Best show on TV

Is there a better sports-related show on TV than "Pardon the Interruption"?

For as much heat as ESPN takes for some of its ethics and hyping of stories, the powers-that-be got it right with PtI.

Tony Kornheiser may rub some people the wrong way, but he's one of the best sports personalities out there. Michael Wilbon is a must-read columnist at the Washigton Post.

They are perfect in this element, firing responses back at the other.

Watch any other similar show on ESPN, and it's not quite the same. "Around the Horn" is tiresome because you've got up to four reporters barking at each other, and none is more annoying than Woody Paige.

"The Sports Reporters" on Sunday mornings used to be a terrific show under former host Dick Schaap. But with his death a few years ago, the show has practically ground to a halt. It's still an entertaining show, but it's nowhere near PtI.
