    Am I the only one who checked out the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet?

    If you are a dog lover you would have enjoyed this.

    Well, I am a dog lover and I did check it out, but it was pretty boring. Cute for about 10 minutes and then it got pretty boring. I thought they were going to be tossing the ball around or something more than just letting the dogs play while playing new age music in the back ground.

    I still have it on tivo if there is something good to go back and watch.

    Nope, I watched it too for a little while. I had to change the channel when one of the puppies was getting beaten up and was crying in pain.

    I flipped past this, and was amazed that it even got past the idea phase, let alone the execution phase. I mean, what - did they officially run out of stuff to show, and their color bar generator was broken? I'm even more amazed that they were selling this crap on DVD.

    I feel sorry for each and every one of the humans involved in the production of this show.

    I think everyone at Animal Planet had really awesome super bowl plans and needed to come up with something that could take up a ton of time and be run by exactly one actual human during the airing (the ref? i guess.)

    Does anyone know what was underneath the water bowl?

    The puppies seemed very interested in the waterbowl and we're wondering what was hiding under that clear waterbowl besides the camera...

    They were curious about the light.

    I thought it was cute, but then again, I only watched it for a little bit.

    I thought it was great, even funny in some parts. It was a good thing to have on in the background while reading the Sunday paper. And definitely better than the 4 (!) hours of Super Bowl "Pregame".

    I don't think it really was meant to be a 'must watch' program or all that serious a programming alternative - kind of like the time they had the staff of one cable channel watching the finale of 'Friends'. Just something to have on - some need to lighten up!

    I still have it on my Tivo - so whenever I want to relax I can wind it up! :)

    I agree. I made a point to avoid all the pregame and post game. I tuned into Puppy bowl every so often and it was fun to watch. Sure, I don't want to watch three hours straight, but it was an interesting idea.

    Was watching the Puppy Bowl again last night.
    (Who needs to count sheep when you've got puppies!)

    Noticed that my cat took the most interest in the water bowl cam shots.

    My dogs in the room didn't seem interested in the show. Perhaps if it was in high def. <G>

    They should have had a play by play announcer. It would have made it much more interesting. I stopped in a few times here and there.

    One of my Dogs liked it. I think I will leave it on the DVD player on a loop when I am out. But the best for this is the copy I sent to my brother who is in Saudi. Wait 'til he pops in this Superbowl DVD.

    We watched for a few minutes while we let the TiVo start recording the Super Bowl. It was beyond cute... once again. I loved the Bowl Cam! I tuned in again as I was getting ready for bed and it was the Kitten Halftime Show.
