The Triumphant Return of Norm Macdonald

Sports Show with Norm Macdonald will feature Macdonald’s unique and comedic take on the most topical and controversial stories from the sports world. Taped in front of a live studio audience, the fast-paced and informative show will cover all sports — from the popular to the obscure — delivered with Macdonald’s unforgettable style, reminiscent of his hugely popular run as SNL’s Weekend Update anchor.

Here’s some great news: Norm Macdonald is returning to TV. Comedy Central just picked up the creatively titled Sports Show with Norm Macdonald for an eight-episode run starting in April. Here’s the official synopsis:So it’ll be a 30 minute monologue on sports every week? I think I’d be OK with that. It’s also sort of strange that this will be Comedy Central’s second comedy sports show, along with The Onion Sports Network. But I imagine Norm’s show will be a hell of a lot different than that, so I’m sure they can peacefully co-exist.

Now, just because, here’s a YouTube clip called “The Best of Norm Macdonald” to remind you of why you should be excited about this:
