Report: NHL And NBC Feuding Over Just The Dumbest Thing

A sports media spat so petty, so spiteful, so focused on squeezing as much free shit out of a corporate partner as possible, it could only have involved the NHL. » 2/04/15 12:59pm 2/04/15 12:59pm

NBC Director Cut Away From Ball-Pooping Celebration To Protect Us

On Sunday, Doug Baldwin celebrated his touchdown to put the Seahawks up 24-14 by pooping the football. (Seattle never scored again. Curse of the poopball? Hmmmm.) Only, the dozens of millions of people watching at home never saw it, because NBC abruptly cut away. » 2/03/15 1:50pm 2/03/15 1:50pm

Isolated, Unedited Vocals Of Mariah Carey's Awful Holiday Performance

Remember when Mariah Carey could sing? Most millennials probably can't. "All I Want For Christmas Is You," she sings, but we'd suggest adding "a new voice" to her letter for Santa. Only Rep. Peter King could vocalize something more tone-deaf in New York today. » 12/03/14 10:46pm 12/03/14 10:46pm

Everything You Need to Have Seen From Last Night's Emmys

Did you watch the Emmys last night? No? Good for you! They were kind of boring. And weird. Breaking Bad cleaned up for its final season and most of the shows you wanted to win (Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, True Detective) were shut out. Here's everything you missed: » 8/26/14 2:38am 8/26/14 2:38am

Report: Bob Costas' Olympic Eye Infection Was From Botched Botox

If you were a TV host with a huge gig on the horizon — the ding dang Olympics — you might make an appointment to get a little freshen up with the cosmetic surgeon. Who could blame you? You want to look your best when the whole world is watching. But what if something went wrong and your eyes got red and your vision… » 3/07/14 11:18am 3/07/14 11:18am

NBC Edited Out 38% Of The Closing Ceremony. Here's What You Missed.

It's no secret NBC makes significant edits to its tape-delayed broadcasts of Olympic ceremonies. We've never seen them leave out as much as they did last night, though, in excising more than 50 minutes from an already brisk Sochi closing ceremony; that left U.S. viewers seeing less than 62% of the event. We tracked… » 2/24/14 8:45am 2/24/14 8:45am

NBC is offering a stream starting at 11:00 EST. If your television provider doesn't play nice with Comcast, though, you might need some other options. For… » 2/23/14 10:28am 2/23/14 10:28am

NBC Ad Interruption Almost Ruins Gold Medal Winner's Watch Party

Mikaela Shiffrin kept her nerve and won gold in ladies' slalom, but the same can't quite be said for her family members watching at home here in the U.S. As we noted in that piece, NBC Live Extra put up an ad that covered up the first part of her run; that ad affected everyone, and it's no surprise people with an… » 2/23/14 9:00am 2/23/14 9:00am

Matt Lauer Asks Bob Costas If He'll Be Taking The Red-Eye Flight Home

Bob Costas joined Matt Lauer on The Today Show this morning to discuss the buzz in Sochi and at the end of the segment, Lauer casually asked Costas how much longer he was staying in town. Lauer waited for the response and then pounced all over him. » 2/21/14 9:17am 2/21/14 9:17am

Japanese Skier Breaks Arm In Crash; NBC Video Says He "Lands Safely"

Japanese skier Taihei Kato suffered a broken arm on a run in the Nordic combined large hill event earlier today when he lost his balance after landing, hitting the ground hard. NBC's packaging of the highlight makes it sound less painful than it was. » 2/18/14 8:13pm 2/18/14 8:13pm

Jimmy Fallon's First-Ever Tonight Show Features Legendary Cameo Segment

We couldn't possibly run down all the dignitaries who appear in this bit, from tonight's first episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
