animal planetsThis Sunday on NBC, the Philadelphia Eagles will face off against the New England Patriots. Animal Planet hosts the Puppy Bowl to promote pet adoption. You can catch Oliver on the Canine Bowl on Saturday, at 8pm on Animal Planet.

Filming started late final 12 months, Giese says, “and we just officially wrapped filming final Friday.” Most TV series, she says with a laugh, most likely do not movie that long, however animals are on their own schedule in the case of recovering from surgery and other occasions that occur after they’re in Giese’s care.

The chief producer for each the Pet Bowl and Canine Bowl, Simon Morris, said this inaugural occasion is supposed to showcase grownup canines from two to 15 years outdated—of assorted sizes and breeds—to show viewers the number of dogs of their native shelters accessible for adoption.

The patron demographic that Animal Planet is now targeting – don’t even start me on A&E’s sudden obsession with how looking is now appropriate ‘entertainment’ for household timeslots – is a way more stimulation-demanding viewers than the traditional David Attenborough worshippers of yesteryear (my lifelong idol).
