I’ve tried to watch the Olympics. I really have.
I got through the opening ceremonies, only changing the channel back to Everybody Loves Raymond twice. (Yes, it’s on TV Land)
Even that was too long…….
I know, NBC, you paid $1.2 billion dollars for the rights to the broadcast, but 5 commercial breaks in the first five minutes of the opening ceremony. What a precedent to set!
The opening ceremonies were down by 30% . That’s massive. And you know who’s not watching…everyone..Not just women, not just men. Everyone.
Found a great article I want you to read… Definitely sums up the problems.
And it’s from the UK: CLICK HERE
Now I just feel , 9 days in, that the Olympics is too long. I’ve never felt like that before.
What a shame, NBC
And now for a commercial break…
