Is there too much poker on tv?
With poker tournaments on some tv channel every day of the week now, do you think we have gotten to the point of too much of a good thing. I have no problem with seeing a lot of quality poker shows but I think because of the popularity of the game, there are a lot of cheesy shows just capitalizing on poker's popularity without delivering a quality broadcast.
I'm sure ESPNs WSOP coverage and the Travel Channels WPT coverage are most people's favorites but are their other shows that you think are worth watching? If so, what are they? On the other side of the coin, which shows do you feel are terrible and should be canceled immediately?
Personally I have enjoyed FSNs Poker Superstars 2 tournament. The structure is different from other events but there was some great drama at the end as players were in do or die situations to advance further in the tournament. I think having the winner decided in a series of heads up matches is also interesting. Other than that, a lot of the other FSN poker shows such as the ultimate bet tournament and the poker million were boring to me.
