The Bill Simmons Show

Last we heard from Bill Simmons he was being fired by ESPN. The writer/commentator has since been hired by HBO and is putting a show together. According to this piece in The Hollywood Reporter, he has hired a few Daily Show writers and producers to develop the show for him. That's a good step.

I'm still not a Simmons fan, at least not on TV. I enjoy his writing, but he really comes off as a smarmy-know-it-all on television. Hoping the Daily Show folks and HBO can knock that out of him.
