Ranking the Top 10 ESPN Shows, Part I

The Daily Sports Obsession

Love it or hate it, if you’re a die-hard sports fan, you can’t live without ESPN. The news, highlights and commentary around the clock is a necessity for those trying to stay in the know. But everyone has shows they like more than others on the Worldwide Leader. In this two-part “series” I will count them down, starting with today, where I’ll count down 10-6. What are the best shows on ESPN (not counting Sportscenter or ESPN News)? Let’s do it!

Michelle Beadle and Colin Cowherd used to be must-see TV every afternoon as Beadle never backed down from Cowherd’s know-it-all personality and proved she knew her stuff and wasn’t just “eye-candy” for male viewers.

  1. Sorry, but I have to completely reject the premise. It is EXCEPTIONALLY easy to live without ESPN. In fact, I would say that if you really want to stay truly informed about all things sports, ESPN should be your ABSOLUTELY LAST source of information.

    It wasn’t always this way. ESPN used to be the best thing on television before it was purchased by ABC/Disney. Since then, it has become an omni-directional sludge pump with absolutely no redeeming value (other than live sporting events and the occasional “30 for 30” which isn’t a crap-fest). ESPN has become to sports what McDonald’s is to food; a lowest-common demoninator striving for the broadest common appeal rather than quality.

    Look at how many of the shows you listed are filled with uitterly pointless debate, much of which is completely manufactured by ESPN so they have something to talk about.

    The bottom line is the days of ESPN being a contributor to the world of sports are long gone. The days of it being a bottom-feeding parasite on the world of sports are here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future.
