Why does it look that way?

Not technically why, by why do they

make it look pre-recorded instead of

looking like live TV? Why do they do that?

It makes it look stupid(er).

It's a different framerate.

Gotta like Ferguson's power failure comedy bit. (At least they didn't change the framerate for that!)

I wish the blackout had occurred during the halftime show. That was brutal.

If I want to see that much in-your-face sexuality, I hear there are web sites where I can find it after the football game is over. :D

It's not really a morality issue for me. I just think that sexiness is better with some amount of subtlety.

I don't care of performance, it just doesn't deserve my time to comment.

But sound quality was horrible! I would fire the entire sound engineering team, what a flop!

Backup singing was recorded. No one was on stage singing backups, just dancing. You would thing New Orleans have their own favorite sons and daughters that could put on a local flavor show.

Vanity filters? I heard GMA and the Today Show employ them.

No. Just a different frame rate for the halftime show. They did the same thing last year.

I don't recall last year's show having such a "film look" effect in terms of screwy color saturation and color balance.

Using 24fps transcoded video with LASER light shows and fireworks seems wrong on many levels.

I watched the DIRECTV LIL version from KOIN and it was not stellar PQ; lots of blotchy patching in the darker areas (especially the purple wainscot). AFAIK, KOIN has no subchannels. I was not able to compare the OTA, DISH or Comcast feeds so maybe it was just the TV calibration.

Color saturation and/or balance are not tied to the frame rate...so I'm not sure what your "in terms of" comment is getting at. There weren't any issues with saturation or balance anyway, so it must be an issue with whatever you were watching it on. I'm assuming you weren't at home.

Re: Canned--there more and more canned elements in these shows: backup singers, musical tracks, pre-recorded graphical effects, etc. such that it's becoming a moot point almost whether or not a singer is singing in realtime. Besides, they have realtime autocorrect now so even in concert you're not REALLY hearing that singer's live voice. It's all getting highly processed/pitch-corrected/doubled/EQ'd etc before the voice even comes out of the PA speakers.
