Considering there aren’t any games, it is a strong night for sports on TV.
As I wrote earlier, I highly recommend the latest 30 for 30, Benji (ESPN, 8 p.m. ET). Be sure to watch with your kids. There is much to be learned from this film.
The latest Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel (HBO, 10 p.m. ET) features Frank Deford looking back at the life of Steve Sabol. Gumbel also interviews Michael Strahan.
Costas Tonight (NBC Sports Network, 10 p.m. ET) returns with an interview with former Boston manager Bobby Valentine. While I long since have overdosed on Red Sox coverage, it still figures to be interesting to see Bob Costas chat with Bobby V.
Also on the show, Michelle Beadle will make her debut on Costas Tonight, joining Costas to discuss top trending social media topics; and former NHL star and current NBC Sports Group analyst Jeremy Roenick will discuss the NHL lockout, and his experience going through a similar thing in 2005 when he lost an estimated $8 million in salary.
