Wait, did he seriously have a segment where he had a bunch of dumbfuck ideas to fix hockey that Wayne Gretzky shot down? I hope he proposed having a midget goalie holding up a board the size of the net.

There’s been a number of recent think pieces, (Decider.com, The Big Lead) on Any Given Wednesday, the Bill Simmons-led HBO program that has experienced subpar ratings up to this point. The invaluable website Sports TV Ratings has chronicled AGW’s ratings since its June 22 premiere and last Wednesday the show hit a season low with 82,000 viewers competing against heavy sports competition (the World Series and the second day of the NBA season). Michael Mulvihill, executive vice president of research, league operations and strategy for FOX Sports, said he believed AGW was HBO’s second least-watched original primetime program this year.

Can the viewership number be fixed? Well, you have to keep in mind what the overall viewership is as this Sports TV Ratings piece suggests. If the cross-platform numbers (e.g. DVR playback, encore telecasts, on-demand views and HBO Now streams) significantly boost the show’s first-run data, the narrative is much better. (HBO has not released the data.) But there’s no spinning the first-run data. Any significant increase in viewership will require patience—and patience is not always in short supply when it comes to television executives.

Given the viewership, I’ve seen some suggestions that HBO should get out of the Bill Simmons business. That would be foolish and likely has little basis in reality. Given his ability to draw a big audience (for instance, his podcast averages around 400,000-500,000 listens based on industry sources) and his connections in the sports documentary film world, cutting bait at this juncture would be short sighted. It would also cost HBO a lot of cash for little return.

How would I get people to re-engage with AGW? Personally, I’d start anew by creating a new format (and on a different day if possible because Wednesday is brutal for a weekly sports show) that adds a fulltime co-host because I think Simmons is much better on television playing off a co-host than going at it alone. If Simmons could find another Jalen Rose—an ex-athlete who lets the audience into his world—that would be ideal. I also thought Ty Duffy of The Big Lead hit on something important with AGW: Such a weekly show must regularly produce viral, shareable content that gets social media users excited as it did last June with Ben Affleck’s curse-filled appearance. Weekly shows don’t get the benefit of being on the next day to update an accelerated sports news cycle.

Some industry people have accused me of being in the Simmons camp (Hi, FS1 and ESPN-ers!) and I’m more than cool saying I respect how Simmons used his media fame and brand to create real and sustaining jobs for writers, editors and podcasters at The Ringer (and previously at Grantland). Some of these include former SI colleagues. That’s a far more important legacy than any book, television show, or podcast, and worthy of supporting over sports shows that revolve around bashing LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Colin Kaepernick.

If Simmons does well, many others do well, which is a good thing for the sports media. But it’s clear AGW needs a different direction heading forward if it wants to game-change the first-run viewership. I hope it succeeds.


Richard Deitsch's thoughts on the show. I think finding a co-host would be good for the quality of the show.
