Mike Vicic - February 4, 2010
More than 100 million people are going to watch Super Bowl XLIV this Sunday (February 7, 2010), and you want to watch something else?
Are you lucky!
As usual, many of the cable networks are showing specials, stunts and marathons for people just like YOU. Doesn't matter if you like beagles, bathrooms or burgers, there's something out there for you. Just whip out the remote and check out these options:
5 Super Stunts
Puppy Bowl VI on Animal Planet (3pm - 5am): Always top dog and winning best in show. Watch these shelter pups mix it up and frolic in Animal Planet Stadium -- only to be interrupted by the Kitten Half-Time Show. For the first time ever, aerial coverage of fido first downs will be provided by a blimp and its rogue hamster crew, while bunny cheerleaders will be on the sidelines to encourage the dogged defense.
Toilet Bowl 3 on DIY (7am - Midnight): If you're feeling a little flushed from all the Super Bowl hype, then spend the day with the bathroom. Watch America's Ugliest Bathrooms and the best episodes of Bathtastic! and 10 Killer Bathrooms. Plus, catch a sneak peek at DIY's newest series, Bath Crashers, at Noon.
Super Bawl Sunday on WE (10am - 7pm): Get your kleenex ready for WE's annual movie marathon of tearjerkers. On this year's playlist: Terms of Endearment @10am; An Officer and a Gentleman @1pm; and Beaches @4pm.
Super Stud Marathon on USA (11am - 11pm): OK, so USA renamed its stunt a "Man-a-thon," but it's still two six-packs of Law & Order: SVU.
Celebrity Beach Bowl 4 on WGN America (11am - 2pm): DirecTV airs the event live on Saturday -- starting with the Pre-Game Show at 1:30pm -- but WGN is replaying it on Sunday for cable subscribers. Former NFL players Warren Moon and Rich Gannon will captain their respective teams at quarterback with Eddie George, Merril Hoge, Mark Schlererth, Desmond Howard, and Daryl Johnston joining them. Celebs include Taylor Lautner, Chace Crawford, Marisa Miller, Nancy O'Dell, Brian McKnight, Michael Clarke Duncan, Olivia Munn, and Jessica Szohr.
