Early Reviews Of "Fox Sports Live" Flood The Twittersphere
Published August 18, 2013
FS1's Charissa Thompson opened last night's debut episode of "Fox Sports Live" by outlining the show's format, saying, "We start here with the big board -- self explanatory -- it helps us keep track of all the games and scores throughout the night.” She then introduced the show's panelists, including Gary Payton, Ephraim Salaam, Andy Roddick and Donovan McNabb. Thompson then said she was handing off to the "two beauties that keep us updated on all the news and highlights throughout the evening, Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole, you're welcome America" ("Fox Sports Live," FS1, 8/17).
The show's inaugural episode garnered myriad reactions on Twitter, including plenty of commentary about Onrait and O'Toole. Awful Announcing wrote, "See some potential in Fox Sports Live. It's a matter of them realizing Jay and Dan are the stars of the show." USA Today's Sean Highkin tweeted: "Onrait and O'Toole are great. I think the show would work better if they didn't just completely disappear during the panel segments." BuzzFeed.com's Erik Malinowski: "More Onrait/O’Toole, less everything else." ESPN's Jason Whitlock wrote, "Best Damn Hot Mess Period." BarStoolSports.com's David Portnoy: "Keep waiting for Roddick to hold up a sign that says he's being held hostage and needs help during one of those segments."
