Almost all major TV networks air repeats opposite the Super Bowl. There’s no really sense in competitng with the biggest show of the year. However in recent years Animal Planet has carved out their own niche on Super Bowl Sunday with the “Puppy Bowl”. This year is the network celebrates “Puppy Bowl X” with kickoff at 3pm. If you haven’t seen the show before here’s a bit of primer. The cutest puppies imaginable are unleashed on a miniature field for battle.
The cameras in the bottom of the water bowls could defrost the coldest of hearts. Instead of searching for cute animal videos on YouTube viewers can just sit back and let the fur fly. Don’t sleep on “Puppy Bowl X”. The show is going to draw tons of viewers when Bruno Mars starts his Halftime Show. Bruno and his hair are cute, but not when compared to a baby Puggle.
Just how big is this show? Check out this video from Animal Planet that asks us to tweet about their favorite dogs.
If the Broncos blow out the Seahawks then the puppies could find themselves center stage. The MVP of the show is tug of wars over plush toys. That’s always worthy of a slow motion replay. Here’s a look at the best moments from last year’s “Puppy Bowl IX”.
