See Her Tonight
Sarah Shahi on Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials
(8:00 PM EST, CBS)
We don’t usually get excited over stupid television clip jobs tied in to other big events–but, yeah, Sarah Shahi is hosting Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials. Well, she’s co-hosting with Boomer Esiason. That guy’s the kind of television personality that you’d expect to find introducing classic ad spots. We’re not sure what a classy serious actress like Sarah Shahi is doing on the set, but your See Her Tonight column isn’t complaining.
And there’s a good reason for guys to watch a solid hour of commercials, too. We’ve already compiled our own 25 Hottest Women in the Hottest Super Bowl Commercials of All Time. There’s nothing wrong with catching another look at gals like Bar Rafaeli and Kaley Cuoco. We’re also happy to stare at Sarah–and CBS is hoping that you’ll notice that the built babe provides all of the sex appeal on the network’s Person of Interest.
Sarah’s had our interest for a while, though. She was part of the new wave of stars that broke out in Old School way back in 2003. Then the native Texan–born unto this world as Aahoo Jahansous Shahi–really schooled us with her lesbianic stint on the Showtime’s The L Word. Her character seduced a lot of the cast members while adding a new “L” word to the series as a fiery Latina.
We also enjoyed Sarah with Sylvester Stallone in 2012′s Bullet to the Head. That one kind of bombed as an ’80s action throwback, though. At least it brought Sarah back to the small screen. She deserves something a little better than a commercial compilation, but we’re not complaining about a little bonus Sarah in our lives this week. Now check out some pics that’ll give you a bonus…um, something…
