Comedy Central seems to be working off the theory of twos. Two mock political shows and now two mock sports news shows. In addition to The Onion Sports Dome, the network has now greenlit the Norm Macdonald sports show it put into development a few months back. It will be called… you guessed it, Sports Show with Norm MacDonald
The word on the street is the show will be scripted, taped in front of a live studio audience, and will cover all sports – from the popular to the obscure. From that description, it sounds like it might be a similar environment to Norm’s ol’ Weekend Update days but with ya know, sports.
