Every Super Bowl Sunday brings a big choice for people who are both football and television fans — do you watch your regularly scheduled programs or do you watch the Super Bowl? Of course, some Sunday night programming makes this decision easier by opting out of the Sunday night competition altogether. With that in mind, will Keeping Up With The Kardashians air on Super Bowl Sunday?
E! has been teasing clips from Kris Jenner’s big, Great Gatsby-themed 60th birthday party and Kylie and Tyga’s relationship drama for upcoming episode, “Family First.” But, this episode is actually slated to air Feb. 14 — a week after the Super Bowl.

Though the motivations are different, football games, like reality TV, have been known to get ugly.
Everyone Is Wearing Tight Pants
Be it haute couture or an athletic uniform, leggings are leggings.
It Can Be Boring
Sometimes reality TV is too realistic and not dramatic enough (although you'd pretty much never be able to accuse the Kardashians of that). And, sometimes two equally matched teams can’t score. Snore …
Surprisingly Graphic Content
Hey, we saw Kourtney Kardashian pull a baby out of herself. Bones break during football games. You have to be tough to keep up with the Kardashians and the NFL.
Kim May Still Be There
Last year, Kim appeared in a Super Bowl ad for T-Mobile. Considering that she endorses many products, who knows, she or another member of the family could be back in ad for Super Bowl 50!
