NFT: Best 60 minutes of your day...beyond awful

KingBlue : 6/16/2017 11:15 am
I record and watch PTI everyday and have done so for years. I like Wilbon and Kornheiser and PTI is the only ESPN programming that I consistently watch (other than 30 for 30). I sometimes will watch Around the Horn and I watched the Sports Reporters on Sunday mornings for years. Anyway with all the changes at ESPN and all the folks they let go...it is mind boggling to me that they kept this annoying, nerdy, Michael Smith.

He is a no talent hack that must have dirty pictures of ESPN executive family members. They stole the tagline "best 60 minutes of your day from Mike and Mike... who used something similar to describe time spent with former ESPN NFL analyst Chris Carter during football Monday's.

I don't understand the thinking behind putting this show hosted by Smith and Jemele Hill for the prime time sportscenter at 6:00pm... The ratings have to be far worse than they have ever been for that time slot.

Rant over.
Agree 100%. Prime Time Sports Center is officially

Same, and it's not from some stubborn "F ESPN!" attitude. It's simply not a quality product anymore.

Yeah. They don't put on anything I really care to watch anymore...
I haven't watched a stitch of SportsCenter in years.

And I do mean years. So with all the disbelief and gnashing of teeth when Hill and Smith weren't canned in the last round of layoffs, I decided to put on an episode to see if it as really as bad as everyone as saying. I thought people might be overstating it out of dislike for Hill. But they really weren't. It really is *that* bad. I guess I'm out of touch, because I just don't see the thought process. I have no idea how it passes for sports news.
Wait. You guys are not down with

who likes that show. It is abysmal.

I canceled my cable long ago since it's a shame to pay losers like that their salaries.

Sportscenter used to be awesome TV with the highlights, all about sports. Now it's some sort of Bullshit program about culture and nonsense featuring two absolute bores.

I doubt people were watching what was there before and the suits said, "Fuck it, let's put these 2 there instead." Maybe their ratings are terrible, but I'm fairly certain what they replaced had terrible ratings too.

Highlights are available literally everywhere on the internet. Does anyone really care what John Clayton has to say?
