ESPN's Who's Now

Postby Smooth » Mon Aug 06, 2007 3:57 pm

Anyone else think that ESPN 's Who's Now series was the biggest waste of airtime in the history of television. I know that I immediately went for the remote when that segment came on.

aside from BBTN, ESPN in general has been the biggest waste of airtime in recent memory.

I can't really see the entire point of it considering how obvious it was that Tiger Woods was going to win.

I'm another who switches the channel / jabs a fork into my eye

This is what half the show boiled down to

"So who's more now, Tiger Woods or Cesaer Izturis?"
Michael Irvin "Well its not THAT far apart because Cesaer..."

%-6 Shut UP.

A total waste of time. Why would I want to hear what Kevin James has to say about LeBron James? Don't they have analysts to tell me about that? The whole "Now" thing came off as something MTV would do. Two :-t :-t to ESPN.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

it was a worse idea than "Cop Rock" and "Shasta McNasty"...i'm sure some old senior VP D-bag came up with it and no one wanted to tell him it was a dumb idea because they wanted to leave and hit the bars

Question for anyone who watched the show... was it any different than any of the Battles we run here at the Cafe? Fundamentally, isn't that what the show was?

And if so, how can they be dumb enough not to know that a concept like that doesn't translate well from a forum (where they stole the idea from, obviously, the spies) to "major" cable television?

Duh? :-B
