So details about the first episode of Joe Buck Live airs this Monday, and I know the excitement is palpable. The topics appear to be almost exactly the same as the infamous Buzz Bissinger HBO dust-up, but with more witty commentary (courtesy of Buck, obviously). Oh and get this, you might even be able to attend! Via Deadspin....
The first edition of Joe Buck Live focuses on "Sports and Celebrity." Combine the 24-hour news cycle with internet reporting, bloggers, gossip columns, sports talk radio, commercial endorsements and the glare of continuous television coverage, and today's superstar athlete is constantly in play.You can't just show up at the Joe Buck Show! No way, no how! You have to write an essay on why you are a Sports fan, email it in triplicate and then wait by the mother f**king phone, if you want to get into this rodeo!!!
Utilizing a live studio audience in New York City, the hour-long show will include live interviews, panel discussions, pre-recorded features and a few surprises. We are keeping the great guests a secret and waiting for the big reveal on June 15th when Joe Buck Live will be filmed in front of our exclusive audience. You won't want to miss what promises to be an engaging, informative and entertaining evening of TV.
