It used to be the only way you could watch “The Box Score,” the wrap-up show for The Dan Patrick Show was online. Then DirecTV picked up it to compliment its airing of the DP show. Now starting on Monday, January 7, NBC Sports Network will begin airing the show.
The half-hour program which airs at noon ET involves the four “Danettes,” Executive Producer Paul “Paulie” Pabst, Operations Manger Patrick “Seton” O’Connor, guest booker Todd “Fritzy” Fritz and blogger Andrew “McLovin” Perloff with host the multi-tattooed Casey Geraghty. Geraghty moderates while the Danettes talk about what happened on the day’s Dan Patrick Show.
The Box Score will continue to air on DirecTV just as the Dan Patrick Show does on the satellite provider’s Audience Network.
Here’s the NBC announcement.
