I thought I saw where the viewership was up a bit from this time last year, but the show hasn't really been around long enough to tell where it's going to level off. It may be difficult for hardcore Keith fans to believe... but there are still people who are just now learning about its existence from discussions on Twitter. Folks are just blown away by how powerful his essays are -- and it's still early in the process!

I can't wait to see what the demo and overall viewership looks like 3 weeks from now!

I think the Thursday, Sept. 5, epi is the Wednesday night one. Instead of being on at 11pm, it will be on an hour later. Just a guess, though.

This question concerns Keith's post-season gig with TBS --

Does anyone know what "in-game highlights" are? Keith says that will be one of his duties -- "Pre- and post-game anchor and in-game highlights." I understand the first, but the last term is new to me. It sounds like highlights during the game, but that can't be right-- Image

Now I'm sure that's what it means -- esp. after what we've seen this week so far! :lol:

He said what in-game highlights are one night, but I can't say that I remember *precisely* what they are. :lol:

I think it had something to do with the fact that contractually they can't show filmed highlights of games in progress due to TV rights and all, but once the game is finished they can? :-k

My husband says it is exactly what I thought it wasn't -- brief highlights of the game so far, during breaks (sidebars re calls, etc.). That explains how they could do it during the game, and they would have to keep it very short.

As to the film/video clip rights, perhaps the network with the contract to show the game also is given limited rights to show brief clips?

Maybe someone could tweet that question to Keith. It's the sort of fact-based query he likes.

I think I've found the source of Keith's theme. Some had suggested a Gene Krupa solo on one of the versions of "Sing, Sing, Sing," but the recording sounds too modern, plus the style is different from Krupa's. I thought it sounded like an update of the song by a newer band.

I believe I've found it. (What a coup for this group if it is!) You guys decide if this is it, or if I need to keep looking.

Move the slider to 3:10 --

In the Astronomical Conjunction dept --

Keith has returned to ESPN in the same year that ESPN is celebrating its first appearance on the air (34 years ago today, in fact) -- which also happens to be same year Keith got his first job in prof. journalism (UPI, 1979).

Oh, and Nate Silver, who just joined ESPN, is 34 years old.

To quote William Carlos Williams: These things do not happen without reason. :wink:

Just had to document this:

While the country was celebrating the beginning of football season, Fox News quietly ended its defacto policy of not mentioning Keith by name.

Not sure why Faux News had Keith pictured there. Any clue as to why they mentioned him?
