MJD, at Shutdown Corner, took the time to outline some of the other great shows that are on during the big game today, and I wanted to share them with you. If you don't want to be one of the 90 million watching the Super Bowl, here are MJD's picks....
Animal Planet: "Puppy Bowl V"I like the wide range of selections there, but MJD missed a few great options on some of the more obscure networks. Here are my picks....
FOX: "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader", reruns of "The Simpsons," "American Dad," and "Family Guy."
CBS: Reruns of Cold Case and The Unit.
ABC: "America's Funniest Home Videos," three consecutive episodes of "Wipeout."
A&E: "The Sopranos" marathon.
USA: "House" marathon.
The Movie Channel: "School for Seduction."
ESPN: 2008 World Series of Poker, Europe.
ESPN2: Reruns of Australian Open tennis.
Spike: "CSI" Marathon.
Fox Sports: Women's college basketball, UCLA vs. Stanford.
FX: The end of "Maid in Manhattan," "13 going on 30," and "The Devil Wears Prada."
Showtime: "Daddy's Little Girls" and "Bratz."
TBS: "What Women Want," and "My Big Fat Greek Wedding."
Discovery: "Jesus: The Complete Story"
A three part series which goes through the J-Man's early years, his mission and his last days. I'm sure Kurt Warner would approve!
TLC: "Forbidden Love: Polygamy"
Do I need to even explain this pick?
Science Channel: "How It's Made"
About eight episdose of random products being made. You've got segments on everything from Jelly Beans and Peanut Butter, to Conga Drums and Hydroponic Lettuce!
AMC: "Death Wish"
The original film in the five part series that made Charles Bronson a star. What's that you say? Charles Bronson isn't a star?!?! How dare you, sir!
Paladium: "Foo Fighters - Live From Wembley"
This is a random HD channel on my cable, so I don't know if you have it, but this show absolutely rocked. Almost 90K in attendance, and you can't beat an appearance by Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin.
