Colin Cowherd, the ever-so hyperbolic and eccentric ESPN radio host, pitched a sitcom to CBS earlier based on both himself and SportsNation co-host Michelle Beadle.

The network has now passed on the show according to Cowherd via twitter, which means we won’t see Damon Wayans portaying “Nick Herd” and Elisha Dushku channeling Michelle Beadle in some form, both of whom had signed on to do a pilot.

The announement will come from CBS officially on Wednesday at Upfronts, leaving sports fans with a sigh of relief and a new “potentially awful sportscaster sitcom” watch as Mike Greenberg sits back and waits to see if his show will get picked up.
