The series offers a “30-minute rundown of the finest in sports news, analysis, scores, highlights, rumor-mongering and petty personal attacks,” according to Comedy Central’s fake press release.
The new Onion Sports Network site launched yesterday—nearly a month before the show premieres on television—and has plenty to offer the impatient (fake) sports nut. The site features archival sports-related clips from the original web series Onion News Network, sports articles from The Onion, a “photo finish” section, and more.
The Onion Sports Network promises to do more than simply supplement the show; it lays out an entire universe of fake news, extending coverage featured in the show or previewing themes that may eventually air—a true parody of ESPN’s SportCenter and sports news website.
Onion SportsDome launches on Comedy Central on Tuesday, January 11 (1.11.11), right after the Season Three premiere of internet culture show Tosh.0.
