STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Unidentified Man: Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl III.

INSKEEP: For three hours, puppies tumbled in a football-themed playroom on television.

(Soundbite of TV show "Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl III")

Unidentified Man: Oh, no. Did he fumble or did his knee touch before he dropped it? Let's watch the replay.

INSKEEP: That announcer also took us through a halftime show with kittens.

(Soundbite of TV show "Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl III")

Unidentified Man: Folks, it doesn't get much more exciting than this.

INSKEEP: Or maybe it does. It's MORNING EDITION.
