John Ourand of SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY and SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL breaks the news today that the Versus TV show Jenn Sterger appears on, The Daily Line, has been canceled.

Jenn Sterger Show On Versus Axed

Ourand via Twitter:

“Versus has axed @jennifersterger’s show “The Daily Line” because of anemic ratings.”

Ah, the irony. Thanks to her reportedly reciprocal texting relationship with Brett Favre, Sterger has had her public profile explode in recent weeks. But that obviously didn’t translate to ratings.

Why Are Favre Jeans Ads Still In Heavy Rotation?

If you’ve watched television the past 48 hours, it’s virtually physically impossible not to have seen a Wrangler commercial featuring Brett Favre.

Brett Favre Wrangler Ad

(Must not be current with their New York periodicals)

With coverage coming from main media outlets and NFL reporters on the NFL’s investigation into alleged inappropriate text messages and voicemails sent by Favre to New York Jets employees, media junkies are seemingly perplexed that Wrangler may actually be increasing the number of Favre ads airing.

Today USA TODAY ran a poll on the subject accompanied with the following copy:

Kind of odd, isn’t it, that Brett Favre’s Wrangler commercial is still running?

… He also still has a presence on the home page of the jeans-maker’s website, despite the questions being asked about whether he crossed the line on sexual harassment.

If you were Wrangler, would you still be running the ad?

On the contrary, USA Today readers who voted in the poll haven’t found it odd that Favre’s Wrangler spot is still in heavy rotation, as 71% agreed with jeans maker’s call not to pull the ad.

A similar situation played out on sports business expert Darren Rovell’s CNBC blog today. Read more…

Dad Gummitt! 15,000 Tix Unsold For FSU Opener

While hawking a book the past couple weeks, Bobby Bowden has been lamenting how he was pushed out at Florida State after he’d repeatedly asked for “just one more year.”

(Post-Bowden crowds: It’s all about quality over quantity)

That was actually the thinking when Florida State originally scheduled Bowden alma mater Samford for its home opener this Saturday. But with no Bowden, FSU fans apparently aren’t too keen on the matchup.

Sales have been so slow that FSU is partnering with local motels in a ticket discount promotion to lure fans to the game.

Motel 6, Best Western and Red Roof Inn along with other local establishments are offering cut-rate FSU tickets to non-conference home games in exchange for an overnight stay.

Jenn Sterger Very Obsessed With Twitter, Herself

Jenn Sterger’s plans for world domination are proceeding smoothly, according to her. Over the weekend she attended an Indianapolis 500 party where she promoted a new sports drink, before that taking time to brag on an Indianapolis radio show about her proficiency with Twitter.

Jenn Sterger can write her name

Sterger, of course, is the former USF bandwagon hopper Florida State Cowgirl, former SPORTS ILLUSTRATED columnist, current New York Jets “Gameday” host, and future celebrity reality show contestant who rose to prominence after making several cameo appearances in Brent Musberger’s sexual fantasies in 2005. You may think that she’s dropped from the radar but you’d be wrong; the threat of a Sterger-dominated world is very real.

Jenn Sterger’s 15 Minutes Of Fame Are Not Up Yet

We’re in the middle of a compelling NFL playoffs. The Jets just fired their head coach, and the Giants are about to host a divisional rival with whom they split two regular season games in a fascinating matchup.

Sure, Sterger is the kind of personality who might warrant an offseason story in April, when nothing is going on. But in the middle of the playoffs, with the Jets embroiled in a coaching search that may cost a popular college coach his job, Brett Favre hanging on a retirement decision by a thread and the NFL Draft just months away? Come on.

That’s before you consider all the time off many workers are returning from, with the public finally attacking the news full bore again now that everyone’s back at work. Don’t worry, we’ve got more photos of “The best of Jenn Sterger” from THE DAILY NEWS after the break.
