SUPER BOWL POOPING YOU OUT? DESTINATION AMERICA OFFERS GAME-DAY ALTERNATIVE WITH THE "TOILET BOWL": A MARATHON OF ITS SERIES "KING OF THRONES"

(Silver Spring, MD) - No matter what leaves you pooped this Super Bowl Sunday, Destination America has your bathroom break handled with the "TOILET BOWL," an afternoon marathon of its series KING OF THRONES, featuring the truly most significant "bowl" in our lives: the toilet. Take a much-needed timeout with Destination America's game-day marathon of KING OF THRONES from 12-3 PM ET on Sunday, February 2.

"Flush with our ongoing success and looking at how others are approaching the Super Bowl with Animal Planet having its "Puppy Bowl", and others hosting kitten and fish bowls, we will look to tank the competition with our series about the most unusual bathrooms with a stunt we're calling the "TOILET BOWL," said Marc Etkind, General Manager of Destination America. "We've always prided our efforts at Destination America to be #1 when it comes to #2 so, if the game is in the crapper and going down the tubes, please join us for a potty break on Super Bowl Sunday," added the always 'charmin' Etkind.

In KING OF THRONES, watch as boring, old and downright disgusting bathrooms are transformed into over-the-top prized potties and more. The series follows Hoxie Homes and Remodeling, a northern Minnesota-based crew of contractors, carpenters and designers who've built a crap-load of high-end bathrooms that feature giant flat-screen TVs, heated toilets, body dryers, and even shower jets for a dog. Led by Jeff Hoxie and his partner Dave Koob, the team will stop at nothing to meet their clients' imaginative needs.

The marathon schedule is as follows:

· 12 PM ET

High-Tech Bathroom & Mobile Outhouse

Ryan & Jess have a doorless bathroom that was planned so poorly, that anyone lying in their bed has a direct view of the toilet. Hoping to turn the washroom from a peep show to palace, Ryan wants the finest technology available, while Jess is seeking the spa treatment -- but will their budget match the giant wishlist? Then, in one of the strangest requests they've had, Jeff and Dave have a customer who wants a mobile porta-potty to bring with him on a frozen lake for ice fishing...through the bottom of the bathroom!

· 1 PM ET

Gadgets Galore Bathroom & Porta-Potty

Amy, a designer who worked hard to decorated her entire house, has decided she will let her husband, Roger have whatever he wants in the master bath -- but does she really mean it? Jeff and Dave are leery about having a designer as a client, but when Roger's bathroom ideas turn into major construction on the house, they may flip out before Amy does. Then, when the Lions Club needs a new bathroom for their annual outdoor fair, they go to straight to the kings of thrones. Jeff and Dave are given five days to come up with an elegant porta-potty that will be used by 1,000 people each day, AND must look like a covered wagon!

· 2 PM ET

Silent But Deadly Bathroom & Bachelor Pad

When a retired grandpa moves in and has to share the throne with 6-year-old twins, the chaos, and the smell, becomes too much for mom to take. Somehow, Jeff and Dave have to fix this bathroom to accommodate three generations of this frustrated family. Later, the guys take on a client living in a bachelor pad who is demanding more storage in the tiniest bathroom they've ever seen.
