Hosts Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon tape Pardon the Interruption at Atlantic Video, which is a production studio a couple blocks from my house.
They tape the program at about 4 p.m., and it airs on ESPN at 5:30 p.m. They later re-broadcast the show on ESPNEWS at 6:30 p.m.
On Tuesday, ESPN didn't air PTI because the 9th inning of a World Baseball Classic game took about 5 billion years to end.
Here's what annoyed me about that scenario:
Meanwhile, last July PTI started putting the final segment of its show in the middle of SportsCenter (as a an effort to force viewers to sit through SportsCenter just to see the rest of PTI).
Evidently, they don't put up with that sort of crap in Canada, where the show airs on TSN. As a result, at the end of the penultimate segment, Tony Kornheiser often waves a Canadian flag and says "Goodnight, Canada," which is a pretty random thing to be saying to the rest of us in the middle of a show.
