** 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.

''[=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) and 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). 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.

** Walk the Plank, where the player has to (again) guess the percentage of voters who picked a particular choice. For every percentage point they're off, their cartoon avatar gets one step closer to walking off the plank. Many [[IncrediblyLamePun bad pirate-themed puns]] ensue. Much like [[ThePriceIsRight Cliffhanger]] actually.

* TakeThat: In response to the NFL's recent crackdown on violent hits, December 1, 2010's episode featured a new game, ''Were They Suspended?''
