Not really trying to be snarky here and I'm preaching to the choir so who cares, but I give it one season.

I just don't think he's ever had the television chops no matter how hard he's tried. He was at his best with Jalen doing ESPN pre/post-game and that wasn't even that good.

Honestly, he needs a lead contributor to have a British accent.

Still depends a lot on what format it is and what expectations they have for it. Real Time has been on the air for ages and I don't think it gets very good ratings so they may be willing to let things linger even if they aren't blown away.

"Bill Simmons represents a unique and distinct voice with a proven track record of challenging the norm and igniting debate and discussion on a wide range of topics," said HBO programming president Michael Lombardo.

It's not about ratings, it's about whether the show is driving subscription revenues. I'm sure there's a substantial portion of real time's audience who subscribe to HBO largely for that. In addition, it helped build HBO's reputation for political content, which helped pave the way for movies like recount/game change and shows like vice.

I'm guessing HBO is planning some larger expansion of its sports offerings. They're probably valuing Bill more for his ability as an executive producer/recruiter of talent, but they know they can't get that without giving him a TV platform to pontificate idiotically on sports, movies from 30 years ago, and uninteresting details of his personal life.

The one thing that could be good is if he gets folks he knows to help produce HBO's sports docs. They are generally very informative, but bland. Done right, those could blow the 30 for 30s out of the water.

Its going to be more than just sports, he says.

He said that its good because its an HBO 30 minute show, so he can interview his guests for 10-11 minutes. (as opposed to 60 now on his podcast, so I dont know what his point is.) He also said because its on HBO, he has the leeway to go 10 minutes over the 30. OK sure. Maybe 2 or 3 minutes, max. Idiot.
