          Hallmark Channel flies the "W" when America's most athletic and lovable kittens meet in Hallmark Channel Stadium to grind it out in the rock 'em, sock 'em annual gridiron event, "Kitten Bowl IV," Sunday, February 5 at 12 p.m. ET/PT.  TV personality, author and animal advocate Beth Stern returns to host America's "purr-ferred" Super Sunday football championship.  Stern is joined by Peabody Award-winning reporter, Mary Carillo, the voice of the New York Yankees John Sterling, and four-time Pro Bowl quarterback and Feline Football League Commissioner (FFL) Boomer Esiason to capture every adorable moment of fleet-footed, fur-flying kitten football.

          Occasionally, there is friendly fire: kittens have been known to tackle their own teammates as they claw their way up goal posts to victory.  One thing is for certain: "Kitten Bowl" is as entertaining as it is good!  The annual programming event has resulted in the adoption of thousands of cats and kittens (and even some puppies and rabbits) and is a core part of Crown Media Family Networks PETS initiative to showcase the plight of homeless animals and the beautiful pets available for adoption through local shelters.  The three-hour Original Special is a viewer favorite and one of the top drivers of social media on Super Bowl Sunday.  These kittens are ferocious, sweet, and ready to compete!

          “The ‘Kitten Bowl’ franchise is at the heart of Crown Media Family Networks' PETS initiative,” said Bill Abbott, President and CEO, Crown Media Family Networks.

          “As proud as we are of the thousands of animals that have found forever homes because of 'Kitten Bowl,' and many of our other pet-centric programs, we dream of a day when shelters will be empty because every animal has a loving home,” Abbott concluded.

          North Shore Animal League America and Last Hope Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation provide adoptable kittens annually for the "Kitten Bowl" franchise.  Spoiler alert: all of 2017's feline football stars have been adopted.
