I like the commentating team of Lon McEachern and Ken Shamrock...Lon is always smooth on the mic while Ken does a good job with the technical aspects of the game. If EliteXC were to use one or both for the CBS show, either would do a more than serviceable job. I know Frank Shamrock has been mentioned as a possibility for May 31st, but I have always thought Ken was much better on color.
The production of the show seemed solid, intro was slick. This was a good foot in the door for Strikeforce with NBC. Who knows, maybe in the future they can work a deal to fill in for Saturday Night Live when the show is off for a week or possibly in that slot during the summer months. Watching the shows, they are branded specifically for NBC, which is kinda of a questionable decision. If they are paying for the time to put this show on, Strikeforce should be looking for ways to re-brand and re-purpose the show to recoup some costs. IF the IFL is able to syndicate their show internationally, then this could also be an avenue for Strikeforce. Slapping the NBC logo on everything on the show kinda makes it difficult to re-edit or re-package.
