God, I hate NBC. Hate hate hate. I like Bart Conner on WCSN.
NBC can't teach their people to pronounce names right, they talk over everything, and they just... ARGH! I also hate the distinct parochialism in covereage--women's TF, they showed the US and China. And one routine each from Romania and Russia.
Then they keep cutting in to show swimming. Not just finals, but heats. And look, we're all proud of Phelps. But Jesus Christ on a pogo stick, 7 minutes interviewing restauranteurs about his eating habits?! Earlier tonight, 15 minutes on Beijing cuisine? I can watch Anthony Bourdain for that.
NBC, you have what, five, six networks? SHOW. MORE. SPORTS. America can live without Law & Order for two frackin' weeks. And please, stream more coverage online. And stop restricting the stream to within the US.
I should say that programming-wise, NBC is my favorite network. They had the West Wing, and stuff.
