The Five: Things to watch instead of the Super Bowl

puppy bowlIf you're not watching the Super Bowl today, you don't have to go out and, like, do something outdoors. You can still veg out in front of the television with a beer and some chips. Here are the five stand-out options for your television viewing pleasure:

5. TBS: Yes, Dear marathon. It seems like an odd choice of show to be watching all day long, but TBS thinks somebody will be interested. Sixteen episodes of Yes, Dear begin at 7 pm ET.
4. USA: Monk marathon.
This marathon includes best episodes dating back to 2002. Seven back-to-back episodes begin at 7 pm ET.

3.  VH1: America's Next Top Model marathon. Forget chubby guys pushing each other around on the football field, when you can watch hot models battle it out for Tyra's affection. Starts at 3 pm ET.

2.  TRAVEL CHANNEL: World Poker Tour. For all the men who aren't watching the Super Bowl, they can be counting cards. Starts at 11 am ET.

1. ANIMAL PLANET: Puppy Bowl II. Puppies of all breeds frolic around and generally be very puppy-like. The halftime show features kittens! Starts at 3 pm ET.

Honorable mentions: Charmed marathon on TNT, 101 Sexiest Celebrity Bodies marathon on E!, The FBI Files marathon on Discovery, Wild Weddings & What Not to Wear marathons on TLC, Full House marathon on Family Channel, Little House on the Prairie marathon on Lifetime, Paula Deen marathon on Food Network, and Liza Minnelli is Inside the Actor's Studio on A&E.

Oh sure, broadcast networks are getting slammed by the neverending nipplegate fiasco, meanwhile cable can get away with a "halftime show" full of kitty porn. ;)

I've always hoped that the Sci-Fi Channel would have a Sci-Fi bowl. Klingons Vs. Predator, or something like that.
