Longtime CBS Sunday night staple "60 Minutes" has become synonymous with investigative journalism since its 1968 debut and has spawned genre-specific variations on a number of cable networks, most of which feature repackaged versions of previously aired "60 Minutes" reports. This monthly, sports-focused version on CBS corporate sibling Showtime bucks the repackaging trend by featuring original reporting from veteran journalists, including lead correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi, longtime sports journalist Armen Keteyian and "60 Minutes" correspondents Anderson Cooper, Lara Logan and Scott Pelley. In addition to original segments, which range in content from investigative reports to interviews and profiles of sports figures, episodes feature updated classic sports stories from the "60 Minutes" archive.

FS1's challenge to ESPN's "SportsCenter" in the form of "Fox Sports Live" lasted a little more than two years, with the effort failing in part because traditional sports highlight shows no longer have broad appeal. A new iteration focuses on the chemistry of returning co-anchors Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole (this time they even get title recognition!) in a format that showcases their personalities, senses of humor and interviewing skills.
Veteran Miami Herald columnist and radio host Dan Le Batard leads a humorous, critical and sometimes controversial discussion of the hot sports topics of the day, from the Clevelander Hotel in Miami Beach. Known as a thoughtful and witty contrarian, Le Batard is not afraid to speak his mind and let his innate Cuban-American influences shine through, which is apparent in the fast-paced show. He's joined on each 30-minute episode by his father, Gonzalo "Papi" Le Batard.
While "SportsNation" is hosted by Cari Champion, Marcellus Wiley and LZ Granderson, it's really powered by the people, fueled by fan interaction and focused on fun.

While they day's hottest and weirdest sports topics are covered, also included is discussion of the smaller stories that people are taking about on the internet but often aren't seen on TV.

"Crowd Goes Wild" was a short-lived Fox Sports 1 studio show, but it had a lasting impact on Katie Nolan's career. The breakout star then fronted a popular online series for Fox Sports called "No Filter," and now she returns to TV to host her own series. The weekly "Garbage Time With Katie Nolan" features her unfiltered perspectives on sports' biggest issues, mixed with a dash of sarcasm and a sharp dose of comedy. The loose format also includes celebrity guests and field segments, where Nolan highlights the rough-around-the-edges qualities that make sports so special.
