Debuting May 6, 2003 as Rome is Burning, it was originally a once a week show in primetime. After a short hiatus in 2004, it returned with a new name, and, starting in 2006, aired five days a week in the afternoon.
The show ended on January 27, 2012, with Rome's departure for the Columbia Broadcasting System, where he would host a new show on CBS Sports Network.
