Fresh off of his 6th NASCAR title, Jimmie Johnson will co-anchor the 6 PM ET SportsCenter.  And look, there's...

Ken Jeong will anchor SportsCenter tonight

ESPN is once again resorting to celebrity gimmicks for an episode of SportsCenter.  Last year Billy Crystal made a "memorable" appearance anchoring SportsCenter to sell movie tickets and talk about his favorite Yankees players.  It was one of the most forgettable episodes in SportsCenter history as the sports news and highlights of the day took a backseat to Storytime...

Billy Crystal takes over 'SportsCenter'

I always thought the low point for SportsCenter during my lifetime would be the Tim Tebow birthday celebration from this past August.  It was a perfect intergalactic collision of awful television.  There was anchors, reporters, and analysts wishing Tebow a happy birthday like crazed stalkers, Sage Steele (ironically?) referring to Tebow's b-day as breaking news, a total abandonment...

Billy Crystal to anchor SportsCenter on Wednesday

SportsCenter doesn't make use of guest anchors all too often. Usually, it's the same rotation, with an occasional new face thrown into the mix after a test run on ESPNEWS. But on the 6 PM edition of SportsCenter on Wednesday, there will be a guest anchor for the show: actor and comedian Billy Crystal, in Bristol to plug his new movie Parental Guidance. I have arrived...
