“Puppy Bowl” A Ratings Hit

Published

on

Animal Planet had no idea what it was onto when it aired its first “Puppy Bowl” seven years ago. It started out as a sort of ‘throwaway’ event to air during the actual Super Bowl, which often results in hemoraging ratings for other networks. So they just put up a couple of hours of dogs on a miniature football field, fighting over football shaped toys, running around like maniacs, napping, you name it. Whatever dogs do.

For its two-hour premiere at 3p, Puppy Bowl averaged more than 1.7 million total viewers, a 60% increase over the previous year during the 3-5p time period. 

The show also included a half time show (cats just sitting around and going nuts of cat toys, and even a streaker! (A Chinese Crested – mostly hairless dog, complete with censorship bar going across his business.)

I won’t lie – I did go back and forth between the big game and this canine frenzy, and it is pretty entertaining. (Insert every football fan’s collective eye roll here.)

The event features dogs available for adoption and results in a great deal of canines being saved via the networks website… which is pretty awesome in of itself.

Finally – a behind the scenes peek at the production:

This Cellist’s Rendition Of The ‘Inspector Gadget’ Theme Song Is So Good!

You don’t need Go-Go-Gadget-Hearing-Aids to hear how cool this cover is.

There are a few theme songs that are instantly recognizable and one of them definitely belongs to Inspector Gadget. YouTuber, Samara Ginsberg, not only shared her cello composition but also played all eight parts needed to perform the cover perfectly. The sound of eight cellos working together enriches the cartoony tune of the original, making the cover feel more appropriate for someone like James Bond. Talk about an epic mashup idea!

Folding Phones Are Now A Thing! Check Out The Samsung Galaxy Fold

It’s really happening. Could the days of mocking people with flip phones be over? But wait – there’s more. This phone as SIX cameras — three on the back, two inside, and one in the front for when it’s folded. I can’t even count how many selfies that adds up to.

It’s almost two thousand bucks. For now. But it expands from nearly 5 inches as a phone to a 7 inch tablet. Will it make me breakfast???

It sounds cool but I’m worried that eventually I’ll be too old to figure out how to use anything anymore. I’ve already stopped trying to program my favorite TV channels into cable system because it just seems to complicated.

MUST WATCH VIDEO: “How Spies Use Disguises” Is The Most Fascinating Video You’ll Watch All Day.

Published

This is CRAZY, COOL, and completely COMPELLING. The former CIA “Chief Of Disguise” (yes, that exists) shows just how sophisticated the process of disguising an agent has become.

Jonna Mendez once held that title. Here, she shows how she transformed agents’ identities with nuances both subtle and dramatic. She even shows how she once brilliantly demonstrated a lifelike mask to a former President. It turns out all the crazy stuff I saw on Scooby Doo as a kid was really possible!
