The outspoken "Ragin' Cajun" will co-host the program with Luke Russert, his regular off-air sparring partner for all things sports and son of Carville's frequent interrogator, NBC journalist Tim Russert. "This show will be another opportunity for me to engage in the back-and-forth debates on sports that, until now, Luke and I have limited to the stadium," said Carville. "I talk about sports the same way I talk about politics, so it's safe to assume that Luke will be wrong most of the time."
