ESPN's New Morning Sportscenter, Derided as "WokeCenter" By Clay Travis, Debuts to Ratings So Repellent That Kurt Eichenwald Wants to Google Them to Prove To His Wife These Ratings Exist

Clarification: No, the show isn't called WokeCenter (I assume). I assume it's Clay Travis' joke. I put it in quotes to suggest that this is a quote from someone else (Clay Travis, in this case).

I don't know what the show is called. It should be called WokeCenter, though.

Sorry, this was written pretty poorly by me. Let me take another shot at it.


Clay Travis just loves his life, goofin' on SJW ESPN.

Yesterday ESPN debuted a brand new insanely expensive new WokeCenter AM show starring Mike Greenberg, Michelle Beadle and Jalen Rose. That trio of talent will be making just shy of $15 million a year and ESPN also poured tens of millions of dollars into their brand new studio as well.

As if that weren’t enough ESPN also spent millions and millions of dollars promoting the new show and rolled out their entire marketing platform to ensure viewers were aware the show was launching.

And, well, the show’s officially already ratings disaster.

The show received tens of thousands fewer viewers than SportsCenter did last year on both ESPN and ESPN2. This means ESPN spent tens of millions of dollars to have less viewers than it did before this show even existed. Ratings were down double digits over the same time last year.

How many viewers did WokeCenter AM have?

It had only 283k viewers, which, I believe, makes it the lowest debut for a new ESPN show in the 21st century.

WokeCenter AM!

Just out here killing it.


Again, this is the debut of the show on a Monday after Final Four weekend and after ESPN had spent millions and millions of dollars promoting.

The Avengers run is coming to an end -- Iron Man and Captain America will be leaving the movie series, to be replaced by... Captain Marvel (wow!!!). Star Wars is now such a damaged brand that people can make more money on YouTube by goofing on the franchise than by hyping up the franchise (which many people used to do).

And Disney's ESPN is Woke Toilet.

Can't wait to see this company really humbled.
