What Did CBS Promote During the Super Bowl?

The Ratings Junkie Sunday, February 07, 2016
Like the case with all shows, CBS used the Super Bowl to advertise their shows when a spot was unsold to advertisers. So, what was advertised? Believe it or not, not everything. Here's a list of ads,
in order. Most were between 10 and 15 seconds. A slash in between shows means that it was a joint promo. A number in parentheses following the show's name indicates the number of times thus far the show has been advertised or at least mentioned.

Directly Before the Game
Code Black
Hawaii 5-0/Blue Bloods

During the Game/Halftime
The Big Bang Theory
#1 Network (Includes The Big Bang Theory (2), Life in Pieces, NCIS, and 60 Minutes)
The Late Late Show
The Good Wife Final Season Announcement
#1 Network (different promo)
Late Show/Late Late Show (2)
Code Black (2)
The Amazing Race
CBS News (Includes 60 Minutes (2) and 48 Hours)
The Big Bang Theory (3)/Life in Pieces (2)
Grammys (2)
Late Show (2)
Madam Secretary
Blue Bloods (2)
CBS Cares ft Tom Selleck of Blue Bloods
CBS All-Access
Supergirl/Scorpion (2)/NCIS LA
Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders

Directly After The Game
Criminal Minds (5 seconds)

Notably missing from the list of advertised shows were CSI:Cyber, Angel from Hell, Undercover Boss, and Elementary.  Also missing was a mention for new show Rush Hour, which I expected to get the start of its promotional push tonight. I guessed wrong.

What do you think? Surprised at any of these numbers? Let me know in the comments below!
