ESPN to put Barry Bonds' 'Bond on Bonds' reality show on hiatus


UPI News Service, 05/25/2006 

Barry Bonds has lost his TV show for now, largely because, surprising as it sounds, he's reportedly not hitting enough home runs.

"Bonds on Bonds," the ESPN reality series featuring the San Francisco Giants slugger, will go on hiatus after two more shows, and is unlikely to return on a regular basis, the Los Angeles Times said Thursday.

Bonds tied Babe Ruth for No. 2 on the all-time home run list at 714 last week, but has hit just six homers this year and Hank Aaron's record 755 is a long way off.

Meanwhile, St. Louis slugger Albert Pujols has hit 23 home runs.

"If Barry was hitting home runs at Albert Pujols' pace, we would continue," producer Mike Tollin said.

The series, which began airing April 4, was scheduled to air Thursday at 4 p.m. in its regular half-hour format. There will be a one-hour wrap-up show Monday at 4 p.m., and that's it, at least for now.
