It's beyond me why anyone wastes time watching PTI
I'll defend PTI. I like it. The key is, those two are usually smart and funny.
The mistake ESPN makes is they want to replicate PTI with every show they do, which is fine, but they fail to identify the premise behind what makes PTI good: It's good because of Kornheiser and Wilbon, not because the format. If you do another show like PTI, but you replace Kornheiser and Wilbon with fricking Skip Bayless and Screaming A. Smith, it's going to suck.
They've yet to realize that. It's the singer, not the song, as young Mick would say.
