The outstanding moments of Super Bowl 50 for me had nothing to do with the game or with the commercials, which as usual offered approximately a half-dozen great ads and dozens more that collectively represented a titanic waste of money and reflected the overall lack of originality these days among creatives in the advertising community. They were, in order, the fun and family friendly half-time show, Lady Gaga’s triumphant performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" (she has now dominated TV’s two biggest events of the year -- the Academy Awards and the Super Bowl) and the surprise announcement by CBS that this would be the final season for “The Good Wife,” which has a mere nine episodes to go before it ends.
