I didn't realize (since I haven't been watching) until I saw some on-line comment that NBC had their "Green Week" again this year, which really turned me off last year. Get rid of the finger-wagging know-it-alls behind Green Week and those "The More You Know" promos on how to raise families.

You have to go higher and dump Jeffery Imhelt out of his top spot in GE. In this case, the rot starts right up at the top of the tree and continues down to NBC and MSNBC news which are basically just Goebels style propaganda outlets for the DNC.

It's all about the content.

NBC has little of it. And what they have does not a network make!

Their local affiliates aren't any better since none of them seem capable of generating show ideas.

Bill O'Reilly will have a ball with this on Monday night. They need to get rid of the head of General Electric and the head honcho of NBC.

NBC SNF ratings are doing well, when Vince puts his WWE on NBC that does well too--Hockey too--I think maybe they should look more into sports and entertainment, maybe gameshows as well---i never watch NBC unless there is sports on--
