Meh. Kornheiser is entertaining and funny, which is a heck of a lot more than I can say for Theismann.
Are there kinks that need to be worked out? Sure. But it was Kornheiser’s first ever game in the booth, which a lot of people seemed to forget when they immediately dismissed him.
And just because he’s self-depreciating doesn’t mean he really only knows 8 NFL players or anything like that. Sure, he doesn’t add much technically, but he still knows football and he’s fun to listen to.
