Sports Shows That Aren't Really About Sports At All

List Rules

Vote up the best “sports shows” that focus far more on things that are not, in fact, a sport.

Sports can naturally provide some of the biggest drama of anything on TV, and the best sports shows on TV tend to simply focus on actual sports. But not everyone can get invested into a (or any) sport. Fortunately, plenty of shows that showcase fictional versions of some great sports stories, while also being about sports so lightly that people who don't care for the real thing can find themselves heavily invested in the outcome of a football game or boxing match that never actually happened. 

 

These are the best sports shows that might as well not even be about sports at all, so vote up the TV shows that are ostensibly “about” sports but are really about just about people.
