Hey, sports fans! Thought you had seen the last of Tom Arnold doing anything sports-related after he left “The Best Damned Sports Show Period”? (Assuming you were one of the 20 people who actually still watch.) Well, MEDIAWEEK says that he’s back on your TV, sort of, as he’s set to star in a Web series for CBS.
Titled “Heckle-U,” the 10-episode series focuses on “an underachieving slacker who excels at heckling during college basketball games with the help of his bartender uncle.” (In case you couldn’t figure it out, Arnold plays the bartender uncle.) So basically, the series will be celebrating the exact type of fan behavior that the NCAA works hard to discourage. Brilliant.
