At the beginning of the pandemic, American sports fans were left with no live sports to watch for nearly four months. Then suddenly in June and July, all the major sports leagues returned to play at once creating a sports fan dream. Or so we thought. In reality, people aren't watching and viewership for all the leagues is down steeply from 2019, including the NBA finals, the Stanley Cup, and even NFL games. Why is that? This week we try and figure out why that is happening. We also share our thoughts on The Trial of the Chicago 7, The Lie, and Deaf U,
Last week the NHL became the first major U.S. sports league to announce a formal plan for its return. This week we talk about what the plan is, our thoughts on the playoff structure, and what this could mean for other sports leagues. We also share our thoughts on the 2011 legal thriller The Lincoln Lawyer, Disney's first gay protagonist, and our other streaming suggestions.
