Versus has a new live show called The Daily Line. The show has four main hosts. First, Liam McHugh, who has been a contributor to ESPN the Magazine. Second, Reese Waters, a stand-up comedian. Third, Rob DeAngelis, who is the numbers guy as he puts it – he is a handicapper. Last but not least, Jenn Sterger, the Florida State Cowgirl herself.
The show is in the same vein as SportsNation or other similar programs, but at the time has it’s own unique charm.
The show just started up this past week and I started to DVR it a few days back. After watching a few of the episodes, I think this thing could definitely have staying power.
My favorite part of yesterdays show was the absolute grilling of a writer from ASeaOfBlue.com. It was refreshing to have the hosts not always agree with the guest. It got a little awkward at the beginning, but Liam and Reese were able to pull everything together.
Although I stated The Daily Line is similar to some other recent sports satire shows, it is by no means a carbon copy. I like the betting aspect that DeAngelis brings and of course I like the blog insights that Sterger injects into the show.
The show airs live each weekday at 6 PM ET with a number of replays there after. Give it a chance.
