11 Theories As To What Bill Simmons New HBO Show Will Look Like
Now that we know Bill Simmons is officially headed to HBO for a weekly show, we can begin speculating what that show might look like. A talk show? A variation of his "30 For 30" sports docs? Some sort of combination of the two? Through intense transcendental meditation, we managed to put ourselves inside the mind of Boston's prodigal son and came up with some concepts for his latest project, speculating what this sports media superteam might roll out with based on HBO's track record of high quality television content and Simmons' predilection for sports nerdom.
Eleven ideas as to what Bill Simmons' new HBO show might actually look like, below:
11) A sports media-centric "Tosh.0" that exclusively examines viral clips of Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith saying dumb shit, then gives them a chance to do it over.
10) Bill gives DVD commentary for "Cheers" reruns in front of a live studio audience.
9) Episodic documentaries about pets he owns/is considering owning.

8) One hour of live streaming closed circuit footage of a nude Tom Brady relaxing in his hyperbaric chamber.
7) A panel of prominent sports and pop culture figures engaged in a lively discussion about their favorite moments from season five of "The Wire."
6) "Entourage" except about the glamorous life of sports bloggers.
5) Bill Simmons painstakingly analyzes his current contract with HBO to figure out how he can become the first person in the network's 43-year history to be suspended.
4) You standard issue late night talk show consisting entirely of interviews with his own family members, obscure professional wrestlers and members of the 1993-94 Boston Celtics.
3) Something like "Last Week Tonight," minus the humor, charm and social significance.
2) A gritty noir cop drama in the spirit of "True Detective" where a sexually frustrated Bill and alcoholic-version of cousin Sal uncover ESPNs shady dealings with a secret society of billionaire psychopaths known as "The National Football League."
1) The exact same thing as his simulcast "B.S. Report" podcast except he swears occasionally.
