ESPN Unveils Its Fall Lineup Featuring The Pat McAfee Show
The start of the 2023 NFL season will usher in a new era at ESPN.
As what has been a roller coaster of a year for the worldwide leader in sports begins to wind down, ESPN has released its new TV schedule, which will launch on September 7.
In a year that saw the network sign perhaps the biggest name in sports in Pat McAfee, while simultaneously laying off both on air and behind the scenes talent, ESPN finally looks ready to move forward.
ESPN’s Fall Schedule
Beginning the same day that the 2023 NFL season kicks off, ESPN’s robust weekday studio lineup will begin at 8 a.m. ET with two hours of the Mike Greenberg led Get Up.
This will be followed by First Take featuring Stephen A. Smith from 10 a.m. to noon and then The Pat McAfee show from noon until 2 p.m.
Following McAfee, SportsCenter will return to the 2 p.m. time slot. The show will be followed by ESPN stalwarts, NBA Today, NFL Live, Around the Horn, and Pardon the Interruption. Weekdays will then wrap up with the 6 p.m. edition of SportsCenter.
Here Comes McAfee
“We can’t wait for Pat and his team to bring a fresh new energy to ESPN’s weekday lineup, led by some of the most prominent, creative and authentic voices in sports,” says Burke Magnus, president of content at ESPN. “The Pat McAfee Show will redefine what success looks like across multiple platforms. And will bring a new, contemporary audience to our afternoon time block. It’s a perfect fit.”
In addition to airing on ESPN, The Pat McAfee show will be simulcast on ESPN on Youtube and ESPN+ from noon until 2 p.m. The final 2-3 p.m. hour will then be broadcast exclusively on Youtube and ESPN+.
According to the network, additional details, including regular guests, will be announced in the coming weeks.
