TiVo makes the experience much better. Even if I "watch live", I have to watch two networks at once, so I have to back up during commercial breaks. NBC has superior coverage in terms of showing more of the entries, but neither NBC nor ABC shows everything. ABC spends a lot of time on behind the scenes and has a man who interviews people, plus commentary on the football games. If you watch only ABC, you miss so much. On the other hand, I would have missed some entries by just watching NBC. The parade is presented by Honda, but didn't they mean Hoda? I don't think some of the entries are live because I saw them on NBC long after they were on ABC. Still, there is usually an NBC logo with the word "Live". Lots of really nice floats! Lots of great bands! The Oregon cheerleaders showed their tummies but the Wisconsin cheerleaders wore short skirts. I prefer the skirts. A "recording sensation" is defined as someone who makes noise rather than performing music. Now the performance from "Frozen" was music. I was able to skip over whatever that was at the beginning. The number of Grammys earned by those responsible for that does not impress me. No Mexicans on horses this year. I wonder how long it has been since they weren't on. But we did have a woman who walked while spinning her lasso around. ABC has a tendency to avoid horses but they did show the Clydesdales and the therapy horses.
