One of the few things on which I could tolerate Chris Berman was NFL Primetime which he hosted from 1987 through 2005. He did the NFL highlights well and he gets to return to his old stomping grounds on Christmas Eve as his Primetime partner, Tom Jackson will co-host a special Saturday night edition on ESPN2 at 8 Eastern time. It will be opposite a special edition of NFL GameDay Final on NFL Network at the same time.
Here’s the ESPN blurb.
Chris Berman and Tom Jackson, the duo who hosted the critically-acclaimed NFL PrimeTime — annually cable television’s highest-rated studio show — every fall Sunday night from 1987-2005, will team up again for a special Christmas Eve presentation of the one-hour highlights and analysis program Saturday, Dec. 24, at 8 p.m., live on ESPN2 (re-aired with updates on ESPN on Sunday, Dec. 25, at 1 a.m.). On Monday, Dec. 26, at 3 p.m., Trey Wingo, Tim Hasselbeck and Merril Hoge, return to host the program on ESPN (re-aired with updates Tuesday, Dec. 27, at 1 a.m.).
I may live tweet this.
