The First Take Ratings are in!

Stephen A. Smith and ESPN’s show First Take have seen their ratings drop drastically following the departure of Max Kellerman. Smith, who acknowledged that First Take needed a change, now faces an early decline in numbers that has reportedly landed the show amongst the worst at ESPN. Although Smith believes his ratings were dipping with Max.

Quite the contrary, since Max’s departure, the show is no longer #1, which it was when Max was on the show.

ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption is ahead of First Take, followed by Around the Horn. et Up, the early morning sports TV show that precedes First Take, also has a higher viewing audience than Smith’s show.

Kellerman served as the co-host on First Take for the last five years.

Since being kicked off Fist Take, Max joined Keyshawn Johnson and Jay Williams on their own ESPN morning radio show. Max also has a new show, This Just In, which premiered on September 14th.

It would be fantastic if Max’s new show can pull higher numbers than First Take.

We’ll have to wait and see how that shakes out…
