To say that the February sweeps were a disaster for NBC would be a gross understatement! NBC’s ratings were so piss-poor in the critical ratings measurement period that the network fell to fifth place among all the rated networks, and now even trails Univision of all things! Incredible, but true!
How did NBC achieve this awesome feat? Well, look at the miserable crap they serve up on Thursday nights for one example that the network attempts to pass off as comedy. Compared to real gems of the past such as SEINFELD, CHEERS or FRAZIER, this current wave of crap is pure dreck. And it will only likely get even worse when crap like THE OFFICE and 30 ROCK is replaced with even worse shows yet for next season. That’s something to look forward to, huh?
One new show that NBC had some high hopes for was DO NO HARM. But, the new show was so bad it only aired twice before it was canceled. That’s quite a feat right there!
NBC does have one bright spot, and that’s Jimmy Fallon. What a great talent he is. He’s super talented and has youngish good looks as well. He’s done wonders with Conan O’Brien’s old show time slot. That’s TV worth watching!
This is a network in serious need of some leadership, and, oh, some good shows as well…
