I was just about ready to write the exact same thing. What a rip-off of a show I, Max is. I hate Stat Boy on ATH, and I wish Max never would have left. Woody and Jay M. still make the show watchable, but I haven't watched it nearly as much since Max left.

At the same time, my PTI watching has never and will never diminish until it kicks the bucket. :-)

I agree 100%. PTI is far and away the best. The others seemed so staged and no one really believes anything they say but just take opposing views. Tony and Wilbon just seem like two guys talking sports.

I thought that he did well today too. A bit more natural making comments to the panel, Stat Boy barely said much.

I, Max is all right, but right now it's just so hackish. The pause is pretty weak compared to mute, and I think Fox might need to tinker with the show to give it some legs.

But yeah, PTI is perfect. My only wish is that Wilbon was always in studio and wasn't on remotes.

PTI is by far the best... ;-D

I really don't like Zack on ATH...he uses the mute way to much...I like watching it to here the arguments between the panel....and I think Zack is interfering in it to much.... :-/
