New Weekday Lineup on ESPN and ESPN2 Set for Football Season

Adjusted Sunday ESPN2 Schedule Also Coming

Beginning Monday, Aug. 5 and continuing throughout the football season, ESPN and ESPN2 will offer new weekday afternoon programing lineups, resulting from a combination of new shows, expansion of existing programs and different time slots for select series (some of which have already taken place). Additionally for the football season, ESPN2's Sunday schedule will also have a different look (beginning September 8).

Among the networks' weekday highlights that take effect in August are the addition of the daily, hour-long NFL Insiders, featuring Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter (ESPN, 3-4 p.m. ET) and the introduction of a daily soccer studio show, ESPN FC (ESPN2, Monday-Friday 5:30-6 p.m. and Sundays at midnight, beginning Sunday, Aug. 11).

Schefter (L) and Mortensen will co-host NFL Insiders

On Sundays from September 8 throughout the football season, the revamped ESPN2 schedule will include Cowherd on Football (9-10 a.m.), a new hour-long program focusing on both college and pro football discussion and commentary with host Colin Cowherd. In addition, the ESPN2 Sunday schedule will feature the weekly Outside the Lines at 8 a.m. followed on ESPN2 by The Sports Reporters (8:30 a.m.). Then, Cowherd on Football will lead into SportsCenter (10-11 a.m.) followed by the network's two-hour Fantasy Football Now (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.). Over on ESPN, the football Sunday morning schedule will continue to consist of SportsCenter through 10 a.m. followed by NFL Countdown from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Outside the Lines (ESPN2, 4:30-5 p.m.) and College Football Live (ESPN2, 5-5:30 p.m.) are also part of the planned August weekday schedule modifications, joining the recently changed new time slots for SportsNation (ESPN2, 3-4 p.m.) and Highly Questionable (ESPN2, 4-4:30 p.m.), as well last month's expansion of Numbers Never Lie from 30 to 60 minutes (ESPN2, 2-3 p.m.).

"The brand-new lineup is designed to reinforce our commitment to football during the most active time of year," said Norby Williamson, ESPN executive vice president, programming. "Fans will gain insight from some of ESPN's leading voices in new settings, while continuing to enjoy a strong mix of emerging shows and valuable, long-established series."
