‘Outside The Lines’ & ‘First Take’ Viewership for the Week of July 7-13, 2014

Bob-Ley-OTL

No reason for this post other than recent ruminating on Twitter by Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch and Paulsen of Sports Media Watch had me curious.

Brief context of the ruminating: Deitsch isn’t thrilled OTL’s Sunday telecast will be moving to ESPN2 when NFL comes back. The gist of  Paulsen’s stance is that First Take symbolizes everything that’s wrong with sports media.

  1. Stephen A and Skip Bayless and Champion are the best sports show broadcasted in many years. It is a shame that one or two critics dodo’s in a power position can ruin something that is good
