The Big Bang Theory is over before the NFL starts.
The Voice on Thursday is a repeat.
FS1 drew 1.77 million for Oregon/Washington.
"which usually maxes out at around two million viewers" That's just plain wrong. Only 1 game has done UNDER 2 million on Thursday night. South Carolina on opening night did 3.6 million. http://www.sportsmediawatch.com/college-football-tv-ratings/
Does no one at this site have access to Google anymore? The quality across the board has fallen off a cliff in the last month.
I used to complain when all this site did was link to other articles, but at least that's better than factually incorrect drivel.

How is NFL Redzone a great moment for the NFL Network? And who ever considered them "dominant" during the lockout??
These aren't even moments. You basically just listed every event or show they have.
Moments are things like the 2007 game between the Packers & Cowboys. Or the Pats going for 16-0 w/ a simulcast on broadcast tv. Or the Saints/Cowboys game on a Saturday night.
I just did that off of my head in 5 seconds. Do you guys even try on this site anymore? Or have you thrown in the towel on effort and just creating linkbait??

Cal Ripken was brutal as an analyst. No need for him there. 3-man booths in baseball are terrible and it took away from Darling, who is the best. Most of what Ripken said was just agreeing with Darling. Totally pointless.
The crowd shots are the worst.
1 month ago on The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of the 2013 MLB Playoffs on TV
It becomes more and more pointless to compare ratings (for anything) to past years. The fact is, the game beat everything else on TV last night and crushed anything else Fox airs, save for the NFL & American Idol.
2 weeks ago, the ALCS crushed NASCAR's playoffs. Last week, it crushed Clemson/Florida State & all other college football. Baseball is fine.

How are they first?? Aren't they just doing what everyone else started to do the past couple of years??
If anything, NOT being opened made Macy's stand out and that was something to run on.
Those few hours on Thanksgiving are not (and should not) define a quarter for a company. If it does, then Macy's has been doing it all wrong anyway.
You need to dominate, period. Not dominate a few hours on a Holiday night that other companies have already staked out. Focus on what you do well and own that.

I wrote last year that the NFL should move the package to Tuesday Nights. And I still believe that. The Thursday night thing aint working.
Here's my piece on it: http://stholeary.blogspot.com/2012/11/TuesdayNightFootball.html

"Sometimes, I wonder how certain columns get published."
Probably because they know sites like these will link to it. Mission accomplished. Page views.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Phil Mushnick wrote the most offensive sports column in the history of Earth
The segment with Goodell avoiding answers in Congress was incredible...I forgot that happened. It got nowhere near the publicity of the MLB players doing the same about steroids, probably because it was players and not a figurehead.
But the look on Goodell's face when the league is compared to Big Tobacco is priceless.
And for me, one of the powerful moments came toward the end when one of the reporters (forget which one) shares how the NFL has backed off of admitting any correlation between football & concussions. That part was scary to me - as if they think with the settlement and new rules, that they're in the clear.

The obsession with ESPN not covering the NHL is mind-boggling. Who cares?
NBCSN is almost literally nonstop hockey coverage. If you want to watch hockey coverage, CHANGE THE CHANNEL!
2 months ago on Did Fox Sports Live really show more hockey than SportsCenter?
I would bet that they wanted to reassign Reid, he refused and they canned him. His mistake happened last weekend so it's not like they fired him just for that. It's also possible he quit after being told of the reassignment.
Now if Fox would only do the same to Dick Stockton...

"the two would not recreate the magic of the original SportsNation"
When did this revisionist history start with that show? THAT SHOW SUCKED. There was no magic between her and Colin. It was a bad show. No one watched. PTI is magic. SportsNation is not.
Beadle is the same as Erin Andrews (cheap plug: http://stholeary.blogspot.com/2013/07/substance-trumps-style-erin-andrews.html)
They are both where they are due to people finding them attractive.
For Erin Andrews, all men find her attractive, so she gets a big role on Fox.
For Michelle Beadle, only sports bloggers find her attractive, so she gets canned from a show that drew 30k viewers.
The only thing more annoying than the bloggers' love affair with Beadle is my inability to stop clicking on these links that anger me! arrrgggghhhh
2 months, 1 week ago on The Crossover was doomed from the start
I don't know if the day your show gets canned for drawing a daily audience roughly the size of Madison Square Garden is a good time to be hurling barbs.
2 months, 1 week ago on The Crossover Explodes!!!
@ChrisPress How? Their EPL coverage is outstanding and doing better ratings then a year ago. The NHL set records all last year. They're going to have NASCAR soon. They do a bangup job with horse racing.
So they cancelled a show that no one watched. Who cares?
2 months, 1 week ago on NBCSN cancels Michelle Beadle's show The Crossover
@GTown_Dave What are you talking about? Just because you find her hot, no one was watching her show. She's been all over NBC's coverage for big events - they'll find something for her.
The Crossover format was doomed from the start. No one , and I mean NO ONE, wants to see a show like that. SportsNation is floundering, Crowd Goes Wild is nothing and the LeadOff on CBSSN is equally bad.
"Olbermann’s work in his return to ESPN has been fantastic"

These are supposed to be stupid on purpose, right? Ive never given more than 2 seconds of thoughts to these until right now...I always thought it was a joke on purpose. I don't know how these would elicit anything other than a laugh.
And I can tell you, that I was very unsober for Washington St/USC and that Keys to the Game made me LOL. Can't lie.
2 months, 1 week ago on Fox's keys to the game are befuddling
"Their overall package is still better than NBCSN"
I would argue with this. NBCSN's 2 months of playoff hockey is better than anything Fox Sports 1 is going to deliver. For both networks, the biggest draw will be NASCAR. And over the winter, I'd take the NHL over the "new" Big East 8 days a week in terms of ratings.
NBCSN's EPL ratings have been equal, if not better, than Fox Sports 1's college football slate so far. They should concentrate on being #2 before they can be #1.
