Getting the chance to go back and forth between the US and Canada the last few weeks, I have got the chance to see the differences between ESPN SportsCenter and TSN Sportscentre. While ESPN's look like it was miles ahead, it had about 60% less highlights, and they seemed to talk about Lebron half the show.

It seemed more TMZ than it did an actual highlights/sports show.

Putting up with Fox Sports 1's odd panels to actually get to some highlights is usually my only option.

Please tell me this is not becoming common place in the 'States?

That's funny because tonight's Sportscenter had a bunch of MLB highlights and World Cup coverage.

Pretty big ripoff of FOX Sports Live, IMO.

If you really want to get into it, FS1 is a giant ripoff of ESPN. Just sayin'.

The set is pretty cool, but I like the new ticker and story rundown on the side. Like others have said, its a cleaner and easier to read.

Has anyone else seen the new top 10? It quite literally made me dizzy. I don't mind the new ticker and story rundown, but some of the graphics really upset me. For example when they were showing the possible ways that the US team could advance they kept scanning over the words moving left to right kind of so that I could barely read it by the end. I don't know if Im the only one, but so far I have hated it.

From what little I watched last night/this morning, it looks like they've gone totally ape :censored: with those screens, which I love. I thought it was all green screen stuff but if it is then I was fooled.

The influx of white is very welcome.

Some camera angles feel odd to me. They feel to upright/facing down/far away or whatever.

I miss the days when sports casts focused more on the content of the material and less on trying to be some bootleg Quentin Tarantino production...

Those were the days. I also missed the days when our main source of information came from someone who didn't have an '@'. Twitter is slowly ruining the world. Anyway, back on point...I really like the bottom line. It is clean and very easy to read.

This can't be true.

I HATE this!

Since they're rebranding and all, this would have been the perfect time to rename the show the "Lebron James Praise-A-Thon Hour."

You knew 'today' was coming, didn't you? <_<

I'm not really a fan of all the Helvetica being used but I do admit, it is a clean look. The set itself is beautiful.

I love the new set! The old set was used waaaaaaay too long.

However, I would've used Handel Gothic or Eurostile instead of Helvetica, but it'll grow on me. Or perhaps bringing back Univers Light Condensed from the mid 90's.

Not sure if this anything important, but is this a new L3 I saw on tonight's episode of SVP's SportsCenter. In case you've sat under a rock the last year, maybe this is another step in the SportsCenter sub-branding of the last year or so?

I like it though...cleaner than the standard one they use on the other SportsCenter shows. You could say it's taking a page from maybe...NFL Network (minus the always-on show logo)
