This has the potential to be the greatest thing to ever happen to football.
The upcoming NFL playoffs will feature a special Wild Card Game on Jan. 10 that will be simulcast on both CBS and…NICKELODEON!!!!
The game will feature “one-of-a-kind kid-focused content and Nick-themed elements throughout,” according to a press release. A halftime show, guest reporters, and more are all planned for the game.
“This is a first of its kind presentation for the NFL together with Nickelodeon, and we are very excited to create a unique telecast that will maximize the co-viewing appeal for kids and families, while maintaining the integrity of the game and its traditions,” Sean McManus, Chairman, CBS Sports, said in the release. “Partnering with Nickelodeon to showcase the NFL Playoffs is a great opportunity to highlight the power, depth and reach of ViacomCBS, as we continue to unlock the true potential of our merged company with the first of many opportunities between CBS Sports and our ViacomCBS family.”
The announcing crew will feature Noah Eagle, CBS Sports’ analyst Nate Burleson and Nick star Gabrielle Nevaeh Green (All That, Nickelodeon’s Unfilter).
The halftime show will include a sneak peak at the new SpongeBob show, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years.
I don’t care what I have to do to make this happen, but please, Please, PLEASE find a way to slime Bill Belichick.
The sizzle reel is below.
SpongeBob, Slime, and Googly Eyes, @NFLonCBS and @Nickelodeon will present the NFL like you’ve NEVER seen it before on Wild Card Weekend.
