Super Bowl has competition from puppies, kittens, zombies and a fish
Puppies and kittens and fish, oh my!
The three species - along with some zombies - will be competing with the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Well, competing is probably not the right word. Four channels are pulling stunts to get themselves some attention and a few viewers. And they will get some because, believe it or not, not everybody cares about the Broncos and the Seahawks.
Here's what you can expect:
Puppy Bowl X (1 p.m.-3 a.m., Animal Planet): Awwww ... cute little puppies run around and play with a football. It's darling.
Inaugural Kitten Bowl (10 a.m.-10 p.m., Hallmark): Substituting kitties for puppies isn't exactly an original idea, but it's sure to be cute.<
The Zombie Bowl (8 a.m.-4 a.m. Monday): It's not cute and it's not a bowl. It's a 19-episode marathon of "The Walking Dead" - the first two seasons of the series.
(You can watch a marathon of the 24 episodes from Season 3 and the first half of Season 4 on Saturday, Feb. 8, and Sunday, Feb. 9; the second half of Season 4 begins Sunday, Feb. 9, at 7 p.m.)
