    Since their new midseason replacement dramas aren't ready to go, they're going to give us extended versions of Dateline NBC and Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday after football season.

    Just fuckin' wonderful, that.

    And you're putting Deal or No Deal on hiatus for this. God, NBC, this is pathetic. I know DoND isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I'll take an hour game show on Sundays over two hours of "you're fired".

    Karma for treating Scrubs like medical waste.

    Couldn't happen to a more deserving network.

    I watch a ton of TV. I don't think I watch anything on NBC.

    I download 30 Rock every week since it's on opposite Grey's and CSI, which we both Tivo.

    I was watching the Christian Slater show, but the bastards canceled it.

    Life is a good show. Other than that, NBC could fall down a bottomless pit.

    I watch four prime time shows on NBC, which include my three favorite shows -- Chuck, 30 Rock, The Office and Earl

    And lest we forget, they exiled Criminal Intent to USA.

    I've never understood Zucker's rise at NBC. Every rung he goes higher, the network's ratings sink a little lower. They haven't produced a top-10 scripted show in a good 10 years. I guess they were really counting on Rosie Live! Would have been a great lead-in to the Trump show as well as interesting scheduling. They already rushed Law and Order on the air after their Wednesday night programming collapsed. They'll bring on Friday Night Lights and give the fatties another run on Tuesdays.

    So let me see if I have this straight: NBC, the network with no midseason inventory, passed on the USA version of Top Gear which it ordered.

    The Stig laughs at NBC. You can't see it because he won't take his helmet off, but trust me --- The Stig laughs at this.
