CBS Sports, Nickelodeon Unleash Second Slime-Filled NFL Wild Card Presentation During 49ers-Cowboys on Jan. 16
CBS Sports and Nickelodeon’s special slime-filled presentation during the NFL’s Super Wild Card Weekend will feature the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Dallas Cowboys during the NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon on Sunday, Jan. 16, at 4:30 p.m. (ET). The special presentation will air alongside CBS Sports’ broadcast of the game on The CBS Television Network, and is one of six games during Super Wild Card Weekend across Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
CBS Sports’ play-by-play announcer Noah Eagle, CBS Sports’ analyst and former NFL star Nate Burleson, and Nick star Gabrielle Nevaeh Green (That Girl Lay Lay) will call the game from the booth for the second consecutive year. Nick star Young Dylan (Dylan Gilmer, Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan) makes his debut as sideline reporter.
Following the success of last season’s telecast, this year’s NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon will feature enhanced original on-field graphics; advanced augmented reality including an AR blimp that will fly throughout the stadium; a special pregame and halftime presentation; guest appearances from Nickelodeon characters; and much more for kids and families. Iain Armitage (CBS’ Young Sheldon) will return to help explain penalty calls during the game, and one of game’s top performers will once again be presented with the Nickelodeon Valuable Player (NVP) award which can be voted on at NFLNickPlay.com. This season, NFL Slimetime – a weekly show on Nickelodeon airing Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. ET – included weekly NVP awards, featuring fun and slime-filled celebrations by the players.
At halftime, look for the special exclusive look of Nickelodeon’s brand-new animated series Big Nate, based on the best-selling children’s books and comic strip written and drawn by Lincoln Peirce. The series follows Nate, a sixth-grade kid who has a never-ending need to prove his awesomeness to the world and is set to debut on Paramount+ in early 2022.
The NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon will be streamed via the NFL app on phones and tablets for free. CBS Sports’ telecast will also be streamed across digital devices via Paramount+, the CBS Sports app, NFL digital properties, and on mobile on the participating teams’ mobile properties and Yahoo Sports.
