The new programming lineup this year will feature the debut of the “Joe Judge Report,” which will give fans with tremendous insight into the coaching philosophy of the team’s new Head Coach. Hosted by Bob Papa, the show will feature Judge using the telestrator and providing viewers with unique, in-depth analysis of the team.

The show will air during the season on Tuesday at 7:30pm ET after games on Sunday and on Wednesday nights following games played on Monday.

To kick-off the season, MSG Networks will air “Giants First and 10, presented Stop & Shop” at 8:00pm ET tonight, a one-hour preview show hosted by Bob Papa and Carl Banks. Airing every Friday night, the show will feature reporting from Madelyn Burke and Paul Dottino and a panel of Giants experts including Howard Cross, Victor Cruz, David Diehl and Shaun O’Hara breaking down the team’s upcoming matchup with ten ‘must know’ topics. Each week, the show will also profile a key player or moment from the Giants’ 1990 Super Bowl championship season, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the team’s Super Bowl XXV win over the Buffalo Bills.
Starting this Sunday at 10:30am ET, the weekly programming will also include “Giants Chronicles, presented by Hackensack Meridian Health,” an award-winning documentary series that will give fans a great look back every Sunday morning at the classic games, moments and players from that storied 1990 championship season.
