Weekend update

Seth Meyers may not be suiting up for Sunday's big game, but he's still pulling plenty of related duties. He'll introduce clips on "A Saturday Night Live Sports Special" (7 p.m.) and serve as host for "NFL Honors" (8 p.m.), an event in which the best players and plays of the year are revealed. Let's keep the deflated balls jokes to a minimum, Mr. Meyers. Saturday, KARE, Ch. 11

A case of whiplash

The two near-guarantees for the upcoming Academy Awards are that J.K. Simmons and Patricia Arquette will each be making acceptance speeches for their supporting roles. Arquette is busy preparing for her new CBS drama, "CSI: Cyber," but Simmons has made time to to host "Saturday Night Live" and quite possibly drive the band's drummer insane. 10:29 p.m. Saturday, KARE, Ch. 11

Pets R us

More and more TV executives too scared — or too stupid — to program anything with weight against the Super Bowl show off their funny sides with the ridiculous. "Kitten Bowl II" (11 a.m. Sunday, Hallmark Channel) kicks things off, followed later by "Puppy Bowl XI" (6 p.m. Animal Planet), but the real winner in this insanity contest is "Fish Bowl II" (7 p.m. NGW) in which viewers simply watch goldfish swim around for a few hours. Can "Popcorn Bowl" be far behind?
