ESPN's NFL PrimeTime will make its return in 2019, host Chris Berman confirmed on Friday. The show will air online at ESPN+.
PrimeTime was the network's leading evening show following NFL Sundays every week from 1987-2005. Berman hosted the show alongside former Broncos linebacker Tom Jackson.
"Once upon a time at ESPN there was this marvelous show called NFL PrimeTime with yours truly and Tom Jackson. ... Wouldn't it be great if that came back in the 100th season of pro football and the 40th anniversary of ESPN?" Berman said in a video released on Friday. "It Is. Sometimes dreams do come true. So join us for NFL PrimeTime on ESPN+. Same as it ever was. Back to the future."
