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:

Pretty much. I understand every single station is about drama and reality bullshit nowadays; but come the **** on ESPN.

There are some of us out there that actually enjoy sports and discussions about sports. Not about some soap opera bullshit he said/she said saga that takes up a 30 minute segment.

Those are two of the most mundane sports to watch. Hence another reason I rarely watch ESPN. ESPN blows 90% of the time.

Aside from live sports I rarely watch ESPN. During the summer the MLB Network pretty much removes any need to tune into ESPN at all. You don't have to have break-ins showing WNBA news, or hear see some ridiculous scrawl "news" from Chris Broussard.
The Live Look In thing on MLB Network is awesome.
ESPN just isn't good. No one's happy when ESPN does an NBA game. Magic and Jalen and Wilbon and whoever the 4th guy is are terrible and boring.
Half the shows are contrived BS. Their pesonalities like Skip, Stephen A and Cowherd are total d-bags. Stu Scott's act is so old and tired I don't even think he can stand it.
And Chris Berman just seems like a cartoon. A lame and boring and arrogant cartoon.
The whole thing sucks.
And their twitter accounts suck too. Really bad.

Cowherd is awful. I always wondered who the people were that like him.

Not true. FOXs new channel has college football and basketball, NASCAR, Champions League soccer and MMA this year. They get MLB next season.

Skip Bayless is far and away the most awful "personality" they have on air.

Chris Berman is a close second.

The only guys I can really stand are Reece Davis, Hubert Davis, Jay Bilas, and Kirk Herbstreit.

And Bilas is the only guy out of all of those I actually "like" to listen to.

PTI is good. Wilbon and Kornheiser have great chemistry.
College Gameday used to be good but now all they talk about is the Top 5 or Notre Dame, USC, Alabama, LSU, and Florida. Actual analysis and insight is replaced by personal interest stories about the players for the above teams.
ESPN is not really good at actually reporting. They get outscooped regularly by Yahoo Sports.
MLB network is great so there is no reason to actually watch ESPN in the summer.
ESPN pretends that the NHL doesn't exist for the most part and Barry Melrose sucks.
They got outbid by NBC Sports for the Premier League.
They are the biggest front runners of all the sports networks.

Well if you're in Iowa, I can see why you wouldn't care about those 2 sports. You don't have them.

ESPN does get scooped all the time, and the worst part is the way they handle it. They'll put, "according to reports," for an hour or two. Then when they can get Chris Broussard or Mort or someone to talk to the team they'll start using, "ESPN's Chris Mortensen confirms that ____."
