As the show opens up, Adam relives his 12 hour trip to Chicago, including a chat with Gina’s Aunt, and a very long Southwest flight home. Adam then complains about a terrible neck pillow that Mike August got for him, and a cab driver who had his seat reclined. The guys also take fan phone calls about random food combinations, athletes protesting the National Anthem, and ESPN’s focus on social issues instead of just sports. Before the break, the guys talk about the ‘pre-honk’.
Jeff Meacham is in studio next, and Adam congratulates him on the success of the TV series ‘Black-ish’. The guys then discuss Tom Cruise, and finally being able to buy a house. Up next, the guys play a Tom Cruise-themed round of the Rotten Tomatoes Game. In the last part of the show, Gina reads news stories about leaked clips of Lawrence O’Donnell freaking out on his staff, Trump’s criticism of NFL players taking a knee during the National Anthem, and a round of Germany or Florida.
Watch the premiere of Black-ish on Tuesday 10/3 at 9pm on ABC. You can follow today’s guest on Instagram @JeffMeacham.
