The Barclays Premier League Review Show will be returning to the Fox Sports Regional Networks for the 2009-2010 season after a break of several years, according to an inside source.
Many followers of English football on U.S. television may remember the early incarnations of the Review Show, which was shown on Fox regional affiliates throughout the late 80s and early-to-mid 90s. For many English football fans in the States, those shows conjure up memories of the then-two hour program hosted by Lionel Bienvenue and Max Bretos. During those days, they took the one hour program as we see it now and expanded it into two hours by showing more of the match action from the top game as well as highlights from the Celtic and Rangers matches from the previous weekend.
In addition to the Review Show, FSN will be showing the following programs throughout the country: Barclays Premier League matches (on delay), UEFA Champions League, UEFA Champions League Pregame, and the UEFA Champions League Magazine Show.
Previously only the FSN’s aired the 2 hour repeats of the Barclays Premier League games, usually on Tuesdays.
