I would like to see them spend some camera time back at the hotel, motor home, or wherever the bowlers are staying to give viewers a glimpse of life on the road for the professional bowler, and to get to know each of the bowlers a little better.

i liked it, and i liked seeing alot of different bowlers in one program. They did a good job of editing it so you felt the drama unfolding.

not to mention bowling hotties escorting them in the final match lol.

I loved it. If all the shows were of this caliber it would be great. I'm not saying they should all be reality, I'm saying a mix of this type and the traditional type but all of the good quality of this past weekend's show. It was well edited, had good content and engaged me thoroughly.

If it was a 30 minute segment before the step ladder finals, I would of thought it was great! But for it to replace the normal format all together, I thought it was a bad idea. If that's the future of the TV broadcast, I won't be watching!

In addition to this, I'd like to see how the Pros prepare for a match. Do they touch up their balls? Clean their shoes? Change the soles? Exercise?

Do they scuff the balls? modify them in some way? polish them? What surfaces do they prefer on what type of conditions? This would be educational and beneficial.

Ah, yes. That brings up a whole other area of interest. How about the interaction between the bowlers, their ball reps, and "the truck"? I would love to overhear some of those conversations.

He didn't get hosed. He knew the format going into the tournament and chose to compete under those conditions. It's no different than me going into a handicap tournament with only 5 pins per game and complaining when someone with 40 pins handicap beats me. If he didn't want to compete under those conditions then he shouldn't have participated.

BTW, I absolutely loved the format. I completely agree that if they did, say, a 20 minute segment prior to each finals, each week showing some different aspect of the bowling week, a highlight or feature or something like that to give people more a sense of what life is like for the pros, it would really boost things tremendously.

What I really loved was getting inside the heads just a bit of players like Duke and Barnes. Loved Barnes' comment "If you can beat someone else by doing what they do best, that sends a message." I love competitors like that, and want to see more of it.

I love watching Bowling on TV. This format really drew me in and was definitely suspenseful. Norm is a genius. He lifted his own game and established mental dominance over his opponent..., with a laugh and a smile.

I enjoyed the new format. Liked seeing the behind the scenes action and hope to see more of the young lefty in upcoming telecasts. My two cents.
