Sick of football? Think Tom Brady was one of “The Brady Bunch”?

No sweat.

When millions tune in to CBS’ coverage of the Patriots and Panthers in the Super Bowl on Sunday, there will be plenty of places for the non-football fan to turn.

Realizing that most of the football audience is male, programmers have put together marathons of movies and series geared for women.

Those offerings range from a collection of chick flicks to back-to-back-to-back episodes of the fixer-up show “Trading Spaces.”

Here’s a sample of Sunday’s alternatives:

•TBS offers a day’s worth of female-friendly movies, including “Beaches” with Bette Midler at 11 a.m., Whoopi Goldberg’s “Sister Act” at 4 p.m. and “The Wedding Planner,” starring Jennifer Lopez, at 8 p.m.

•AMC presents a trio of thrillers under the “Amityville Horror” banner starting at 5:30 p.m.
