If you're looking for a cuter, more relaxing alternative to tonight's big Super Bowl matchup, we humbly suggest the annual "Puppy Bowl" on Animal Planet.
This is the eighth year Animal Planet has aired the Puppy Bowl (sponsored by Petfinder.com) and it gets a little grander each year. Kitten cheerleaders were introduced for a Bissell Kitty Half-Time Show two years ago, and this year we get for the first time, pig pep squad antics before the game.
If you're a social media hound, Meep the Bird (aka @meepthebird) will be tweeting updates throughout the event.
The human presence comes from animal advocate and TV correspondent Jill Rappaport, who provides sideline analysis and game commentary.
All of the animals featured come from animal shelters and rescues across the country. If you're interested in adopting these or other adorable pets, check out petfinder.com.
"Puppy Bowl VIII" begins at 3 p.m. on Animal Planet and runs till 5. But it will repeat on a loop all day long.
