Michael Strahan to Get Sitcom

by Ryan Wilson

It's not typically the case that professional athletes successfully parlay a second career as a sitcom star into a mantle full of People's Choice Awards. That doesn't mean former ballplayers can't eke out a living on the small screen, however. And while critical acclaim is nice, it's all about the work, right?

For example, who could dismiss Alex Karras' rousing performance as George Papadapolis in "Webster"? Then there was Fred Dryer as "Hunter", not to mention "Bob Uecker in "Mr. Belvedere." Forgettable or ironically hip? It's a fine line.

Either way, this distinguished-yet-still-not-fully appreciated-for-their-work group have paved the way for others. Like Michael Strahan, who, according to Variety,will get his own show.
