QUITE CANCELLED

2

From Broadcasting & Cable:

ESPN has cancelled Quite Frankly, a nightly talk show hosted by Steven A. Smith since its August 2005 inception.  The show’s finale was to air Friday night.

The show was once looked upon as a possibility to fill the late-night talk show void that ESPN has long considered.

And there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. But they were tears of joy. “Screamin A. Smith” has his uses, but I didn’t think this was one of them. He’s best in small doses talking NBA hoops. I actually enjoyed him very much during last year’s NBA Draft coverage.

I know I’m not alone in wishing that ESPN would return to a more serious form of sportscasting. “Sportscentury” & “Outside the Lines” are examples of ESPN at its best. Oh, and bring back Roy Firestone!

    I’m so glad this man had his show cancelled. I find him to be arrogant, cocky, and in most cases, racist. He’s obviously had something happen to him during his life as to the way he carries himself when covering the NBA and his show. He’s defended athletes for serious violations (league and public)-regardless of the offense – based on skin colour.

    I was appalled that he ever got a TV show and am now glad that the nightmare is over. He makes watching the NBA on ESPN painful everytime they show his face or play his voice. I just wish this man would go away…besides he sucks anyways.

    Maybe he can host the Texas Hold ‘Em tournaments that qualify as “sports” nowadays. FIRE MILLEN!
