If you aren’t aware, ESPN’s 1st Take under their new format trots out rappers and entertainers to debate with Skip Bayless.
Good PR for the entertainers, but it isn’t very good television and their dropping ratings reflect that. Jay Pharoah was on the show and had some choice words for Paul Pierce.
When Pierce heard what he said he replied…….
It isn’t what Jay Pharoah said that is the issue, because I call PP “Wheelchair Pierce” for a reason, but people watch SNL to be entertained and laugh (Pharoah is very good), they were watching 1st Take for unbiased sports debates.
That is why they aren’t watching anymore.
