Show Summary

Adam opens the show revisiting his complaint about sports highlights shows ruining the highlight packages by spoiling the scores on the screen, and wonders whether Bill Simmons can answer this vexing question when he arrives. Bill arrives shortly after, so they take an early break.

Bill Simmons is in studio next, and Adam compliments him on his HBO Show and its long form interviews. They talk about some of their favorite parts of the show’s first season, and Adam recalls some of his favorite interviews. They play a round of Made Up Movie and create premises for ‘Slice of Life’, ‘White Knight’, and ‘Step Cousins’. As the show wraps up, they play an Carolla/Simmons version of the Rotten Tomatoes Game.
