Norm Macdonald is game for crashing NBA playoffs

The zillions of dollars required for TV networks to license rights to major-league sports isn’t going to keep Comedy Central from horning in on the action. 600_ap_norrm_110209 “Sports Show with Norm Macdonald,” its “Daily Show”-esque take on pro athletics, has spawned a novel spin-off of sorts to putting its stamp on big games even outside of its Tuesday 10:30 p.m. time slot.

Comedy Central has launched “NormCast,” a live audio stream of Macdonald cracking wise as he watches the same game you’re watching on the TV set. The first “Normcast” covered the final round of the Masters golf tournament last week and Macdonald is coming back for more on Sunday for Game 1 of the Lakers-Hornets NBA playoffs.

“Normcast” can be streamed over the Web or via mobile app, whether Apple or Android. Check out Macdonald’s Comedy Central website for more information.
