REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL, TV’s most honored sports journalism series, continues its 20th season with more enterprising features and reporting when the show’s 205th edition debuts TUESDAY, APRIL 22 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

Segments include: 

NBA on TNT. It’s the most unpredictable, freewheeling and politically incorrect studio sports show on TV. The studio portion of “NBA on TNT” had its genesis in 2000 when the network landed former NBA star Charles Barkley, whose continued loyalty has enabled it to flourish. Ernie Johnson serves as the host and referee as analysts Barkley, Kenny “The Jet” Smith and Shaquille O’Neal debate sports, history, art and politics while reviewing the games at hand. It’s both the NBA’s longest-running coverage program, as well as TNT’s most-tenured show. REAL SPORTS correspondent Bernard Goldberg goes behind the scenes with the all-star crew at TNT’s Atlanta headquarters as the NBA playoffs approach.
