2017 was a great year for ESPN’s First Take – the show recorded its most-viewed year ever, grew its overall audience 25 percent over last year, and had six of the top 10 most-viewed First Take telecasts of all time.
And now, in the words of Stephen A. Smith, “onward and upward for 2018.”
First Take is available to stream on demand via the ESPN App, so fans will never have to miss a heated debate, impassioned soliloquy or epic showdown ever again. Shortly after its live airing, the latest episode will be available under the “Watch” tab on the app. Check out the new promo featuring an animated Stephen A. and Max Kellerman spreading the word below:
