LOS ANGELES, Nov. 8, 2018 - Tennis Channel will debut the original series The Tenon Sunday, Nov. 11, at 8 p.m. ET. The countdown show highlights a different debate-spurring list each week, and begins with The Ten: Men, an episode dedicated to ranking the 10 best men's tennis players of all time. The first season of The Ten will feature eight hour-long episodes with a new countdown for viewers to discuss and debate each week.
Jason Biggs (American Pie, Orange Is the New Black), will reveal The Ten lists over the course of the season as Tennis Channel ranks the sport's greatest, most exciting, and most controversial players and moments. The first season's lists will include, The Ten: Women, The Ten: Seasons, The Ten: Hotheads, The Ten: Upsets and The Ten: Rivalries. Where do John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors rank on the list of all-time hotheads? Does any rivalry beat Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova? Who had the greatest tennis year of all time? If Robin Soderling's 2009 defeat of four-time defending French Open champion Rafael Nadal is not the greatest upset in history, what is? Viewers can find previews and join the debate online at Tennis Channel's website, TENNIS.com, and on social media by using #TennisChannelTen. Full episodes will also be available on the network's app, as well as its digital subscription service Tennis Channel Plus.
"The Ten brings the never-ending debates from sports bars, tennis courts and living rooms to Tennis Channel," said John MacDonald, senior vice president, programming. "We're excited to give fans the opportunity to rank their favorites against Tennis Channel in this new multiplatform series.
