the “mary pat shelby” episode of sports night is easily an equal to the “love’s labor lost’ episode of er. cancelling sports night was one of the stupidest things that abc ever did. (right next to forcing a laugh track on them in many episodes of the first season.) comedy central’s been showing the sports night episodes on a crazy schedule lately, but they just played the final episode in the usual thursday night slot, so that may mean they’ll be starting over this thursday.
