Don't ask me what time the Super Bowl is because I just told you

It's at 6:30 p.m. ET, dummy.

Super Bowl Sunday is finally here! It's the last football game for a long time, but it's also the best. The game starts at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS. And you can even watch it online. There's a lot of snark spilled over telling people on the internet what time the Super Bowl starts, but considering how hazy a good day buzz can make you, I'm glad someone provides this essential service.

The pregame festivities start much sooner, if you're into that whole thing. Lady Gaga will sing the national anthem around 6:15 p.m. ET. The halftime show features Beyoncé, who will perform her new song "Formation," as well as Coldplay, for some reason.
