CBS's James Brown Calls On Men To Improve The Way They Treat Women

Before tonight's Steelers-Ravens game, CBS's James Brown delivered a powerful speech regarding domestic violence in America and what men should do to take responsibility.

Media Approval Ratings: James Brown

Bill Simmons has implied that the success of CBS' pregame show over FOX's is because James Brown, Harvard grad (and former Atlanta Hawks draft pick), switched to the Eye in 2006. We would like to remind you all, by the way, that this guy hosted "America's Funniest Home Videos." Also, and we didn't realize this, he's a… » 2/18/08 1:35pm 2/18/08 1:35pm
