Rupert Murdoch Admits Launching FS1 Was "Big Bet," Expects Profits After Couple Years

NOT A WILD GUESS: Sports media reporter Ed Sherman wrote it is "no surprise" that FS1 has cancelled "Crowd Goes Wild." Using Regis Philbin as the central figure on the show "was a weird move, and the whole thing seemed doomed from the beginning." It was "too much of a hodge-poge of segments that didn't work and too many people on the set." However, there were some "decent pieces" on the show, as viewers can "expect to see more" of co-host Georgie Thompson on other FS1 programming. Sherman also wrote he liked co-hosts Jason Gay and Trevor Pryce (SHERMANREPORT.com, 4/29). SI.com's Richard Deitsch reported Thompson is "headed back to England," where she will cover the UEFA Champions League final next month for FS1. There also is a possibility she "will [be] part of Fox Sports 1's coverage of the Women's World Cup in 2015" (SI.com, 4/28).
