NOT WORTH THE COST: Denny’s is not advertising in the game after promoting the restaurant chain during the '09 and '10 games. Denny's CMO Frances Allen noted the company didn’t consider buying ad time during the Super Bowl this year, saying, "If you have a purpose for being in there, it’s great. It’s the most expensive airtime and I don’t really see the ROI for it." Allen: "It’s wonderful to have your ad talked about the next day and some people get great media out of that.
