You'll Have To Stay Up Late For Stephen A. Now

In news we'd heard might be coming for a while, our main man Stephen A. Smith — whose show "Quite Frankly With Stephen A. Smith," in case you forgot, is "bigger than ESPN" despite having worse ratings than billiards — is having his show moved from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the end of the month.

It's the latest attempt to tinker with the fledgling program — with a four-year contract for Smith, the show's not exactly getting cancelled — and, as much as we might like to make fun of it, it does seem to make a bit of sense. The show has always been a confusing fit so early in the day.


Now, perhaps, they can jazz up the studio audience a bit, give it more of a funky late-night feel, maybe add a band or something. Also a good idea: A new host. But hey, one step at a time.
