The Super Bowl is one of the most-watched U.S. television broadcasts of the year, attracting many companies to spend millions of dollars on commercials. This has caused the starting time of the game to be pushed back later and later, to ensure the Sunday night prime time audience on the East Coast. The last true day game (which ended before local sunset) of the series was Super Bowl XI in January 1977.

In addition, many popular singers and musicians have performed during the Super Bowl's pre-game and halftime ceremonies. This is the second-largest U.S. food consumption day, following Thanksgiving.

Super Bowl XL was the 40th Super Bowl, the championship game of the National Football League (NFL). Super Bowl XL was played on February 5, 2006 at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan, following the 2005 regular season.

The American Football Conference (AFC) champion Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the National Football Conference (NFC) champion Seattle Seahawks, 2110. Although the Seahawks won the turnover battle 2-1 and outgained the Steelers by 57 yards, Pittsburgh won on the strength of three big plays converted into touchdowns. Seattle, on the other hand, was plagued by controversial penalties, dropped balls, and poor clock management in the final minutes of each half. With the victory, the Steelers tied the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers for the most Super Bowl wins by a team (five).

Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward, who had five receptions for 123 yards and one touchdown and rushed for 18 yards, was named the Super Bowl XLs Most Valuable Player. Running back Jerome Bettis, playing in his hometown of Detroit, announced his retirement after the game, saying "I think the Bus's last stop is here in Detroit."

According to Nielsen Ratings, the telecast of Super Bowl XL drew an estimated average 90.7 million viewers in the USA, making it the most-watched Super Bowl since 1996 - the last time the Steelers appeared in the Super Bowl. The game was watched in 45.85 million homes - the second-highest in television history, trailing only the series finale of M*A*S*H in 1983. However, the game garnered a 41.6 rating placing it 61st on Neilsen's top-rated programs behind the M*A*S*H finale and various other Super Bowls.
