Warner Bros. Discovery has really stepped up the promotion for season 2 of Game Theory. On Wednesday morning, host Bomani Jones appeared on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers. On Thursday, the company will put the HBO show on another network.

Game Theory will air for the first time on basic cable this week. The premier episode of season 2, which aired on Friday on HBO and HBO Max, will re-air on TNT.

The episode, which features Jones’s take on LeBron James’s legacy of “player empowerment” in the NBA, will air ahead of the network’s NBA slate. Game Theory will be on at 6:30 PM Eastern. That will be followed by Inside the NBA, which leads into the 7:30 PM tipoff between the Knicks and Celtics.

Kay Adams: I’ve Always Been A Risk Taker

“It was a let’s rip this up, we are going to hire a production company, we got new people. I like that process.”

Kay Adams

Back in September, Kay Adams began a new show on FanDuel TV called Up And Adams every Monday-Friday at 11 AM ET. It was a new venture for Adams after being the host of Good Morning Football on NFL Network from 2016-2022. If there’s one thing that Adams loves, it’s starting something new.

Adams was a guest on The Adam Schein Podcast this week and she told Schein that she loves to start up shows and that she is never afraid to take a risk when it comes to looking at a new opportunity.

“I really like starting shows. Good Morning Football was a startup by all means. It was a let’s rip this up, we are going to hire a production company, we got new people. I like that process. When I decided to leave Good Morning Football, I just felt like I had done such good work there and I felt so good about it. We won the Emmy out the door. That was kind of I feel good about this, what else is out there?

“I’ve never been someone who is afraid to take risks. I make decisions pretty quickly when it comes to an opportunity…I think there is a lot of opportunity here. I’m trying to focus on presence and what I have. This show is important to me. I have a team of really hungry people who took a chance just like I did leaving places that they had great jobs to come work on something new and they work their asses off,  my team at Up And Adams….I’m trying to focus more on getting that off the ground, getting that to a good place.”

When Adams was talking about her new show, she thinks that the key to making the show is a success is making sure she gets good information.

“FanDuel wanted to put out content. They started a TV station. They’re going to have some exciting programming coming up, but they kicked it off with me. They said alright ‘We’ll give you an hour, good luck kid. Go do what you want.’ I said what do I want to do for an hour?

“We are still figuring it out. It changes everyday. That’s the incredible grace of it all, you have the freedom to do that. I wanted to give good information. The importance of bringing in the people who are in the locker room and to be able to give some of these beat writers that are in the locker rooms and know what’s going on and the change of energy everyday a voice on a national platform has been really incredible to do. Good information has been really important.”

At times, Adams has Rob Gronkowski on her show and she likes that she can show a different side of Gronkowski to the viewers and try to change the way people view him a little bit.

“Everyone thinks he’s a goof. He’s got things to say, he’s evolved…It’s fun to watch him evolve as a character. It’s really hard to re-write your narrative in this NFL or get anyone to look at you differently. If I can pull that out of anyone, it’s a win.”

Pam Oliver has covered the NFL on FOX for longer than some of the league’s top players have been alive. That will not change next season. Oliver told Richard Deitsch of The Athletic that she is committed to returning for her 29th season.

It is a little early to know exactly what next season will look like. It is the last one on Oliver’s current contract.

“I’m committed for another year,” she said. “Beyond that, it’s a process where you sit down and think about it. It’s a two-way street, of course. I’ve kind of been assured for as long as I want to do this job, I can, and they’ve been really good about figuring out where I am and what I’d like to do. I’m sure they’ve got plans of their own, but when you tell me that I can do this for as long as I want to, I expect that to be the case.”

Pam Oliver has opened up in the past about her struggle with chronic migraines. She told Deitsch that she still cannot explain why they occur or why they are so severe, but this past season things improved a bit.

“It wasn’t like six days’ worth of migraines like before. It was down to two or three days, so I did feel better most weeks. But it was still pretty prevalent.”

Oliver spent the 2022 season working with FOX’s number two booth of Joe Davis and Daryl Johnson.

FOX Must be Compensated If Texas, Oklahoma Leave Big 12 Before 2025

“It’s been reported that part of that compensation could include the Sooners and Longhorns playing Big 12 opponents on the road in non-conference games once they’ve joined the SEC.”

Is the 2023-24 season for Texas and Oklahoma their last as members of the Big 12? It’s possible.

But if there’s going to be an agreement on the two schools making the transition to the SEC a year early, both the Sooners and Longhorns would be subject to exit fees and forfeiture of their media rights distribution money for 2024-25. That’s according to reporting from Dennis Dodd at CBS Sports.

FOX would also need to be compensated for Oklahoma and Texas bailing on the final year of the Big 12’s current media rights deal. It’s been reported that part of that compensation could include the Sooners and Longhorns playing Big 12 opponents on the road in non-conference games once they’ve joined the SEC.

A portion of the money paid back to the conference for an early exit would go back to Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas Tech and West Virginia, which saw a 19% cut ($16 million) in their media money over the next two years as part of bringing in BYU, Cincinnati, Houston and UCF as members starting this year. Big 12 schools receive 42.6 million annually under the current deal.

The conference begins a new media rights deal in 2025-26.
