Thursday Night Football

Every network wants a piece of Thursday Night Football

There’s been much spoken about the union of CBS and NFL Network to broadcast Thursday Night Football this season. You’ve seen complaints about the quality of games on an almost weekly basis, even though that problem has plagued NBC’s Sunday Night Football just as badly, if not worse. That said, CBS got the desired effect from televising the games, increasing […]

Jamie Horowitz’s Today Show tenure reportedly devolved into absolute chaos

The fallout continues over the firing of former ESPN producer Jamie Horowitz from The Today Show, in what is becoming one of the more bizarre stories of the year.

‘Sunday Night Football’ only down two percent despite bad games

CBS/NFL Net’s Thursday Night Football initially got a lot of the heat, but as we’ve discovered, NBC’s Sunday Night Football has been just as prone to this problem. Following the Packers’ […]

The premium network — mostly famous for standup comedy and reruns of movies, but with a burgeoning sports documentary unit — is not subscribed to by nearly as many homes as HBO. That created a […]

NBA signs exclusive deal with FanDuel

Fantasy sports have been getting quite a moment in the past little while, despite mainstream media remaining a little reticent. I highly recommend this piece master and commander of Bloguin Ben Koo did on the subject a couple of months ago. It’s still relevant and still worth a read. It’s particularly significant with some news […]

NHL: Buffalo Sabres at St. Louis Blues

How NBCSN can replace every Buffalo Sabres game left on their schedule

The Buffalo Sabres are an awful hockey team. They stand at 3-12-2 just 17 games into the 2013-14 NHL regular season. That’s worst in the league, currently setting them up with the best chance at picking first overall in a loaded 2015 NHL Draft. There’s certainly hope for the future, but none of it should […]
