Norm Macdonald's new Comedy Central show, airing 10:30 p.m. April 12, looks promising. He's one of the funniest men on the planet and "Sports Show with Norm Macdonald" is basically "The Daily Show," only it skewers athletes and sports media (ESPN) instead of politicians and Fox News. The show will be up-to-date like "The Daily Show" being taped the day before for topicality, so not only will it be hilariously deadpan — remember Macdonald as the host on SNL's "Weekend Update" — but also good place to get sports news without the opinionated grand standing of “SportsCenter.” Check out the promo below. If you like it, there are a few more videos here and some funny behind the scenes stuff on the "Sports Show" blog.
