FANS didn’t get a chance to watch many of the popular sports television shows on Labor Day.
Kay Adams’ show Up And Adams and ESPN’s NFL Live and NBA Today were absent from live television during the US National Day.
ESPN’s popular sports show First Take was in action on Monday.
However, the usual two-hour program has been reduced to just one hour from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
The tennis US Open took over ESPN’s coverage at 11 a.m.
For the other programs, however, viewers weren’t able to see “Up And Adams,” which first aired last September.
Kay is fast approaching its first anniversary with the show.
Fans were also unable to watch NFL Live, which will be hosted by Laura Rutledge along with analysts Mina Kimes, Dan Orlovsky and Marcus Spears.
And finally, TV viewers couldn’t switch to NBA Today, hosted by star Malika Andrews.
The NBA show also features panelists Kendrick Perkins, Chiney Ogwumike, Richard Jefferson and Zach Lowe.
First Take starred Shannon Sharpe, who made his debut as a regular on Monday.
The NFL legend began his new venture alongside Stephen A. Smith.
Sharpe got off to an impressive start on “First Take” when he donned a green blazer with a matching tie and finished off his look with a brown hat.
And the former Fox Sports star gave Smith a hug and received a warm introduction from presenter Molly Qerim.
The three personalities spoke about Deion Sanders’ stunning first win with the Colorado Buffaloes and his son, quarterback Shedeur Sanders.
They also discussed the NFL, talking about the New York Jets and New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliot.
