Bill Simmons, formerly of ESPN fame, won't start TV work on HBO until early 2016. But Simmons' popular podcast, The BS Report, will return (under a new name) on Thursday, Oct. 1.

"FYI: my podcast returns on October 1st. New name, new sponsors," Simmons tweeted out on Aug. 24.

The return of the podcast will coincide with the start of the MLB playoffs - which no doubt means Jack-O will be weighing in on the Yankees' playoff chances - and the second month of NFL action - which no doubt means Simmons and Cousin Sal Iacono will be guessing the Week 4 betting lines.


Simmons has actually been keeping his fanbase up to date on this season's betting line contest with Iacono through his Instagram.
