    College Gameday show expanding to 3 hours

    College GameDay Expands to Three Hours | ESPN MediaZone

    ESPN’s two-time Emmy Award winning College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will expand to a three-hour format and now be aired from 9 a.m. to noon ET, providing an extra hour of college football analysis, news and features every Saturday during the season beginning Sept. 4.

    ESPNU will televise the new first hour of the popular show -- originating from the site of the day’s best game or the game with the most compelling storyline -- from 9 a.m.-10 a.m. From 10 a.m. to noon, GameDay will continue to air on ESPN. The first site of the season is yet to be announced. Each location throughout the year will generally be determined on the preceding Monday.

    The three-hour College GameDay will feature show host Chris Fowler with analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard. Also, Erin Andrews will join the College GameDay lineup, anchoring several segments during the first hour on ESPNU, and contributing reports, interviews and features during the ESPN portion of the show.

    As part of her role, Andrews will also work as the sideline reporter on the game from which College GameDay originates from, if the game is on an ESPN network (ESPN, ABC, ESPN2, ESPNU, etc.). In addition to her responsibilities across ESPN platforms, Andrews will provide select reports on ABC’s Good Morning America throughout the year.

    “Millions of fans can start their college football Saturdays an hour earlier and the ever-expanding ESPNU offers the perfect home for more award-winning College GameDay,” said Norby Williamson, ESPN executive vice president, production. “As part of the new lineup, we’re thrilled to announce an enhanced role for Erin Andrews that includes GameDay, while some of our most prominent college football personalities will have new and expanded responsibilities.”

    What they don't say is the show will really only be 5 mins longer. The rest of the new time will probably just be commercials

    Oh come on guys, it's not that bad of show. For those of us who love college football, it's a good way to start the day.

    It seems like that whole show is commercials.

    Wasn't the point of cable to be able to view television without commercials?

    I don't know, this seems like a good thing to DVR. Wake up and start watching at 9. By the time you get done watching the program on ESPNU, you have a good 1/2 hour buffer built up on ESPN Gameday. That will get you through at least the 9 o'clock hour of the program without having to watch a single commercial.

    Re: College Gameday show expanding to 3 hours

    Here is summary of the 3 hrs of programming:

    9 - 9:30 = SEC LoveFest. Discussion about your favorite SEC Team.
    9:30 - 10 = Texas LoveFest. Interview with Mac Brown or new TU QB.
    10 - 11 = MORE SEC. Details of your Favorite Florida, Alabama or LSU player.
    11 - 11:30 = Big 10 spot, try to convince America the Big 10 is not Pathetic.
    11:30 - 11:45 = More Texas. What is not to Love about Texas?

    11:45 - 12 = Cover the remaining 60+ D1 games being played.

    Not for Direct TV there isn't. It would be nice not to have to pay that $5 a month, but I can't complain too much...it just makes watching TV so much better.

    What does it matter? It will never be in Ames regardless of how good the game will be or how compelling the storyline.
