I thought Dennis Miller was great. Kornheiser, not so much.

<i>record-setting, inaugural 'Monday Night Football' season. </i>

Exactly what record did they set? Highest number of idiotic things said by an ex jock? Most references to fantasy football while talking over real football? Drunkest special guest? Highest number of guests who knew nothing about the game?

It got to the point where I had to mute the sound just so I could watch the game.

Most inane interview with a washed up celebrity by a verbally challenged sports figure, I think, Mr. ck_IN.

At least he knows what a turnover on downs is

Furthermore, how can something be "inaugural" AND "record-setting"?

I have to admit I did enjoy the Stallone interview. I made a game of it. I'd take a drink everytime a multi syllable word was used. I don't recall even getting a light buzz.

Anything that is "inaugural" is, by definition, "record-setting"...

At least until the 2nd one. :D

At first I thought he was alright, until I needed a dictionary to watch the game.

Hmmmm...I'll have to think about that one.

Wouldn't it rather be "bar-setting"?

The same way the expansion Browns set records in their inaugural season. They kept all the marks of the previous regime.

I still say, put Sir Charles in there with Kimmel (sp?) and let 'er rip.

Ratings would skyrocket.

I assume the shameless pimping of B-list celebrities appearing in TV shows or movies owned by ABC/Disney will continue unabated as well. :shake:

Actually Barkley was the one guest that was worth listening to.

Barkley and Kimmel. I'd listen to that. Perhaps toss in Belushi for Bears games.

I just wanted to be right about one thing today. Just one...and you have to get all technical.

I agree; that would be great. Kimmel asking Theismann "How's your leg" was the good moment of MNF all season!

MNF sucks now. I gave up after they had the Raiders against the Chargers. That was suppose to be a marquee matchup? Meh.

I am glad he will be back. I like what he brings to the show. Better than Dennis Miller.
