MORE FIRST IMPRESSIONS: SI.com's Richard Deitsch wrote of some "early impressions" from "Fox Sports Live" and noted there is a "lot of content about Fox Sports 1 programming" on the show. That likely will "make the marketing and social media departments at Fox Sports happy but it gets very tiring for viewers the seventh time you refer to a joke Regis Philbin made earlier that day." The show's "highlight packaging needs upgrading," and the viewers can "see the difference" when comparing "Fox Sports Live" to ESPN's "SportsCenter." Co-hosts Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole will be an "acquired taste given their sardonic nature and show-within-a-show ethos," but Deitsch wrote he likes them "because they are smart." The pair hosted Sunday without the show's panel of experts and it was "a much smoother broadcast than the Saturday or Monday program." Meanwhile, "Fox Sports Live" has credited "other media outlets by specific name" on its ticker, an "excellent and correct" move (SI.com, 8/20).
