ESPN Is Bringing Back A Classic Show On Sunday

ESPN is bringing back an all-time favorite show on Sunday.

One of ESPN's all-time shows is coming back for a special episode this weekend. Chris Berman and Tom Jackson are reuniting Sunday night for one more NFL Primetime.

From 1987 to 2005, Berman and Jackson recapped the day in the NFL with highlights, stats and commentary. The show led up to ESPN's Sunday Night Football game.

The show stopped airing on a weekly basis on Sunday nights in 2006 after NBC acquired the rights to the Sunday night NFL game. ESPN moved the show to Monday nights, but it didn't really feel as magical as the Sunday night edition.

This Sunday night, Berman, who's longer a full-time host for ESPN, will reunite with Jackson. They'll be joined by Keyshawn Johnson. Everyone is excited.

“I haven’t ridden a bike for a while, but I’ve learned how to at 7,” Berman told USA TODAY. “I called (Tom) after the third quarter of the Falcons-Eagles game on Saturday. We didn’t plan on it, but it was like we were right next to each other. It was just like we were back in the studio. I told him after the game, ‘Do you know what we just did?' ... It was like a dry run.”

The show will air directly after the NFC Championship Game. The Eagles and the Vikings are set to kick off at 6:40 p.m. E.T.

So, make sure to tune in to ESPN around 10 p.m. E.T. if you want to see Berman and Jackson.

It's been a while since Boomer and TJ recapped some NFL Playoff action. The two did come together on Monday Night Football earlier this year. But the last time they recapped NFL postseason play came after Super Bowl 50.
