Description
Taut, exciting, realistic dramedy about the lives of sports journalists. It’s a show about a show about sports, that isn’t about sports at all. Amazon.com
Before there was Aaron Sorkin’s West Wing, there was Aaron Sorkin’s Sports Night, which followed the trials and tribulations of a smart, energetic television staff as they scrambled to put on a nightly cable sports show, not unlike ESPN’s SportsCenter. Sports Night was every bit as good as its political su… More >>

  1. I have to say this show really sucks. Its not even funny. All it is used for is so Comedy Central doesn’t have to pay for infomercials and every other networw realized it was crap. Peter Krasse is a good actor but I think that six feet under is better. Sportsnight is a peice of crap.

  2. While a critical fave during its run, take your cue instead from the millions of Americans who found something better to do with their time than waste it on the most overhyped show ever produced for network television. The characters and dialogue are terribly annoying and not realistic in the least. It’s not funny, it’s not dramatic, it’s not witty; but it is a 30 minute rant on things your likely not to care about (that’s all the dialogue is — rants from characters that offer nothing compelling.) Maybe I should have watched more episodes, but I could hardly stomach what I did view. It’s a shame so many of you call this “quality television.” Keep in mind before you buy this, there’s a reason it was cancelled so quickly.

  3. I can’t believe so many people like this series! All of the characters are the same, and a good majority of the conversations revolve around one character saying some exclamatory sentence, then another character stating something in disbelief, and the first character then repeats him/herself. This isn’t just one character, its all of them. And its not just one show, but once again, all of them! And why does everybody have to be sarcastic & have the traditional “Tough Guy” chip-on-their-shoulder? Everybody! Why?! I think its obvious as to why it was cancelled after, like, one season.
    I know that very few agree with me, but rent this first, there’s a good chance you’ll laugh a couple of times, but nothing to justify buying it. Its not for everybody (obviously).
    Its pretty obvious that Aaron Sorkin is unoriginal, as I’ve even seen an episode of “The West Wing” with one of the same character dialogs. Right down to the repeating of one character’s lines throughout the conversation. Why doesn’t this guy just write commercials. They make GOOD use of repetition.

  4. I have tried to like this show. I have really tried. I watch episodes of this show mostly to try to figure out how anyone could think that this is funny. In the case of this show, people seem to confuse fast moving, dry, humorless dialogue with witty banter.

  5. I caught a few episodes of this show when it aired and laughed a few times. The problem is that it could never decide whether it was a comedy or a drama. As a drama it was a complete failure. There is nothing interesting about a behind-the-scenes look at a sports network. Who cares if the lead story is “Martinez has a no-hitter going into the 7th” or “Kordell Stewart demands to be traded”? As for the comedy- it consisted solely of characters exchanging sarcastic remarks. That gets pretty tedious after a while, even if the characters are somewhat attractive.
