ESPN’s most popular show, by far, is “Pardon the Interruption” (PTI), the chat fest staring Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon. It airs at 5:30 Eastern weeknights. For most of us, it means it’s on while we’re driving home from work. No problem. Through the magic of TiVo, I can watch the show at my convenience when I get home.
Except when I can’t. Which is quite often. Like tonight, for example. The programming geniuses at ESPN bumped PTI to show the remainder of a game in some meaningless baseball exhibition between Cuba and the Dominican Republic, with the score standing at 9-1 in the 9th inning. Aaaargh.
This happens routinely, with PTI getting bumped by a college basketball game involving schools who haven’t seen a player drafted by the NBA since the 1950s. Or amateur golf.
Surely, I am not alone in preferring to see the show that’s supposed to be on than a sport that’s so lame it is on live at 5:30 on a weeknight?
