According to Daily Variety, which we don't have a subscription for, so we're gonna just link to someone else who heard about this, Comedy Central has just filmed a pilot for a sports program based on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart." The show would be an half-hour weekly program, and the channel — well, not actually the channel; some people who speak for the channel — says they plan on spending more energy and time on sports.
Which brings up an interesting question: Will Comedy Central be more successful at sports than ESPN has been at comedy? You'd think they'd have to be, right?
