PASSSSS. PTI is genius and still one of the only opinion shows I actively seek out because of Tony and Wilbon’s relationship. It’s that simple. I’m not watching it for Tony Kornheiser’s take on sports or Michael Wilbon’s name drop, I’m watching it because they interact like old friends. It feels comfortable and familiar. Like you’re sitting next to them at a bar and talking about whatever is topical in the sports world. It’s what we’re trying to recreate on the Rundown, that feeling of letting people into our world, our friendly banter, ball busting etc. So tossing Cowherd and Whitlock on a show together makes no sense. It will be hot takes for hot takes sake. Two huge egos looking to get in the last word. How long have these two even worked together? A few years at ESPN and the last year at FOX? This feels forced, this feels like Fox doesn’t fully understand why PTI is so good and just trying to rip it off to capture a few stray eyeballs. Pass in a big way.
In 2 years FS1 will be bigger than ESPN, book it
I still have zero idea what channel FS1 is on.
Jason Whitlock is an annoying, race-baiting hack. So I’m not really sure why you’d give him a show considering blacklivesmatters kids are pussies and don’t play sports
Cowherd is the definition of insufferable.
The idea of Big Brain Dave having an “old time friend” relationship with you and Kevin is unfathomable
Honestly Fuck ESPN, I hope the show does well
@trollboothwilly please explain how, I hate ESPN but that comment is blasphemous
@3chi Whitlock has some hot takes but I wouldn’t necessarily call him a race baiter. Read his article on the Duke rape case when the story first broke. He was one of the few people in the media who didn’t rush to judgement and try to crucify those kids until all the facts were laid out.
For some reason I thought you guys were talking about pardon my take when I read the pti, Ya I’m pretty stupid so stupid people mix that up. So espn kinda did have a reason to sue you guys

So you agree KFC should go? Cause he certainly doesn’t contribute to this vision
“it will be hot takes for hot takes sake” – pardon my take co-host
I mean, the Rundown is the exact same thing as PTI
Take my Pardon
Found out about the FS1 version of PTI from BSS, and FYI, it looks like the GOAT.
Still love how Kornheiser uses “your boy” to Wilbon whenever somebody he likes or has name dropped before does something terrible which happens like 5 times per show.
I actually think FS1 will be solid within the next 5 years. ESPN has been on a decline for what feels like eternity now
I actually think FS will be solid within the next couple years. ESPN has been on a decline for what feels like eternity now
It should be a skip cowherd debate show with whitlock eating the loser
Let us into “your world” …… you’re like a teenage girl who gets off on having a certain amount of Twitter followers. Fuck you!
BigCat you are trying to make sense of decisions made by network tv executives who are notoriously tone deaf and make horrible decisions to justify their salaries. Keep plugging away you guys will find a home for your content and the proof will be in the pudding.
newsflash BC PTI sucks
What time and channel is this going to be on? Need to know so I don’t accidentally get anywhere near it.
Whitlock used to work for PTI not just as a host so I guess he’ll bring some inside info on how to pull off a good show like that, not that it should be too hard.
