Australian Open TV Schedule

The 2010 Australian Open Tennis TV schedule is ready. While most of us on this side of the globe are dreaming our winter blues away, the world's greatest tennis stars are in full swing down under at the Australian Open. Let's face it, late night talk show options are dwindling. Why not bounce on over to watch the Australian Open? The matches will be broadcast live for the rest of the month on ESPN/ESPN2.

Why did 60 Minutes say that Andre Agassi was "only" talking to them?

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 10th 2009 8:03AM
Open, andre agassiWhen CBS promoted the 60 Minutes interview with Andre Agassi that aired this past Sunday, they said that he was only talking to one person, Katie Couric, as if this was the only place you'd be able to hear Agassi talk about his new book (Open) and the revelations that have surfaced (especially his crystal meth use in the late 90s).

So what exactly was so "only talking to one person" about this interview? KVBC did an interview with him about the book, he's on Live with Regis & Kelly tomorrow morning, on The Late Show tomorrow night, and he's on Jimmy Kimmel Live on November 23. He also did an interview with People.

What do you think of ESPN's U.S. Open coverage?

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 3rd 2009 6:03PM
ESPN2I was really disappointed when it was announced last year that USA Network would no longer be the network for The U.S. Open. ESPN (actually, ESPN2, to be specific) has the rights to the U.S. Open and the other three Grand Slam tournaments. It scared me a little though. Would their coverage be as well done and entertaining as USA's?

I really shouldn't have worried.

What You Missed Last Night: Jimmy Fallon wants to be a U.S. Open ballboy

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 1st 2009 12:09PM
It seems that the best segments on all of the NBC late night shows are the out of the studio, remote segments. Last night, Jimmy Fallon and his Late Night announcer Steve Higgins went to the U.S. Open to try out to be ball boys (sorry, ballpersons).

The "B.J. King" joke is pretty funny.

Why is ESPN's US Open coverage starting later than USA's?

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 24th 2009 7:06PM
US OpenAs I wrote last year, I'm really disappointed to see that USA Network won't be covering the US Open anymore (I guess tennis players are some of the characters that aren't welcome there).

Last year was their last year and ESPN takes over next Monday (they now have the rights to all four of the Grand Slam tournaments). While ESPN does a fine job with most of the sports they cover, the USA coverage was one of my favorite two weeks of the year, something I really looked forward to every August. I liked the announcers, I liked the direction and the production, and I liked their all-day and all-night schedule.

I have no reason to think that ESPN will ruin the Open, but there is one thing that worries me a little bit.

USA Network says goodbye to the U.S. Open - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 4th 2008 3:01PM
USA Network logoAre you like me and you really enjoy the two weeks of U.S. Open coverage that USA Network has every year at this time? Well, don't get too used to it, because after tonight's match (Roddick vs. Djokovic!), the USA Network will no longer carry the annual tournament.

This probably isn't a shock to regular tennis fans, but USA's contract for the U.S. Open is up this year, after 25 years of carrying the two week tournament. Of course, TV fans don't have to worry, because ESPN and The Tennis Channel that will start airing the tournament next summer. I just hope that most of the coverage is on ESPN and ESPN2 because, well, I don't have The Tennis Channel.

Hey ESPN, I really hate your Wimbledon scoreboard

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 27th 2008 3:40PM

Andy RoddickAs longtime readers of TV Squad probably know, I'm a tennis fanatic. I hate summer with a passion, but I'm happy for the season during four weeks: the two weeks of Wimbledon (late June/early July) and the two weeks of the U.S. Open (late August/early September). If you need me those two weeks, I'll be in front of my TV and a fan, drinking cold liquids.

Of course, it's not all popcorn and roses. There's something that really irritates me about ESPN's coverage of Wimbledon that's going on right now, and I see it every single time I look at the screen (which I find you have to do if you want to watch the matches). It's that damn scoreboard at the top of the screen.

The New York Reality TV School (Parts 3 and 4)

by Jay Black, posted Jun 27th 2008 1:41PM
Reality show casting director talks to an aspiring reality star while some woman from Sweden records it for some reason.Part Three: Never Retreat! Never Surrender!

The lessons started in earnest. First was a philosophy that Robert follows in his own life, but that he felt worked perfectly for those seeking to be on reality TV:

Never Deny, Always Reply, Never Ask Why.

He repeated it several times. I won't do that here. Just, uh, read that sentence a few times and you'll get the point.

Essentially, the point of his philosophy was that you need to be open to all things -- you should never say "no" (never deny); you should reply to every request made to you, presumably in the affirmative (always reply), and you should never question the logic of what is being asked of you (never ask why).
