Why "Puppy Bowl III" reeked.

I watched a few minutes of "Puppy Bowl III" at 3PM and during boring moments of the SuperBowl.

It would have been cool to see hours of live, unscripted chaos of puppies and kittens running loose in a football-shaped room. It might have been even cooler to try to set up some kind of scoring system. What we were presented with was heavily over-edited, and obviously not live. It was as if someone taped a whole day's chaos of puppies & kittens, then boiled it down to the cutest 15 minutes in very short segments, and put it on a tape loop over an entire afternoon. It was more insulting to our intelligence than endearing.
