6 Things to Watch If You Hate the Super Bowl
If you’re not a football fan or just not that into either the Broncos or the Panthers, there’s good news. While the Super Bowl (and all news regarding the game) will likely be dominating the conversation around you this Sunday, it won’t be completely taking over your TV. There are several alternative options to keep you entertained while everyone else is talking football. Check out six things to watch this Sunday if you’re not interested in the Super Bowl.
1. Puppy Bowl XII
By now, the Puppy Bowl has become a hugely popular institution in itself and is the top alternative to the actual Super Bowl. The adorable game will air on Animal Planet from 3 p.m. ET on Sunday to 3 a.m. ET on Monday. More of a cat person? The Puppy Bowl has also inspired several copycats, like the Kitten Bowl III on the Hallmark channel.
2. The Walking Dead
Prefer the undead creatures to football players? AMC will play a marathon of its hit zombie drama, starting at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday and continuing until 4 a.m. ET on Monday. It’s also a good chance to catch up before Season 6 of The Walking Dead returns to TV on February 14.
3. Law and Order: SVU
You don’t have to give up your police procedural addiction for the Super Bowl. USA will be airing a marathon of this long-running Mariska Haritgay-starrer. The episodes will kick off at 10 a.m. ET on Sunday and wrap up at 10 p.m. that same night.
4. Star Trek: The Next Generation
Those who prefer sci-fi over sports may want to catch BBC America’s marathon of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The channel will air back-to-back episodes starting from noon on Sunday to 7 a.m. on Monday.
Paranormal and fantasy aren’t exactly staples in the Super Bowl game. If you’re looking for a little more of those elements, catch the Supernatural marathon on TNT this Sunday. It will start at noon E.T and will continue through 11 p.m. ET.
6. 30 for 30
If you prefer sports documentaries to games, you’re in luck. ESPN classic is airing a marathon of its 30 for 30 series from 2 a.m. ET on Sunday until 11:30 p.m. ET that same night.
