Giants Tagged for Showtime Reality Show 'The Franchise'




    Sports "television" has improved dramatically over the past few years, and Showtime's new reality show about the San Francisco Giants -- titled 'The Franchise' -- appears poised to add to a growing list of fantastic documentary coverage about athletics.
