ESPN Fab Five Docu Sets Network Ratings Record

ESPN’s “30 for 30” documentary series was must-watch television in 2010. When it came out that more documentaries were going to be made in 2011 following a similar style, people naturally got excited. When it came out that the first 2011 documentary would focus on the Fab Five, people got really excited.

Promotion for the Fab Five documentary kicked into high gear in February. Reviews started coming out last week that it was, like most of the “30 for 30” docs, must-see TV. When it finally aired on Sunday night after the NCAA basketball tournament selection show, viewers realized that the hype was there for a reason — it was that good. The documentary provided a history lesson on the Fab Five, both on and off the basketball court, and gave us a glimpse into their world in the early 90s.

Between the excitement for the movie, the positive reviews, the hype and the very good time slot, the Fab Five documentary ended up garnering 2.7 million viewers. This made it the most viewed documentary in ESPN history, which includes all 30 of the docs aired last year. That is a pretty remarkable achievement, and it shows that even two decades later, the Fab Five still has drawing power.

Video: Jalen Rose x Jimmy King Discuss “Uncle Tom” Comment

I see where Jalen is coming from and I don’t necessarily disagree, but I wouldn’t call them an ‘Uncle Tom,’ but at the same when I was in high school I did have those same thoughts about their black players unfortunately. Your thoughts?

Update: ESPN won’t let me share this, watch it here.

Why I Can’t Stand Dick Vitale

Everyone knows who Dick Vitale is and if you’re really familiar you’ll know what gets him hard. COMMENTATING DUKE GAMES. I swear every Duke game I’ve watched since I was in high school this guy goes ape-shit when they play. Vitale goes on and on about how wonderful the Duke players are even if 90% of the players he talks about don’t even make it to the NBA. This anger isn’t coming from a North Carolina fan, its coming from a basketball fan. There seems to be a bias when he’s on-board for a Duke game, he rarely talks about the other teams players until they do something great, which is fine if he wasn’t groveling over all the Duke players before the tip-off. Dick Vitale is a big reason as to why college basketball is so popular now, but all I ask for is some exposure for the other team. Don’t get me wrong Duke tends to blow out the opposition, I give them that, but up until last year they haven’t won any championships since Jason Williams played which was 2001, so what happened to all the other teams that won those titles between then? Vitale didn’t ride for them the way he does for Duke. If you notice, every Duke game that’s on ESPN who’s front and center yelling “ooooh baby! yeeeeah baby! Coach K, I wanna blow you!” Dick Vitale. I dare you to say I’m wrong when talking about this, just watch the Duke game tonight and I bet he’ll be there commentating and jerking off at the same time. If I happen to be wrong then the Gods have answered one of my prayers. Maybe.
