Playfully resting her Chanel boot on the banister of the ornate, sweeping staircase inside a bustling Manhattan hotel, Sarah Shahi tosses back her head and gives a sexy, throaty laugh.
Actually, it’s more of a snort. The beautiful TV star, who was born Aahoo Jahansouzshahi and is descended from one of the first ruling shahs of Iran, is the picture of glamour and sophistication. But beneath the cool exterior, this down-to-earth Texan is enjoying the elements of farce.
A group of onlookers — pharmaceutical reps attending a conference — watch The Post’s photo shoot, enthralled. Now and again, a random guest ascends the stairs, blissfully unaware that they’re sabotaging the shot. Shahi shifts her leg to let them through, like some shapely drawbridge.
“Hi,” she says, as another interloper sidles past. She pulls a face of mock-frustration for the camera, as if to add: “No rush, we’ve got all day!”
SUPER BOWL’S GREATEST COMMERCIALS 2014 is an interactive countdown special where viewers will be able to vote LIVE on CBS.com for their favorite Super Bowl Commercials. The special, hosted by Boomer Esiason, Analyst for CBS Sports’ NFL pre-game show THE NFL TODAY, and Sarah Shahi, star of the CBS drama Person Of Interest, will be broadcast Wednesday, Jan. 29 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Sponsors present their best commercials during the Super Bowl, and the big game wouldn’t be quite the same without them. For the advertising community, the Super Bowl is their Super Bowl, and often creates commercials specifically for the enormous viewership that the game provides. For many, watching the commercials is the most entertaining part of the Super Bowl. Advertisers try to get their money’s worth by rolling out their most creative and innovative spots. This one-hour special, now in its 14th year, will originate from MetLife Stadium, home of “Super Bowl XLVIII” and celebrates the pop culture phenomena that has become almost as big as the game itself.
Beginning today, viewers will get to vote for their favorite Super Bowl commercials from 10 categories (Office, User-Generated, Sexy, Beer, Crazy, Kids, Celebrity, Car, Animal and Soft Drink) and they will go head-to-head on www.cbs.com/superbowl/commercials/, where fans will be able to vote to determine the top three Super Bowl commercials. Those top three will advance to the live vote during the broadcast, when viewers will decide the outcome and the winner will be revealed at the end of the show.
PERSON OF INTEREST
PREVIOUSLY ON… | Still reeling from Carter’s death, Reese retreated to his father’s bar in Colorado, where Fusco found him (for better or for worse). Finch and Shaw meanwhile met the mysterious Control (guest star Camryn Manheim), and in doing so discovered there may be a second Machine out there!
COMING UP NEXT | As EP Jonah Nolan puts it, no less that “a clusterf—k of villains” will target Team Machine in Episode 12 — including but not limited to Control and Vigilance. Describing the theme for the second half as “escalation,” Nolan says, “As taxing, difficult and ultimately lethal as the battle [with HR] was, that was just the beginning of the challenges put in front of our heroes.” Adds EP Greg Plageman: “We’re going to see these various entities jockey for control of The Machine or at least something commensurate with it,” triggering a situation “where Root starts to take matters into her own hands.” And what about Reese? Did Fusco beat some sense into the Man in the Suit? Not quite. “The loss of Carter created a rift between our guys on Team Machine as well as disillusionment on Reese’s part,” Plageman notes. “Something much bigger has to happen if he’s ever to come back into the fold.”
