other in the name of pigskin supremacy. This time, it’s the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs duking it out at Hard Rock Stadium in South Florida. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman call the action, while Jennifer Lopez and Shakira get their groove on at halftime, and Madison Avenue spends a gazillion dollars on commercials. (3:30 p.m., Sunday, Fox)
