Undisputed viewers are furious after taking the lead in the week of the NFL opener with a “shocking” first part of the live TV show

Undisputed viewers have criticized Skip Bayless for hosting Tuesday’s show with a segment on the GOAT debate between LeBron James and Michael Jordan.

Bayless, 71, and co. spent about 20 minutes discussing how the two NBA greats compare.

The conversation was triggered by a recent comment from James’ agent Rich Paul.

The Klutch Sports founder said the Los Angeles Lakers star faces more scrutiny than Jordan in the digital age, giving his client an edge in the GOAT debate.

And Undisputed led with Paul’s comment on Tuesday when Bayless called the James Jordan discussion his “all-time favorite Undisputed topic.”

The decision shocked FS1 viewers given the amount of live sports the panelist was able to talk about, including college football and the upcoming return of the NFL on Thursday.

“That’s why their ratings are bad. It’s just a show about Skip drooling/hating bro all over Jordan and then talking some cowboys,” one tweeted.

“They sprinkle in all the other teams and sports, but that’s pretty much the show. Skip only talks about his favorite things lol.”

Another wrote, “That was horrible… Terrible start to the show.”

And a third added: “They are really bad at seeing through the room.”

Some also pointed out the irony in Bayless’ choice for the opening segment, considering he’s sat at the desk with three NFL icons — and yet opted for the monotonous GOAT debate.

The redesigned Undisputed has had a rough start since returning from a two-month hiatus last week.

Although Keyshawn Johnson, Richard Sherman and Michael Irvin formed the new supporting cast of Bayless following the departure of Shannon Sharpe, the series experienced disappointing TV ratings early on.

The 71-year-old broadcaster seemed to be overshadowed by the three outspoken NFL legends in their first episodes together.

“Skip Bayless, in his 70s, tries to keep up with the times by opening the gates of hell to three generations: ‘This is the loudest black man who played football in his generation,'” said Dan Le Batard.

And he added: “Of course, when they get together, everyone talks at the same time because they all want to get the damn ball thrown.”

“And Skip Bayless shrinks his own show down to the size of a postage stamp – because how the hell are you going to get in the way of those three personalities?”
