(SP) – Fox Sports announced today plans for a new debate show called “Unacquitted with Skip and O.J.” that will feature talking head Skip Bayless and longtime football player and jail resident O.J. Simpson.
“We’re really excited about this new debate show,” said Fox Sports president Eric Shanks. “I think it features two of the lightning rods in sports today. People are going to want to see them go at each other. I just hope it doesn’t get to the point of murder.”
“That was a joke,” added Shanks.
Simpson has been incarcerated in Nevada in relation to an armed robbery in 2007 in Las Vegas. He was previously acquitted of a double murder in California in 1997. His new co-host has repeatedly been accused of murdering logic and reason.
“O.J. Simpson is one of the biggest names in sports and even in America,” said Bayless. “He’s had a lot of time to think about how bad LeBron James is while incarcerated, and I can’t wait to hear his thoughts.”
Simpson says he can’t wait to get started.
“The Juice is loose,” said Simpson. “And I’m ready to take it to Skip.”
Fox Sports also announced today that most of their few remaining employees have decided to quit.
