I don't know. I can see both sides of this argument. It would make it more primetime if it were Saturday night. But the current start time is early enough, even on the east coast, that most people can stay up and watch all, or at least the vast majority, of the game.
Also, one reason the ratings for the Super Bowl are so high is that it's become a de facto American holiday, so it attracts a lot more casual fans and non-sports fans than any other sporting event does. If the game is played Saturday night, those people suddenly have many other things to do, and may be less likely to watch.
Also, the network and the NFL make a killing off of selling commercial time during the Super Bowl. Just speculating here, but if it's moved to Saturday night, even if the viewership increases (and I'm not sure it would), a greater proportion of the viewership may be watching in bars, so they wouldn't hear or pay attention to any of the commercials.
