VIDEO: The First 90 Seconds of Comedy Central's 'Sports Show with Norm MacDonald'

Tonight Comedy Central premieres a new series poking fun at the sports world. “Sports Show with Norm MacDonald” is set to debut on the channel at 10:30 PM.

On the other hand, ESPN seems to get worse and worse as they gain more power. Maybe that book will change something?

VERSUS dropped the puck on its sixth year of NHL coverage with the most-watched opening night game on U.S. cable in eight years and the most-watched NHL regular season cable telecast in six years. In Canada, CBC’s HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA attracted record audiences for its Saturday night debut this weekend.

Bam. Bam. Bam.

Hey, NHL COO John Collins. How do you feel about this development?

“Fans worldwide have proven again and again that they have a voracious appetite for NHL content,” he said. “The record numbers for the start of the
