We've waited all season for this moment, and the Super Bowl is finally here. While the Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren't playing in the big game, it's not like anyone is going to skip watching.

It's a cultural event, with the game taking a backseat to the fervor around Taylor Swift. She will be at the game, having arrived from Tokyo on Saturday evening, but she's not the only notable pop culture crossover.

Here's everything to know about the Super Bowl and how to make sure you don't miss any of the action.

What time is the Super Bowl today?

Kickoff is scheduled to take place at 6:30 pm ET, but the game probably won't get started until a little after that time. Three performers will be singing songs ahead of kickoff and ceremonies like the coin toss and other things need to take place.

Because of all the pomp and circumstance, typically the Super Bowl kicks off fifteen to twenty minutes after the scheduled time.

How to watch Super Bowl 58: TV channel and live stream

Here's everything you need to know to catch Super Bowl 58:

  • Date: Sunday, February 11th
  • Start Time: 6:25 PM ET
  • Location: Las Vegas, NV
  • TV Channel: CBS
  • Announcers: Jim Nantz, Tony Romo, Tracy Wolfson
  • Live Stream: Paramount + | Fubo

This is the first time CBS will be broadcasting the Super Bowl since the Buccaneers were in it back in 2021. That means the last time the Chiefs were in a Super Bowl being aired on CBS with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo in the booth, they got annihilated by the league's top defense.

What a way for history to potentially repeat itself.

CBS isn't the only channel that will be airing the Super Bowl, though. For the first time ever there will be a simulcast, which will take place on Nickelodeon.

That's right, we're getting a Nickelodeon broadcast for the Super Bowl which is bound to be absolutely iconic. Everything that has happened during the other Nickelodeon broadcasts will bre present -- the slime, the insane graphics, and Patrick Star giving his expert analysis.

  • Date: Sunday, February 11th
  • Start Time: 6:25 PM ET
  • Location: Las Vegas, NV
  • TV Channel: Nickelodeon
  • Announcers: Noah Eagle, Nate Burleson
  • Live Stream: Paramount + | Fubo

Who’s performing the Super Bowl 58 halftime show?

This year Usher will be performing the Super Bowl halftime show, likely with a handful of special guests. It's already been rumored that Justin Bieber will be making an appearance, and it's hard to imagine him not bringing out Lil' Jon and Ludacris to perform their hit 'Yeah'.

Here's a look at every Super Bowl halftime performer going back the last ten years:

  • 2023: Rihanna
  • 2022: Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar
  • 2021: The Weeknd
  • 2020: Shakira and Jennifer Lopez
  • 2019: Maroon 5
  • 2018: Justin Timberlake
  • 2017: Lady Gaga
  • 2016: Beyoncé, Coldplay
  • 2015: Katy Perry, Lenny Kravitz, Missy Elliott
  • 2014: Red Hot Chili Peppers

What time is the Super Bowl 58 halftime show?

Usher was announced a while back as being the halftime show performer, but the real question is when he will go on. It seems obvious, but this all depends on what happens in the first half of the game, but typically the halftime takes place closer to 8:00 pm ET.

Who’s performing the Super Bowl national anthem?

Country music icon Reba McEntire will be the first performer of the night, helping kick things off by singing the National Anthem. Reba will have the final pregame performance before kickoff but she won't be alone in the festivities.

Pop star and rapper Post Malone will sing 'America The Beautiful' while Andra Day will perform 'Lift Up Every Voice'.

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers players in Super Bowl 58

While the Buccaneers might not be in the Super Bowl this year, a few familiar faces will be. Five former Bucs are suiting up, with four playing for Kansas City and only one for San Francisco.

  • Donovan Smith, OT
  • Mike Edwards, S
  • Blaine Gabbert, QB
  • Justin Watson, WR
  • Logan Ryan, S

Logan Ryan is the lone 49ers player to have spent time with the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay's ties go deeper -- and higher -- than just who is on the roster, though. General manager John Lynch is seeking his second Super Bowl ring, his first as an executive, to go alongside the one he won back in 2002 with the Bucs.

That means no matter who wins, a former Buccaneers player is going to walk away with a second Super Bowl ring.
