NBC should not pat themselves on the back thinking that as long as the ratings are up things will be OK. The fact is that real-time communication will push networks to accept just-in-time delivery to be their main form of programming especially for sport events.
I've been appalled at the way in which NBC's Olympic coverage has become a celebration of parents crossing the line from healthy support of their children into a neurotic condition of living their lives through the experiences of their offspring.
It was always the memory of those athletes that helped me persevere through hard times and push past insurmountable obstacles -- and believe me, there were many. And ten years later, I was walking into my own Olympic Opening Ceremonies.
Today's show talks about Ryan Lochte, Missy Franklin winning a gold medal and NBC ruining the surprise, a couple new movie trailers, and some celebrity news as well.
Journalists will continue to speculate upon the back room dealings that went down between Twitter and NBC, but Adams doesn't regret his original action.
Enter Hoda Kotb and a new controversy that threatens to once again return NBC and its desperate inability to make a decision and stick with it back to their rightful place in the public eye. NBC says it's fully behind Savannah Guthrie. Uh-huh. I've heard that before.
You can imagine, NBC, that I've been looking forward to watching the Women's Team Finals with my own daughter for a long time. But then you ruined it, NBC. You ruined it.
After viewing the events on Sunday night, I don't think that the problem for NBC is that selected events are shown well after they take place. The problem, in my view, is that NBC appears to be selecting the wrong events for delayed broadcast at night.
I still believe that if NBC gave the fans what they wanted rather than trying to make them do what NBC thinks it wants, NBC could win by growing audience and engagement and thus better serving sponsors. I ask you to imagine what Olympics coverage would look like if Google had acquired the rights.
Romney has offered few specifics about what he would do to jump start the U.S. economy, and where he would cut the deficit. It's a secret, just like his taxes, his offshore accounts, his Olympic work, his term as governor and his time at Bain Capital.
I've slept on this issue for a week now and it's still bothering me: "Parks & Recreation" not earning an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy is atrocious. Yep, I'm throwing around strong words.
The recent news that MSNBC.com has become NBCNews.com is much more than a name change, it means that all the digital...
Ann Curry's half-Japanese background probably doesn't even register with most Today viewers. What a vast majority see is a talented journalist; a class act who doesn't have an easy, breezy morning show co-host personality.
While the Today Show's ratings declined during Curry's tenure, and Guthrie should be fine, it's still sad to see Curry go. It also strikes a blow against minority journalists, particularly Asians.
For CNN and Fox News, the race seems to be not who got it first, but who got it worst with the Supreme Court ruling.
Have your people contact my people and we'll set up a lunch. I'll buy, provided you're agreeable to Arby's or the Golden Corral.
