Suck It NBC

I'm not a fan of NBC. I know, it's crazy to not like the people who brought us Knight Rider 2008, My Own Worst Enemy, The Bionic Woman and prime time Leno. It shocks me just to write that sentence.

The good news is NBC is taking a hit on the Super Bowl.

A week before Super Bowl XLIII, NBC is still in “active negotiations” to sell its last few commercial spots.

That’s why some advertising wags are calling Super Bowl 2009 the Economy Bowl.

This close to game time, it’s unusual to have any of the 67 time slots unsold.

The network, which will show next Sunday’s game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers, had no trouble getting takers for its record-high $3 million-per-half-minute spots — before Labor Day.

After that, sales fizzled along with the economy.

Fuck 'em.
