It's not the first instance in which the Worldwide Leader family of networks has taken a self-deprecating shot at itself for the much criticized "The Decision" program from last week, but it's without question the most high profile of them. Utilizing two comedy heavyweights in Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, the ceiling of hilarity is fairly high. Of course, a rule of thumb when Seth Meyers is involved is that you know comedic potential is going to be squandered.

What results is a pretty warmed-over and toothless twist on the premise of the show. Here Carell is solemnly choosing which chain restaurant he will be dining at this evening. Only the manufactured drama of the event is the only thing being sent up. Obviously, ESPN wants to show it can poke fun at itself for its major ethical lapse, just don't expect any particularly damaging satire to take place.
