I thought he already was a sitcom, just not that much com.

I'm developing a rash. I imagine I'll enjoy it more.

One of the few times 'Nuke it from orbit - its the only way to be sure' really does seem appropriate.

UGH I HATE this he is without a question one of the worst ESPN radio guys working. Maybe this will flame out faster than the caveman and he'll be a slightly more humble Cowherd when it's over.

TBL has an interesting take on this deal in connection with some recent comments CC has made. Ugh if true.

But Cowherd's always saying dumb-ass shit. He's like Thomas Friedman where he sprouts a kernel of a seemingly universal truth that nobody has ever thought of before and just runs with it. As he hashes it out, it starts to make less and less sense, but he keeps running with it, never backing off even when the idea goes completely off the rails. The John Wall thing is just the latest run of his dumb-assery.

That is some sloppy writing there. I thought it was saying he was married to Michelle Beadle, which briefly destroyed me for reasons I am not entirely certain of or comfortable with.

Desperate times call for giant douchenozzles.

CBS is also the network that tried to turn a mildly humorous Twitter feed into a sitcom. Someone needs to clean house over there.

A sitcom about Kevin Cowherd? Just what I need, another excuse not to watch CBS (except when football is on).

...and people criticize Fox News for its programming. Glen Beck vs Kevin Cowherd sounds like a slight edge to Beck.

I do believe this is one of the signs of the apocalypse.

The only interesting thing is going to be to see how quickly this goes off the air.

Makes sense. Another forgetable show on CBS based on a forgetable person. Gotta love network TV!

If Michelle Beadle gets to play herself, count me in!

If the SHAM-WOW guy gets to play Cowherd, count me in!
