Let’s face it, Super Bowl 51 will probably be the most watched television event this weekend, however, not everyone is a sports fan. Luckily, there are plenty of other things to watch while everyone else is tuned into the big game.

Super Bowl 2017 is scheduled to kick off on Sunday, Feb. 5, at 6:30 p.m. EST on Fox with the New England Patriots facing off against the Atlanta Falcons. The highly anticipated game is expected to air until 10 p.m. EST, which means those who are not particularly fond of the classic game will have to find something else to watch.

There are plenty of movies, marathons and even a television special that will be airing during Super Bowl Sunday. Check out what will be on television during the big game:
