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

We’ve written about it more than once this season, but it bears repeating: does anyone want to play a competitive primetime football game at any point this season? 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’ […]

Epix, NHL will try out new platforms for ‘Road to the Winter Classic’

The National Hockey League chose to move on from HBO and 24/7 this season in favor of a new deal with Epix. 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 […]

Could the Buffalo Sabres be the next team to launch their own RSN?

The Buffalo Sabres are usually one of hockey television’s sure things. No matter how bad Buffalo’s hockey club has been — and it has been, no playoff appearances since 2011 and none on the horizon — they’ve been able to draw solid TV ratings for local MSG and national NBCSN. One of the great groan […]

Bob Cole, still doing it his way, baby

It is the the morning of a National Hockey League game at Madison Square Garden, and Bob Cole is very happy to be here. Not “happy to be alive” happy. He is “there is a hockey game tonight” happy. I realize this as he describes to me the process of talking to coaches before and after the morning […]
