ESPN's 32% ratings crash - layoffs happening

I watch it quite a bit because I love college basketball and watch the MLB during the summer. Also I think the 30-For-30 movies are all quite good. So I'm watching more than I ever have, but apparently nobody else is:

It's the TMZ of sports, and even when they have a chance at decent content (NFL countdown, college gameday) and not just the same old crap rehashed in different formats (PTI, Around the Horn, SportsCenter, etc) , they spread it out over 2 or 3 hours with 50% commercials.

I watch live sports, some football pregame if I pause it long enough to skip commercials, and should probably watch 30 for 30.

Yeah, that one - except that they have added Cris Carter and Keyshawn Johnson to the mix and dropped Irvin. It can get pretty intolerable. I mostly watch it for the news rather than the previews of the games.

Yeah, setting aside their obvious player and team biases, their video highlights leave a lot to be desired.

I mean, they have access to hundreds of hours of footage every week and I get the same ****ing 6 plays looped from each game? That's horseshit. They'd be doing themselves a big favor to expand their highlight coverage.

Confession time - CBS' pregame is my favorite, even with Sharpe on there. The mix of personalities is entertaining.

Can't stand the Fox pregame and won't watch it.

Ah, yeah yeah yeah. I've seen Key and Cris on there; Key and Irvin are like the same dude in my mind so I had forgotten about him.

I like that show. Definitely better than Shannon Sharpe, Bill Cowher and Michael Strahan, that's for sure. I do like James Brown, Boomer, Marino, and Bradshaw though so I'll tune into CBS and FOX from time to time.

That one isn't bad. That's with the black dude, Sharpe, Marino, Cowher, and Boomer, right?

And the other one is James Brown, Bradshaw, Strahan, Howie and some other dude I'm forgetting?

I always get them mixed up.

I also love the fact that they are the most expensive cable channel by far.

I prefer the ESPN pre-game the most but on commercials or during bullshit ass segments I don't want to watch I'll often flip between the other two.

Truthfully, I enjoy them all. I just use them to pass the time until the football starts anyway so I just need something that isn't completely annoying.

FOX's new sports network is going to compete with ESPN big time. They have the content and the their SportsCenter type show will challenge them.

I have a hard time watching a female lead speaking with a female field reporter and trying to take the conversation very seriously.

30 for 30 is a fantastic series, one of the best.

I think there are several factors hurting viewership;
  • So many people use their phones and iPads for sport updates
  • They have too many channels and have saturated all the sports
  • Most of their broadcasters suck

I like Kornheiser and Wilbon but not much more. Some of their MLB coverage is decent but no Tony Kubek, Joe Garagiola, or Curt Gowdy types

I think their NFL coverage has gotten worse the last 10 years or so.

I watch it much less than I did
