The Kitten Bowl 2020 (or Kitten Bowl VII) airs today — Sunday, February 2, 2020 — on The Hallmark Channel at 2 p.m. Eastern/ 2 p.m. Pacific. An encore will then air again at 5 p.m. Eastern on the Hallmark Channel. This is a favorite event during the Super Bowl, since many people love to take a break from the football game to watch these adorable rescue kittens.

Kitten Bowl Preview
The Kitten Bowl kicks off at 2 p.m. Eastern on Sunday, February 2, 2020. It’s the “purrfect” alternative to the Super Bowl — or just a great addition to an already fun day. An encore will air at 5 p.m. Eastern. The Kitten Bowl is two hours long and will end at 4 p.m. Eastern.
According to Hallmark, the Kitten Bowl is “a feline catstravaganza presented in association with North Shore Animal League America (the nation’s largest no-kill shelter and animal adoption organization) and Last Hope Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation. Hosted by Beth Stern.”
Hallmark says about Beth Stern, the host: “TV personality, author and animal advocate Beth Stern returns as host for this year’s event from Hallmark Channel Stadium. Stern embodies the spirit of adoption in her everyday life, having fostered countless animals in need. Stern’s tireless year-round efforts to find homes for animals makes her a synergistic fit to lead the charge for Kitten Bowl VII.”
