NBC Super Bowl ad sales face declining

Oh-oh. Here we are barely three weeks out from the Super Bowl and NBC has yet to sell all its ads. Same for the ensuing Winter Olympics. [Snip] It’s an immense economic gamble for NBC, which has committed to live-sports programming but now finds live-sports ratings tumbling for events like the National Football League and Olympics. NBC is paying $12 billion to those old guys on the Olympic Committee through 2032. But more trouble looms. First of all,

Keep up the pressure. Hit ´em where it hurts and make ´em feel the consequences.

Temptation to ´cheat´ is strong, but I will continue to boycott the playoffs and the "Big Game" itself.

$5 million for a 30 second spot. The big guys like Anheuser-Busch will be there. So will Coca-Cola. I doubt 70% of tv´s in use will be turned to the Super Bowl this year. It might finally sink into the NFL that people are fed up.

The NFL needs to kneel down and beg me to come back. Not sure if I will watch SB. I will probably tune in but if I see them showing players kneeling during the National Anthem, I´m switching to the latest episodes of Storage Wars or Pawn Stars, or whatever else happens to be on.

"Professional Football" I don´t think so! They are nothing more than a bunch of self-absorbed, dependent clowns..Demonstrating their disrespect of those who have brought to them a way to make money and live a life of an American Dream...For which they have disrespected it all; for their own publicity...I say let them go broke, and have a need to sell pencils outside their empty stadiums...

I love to watch the Olympic events. Unfortunately, it’s no longer about the events. Since the talking heads took over, it’s not worth my time. I got tired of yelling “shut up and show the events” to the TV screen. At one time, I lived near the Canadian border and we got the Olympics on Canadian TV. We actually got to watch the events! That’s when I learned about that great sport “Curling”! Those were the days. Sigh.

As long as athletes keep dragging their left-wing politics into the public square, expect fewer and fewer viewers.

That idiot skier cost the winter Olympics a bunch of viewers.

Kneeling NFL players cost them a lot of viewers and hurt their advertisers.

As long as you are in the public eye in a field where all your fans do not share your personal political, moral, etc, views, then realize that you are paid big money to entertain and keep your mouth shut on the controversial stuff!!!

In other words SHUT UP and sing/run/pass/play/dunk/etc/etc/etc...

Did you notice these particular audience

President Trump’s raucous rally in Montana last week drew a big crowd and national media coverage. Additionally, as we wrote here, it provided insights into the president’s campaign strategy for the next 17 weeks leading up to the midterm elections. Now, it turns out, the rally in Great Falls also created what one Montana newspaper is calling “a firestorm” of controversy on social media over four specific members of the audience. They were priests, wearing clerical dress, carrying Trump signs and seated near the front. The men were also wearing VIP badges. Such things at presidential events overseen by the

Every U.S. president for the past quarter-century has thought he could improve relations with Russia. Two factors have been consistent in those efforts: Their utter failures and, more recently, the powerful presence of ex-KGB officer Vladimir Putin, now president again. Despite a range of rather rigorous economic sanctions by Presidents Obama and Trump, the canny and ruthless Putin has: [Snip] Now comes Putin’s first formal summit meeting with President Trump next week in Finland.

This could prove to be a bigger deal than anyone realized over this past summer weekend. Much bigger. On Saturday in the city of light, scientists announced that their trial AIDS vaccine actually triggered an immune response in humans and also prevented infection in monkeys. The test results so far are encouraging and perhaps even exciting. But the team warned there are no guarantees it will work during the next experimental phase, testing it on 2,600 women in southern Africa to see if it prevents HIV infection. “This,” said study leader Dan Barouch of Harvard Medical School, “is only the fifth

Let’s start from the premise that California has way too many people anyway — 39.8 million at last count. [Snip] But government and taxes are not among California’s attributes. So back in 2012 at the urgent suggestion of Gov. Jerry Brown, who painted all kinds of dire consequences if his favorite measure failed, California’s rote voters approved Proposition 30. It was the best kind of huge tax increase because it was on somebody else, those somebody else´s who make a lot of money. California’s top three percent of earners were to shell out a major part of the $9 billion in

According to ads for airline travel, there’s a lot of smiling, dancing and conviviality these days aboard commercial flights over the United States. Anyone who’s flown in recent years knows how true that is. A main issue for air travel discomfort is the seats, which are crammed in closer and closer together to maximize revenue. One theory is this strategy is designed to encourage people to pay more for the seat rows with room to move a leg and breathe. There’s been so much concern over the shrinking seats and expanding bodies that a group called Flyers Rights sued the

This is actually a good news story, but only if you’re a law-abiding, taxpaying American citizen. If, however, you’re among more than a third of a million Americans in a tax delinquent category, well, then this is not a good news story. It seems Congress passed a law three years ago requiring the Internal Revenue Service to cull out Americans who have more than $51,000 in overdue back-tax debts. Then, the IRS sends those names in batches over to the State Department where they file the names to deny those folks new passports or passport renewals. Eventually, they may be

Americans, it seems, are growing increasingly dubious, skeptical, even cynical about many of their once-hallowed institutions. These include especially Congress. But any such disapproval list also contains TV news, newspapers, unions, public schools and even the criminal justice system. Only two institutions — the military and small business — hold an overwhelming net positive opinion in the minds of Americans. The volunteer military has by far the most public confidence — 94 percent with a great deal or some confidence in it. Only five percent have none, according to a new Gallup phone survey of 1,520 adult Americans..

About that June jobs report:

A couple of additions to the predictably comprehensive monthly jobs report by our colleague Ed Morrissey. As he reported here, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said June jobs grew by an unexpectedly large 213,000. Market and workforce experts had been predicting just under 200,000. That’s all good. That put the number of employed Americans at 155,576,000, the tenth record month in the 17-month-old Trump presidency. [Snip] But wait! There’s more. Remember candidate Trump suggesting Hispanics and blacks vote for him because Democrats had never delivered and they had nothing to lose? During the month of June, a record

While Moms cleared the lunch dishes, the little girls in their party dresses and Mary Janes arranged the gifts for formal presentation to the day’s birthday girl. “Where did the boys go?” asked the Moms. “They went outside.” The Moms looked through the window. Sure enough, the carefully-dressed little boys were outside all right — having hose fights in the mud. True, there are such special messy moments in the lives of raising boys.

Hillary Clinton had strong words for the Trump administration and Republicans on Friday while addressing the American Federation of Teachers, saying the fundamental rights of Americans are what’s at stake this November. Speaking at the labor union’s conference in Pittsburgh, Mrs. Clinton slammed the administration’s separations of families at the border as inhumane and indecent. “I believe with all my heart that the test of any society is how we treat the most vulnerable among us, particularly our youngest, our oldest, our people with disabilities, and right now, my friends, our country is failing that test,” she said. “We have

Fox News host Dana Perino on Thursday night called for congressional hearings to be taken off-camera following a wild hearing with FBI agent Peter Strzok earlier in the day. Perino slammed Democrats for an "outrageous" suggestion Strzok deserved a Purple Heart and scolded Republicans for "overboard" questions that "felt like a public lynching" during Strzok´s testimony to the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform committees. The comments from the former George W. Bush press secretary came after Strzok´s testimony dominated headlines and broadcast news on Thursday.

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

The indictment Friday of 12 Russian military officers for the election hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lends a surprising new detail to the 2016 election interference timeline: The Kremlin’s hackers apparently still maintained a foothold in the DNC’s network four months after the Democrats announced that they’d locked the intruders out. Until today, the story of the DNC hack ended promptly on June 14, 2016, when the Democrats went public with the intrusion in the pages of the Washington Post, and Crowdstrike, the security firm hired to respond to the breach, published a detailed technical account. Today’s indictment confirms

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is.

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.
