''[=SportsNation=]'' is a part of {{ESPN}}'s afternoon block of "journalists yell about sports" shows (along with ''Series/NumbersNeverLie,'' ''Series/DanLeBatardIsHighlyQuestionable'', ''Series/PardonTheInterruption'', ''Series/AroundTheHorn'', and formerly ''Series/JimRomeIsBurning''), hosted by by Marcellus Wiley (formerly Colin Cowherd), Max Kellerman (formerly Michelle Beadle, who left ESPN and joined NBC Sports in May 2012, then Charissa Thompson, who replaced Beadle, then left in June 2013 for Fox Sports 1), and Michelle Beadle (who returned to ESPN in January 2014). Unlike the rest of said shows, this one utilizes gratuitous amounts of WebTwoPointOh wizardry to gauge the response of viewers voting on the [=SportsNation=] section of ESPN's website, in a format that often involves guessing the predictions of the users in various formats, inspecting the top 3 best/worst/embarrassing moments of the day, and looking at sports-related viral videos.

* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Michelle calls the randomized board sometimes used at the :40 segment (the "Another desk or screen game" segment mentioned in the show's pattern above) "The Awesome Board of Awesomeness." (Occasionally, when Michelle hits the randomizing button, especially when there is a person's picture on the board she doesn't want to choose, [[ShoutOut she'll say]] "[[PressYourLuck No whammies!]]")

** A special episode of ''Winners Bracket'' featured a 50th anniversary tribute to ''WideWorldOfSports'' (which, ironically, ''Sports Saturday'' was a cheap successor to in a way)

** Multi-Poll Choice, in which Michelle has to (once again) guess the percentage of voters who picked a particular choice, out of four answers. Colin dresses as [[AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy Ron Burgundy]] while hosting the segment and makes many bad Burgundy-esque jokes.

** The 2012 Halloween episode took Colin's [[AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy Ron Burgundy]] impression to its logical conclusion and made the entire set up to look like the newsroom from ''Anchorman''. Charissa even dressed up as Veronica Corningstone and they presented a list of the 31 best sports trick plays in the style of an old newscast.
