Sportscenter has literally become celebrity.  Liam Neeson was on around the time Taken 2 came out, mostly promoting his movie.  They had him try to talk about the Jets and Tebow even though he admitted to not even following the sport.  "I just don't understand the game" he kept repeating.  Steve Carrell was on and they had him do the TOp 10 as Brick from Anchorman.  That one made me cringe.

There exists a happy medium between "Highlight Express", which I didn't even know existed until I heard it was canceled, and the current iteration of Sportscenter.  The problem being that ESPN doesn't care to find it as long as they get ratings.  And they are.
