A whole new ballgame
ESPN is launching its new streaming service with “The Last Days of Knight,” a documentary that’s less about Indiana basketball coach Bobby Knight and more about CNN producer Robert Abbott bragging about how he helped bring Knight down. Still, watching Knight belittle anyone who gets in his way will make your jaw drop. The film is not scheduled to air on regular television anytime soon, a decision that may cause some sports fans to hurl a chair.

Bring it on!
If watching old favorites on “Trading Spaces” doesn’t earn you enough pop-culture points, upgrade to the new series “All-Star Flip.” Gabrielle Union (“Bring It On”) and NBA star Dwyane Wade renovate a Miami house, with the profits going to charity. The only thing that would make this sweeter is if Union ends up accusing rival designer Kirsten Dunst of stealing her ideas.

Hello, old friend
Those who’ve seen Al Pacino’s new HBO film, “Paterno,” might be taken aback by how few lines the actor gets to say. Never fear; Tony Montana is still here. 1983’s “Scarface” has Pacino delivering a barrage of dialogue, most of which is unspeakable within four miles of an elementary school. The cult hit was directed by Brian De Palma, who was originally slated to direct “Paterno” until Barry Levinson stepped in.
