Review

  • ESPN's SportsCenter has now been on the air for 20 years and in those 20 years, it has become the standard by which all other sports news programs are measured. From the creative, entertaining way that highlights from the day's sports events are portrayed to the informative features on all of the major American sports (baseball, football, hockey, basketball, etc.), SportsCenter keeps its viewers up to date with everything that is happening in the world of sports. All the personalities appear to be knowledgable on all types of sports which is important to this type of program and SportsCenter has launched the careers of several of its anchors, most notably Craig Kilborn and Keith Olbermann. (Dan Patrick has been long rumored to also be leaving to pursue other options.) Regardless, though, of who are sitting in the anchors' chairs, SportsCenter provides an informative and entertaining hour of sports news that has made SportsCenter the longest running series in television history, with well over 20,000 episodes at the time I wrote this review.
