Peyton Manning’s forehead mark, which can be clearly seen whenever he takes off his helmet after Broncos games, will now be getting its own weekly half-hour variety show on NBC.
The gigantic red forehead spot, which is clearly visible every time Manning is on the sideline, will debut its new show following “Modern Family” on Thursday nights.
The new series, entitled “Forehead of the Class,” will debut during sweeps week. In the meantime, Manning’s red spot will be seen on the NFL Network doing pregame before the 49ers-Panthers game this weekend. Also, the mark will co-host Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel for the next month, and do the birthday announcements for Channel 7 Action News in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Although Manning’s forehead mark was unavailable for comment, his publicist noted that the red mark’s new critically-acclaimed show will be a mixture of comedy, politics, music and passing-pocket techniques. Guests scheduled for the first episode include baseball legend Johnny Bench, economist Paul Krugman, and President Obama. Unconfirmed reports continue to circulate that Manning’s forehead mark had reached out to Cooper Manning to explain the exciting world of energy stock trading.
