Kid-Focused Presentation of NFL Wild Card Game to Feature Special Halftime Sneak Peek of Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years


Share it: @Nickelodeon @CBSSports #NickWildCard

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.--Dec. 15--CBS Sports and Nickelodeon are getting kids and families into the game with a special slime-filled presentation of the National Football League’s Wild Card game on Sunday, Jan. 10, at 4:30 p.m. (ET). The NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon will feature one-of-a-kind kid-focused content and Nick-themed elements throughout, including a special halftime presentation, guest reporters and original on-field graphics, virtual filters and more. The NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon will air alongside CBS Sports’ broadcast of the game on The CBS Television Network.

Update (1/4/21) - The game will be between the New Orleans Saints and the Chicago Bears!


Play-by-play announcer Noah Eagle will be joined by CBS Sports’ analyst Nate Burleson and Nick star Gabrielle Nevaeh Green (All That, Nickelodeon’s Unfiltered) in the booth to call the NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon. Additionally, Nick star Lex Lumpkin (All That, Nickelodeon’s Unfiltered) ­­­will serve as a reporter during the game. Nickelodeon’s coverage begins with “The SpongeBob SportsPants Countdown Special,” a sports-themed compilation special at 4 p.m. (ET) hosted by the Denver Broncos’ Von Miller, highlighting SpongeBob’s best sports moments and featuring pre-kickoff appearances by CBS Sports’ Jim Nantz and Tony Romo, as well as Eagle, Burleson and Green.


The NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon will also include a special halftime sneak peek of Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, which follows 10-year-old SpongeBob SquarePants and his pals as they spend their summer building underwater campfires, catching wild jellyfish, and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck at the craziest camp in the kelp forest, Kamp Koral. The series will debut in 2021 on ViacomCBS’s rebranded streaming service Paramount+ and then on Nickelodeon later in the year.

Gabrielle Nevaeh Green

“This is a first of its kind presentation for the NFL together with Nickelodeon, and we are very excited to create a unique telecast that will maximize the co-viewing appeal for kids and families, while maintaining the integrity of the game and its traditions,” said Sean McManus, Chairman, CBS Sports. “Partnering with Nickelodeon to showcase the NFL Playoffs is a great opportunity to highlight the power, depth and reach of ViacomCBS, as we continue to unlock the true potential of our merged company with the first of many opportunities between CBS Sports and our ViacomCBS family.”

Saints picked to beat Bears in Wild Card by Nickelodeon in first ever broadcast on network

The New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears will be the first in a one-of-a-kind broadcast on Nickelodeon. And both Nickelodeon stars picked the Saints to win.

The NFL has started a new initiative to get younger children involved in the game and the league. One part of the initiative is to broadcast games simultaneously on Nickelodeon, and the New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears Wild Card matchup on Sunday will be the first.

The Nickelodeon broadcast will be simultaneously cast with the CBS broadcast and will feature Gabrielle Nevaeh Green and Lex Lumpkin of Nickelodeon’s All That TV show. Green will be in the booth with Nate Burleson and Noah Eagles, meanwhile, Lumpkin will be an on-field reporter, but will take on an untraditional role in what the network is calling “Nickified.”

Of note, Green will become the first female to work a CBS NFL football booth during the playoffs. Not only is she just 15-years-old, but she is setting an example for the young women aspiring to be in her position.

When Canal Street Chronicles asked Green what this accomplishment meant to her, she had a very humble answer:

"It means the world. I am so honored that I can show little girls that look like me that they can do anything. If you put your mind to it, you can achieve. It is a true honor, and I am truly blessed to be the first.”

On the other hand, Lumpkin will be on the field in a reporters role, but naturally it will have a Nickelodeon look to it. We asked Lumpkin what that means and what we could expect from him on the sidelines:

"Everything about this program will have Nick elements all throughout. You can expect me to bring my energy to it and reporting and giving you the inside scoop on what’s happening.”

Obviously both of these Nickelodeon stars have their favorite football teams with Green pulling for the Los Angeles Rams and Lumpkin being a life-long fan of the Indianapolis Colts. However, when pressed, both agreed that the Saints had the clear advantage in this game and both expect New Orleans to come out on top. Lumpkin specifically cited the Saints depth as to why New Orleans has the best shot of the two teams to make it to the Divisional Round.

The NFL and Nickelodeon partnership only seems to be ramping up, and more broadcasts are expected in the future. Both Green and Lumpkin lauded the initiative and both agreed that they would love to continue having a part in it for seasons to come. This one of a kind broadcast is a great opportunity for younger kids to watch the game with their parents and get into the game of football.

While this is a true broadcast of the game, Burleson and Eagles will be sure to help break down the basics for young kids to better understand what it going on. Meanwhile, all the elements that kids love about Nickelodeon will be present throughout the game. Be sure to tune into this one-of-a-kind broadcast!

Nickelodeon’s Gabrielle Nevaeh Green and Noah Eagle prepare to call Sunday’s Chicago Bears playoff game: ‘I’ve been asked a lot if I’m going to get slimed ... I’m bringing a shower cap’

Gabrielle Nevaeh Green and Tony Romo are both set to work Sunday’s Chicago Bears-New Orleans Saints playoff game as TV commentators, yet they and their broadcasts differ in some respects.

To start with, Green is 15, not an NFL expert and part of the flashy, effects-filled coverage to be showcased on kid-vid cable’s Nickelodeon.

Oddly, it’s not clear at this writing if Romo, who missed the regular-season finale with Jim Nantz because of COVID-19 protocols, will cover Bears-Saints remotely for CBS or with Nantz in New Orleans.

Green, meanwhile, will be on site and in the booth with Noah Eagle on play-by-play and analyst Nate Burleson.

They’ll be supplemented by virtual slime, googly eyes, other special effects and appearances by SpongeBob SquarePants and other Nick regulars.

“I’m going to be up there with Mr. Nate and Mr. Noah providing some fun for the kids at home,” said Green, a regular on Nick’s “All That” sketch series and “Unfiltered,” a game show.

“I’m very new to football and I feel like a lot of kids and families at home who are going to be watching this broadcast are new as well, and that’s what’s so special about this. It’s bringing football to a brand-new audience. … It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Mr. Nate and Mr. Noah?

The deference is different too.

“My parents have always raised me to respect people who are older, so I’ll probably refer to them as Mr. Noah and Mr. Nate unless they say I can do otherwise,” Green said.

Eagle, the 24-year-old radio voice of the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers and son of CBS broadcaster Ian Eagle, isn’t used to being anyone’s “mister” yet.

“I’ll be honest, it’s the first time I’ve gotten it,” he said, indicating he and Burleson aren’t likely to go the whole game on such formal terms with Green and her Nickelodeon co-star, Lex Lumpkin, who will serve as a sideline reporter.

The Nickelodeon telecast is nothing if not a curiosity, a youth-oriented approach the NFL hopes will help sell the game to youngsters while the folks at Nick parent ViacomCBS see their own promotional opportunity.

It’s part of a fair amount of media experimentation during what the NFL bills as wild-card weekend.

On Sunday alone, these are among the English-language offerings:

- Besides the complementary coverage on CBS and Nick, set for 3:40 p.m. CT, the Bears-Saints game also will stream on CBS All Access and Amazon Prime. Those who don’t normally have access to Nickelodeon will be able to get it for free via the NFL app.

- The 12:05 p.m. Ravens-Titans game before it not only will run on ABC and ESPN, but there will be specialized iterations on ESPN2, streamer ESPN Plus and Freeform, where the so-called watch party with Jesse Palmer and Maria Taylor will include DJ Khaled.

- After the Bears, NBC’s Browns-Steelers nightcap at 7:15 will stream on Peacock, where there will be a special postgame show.

Nickelodeon’s game coverage will be preceded by “The SpongeBob SportsPants Countdown Special,” which will feature SpongeBob sports clips.

Its halftime show will be a preview of “Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years,” a show about SpongeBob and pals when they were youngsters attending summer camp that’s supposed to debut later this year, first on Paramount Plus (which is what CBS All Access will be rebranded) and then Nickelodeon.

“But the main goal here is to try to captivate a new (NFL) audience potentially and to allow for a family-friendly platform,” Eagle said. “A father might want to watch the game, and they have maybe a 9-year-old and an 11-year-old. … Now you might be able to get the interest of those kids because the dad can watch the game and the two kids can now join in and say, ‘Well, they’ve got this fun pop-up, they have the slime and this and that.’ ”

Eagle has been involved in tweaks to traditional sportscasting before. One NBA Summer League game he did featured “dueling homers” with an analyst representing each team, leaving Eagle to not only give play-by-play, but also score their arguments a la ESPN’s “Around the Horn.” He has been the voice for an NBA telecast in virtual reality.

“This is similar to those,” Eagle said. “You want to blend and blur the lines between staying very serious on the sport, making sure you’re calling the action, but also having fun and bringing in the entertainment side of things.

“Nickelodeon is making it super easy for me with all the elements they’re going to provide and all of the characters I can tap into, all of the shows that I can quote, and I’m really excited to work with Gabby and Lex because they can bring a fresh perspective to the game.”

A big challenge will be balancing the heavy lifting of describing the game for those who know the sport well while teaching it to viewers who might not.

“We want to make sure we’re including everybody,” Eagle said. “My priority is still going to be, if there is a big play, we’re going to call it as a big play and Nate will try to break it down in simple terms.”

Green expects to joke around a bit and comment some, but her primary role may be simply seeking explanation about what she sees.

While she considers herself a fan of her hometown teams — the Los Angeles Rams and Jacksonville Jaguars — her TV football experience to date consists of Nickelodeon sending her to media night at the Super Bowl.

“I got to interview Patrick Mahomes, which was incredible,” she said, describing Sunday’s assignment as “definitely out of the traditional comfort zone for me” but exciting.

A practice broadcast a few weeks back with Eagle and Burleson off a recording of the Chiefs’ Week 5 loss to the visiting Raiders was encouraging.

“Gabby asked questions that … keyed into the action that elicited good answers and teaching moments,” Eagle said. “Gabby’s inexperience with the game, combined with her experience of being a fan of those two teams, provides us with a good lens of how we can introduce some newer fans to the game.”

He and Burleson will get other assistance as well.

“Characters from shows that will be featured on Nickelodeon either now or in the future will pop up and explain penalties and other things in the game so we don’t have to do it,” Eagle said.

“I’ve been asked a lot if I’m going to get slimed, and the answer is, ‘I’m bringing a shower cap just in case.’ ”

Green said she is “the slimer, not the slimee.”

Knowing how quickly NFL fans can judge TV coverage, perhaps that shouldn’t be their biggest concern.

“You know, three people in a booth is always a balancing act, as is, but it seemed to really work seamlessly,” Eagle said of their dry run.

“People are going to walk away impressed with Gabby. We’re ready. We’ve been looking forward to this for a couple of weeks and we’re excited that it’s finally here.”

Nickelodeon broadcast of Bears-Saints wild-card game will be like nothing you’ve seen

Nick star Gabrielle Nevaeh Green, 15, who will join play-by-play voice Noah Eagle and analyst Nate Burleson in the booth, described it succinctly: “It’s gonna be Nick-ified.”

I couldn’t tell you exactly when cable TV arrived at my childhood home in the mid-1980s. But I can tell you exactly what I watched.

WTBS for Braves games, WOR for Mets games, MTV for music videos – and Nickelodeon for fun.

So when I saw the Bears-Saints wild-card game Sunday was chosen to air on Nick as a complement to the CBS broadcast, I was struck by a wave of nostalgia and green slime.

The variety show “You Can’t Do That on Television” introduced me to the gooey stuff. The game show “Double Dare” doubled down on making a mess with its obstacle course. The cartoon “The Ren & Stimpy Show” cracked me up. (I do a dead-on impression of Ren, by the way.)

Now an NFL game will appear on Nick, and it won’t look like anything you’ve seen.

Real-time animations, appearances from the network’s characters and, of course, virtual slime.

Gabrielle Nevaeh Green, of Nick’s sketch show “All That” and game show “Unfiltered,” will be in the booth. She described the broadcast succinctly: “It’s gonna be Nick-ified.”

Professionals will call the game with Green, 15. Noah Eagle, the Clippers’ radio voice and 24-year-old son of broadcaster Ian Eagle, will have the play-by-play, and former wide receiver Nate Burleson, of CBS Sports and NFL Network, will provide analysis. Another Nick star, Lex Lumpkin, will serve as the reporter.

The point of the broadcast is simple: promote the league and the game to a young audience. So it made sense that CBS, which is producing the game in association with ViacomCBS’ Nickelodeon, reached out to Eagle to gauge his interest in calling it. A longtime Nick viewer himself, Eagle jumped at the chance.

“This was something that really catered to my interests,” he said. “When I’m calling Clipper games, I like to blend and blur the lines between sports, entertainment, pop culture, TV, movies, music, etc. So to have something that is literally built for that, I guess you could say I’m built for this. I’m excited for it.”

Eagle rattled off the Nick shows he used to watch as though he had just watched them.

“I never get to say, ‘Back in my day.’ I’m usually the young guy,” he said. “Well, back in my day, I watched ‘Drake & Josh’ a lot, ‘iCarly,’ ‘Zoey 101,’ ‘SpongeBob,’ ‘Fairly OddParents,’ ‘Jimmy Neutron.’ Before that, the original ‘All That,’ ‘The Amanda Show,’ ‘Double Dare.’ I was so excited when I heard Gabby and Lex are on this reboot of ‘All That’ because I loved the show growing up.”

This won’t be Green’s first go-round with the NFL. She appeared at Super Bowl Media Night last season and said she’s hoping to reach a specific audience.

“I’m really hoping to inspire young girls and just let them know that they can do whatever they set their minds to because this is unique,” she said. “You don’t normally see women up in the booth with the guys. So I’m honored in that sense to be a part of this.

“I’m gonna be there cracking jokes, asking questions that people at home may have and also having a blast. That’s really the main focus of this broadcast, and I feel like people at home are gonna feel that, as well.”

Eagle knows he can’t stray too far into the weeds of football jargon considering the audience.

“I’m not gonna be telling 11-year-olds that [Saints tight end] Jared Cook high-pointed the football,” Eagle said. “At the same time, I know that part of the audience is going to be experienced football fans. But we do need to include all of those who are watching early in their football fandom, and the goal here is to welcome in a new audience of fans.”

As for the game, Eagle wonders how long of a leash Bears coach Matt Nagy will give quarterback Mitch Trubisky given Nick Foles’ playoff history. He thinks the Bears’ key will be controlling possession.

“Can David Montgomery run effectively enough so that you keep that Saints offense off the field long enough to give yourself a chance to win?” Eagle said. “And I think it’s very, very possible for Chicago to do exactly that.”

As huge underdogs (I’ve seen the line as big as 10.5), the Bears face long odds of doing that. Might as well watch the game through a child’s eyes and enjoy the show.

REMOTE PATROL

- Nickelodeon’s coverage begins at 3 p.m. with “The SpongeBob SportsPants Countdown Special,” hosted by Broncos linebacker Von Miller. Jim Nantz and Tony Romo, who will call the game for CBS, will appear. SpongeBob also will be featured during the halftime show because, well, he’s SpongeBob!

- ESPN is giving the Ravens-Titans game at noon Sunday its MegaCast treatment, the first time it has done so for an NFL game. Six networks (ESPN, ABC, ESPN2, Freeform, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+) will provide various forms of coverage. I recommend checking out the Film Room on ESPN2.

'All That' Stars Lex Lumpkin and Gabrielle Nevaeh Green Preview Nickelodeon's NFL Playoff Game (Exclusive)


The NFL Playoffs begin on Saturday and run into Sunday with six high-profile matchups between Super Bowl-hopeful teams. The second day will feature a unique broadcast with Nickelodeon airing the game between the New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears. All That star Gabrielle Nevaeh Green will join play-by-play announcer Noah Eagle and CBS Sports analyst Nate Burleson in the booth to call the action. At the same time, co-star Lex Lumpkin will showcase his abilities as a sideline reporter.

Speaking with PopCulture.com and other media ahead of Sunday's playoff game, Lumpkin and Green detailed their temporary transitions from sketch comedy to covering live sports. Joining Burleson and Eagle for an NFL game is not a direct translation, but the two actors can use their experiences at other live events. Additionally, they put in considerable work to fully prepare for the upcoming game.

"I didn't specifically reach out to anyone," Lumpkin said about other sideline reporters, "but I did do research in watching them and seeing how they did it. Watching how they reacted to certain things and what they might have said when they were up." Lumpkin also jokingly clarified that he is ready for any errant footballs that may head in his direction during the course of the game and that he is ready to "juke them" while providing his reports.

Green also put in her own work in anticipation of joining the booth to provide analysis. She joined Burleson and Eagle for some test runs to ensure that everything will proceed smoothly on Sunday. This film study couldn't account for any wild situations on the field, such as a previous fight featuring players from the Saints and Bears, but it helped the trio build their chemistry.

"We watched a game together, and we practiced calling it," Green explained. "We practiced interjecting our own personalities into it and making it really fun because this is what this game is really about. It's about bringing fun to kids and families and being a great introduction, especially if you are new to football. ... We watched a few games; they helped me learn the lingo, who was who, what not to do, and what to do."

When it came to determining who would take on the specific roles, both actors clarified that it was an easy process. Green said that Lumpkin is perfect for the field due to his energy while she has to remain "sharp and focused" in the booth. Lumpkin added that being closer to the players and the action as a fan of football was "going to be really cool" for him.

Green and Lumpkin will make their NFL debuts on Sunday when the Chicago Bears face off with the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The game will take place at 4:40 p.m. ET on CBS and Nickelodeon. Lumpkin promises that fans tuning into Nickelodeon will "have no shortage of slime."

The Bears on Nickelodeon: A “Nick-i-fied” experience

The Bears and Saints are the subjects of a special, family-themed broadcast for their Sunday playoff matchup. There’s plenty to get excited about. In other words, “I’m ready! I’m ready! I’m ready!

As a kid who grew up in the early 2000s, there were a few obvious, prominent staples of my childhood. Nintendo and Mario and Zelda, as for many, was an obvious crutch. The Bears, for better or worse, were also featured prominently. But like for many millennials, much of my formative years came to be defined by the happy-go-lucky laughter of a yellow sponge, a whimsical nautical town at the very depths of the ocean, and overall wholesome programming on Nickelodeon.

All these years later, seeing two of those staples — the Bears and Nickelodeon — be meshed together on this coming Sunday should be quite the experience.

In case you haven’t heard, Sunday’s Wild Card Game matchup between the Bears and Saints in New Orleans will be simulcast on both CBS and the popular children’s television channel, Nickelodeon. A special edition of The NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon will air alongside CBS’s official pre-game broadcast. For those tuning in, expect to be taken aback by a fun family affair focused on kids with unique graphics, guest reporters, perhaps a certain surprise or three at intermittent points, and popular Nick cartoon characters (yellow sponges, anyone?). To the SpongeBob heads: The festivities begin with The Spongebob SportsPants Countdown Special at 4:00 p.m. ET, hosted by Jim Nantz and Tony Romo. We’ll see if Mr. Romo can accurately predict SpongeBob’s play-calls before any of the snaps.

In addition to being called by Noah Eagle and Nate Burleson, those mentioned guest reporters and broadcasters — Gabrielle Nevaeh Green and Lex Lumpkin — will also feature heavily. Nevaeh Green will be in the play-by-play booth with Eagle and Burleson, while Lumpkin will serve as the lead sideline reporter.

Nevaeh Green and Lumpkin are cast members on Nickelodeon’s kids’ sketch-comedy series All That, as well as panelists on the remotely produced game show Nickelodeon’s Unfiltered. Two rising up-and-comers, both are hoping for only an entertaining family-friendly affair on Sunday, but a thrilling January and February playoff season overall.

I had a short but productive conversation with the All That duo as they get set to call Bears-Saints, and what is certain to be a joyful, green slime-filled affair.

Windy City Gridiron: How are you guys viewing this opportunity with the Bears, Saints, and Nickelodeon on Sunday? Is this your first time calling a professional sporting event?
Gabrielle Nevaeh Green: This will be my first time calling a game, but I’m very happy to have Noah and Nate there to show me the ropes, which gives me a sense of ease to think about. I’m really excited to show off my new skills on Sunday!

Lex Lumpkin: This, too, is my first time “calling a game,” so to speak, given that I’ll be reporting. But I’ve actually gotten to work with the NFL before. I’ve been on hand for Media Night at the Super Bowl. I’ve gotten to meet stars like Rob Gronkowski, Patrick Mahomes, and Travis Kelce.

It’s not my first experience with the NFL, but it is my first time reporting. I think I’m going to do well! (Laughs)

Windy City Gridiron: What are you most looking forward to, concerning the broadcast? Obviously this is a family-centered affair, on Nickelodeon, and it is a playoff game, so it’s not lacking incentives.
Gabrielle Nevaeh Green: I’m excited by the fact that is a family-oriented game. That it’s specifically oriented towards kids and families is incredible because it’s a great introduction to people who haven’t been keeping up with football lately, or haven’t been football fans for a long time.

It’ll be a great way to learn about how the game works, all of the different components included. Ultimately, I’m thrilled to bring football to new fans.

Lex Lumpkin: My personal excitement stems from two amazing programs like the NFL and Nickelodeon creating something together that we haven’t seen before.

To see how it works out, to see how football and Nick come together, well, I’m anxious to get to Sunday already. It’s a new way of watching football, to be sure.

Windy City Gridiron: I’m aware of potential spoilers, but are there any hints you guys could give fans as to surprises or special events within the Nickelodeon broadcast?
Lex Lumpkin: (Laughs) We can give you a little bit, you know?

There’ll be Nick-themed elements throughout. As examples: You might see virtual slime cams going off when either team scores a touchdown. You might see Patrick Star in the stands and audience as a fan.

Be on the lookout.

Gabrielle Nevaeh Green: We also have a special halftime show that will feature a look at Kamp Koral: Spongbob’s Under Years, and it’ll be incredible.

Windy City Gridiron: How would you personally describe this transition from working in a comedy setting like All That, as an example, to something like football, the NFL, and sports? How do bridge that transition on your own?
Gabrielle Nevaeh Green: It’s very similar because we both come from improv backgrounds. We have to be able to think on our feet. We have to be able to spit jokes out on the drop of a dime.

We’re used to this dynamic, in that sense, and I think we’ll give the audience a good show.

Windy City Gridiron: Finally, for posterity’s sake, who’s winning Super Bowl LV?

Lex Lumpkin: (A Colts fan) I’m hoping the Colts. I’m hoping the Colts can go up against somebody like the Bears, again. But, I think Green Bay will get there. The Chiefs won last year, and they are obviously the top seed.

I’ll go with either of those teams as a final answer: The Chiefs or Packers.

Gabrielle Nevaeh Green: (A Rams fan) I can’t disagree with that. The Chiefs did win last year and are the reigning champs. You can’t count them out on that alone. I obviously do hope the Rams make it (laughs), but the Chiefs feel like a safe bet to win it all again.
