The exact time is unknown, due to the timing of the Super Bowl halftime show. Super Bowl LIII Half Time Show features performances by Maroon 5, Travis Scott, and Big Boi.
In 1999, WWE held their first ‘Halftime Heat’ event which featured The Rock vs. Mankind in a WWF Championship match. The match was held in an empty arena, and was a part of the Sunday Night Heat broadcast.
The match helped Sunday Night Heat gain their highest rating of 6.6.
