McAfee then followed all of that with another episode on Friday and will be back at it on Monday afternoon and every week day from then on.
One important reminder for longtime McAfee fans is the show will be aired on a delay to manage the cursing. ESPN is owned by Disney, so McAfee and his crew will have to calm it down with the laid-back profanity everyone enjoys. McAfee has mentioned that he will try to cut down on the f-bombs but doesn’t want to get rid of it completely. There’s an alternative way to watch the Pat McAfee Show uncensored on YouTube.
