The Fish Bowl — For When The Puppy Bowl Is Just Too Ruff

Let’s face it: If you’ve seen one Super Bowl, you’ve seen them all.

And while the Puppy Bowl and Kitten Bowl are great, they can be a little overwhelming. What if you’re so allergic to furry creatures that the mere sight of them sends you into a frenzy? What if you hate cuteness? What if you just want to chill out, kick back and watch colorful sea creatures peacefully swim around?

Then the Fish Bowl is for you.

When Nat Geo Wild’s Super Bowl counterprogramming debuted in 2014, it was literally just footage of a fish swimming around a bowl for four hours, a spokesman explained at the time.

That first Fish Bowl only drew 27,000 viewers, but anecdotal evidence suggests that cats loved it:

Nat Geo Wild upped the ante in 2015 by apparently taking the show on the road and visiting a farm. This year, the channel is trying to make a splash by filming a 50-gallon bowl filled with a variety of aquatic creatures — more of an aquarium than a “bowl,” really.

The aptly named Fish Bowl XXL will air Sunday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. EST, then again from 10 p.m. to midnight.
