Best Damn Cancellation Period

    Best Damn Sports Show Period shuffled off this mortal coil yesterday when it taped its last first-run show 23 days shy of its eighth birthday, about six years after it peaked and 4½ years after it leapt the shark. It gave us the TV careers of Michael Irvin, John Kruk, John Salley, Screamin' A. Smith and swimsuit model Leeann Tweeden. It also gave Tom Arnold something to do between failed auditions.

    BDSSP is survived by Kruk's TV career, a few Best Damn Countdowns Period and nothing of any substance.

    An old friend of mine did the audio on that show. So, sorry to hear that about his job, but I can't say I'd seen the show in years.

    Vin Scully would never call it by its full name when promoing it.

    Nor would a born-again Michael Irvin.

    I know this will surprise you -- but I had no idea this show was even still on. Seriously.

    Easily one of the worst shows of any genre ever produced and put on the air.

    Doesn't Rib Dibble's career survive somewhere?

    Yeah, but he was getting there even before Best Damn. So no writethru.

    It was all about men and man's world in which we live.
    Tits, asses, more tits, more asses - with frequent references to each.
    It personified everything Hollywood/entertainment industry/advertising industry: Spin it with sex, man!

    I liked it when it was pre-empted for the Hooter's swimsuit contest.

    George Grande, on Fox Sports Ohio Reds broadcasts, never said the full name either.
