    Dennis Miller Returns to TV Tonight
    By Natalie Rehkopf / Staff Writer

    Published Tuesday, November 6, 2007

    Issue 31 / Volume 88

    Sports enthusiasts will get a fresh and funny view on the world of sports this week as the Versus network premiers its new show, “Sports Unfiltered With Dennis Miller,” tonight at 10 EST.

    The weekly series will be filmed in Santa Barbara and is hosted by Dennis Miller, a comedian famous for his tenure on “Saturday Night Live” presenting the “Weekend Update.”

    According to a press release, Dennis Miller is a good host for the show due to his piercing sense of humor.

    “‘Sports Unfiltered With Dennis Miller’ unleashes his cerebral and acerbic wit on the world of sports through a variety of segments featured in the show each week,” the press release said.

    The segments of the show will include a rant from Miller about sports news, as well as in-studio and remote interviews with prominent sports celebrities.

    In a press release, Versus network President Gavin Harvey said he is very excited about the new show and he believes that it will be a great addition to the network’s existing sports programming.

    “‘Sports Unfiltered with Dennis Miller’ is a great complement to our live sports productions and is a major step towards the next level of our original programming evolution,” Harvey said.

    The network is currently home to the National Hockey League and also to programs for the Tour De France, Davis Cup Tennis, the Professional Bull Riders and other sports.

    Versus Senior Vice President of Programming and Production Marc Fein said he believes the show will embody many attributes of Versus as a network and that Miller’s approach to reporting sports news will engage fans in a lively and comical way.

    “Dennis Miller offers a new voice to the sports fans which is both authentic and challenging, two of the core brand attributes that embodies who we are as a network,” Fein said in the press release. “His thought-provoking approach to the current sports landscape will undoubtedly raise a few eyebrows and surely spark a healthy debate on the hottest issues in sports.”

    When asked about his take on the show, Dennis Miller said he is planning on calling key issues even better than a sports referee.

    “I’ll call ‘em as I see ‘em and hopefully I’ll see ‘em better than the home plate ump in the San Diego Padres-Colorado Rockies tiebreaker game,” Miller said in the release.

    I liked that show he used to have on HBO.

    I don't know about anything he's done recently.

    He had a show on CNBC which I'm not sure is on the air any longer. And he has a daily radio show now.

    Dennis Miller used to be funny. Now he's just an arrogant, verbose windbag.

    He tries to tap dance the very fine line between clever and pretentiously pompous. Some times I think he's very funny... some times I think he's very annoying.

    This new show is supposed to be modeled after the HBO show. We'll see tonight. 7pm DTV channel 604.

    I'd rather be a right-wing nutjob than have no nuts and no job.

    I hate what passes for his humor, because right wingers don't really have a sense of humor. Good comedians laugh at themselves, they don't threaten to shoot the people who laugh at them or muse about talking to them with baseball bats. That Faux network Daily Show clone was bloody awful and he fits that mold. Miller hasn't been funny for a long time and he's gotten bitter about it. He knows about as much about sports as Lee Corso.

    Miller used to be pretty funny on SNL, but he started sucking up to the neocons after his movie career went nowhere. He never ripped on liberals before he weaseled his way onto Fox News. Now I'm not calling him a turncoat, but Dennis Miller sold out faster than scratch and sniff panties at a Cub Scout convention.

    Heh .. he was a conservative then and a conservative now .. he just didn't express his views until he went on his own. So, how does that make him a turncoat? Did you ever watch his HBO show? It couldn't be any more conservative. He had Franken on there after he wrote his first book and ripped in to him the entire interview.
