Was flipping channels yesterday while home resting from an injury, and saw the Max and Bastard show -- *woof*.

Not only that, there was a *bad* sync problem in the last segment, which either master control or subcontrol (directing) had to dissolve back to normal. I'm not watching again until the real two are back. I don't know what put me out first -- the Flexoril I was prescribed, or those two.

Unfortunately, we have a week and a half until TK and Wil-Bone come back.

It's still on the ESPN schedule. And the PTI links are still up.

I'd be more upset that Mohr Sports was on at 5 pm. You might as well bring back Cris Connelly.

I just thought it was odd usually they'll say the day before that the wouldn't be on the next day.


They could have played something else besides the 2001 Washington Redskins yearbook.:)

Was Chris Connelly's show cancelled? I remember watching when he had Kurt Angle on.

The one explanation (other than the show being pulled) I can come up with is that LeBatard probably was going to miss the show today for Sports Reporters Deux (as he did the last two weeks). Maybe (and this is silly) they couldn't find a "suitable" fill-in and they just bumped the show.

It would be very stupid to axe the show the same week it gets an A rating in Entertainment Weekly.

Last night, on the ESPN Hot 100, Tony and Wilbon were debating the top sports story of the year. I'm guessing that was taped before their vacation.

If I had known there were going to be on, I would have taped it. (Of course, Im sure ESPN will run it into teh ground.)

FYI, PTI is scheduled for its regular time slot today and later on tonight on the Deuce.

Tony and Wilbon are going to be back on Monday.

I not watching PTI the rest of the week, because I can't stand LeBatard and the boxing guy.

Edit: Forgot to mention, I saw OdessaSteps' "PTI Game" on the PTI segment of the Hot 100 last night.

That's good to know, since we still have 2 full weeks on no Mr. Tony on the radio. I like Joe D., so I don't mind. And it was just weird to have Chuck WIlson and Chris Moore guesting. I mean, they have their own show.

I have not listened to the radio show since Mr.Tony has been off.None of them can compare to Mr.Tony.


I remember the name Denis but I can't remember who he was.Was he the one who Mr.Tony used to talk about "24" with?

Denis (Horgan Jr.) used to be tony's producer but was fired by ESPN.

Go back and read earlier in this thread for more info.

I believe so... it hasn't been on for over a month. Can't say I miss it, though... he wasn't even as good as "Up Close", and the only memorable moment from that show was when Lewis and Rahman trashed the set. PTI was easily the winner between those two.

The PTI mailing list actually sent something out yesterday trumpeting the return of Tony and Mike on Monday. Thank god.

BTW, Mohr Sports is apparently bombing too. What a shame.

Odessa, I meant to write this earlier but I wanted to thank you for turning me on to PTI a while back. It is easily the best Sports TV show ever done (even for a guy who was a total mark for HBO's 1st and 10 back in the day). So much so that I decided to use a riff on PTI each week on the Torch.

Thanks!

You like that show? If you don't mind me asking, why? It seems like the funny things about sports are so obvious that they don't need a comedian to make the obvious punchline. I watched a few episodes and I was pretty unimpressed with him. I do like Jay Mohr, though, but more as an actor than host.

Sarcasm. I cannot stand Jay Mohr, whose only worthwhile contribution to entertainment is his impression of Christopher Walken.
