As everybody knows, Sunday it is Super Bowl XLVII (47) with the 49ers vs. the Ravens. Most everybody will be watching the game, if for no other reason, it will be for the entertainment aspect of the event. Well not everyone wants to watch football, so I went ahead on the remote control guide thingy and have come up with a few alternatives to the Super Bowl.Looking around I see a lot of repeats. On ABC it's 'America's Funniest Home Videos' and 'Shark Tank.' Same goes for NBC. They're showing back to back episodes of 'Betty White's Off Her Rockers.'

For the shows with dates (2013), meaning presumably new, PBS has 'Downton Abbey' and 'Pioneers of Television,' this week featuring superheros past and present. Over on E! there is 'Kourtney And Kim Take Miami.' In this episode, Scott plans to race cars. MTV has 'Snooki And JWOWW' and finally on Animal Planet the always adorable, cute, fun escape that is the 'Puppy Bowl!' Puppy Bowl IX (9). Let's all say, "Awwwww" together.

There you go, the highlights in my search for Super Bowl alternatives.
