    ESPN's daily CFB show debuts 7/23

    ESPN to ride college football wave with daily 'Live' show - USATODAY.com
    Looking to capitalize on college football's growing popularity, ESPN
    plans to launch this summer a weekday series, College Football Live. The 30-minute show will kick off July 23 and run through bowl season in January, says David Berson, ESPN senior vice president of programming.

    Modeled after the network's daily NFL Live, the new show will be hosted mostly by Rece Davis and feature breaking news, features and analysis. Davis will be joined by a rotating mix of ESPN's college football talent, including Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit from College GameDay, Lou Holtz, Mark May, Bob Griese, Doug Flutie, Todd Blackledge, Craig James and Ed Cunningham.

    The show will come on at 3:30 p.m. ET Monday-Friday on ESPN. When Monday Night Football starts, the Monday edition will shift to 2 p.m. on ESPN2.

    Ohh yeah, college football is king until January. Nothing else even comes close, not even the NFL.

    IIRC, sometime next month, The NFL Network is going to launch a daily CFB show as well.

    When Monday Night Football starts, the Monday edition will shift to 2 p.m. on ESPN2.
    I hate pro sports with all my heart and soul, so I don't know: does NFL coverage seriously start 5 hours before the game every single Monday? That's absurd. I wonder who they think will watch the CFB show at 11am/noon/1pm/2pm on a Monday. The only markets they even have a shot at are college students who don't have class, and unemployed people. Everyone else will be at school or work... Oh well, I don't care. I can't wait for football to start.

    I'll be DVR'ing it and will watch it at night, probably after NFL Total Access.

    Re: ESPN's daily CFB show debuts 7/23

    I suppose that's an option. Here's another question because I don't know: how common are DVRs/TiVos these days? I was under the impression that having one is the exception rather than the rule, but I could be wrong. If a respectable percentage of people have them, then yeah, I guess it doesn't matter that their show is on during the school/workday.

    Well I know that Mediacom limits each household to one DVR (supply and demand issue or so they say) and you're starting to see more and more product placement in network and cable based TV shows because viewers are fast forwarding through commericals.

    I love my DVR and would be lost without it. The ability to pause live TV is a must for anyone who's married with children.
