OVERRATED: Sports networks

When ESPN first launched there was some question of how the network would fill 24 hours of programming with only sports. Even without broadcasts of Australian Rules Football (or even hockey), turns out there's enough to fill multiple networks including new player Fox Sports 1. Our thirst for big-money athletics is somehow unquenchable, even though most days any given channel seems filled with as many people talking about sports as playing them.
