According to the internet rumor mill Comedy Central is in development for a sports themed show that would star none other than Norm MacDonald.
The show already has Mike Gibbons, the co-creator and executive producer of Tosh.0, signed on to be the producer as well as Daniel Kellison, a former writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live and Late Show With David Letterman.
The show makes sense considering some of Norm’s funniest moments came from anchoring the news on Saturday Night Live’s long-running “Weekend Update” (and Turd Ferguson).
Don’t get too excited about a half hour of sports analysis with MacDonald just yet though because the network is also in negotiations with The Onion News Network for a similar sports themed show, and let’s be honest, if there is an example of a guy who get the short end of the stick in the entertainment industry, its Norm MacDonald.
Well him and Colin Quinn.
