With Fox airing Super Bowl LI from Houston this year, it means that it will have plenty of programming on FS1 during the week. Among the highlights during Super Bowl Week will be daily editions of Garbage Time With Katie Nolan and Fox Sports Live With Jay and Dan. And on Super Bowl Sunday, there will be a special edition of Undisputed with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe that will air on the Fox mothership.
Yes, Skippy and Shannon will move from cable to broadcast for one day and hopefully one day only with their Undisputed show. Unlike their daily edition which runs for 2½ hours, the Super Bowl Sunday version will be on from 1-2 p.m. ET.
The official description of the Super Bowl Sunday Undisputed show is as follows:
“SKIP AND SHANNON: UNDISPUTED SUPER BOWL SPECIAL covers the hottest topics leading up to the big game. Award-winning TV host and author Skip Bayless and three-time Super Bowl Champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe lead the fearless debates alongside moderator Joy Taylor.”
With more eyeballs on Undisputed on Fox, it could give the show its biggest audience since the show premiered last September. Who knows where this wil lead.
The schedule on Super Bowl Sunday, February 5 on Fox looks like this (all times Eastern):
11 a.m. — Road to the Super Bowl: The annual NFL Films-produced special
12 p.m. — Undisputed: See above
1 p.m. — Fox Super Bowl Kickoff: Charissa Thompson hosts
2 p.m. — Fox Super Bowl Pregame: The Fox NFL Sunday crew will be live from Houston
6:30 p.m. — Super Bowl LI (Live)
10 p.m. (approximate) — Super Bowl Post Game
10:30 p.m. (approximate) — 24: Legacy
FS1 will air a Super Bowl Postgame show at 10:30 p.m.
For FS1, the daily schedule from January 30-February 3 shapes up this way:
9:30 a.m. — Undisputed
12 p.m. — The Herd With Colin Cowherd
3 p.m. — Garbage Time With Kate Nolan: Super Bowl Edition
4 p.m. — Fox Sports Live With Jay and Dan
5 p.m. — Speak for Yourself With Cowherd and Whitlock
6 p.m. — NASCAR Race Hub (except Friday, February 3)
Unlike last year, where Jason Whitlock hosted his House Party by the Bay for Super Bowl 50, Whitlock will do his regular Speak for Yourself show with Colin Cowherd.
And FS1 will air various live events during the week in primetime including a Super Bowl Opening Night ceremonies on Monday, January 30, a Premier Boxing Champions event on Thursday, February 2, a US Men’s Soccer international friendly vs. Jamaica on Friday, February 3 and a UFC Fight Night from Houston on Saturday, February 4.
Fox airs the NFL Honors on Saturday, February 4.
So there will be plenty of programming on both FS1 and Fox in the days and hours leading up to Super Bowl LI.
