What to watch instead of the Super Bowl

Are you ready for some football? No?

Don't worry, there's lots to watch instead of The Big Game on Sunday.

Here are our suggestions.

'Downton Abbey'

If you missed episode five of the current (and final) season of "Downton Abbey," stop whatever you're doing and get yourself to a couch or comfortable chair from which to watch, post haste! In a shocking bit of dramatic television from the snooze-tastic (of late) show, Lord Grantham ... nevermind, we won't spoil it! Catch up with the PBS app before episode 6 airs on Sunday at 9 p.m. on PBS. What is a Super Bowl?

'The People v. O.J. Simpson'

If you aren't watching "The People v. O.J. Simpson", the latest in the FX anthology, "American Crime Story," you're doing it wrong, as the saying goes. Only one episode has aired so far. Yes, this is on TV and you can't binge-watch. So watch episode 1 this weekend on FXNOW and get excited for the second, which airs on FX on Tuesday at 10 p.m.

The Puppy Bowl

You absolutely must check out Bella, a 12-week-old rat terrier, on Team Ruff during the 2016 Puppy Bowl at 3 p.m. Sunday on Animal Planet. She and her fellow canine friends are sure to steal hearts. And come Monday morning, you'll be able to talk about something from the day before. Check out the rest of the pups here.

'Friday Night Lights'

If you need a little something extra (like

If you need a little something extra (like Tim Riggins, maybe?) to make football interesting, stream "Friday Night Lights" on Netflix. All five seasons are available so you could make a weekend out of it. Sounds about right to us!

'The Americans'

With the fourth season premiering on FX on March 16, it's high time you started this series (if you haven't already.) The first two seasons (26 episodes) of the Cold War era spy series starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are available to stream on Amazon Prime.
