For the eighth consecutive year, Animal Planet presents its cute alternative to the Super Bowl when Puppy Bowl VIII returns on February 5 from 3p to 5p.  The network teams with and uses puppies from animal shelters across the nation for its canine gridiron action.  This year, Puppy Bowl adds Dan Schachner as “The Ref” who calls the plays and penalties on the field.  Also new for this year, there will be a piggy pep squad and viewers can follow Meep the Bird tweets.  Jill Rappaport also offers sideline analysis and game commentary and the Bissell Kitty Half-Time Show is back featuring playful kitties and lots of confetti.
