Recap of the first week
The schedule was chaotic since Wednesday, thanks to Tennis but the shows were great with great guests.
The format seems to fit Keith though it’s still quite packed.
So far I haven’t seen much of the local contributors the show has. I hope they’ll be on soon. For now the show had a lot of ESPN people in that role but I assume that’s partly to get their fans to watch Keith’s show.
Keith created a lot of buzz with his intro segments, which have been great so far. Since he was hired to create buzz and get people to watch ESPN2, I’d say that’s a success.
From what I can see on Twitter, people seem to overwhelmingly love the show and even call it appointment viewing just like “The Big Show” in his old SportsCenter days. (The only problem this time was to know at what time that appointment was).
I like the studio in general but Times Square ads are a bit distracting sometimes. The staff and crew seem to know what they’re doing and are doing a great job.
The show now has a full audio podcast and some videos on YT as well as a good show account on Twitter. Google+ seems more like a way to link videos and there’s no FB page. This could be because Keith doesn’t like FB and there are many “fan” sites out there.
What I like most about the show is that Keith seems to have a lot of fun and his crew can be heard laughing sometimes, too.
Onto many more shows!
