Skipping the Super Bowl? What to Watch Instead

Kittens, puppies and a single bachelor. What more could you want?

Kitten Bowl IV

Kittens are hard to resist in normal settings, e.g., when they’re sleeping, but they’re even more adorable pouncing on a toy football in a kitten-size football field. The Hallmark Channel will start its broadcast of “Kitten Bowl IV” on Sunday at 12 p.m. ET. Animal advocate Beth Stern, four-time Pro Ball quarterback Boomer Esiason and award-winning reporter Mary Carillo have all returned for the fun. The kittens will paw at your heart, and there will be plenty of action and catfights too.

Puppy Bowl XIII

Sunday is a great day to catch up on your movie watching. There is a slew of new releases and rereleases this month on Netflix, including “Finding Dory,” “Sausage Party,” “Twilight,” “Babe,” “Superbad,” “Contact” and “Magic Mike.” You can relive the murder trial of former football star O.J. Simpson with “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.” The captivating and critically acclaimed series will make you forget there’s even a game happening. Netflix also offers plenty of original shows to binge-watch, like “The Crown,” “House of Cards,” “Luke Cage” and “Stranger Things.”
