Mike Greenberg Gets A Second Chance At A National Audience

Thursday, March 13, 2008

Stupid network television and their strikes. As the entertainment world predicted we're entering the realm of non-stop reality and game show programming, and this could be more evident with ABC's decision to bring back Mike Greenberg and his pointless game show "Duel".....

ABC is bringing back its winter game show "Duel" next month. The network has ordered 10 one-hour episodes to air Friday nights starting April 4. "Duel" is a trivia show where contestants play head-to-head for a chance of winning up to $500,000. ESPN's Mike Greenberg will return as host.

Though the show performed modestly during its original six-episode airing, the series ran during the December holidays when audience levels are lower. Also, ABC says there have been some format changes made this time to improve the show.

Friday nights are shaping up to be a broadcast game show battleground, with NBC's "Amnesia" and CBS's "Price Is Right Million Dollar Spectacular" vying for viewers in recent weeks.
Greaaaaaaat. Does that mean more exciting moments like this?



Just kill me now.

Bruce, don't act like you're the only one. I'm on that ship, too.

No truth to the rumors that ABC is considering SAS and Greenberg for a remake of "The Odd Couple."

Why is he not doing late night infomercials?

He'd be perfect.

Mike Greenberg is the number one douche on ESPN. And it is unbelievable how hard that is to accomplish

Sheesh, what a bunch of whiners. If you don't like it, don't watch it.

I'd be smiling too if those chicks were standing next to me. The chicks will be the highlight of the show.
