Show and Tell

THE LATEST addition to SI TV's stable of original programming is an irreverent look at the sports landscape with Will Leitch, the founder of Deadspin and a contributor to New York magazine, The New York Times and GQ as well as SPORTS ILLUSTRATED. Combining guest interviews, essays, remote segments and more, The Will Leitch Show will celebrate the joy and absurdity of the games, leagues and players we love—or hate—to watch.

The program debuts this week with the perfect guest to get viewers ready for the Winter Olympics: Tara Lipinski, the 1998 Oympic figure skating gold medalist turned actress, commentator and analyst. As she prepares to broadcast from PyeongChang, she gives Leitch the scoop on Johnny Weir's receding hairline, worries about security in South Korea and the surprising coffee-related reason why every other media outlet at the Olympics hates NBC.

The Will Leitch Show joins SI TV's growing collection of original programming, including Crossover TV, covering all things NBA; Planet Fútbol, an in-depth look at the soccer universe; and The Line, your guide to the world of sports betting.

TOE PICK TO TOE PICK

Looking for another way to get into that Olympic figure skating mind-set? Catch one of the 1990s' most beloved rom-coms on SI TV. In The Cutting Edge, a talented but demanding ice princess (Moira Kelly) uneasily pairs up with a scruffy former hockey player (D.B. Sweeney) to go for Olympic gold against the Soviets. There's no better way to stay entertained while waiting for this year's Games to start.
