Low scores for NBC – It seems NBC’s taped coverage of the Sydney games is a bit of a tough sell. So far NBC has averaged a 14.3 Nielsen rating for its prime-time coverage, a lower rating than any other Olympics on record. Apparently everybody’s just flocking to the internet for the information they want, when they want it. Those stupid bastards – how could they ever expect everybody to just wait for them… the internet is real and it’s here and people don’t take kindly to big networks force-feeding them time-delayed crap coverage. Now, in order to make good on its $700 million investment, NBC will likely be adding extra commercials to its broadcast… way to go – send the rest of your viewers to the net! And they’re sticking to their guns on the issue too: “We are going to keep our original plan of carrying it all on tape, because there are several complications as to why it makes it difficult to try and air some stuff live and some on tape,” according to Camryn Blanchard, a spokeswoman for NBC. Wow, thanks for enlightening us, Camryn.
