    The Super Bowl, as always, is a near lock to be among the most-watched programs of all time. It’s not guaranteed to last forever, said George Daly, a Georgetown professor of management who consulted the NFL decades ago. “All these things are risky,” Daly said. “If you look back to, say, 1950, the NFL title game brought in less money than the Rose Bowl. Things can change.”
