Beth Stern on Kitten Bowl II: “I pinch myself when I say I’m the host”

Beth Stern on Kitten Bowl II: "I pinch myself when I say I’m the host"

Even a cursory glance at Beth Stern’s background will show you how much of an animal lover she is, so she was a natural fit to host Hallmark Channel’s inaugural “Kitten Bowl” last year. The experience was so enjoyable for her that she is back again this year when “Kitten Bowl II” airs on Super Bowl Sunday. “I got such wonderful feedback,” Stern says of the fan response via social media last year. “As it was happening, I was getting immediate response and people were just melting over the cuteness.

Preview: Super Bowl XLIX Commercials

Preview: Super Bowl XLIX Commercials

Super Bowl XLIX is less than a week away, and we’re already seeing some of the big-budget ads that will play during the big game.

Releasing commercials prior to the game also allows advertisers to create a longer message than the pricy 30-second spots that will air on Super Bowl Sunday. As commercials become available, we’ll post them here.  And check back on Monday, Feb. 2, for … Continue reading
