Trivia: SportsCenter
  • Adored by the Network: ESPN has an extraordinarily lucrative contract with the NFL. As such, a SportsCenter episode airing after one of the network's NFL broadcasts will devote a huge chunk of its running time to discussing the game that just aired. And a Sunday night broadcast during football season is basically NFLCenter.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Current anchor Jonathan Coachman spent seven years in the WWE as a backstage interviewer/color commentator/evil authority figure. ESPN usually films a Continuity Nod segment with Coachman whenever a WWE superstar like The Rock or John Cena stop by; the wrestlers usually reminisce about ridiculing Coach during his tenure. In addition, ESPN recently hired Todd Grisham, who also spent years in the WWE as a backstage interviewer and color commentator.
