Did you catch the premiere of Norm MacDonald’s Sports Show last night on Comedy Central? If not (or even if yes), Colin Perkins has you covered. But maybe don’t miss it next week?
But for fans of MacDonald, his new show — which premiered last night on Comedy Central — should provide a welcomed dose of comfort. Sports Show (a title of which is hilariously simplistic in and of itself) is mostly made of its host firing off one-liners in front of a series of rotating images on a TV backdrop. It’s a format that feels very familiar, combining the best of Weekend Update with the feel of his stand-up. And in focusing on the world of sports, MacDonald has chosen a subject that offers up a never-ending supply of targets.
