Alex Rodriguez And Bobby Knight Top The Guest List For Joe Buck’s ‘Undeniable’


Joe Buck‘s interview show is back for a fourth season and the guest list looks to have plenty to say. Buck’s Undeniable had s an impressive list of guests lined up that run the sports gamut from former baseball players to tennis and NASCAR legends. It even features one of the most controversial college basketball coaches in history.

Perhaps the biggest name on the list is Alex Rodriguez, the former infielder who notoriously was caught and apologized for taking steroids in the aughts. Rodrigiez’ career officially ended last season and he’s changed his public perception considerably since then.

In the show’s trailer, however, it’s clear that Buck and Rodriguez address his steroid story and the impact it had on him personally.

“There’s no way that you and I are going to sit out here and I’m not going to ask you about the steroid scandal,” Buck asks.

It appears to be an interesting conversation starter.

“I’m the only jackass that has pocket aces and figures out a way to lose the hand.” Rodriguez says in the trailer. “It was hard for me to live with myself.”

Buck’s interest in baseball is clear, as he also has pitcher John Smoltz and iron man Cal Ripkin Jr. on the show this season as well.

Here’s the full list of guests for the show’s fourth season:

Alex Rodriguez – Oct. 18
John Smoltz – Oct. 25
Martina Navratilova – Nov. 1
Bobby Knight – Nov. 8
Cal Ripken Jr. – Nov. 15
Matt Hughes – Nov. 22
Ronnie Lott – Nov. 29
David Robinson – Dec. 6
Brett Hull – Dec. 13
Jeff Gordon – Dec. 20

All of the guests are former athletes who have had fascinating careers, and it will be interesting to see just what topics Buck gets into with each of them. Will he, for example, broach the subject of Knight’s alleged groping incident at an American intelligence agency. Undeniable airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on DIRECTV’s channel 239 and can be streamed on the network’s apps through the AT&T audience network.
