Super Bowl LVIII is finally here, and it will be a special one. That’s because Paramount+ will be providing a family-friendly broadcast of the NFL championship game for the first time. The popular Nickelodeon broadcast of NFL holiday games will be heading to Allegiant Stadium for Super Bowl 58 between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. The big game kicked off today and is being broadcast on CBS and Nickelodeon, and streamed on Paramount+.
Honoring its 25th anniversary, the cast of SpongeBob SquarePants will highlight Nickelodeon’s coverage. SpongeBob (voiced by Tom Kenny) and Patrick Star (voiced by Bill Fagerbakke) will join CBS Sports analyst Nate Burleson and play-by-play announcer Noah Eagle to call the game. Sandy Cheeks (voiced by Carolyn Lawrence) will join the group as a sideline reporter.
The much-loved SpongeBob SquarePants cartoon has reigned as the most-watched animated series for 21 consecutive years, making this Super Bowl alternate broadcast one to watch. This isn’t the first foray into the broadcast spectrum for Fagerbakke, who had a viral moment making his broadcasting debut in the NickMas game in 2022.
“That was just kind of me responding from all the endless trivia and details we as sports fans immerse ourselves in,” Fagerbakke told CBS Sports as he laughed reliving the moment. “That was such a great quote a few years back about Russell Wilson to just let Russ cook, so it just bubbled out. I was enjoying the Rams not being awful (Fagerbakke is a Rams fan).
“We’re all about the bubbles in Bikini Bottom, Jeff,” Kenny added.
