Despite a new cast that featured 97.5 The Fanatic’s Tony Bruno and Mike Missanelli and Crossing Broad’s Kyle Scott, Comcast Sportsnet has decided to cancel “The Great Sports Debate”, according to Scott.
Scott broke says the despite high ratings, Comcast decided that they didn’t want to re-new the show.
Despite relatively strong local ratings on both Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet, the Comcast-NBC-mega-conglomerate overlords have decided not to pick up the show for the spring.
Scott also said that next week’s show will be the final new episode, followed up by two shows re-run shows that will finish out the Great Sports Debate.
Missanelli found out while on air hosting his show on 97.5 the Fanatic, and reacted by saying that he, “now has his Tuesday night’s free”, and, “thinks Comcast doesn’t like to run shows that aren’t their original programming”, which “The Great Sports Debate” is.
