Sports fans, rejoice! Super Bowl LII is Sunday, February 4, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. ET.

The New England Patriots face off against the Philadelphia Eagles—but it has promise to be an interesting game even if you’re just watching for the commercials, Pink’s national anthem or Justin Timberlake’s halftime performance (even though it has been shrouded by controversy as of late).

Those who don’t like Super Bowl Sundays, sports, television, or pop music (but attend the party anyway) can enjoy the snacks.

And for those of you who like none of those things, you can tune into the Puppy Bowl, which starts after the Kitten Bowl, at 3 p.m. ET.

The night is sure to include politics, as Patriots' star Tom Brady and President Trump have a 14-year bromance under their belts.

The Eagles, well, they're the underdogs. But if you just want to watch a dang football game, you've come to the right place.

Here’s all the info you need to know to tune in.
