Spanish-language behemoth
Univisión bests NBC in
hunt for sweeps ratings as
struggling ´Peacock Network´
hits bottom for first time ever

New York Daily News, by Gina Salomone

NBC is set to finish fifth for the first time ever in one of television’s all-important sweeps months — bested even by Spanish-language Univisión. It’s a dramatic drop for the network, which came out on top both in last February’s sweeps and in the last round of ratings wars in November.But without its fall anchors, “Sunday Night Football” and “The Voice,” NBC was left with new shows that flopped — “1600 Penn,” “Do No Harm” and a much-promoted new season of “Smash” that has so far failed to click with viewers.

On the one hand, people don´t watch Tv stations they watch Tv shows, so the NBC brand shouldn´t really be a factor. On the other hand, to the extent that brand plays a factor, they´ve probably done damage to their brand with a healthy percentage of the population due to their biased news division. I know I fly be them as fast as I can when surfing.

Of course sucky shows don´t help. Haven´t watched so couldn´t tell ya. I guess 1600 Penn is some sort of whitehouse sitcom? Can´t wait to miss that again.

They better start forcing Univision to feature shows with fun homosexuals before its too late. They also better make Government school force all the kids to watch NBC´s "The New Normal".

#1, David Axelrod already is on the funniest show on television....Morning Joe.

How many regular Americans are refusing to watch any NBC shows? They spend the entirety of 2012 openly calling half of America racist. But no article I have seen has mentioned that this might be a factor.

And let us not forget that Brian Williams is THE decision maker as to what goes into (or is ignored by) NBC Nightly News and that Rock show they are trying to save. NBC is the network that totally ignored the U.S. gun running on the border and death of our agent, and when indictments came (and what every happened there?) had to scramble to explain what was going on as they had never mentioned Troopergate. I suspect what has happened with NBC is that loyal viewers just don´t trust the Net anymore and are not turning it on, whereas Univision still has viewers who believe in it. We constantly hear that Chrissie Matthews is an embarrassment, but Williams is actually more so, as he is not a newsman but plays one on t.v.

I don´t watch any of the networks at all. The one exception is "Bluebloods" on CBS. And thats only because the openly conservative Tom Selek is the star and its the one entertainment program that isn´t a disguised liberal agenda program. Other than that, I get my unbiased news from FOX and FOX Business with an occasional trip to C-SPAN. There is infinitely more entertaining shows on the various cable stations, so I don´t have to watch or listen to progressive brainwashing and dumbing down of the population. NBC deserves what it is getting. God knows it has worked hard to attain it. I only hope that ABC and CBS follow suit.

Sorry for the double post. Brian Williams is the face of NBC. Is it just a teensy bit possible that ordinary Amuricans are creeped out by his repeated proclamations on late night that he watches his daughter´s sex scenes on the HBO show, Girls? It´s creepy.

Ratings collapse at NBC is legacy of the character George on this net´s last hit, Seinfeld. During Jerry and George´s interview with NBC executives on proposed pilot, George pitched his "show about nothing". When asked by faux NBC president why anyone would watch such a show, George responded, "Because it´s on TV!"

Like the consistent loser, George Costanza, NBC proceeded to produce a lot of shows about nothing. Perhaps NBC can sign Hillary for a dramatic series, State of Affairs. Or, Hillary, Obama, John Brennan and Susan Rice for Benghazi!, an action series about a special WH team that produces fake cover stories to hide failures. Or, Drone, where audience would watch 1 hour shows of Obama´s speeches.

Actually "1600 Penn" is not a bad show. The President is a Republican and the way the left is portrayed (moonbats) is more accurately portrayed than one would think for a msm show. Not a bad show at all.

I find this to be as amusing as when I found out that RuPaul´s show on LOGO beat out Piers Morgan´s show on CNN by at least 100,000 viewers. NBC hasn´t been on top since the Cosby show and Night Court were on the air on Thursdays. (must see tv!)

I watched about 15 minutes of 1600 Penn and as usual it had smart mouth kids delivering lines only a 20 year old could come up with,the usual angry disrespectful teenager and an older son who´s role was that of a brain dead misfit. Their parents don´t deserve to run a truck stop much less a country. Actually same kids that show up in most sitcoms-no wonder no one watches.

´1600 Penn´ only took ten minutes of watching to be rejected.

´Do No Harm´ was odd and improbable. CBS has better shows. ´The Odd Wife´ is very interesting, but I get tired of the liberal preaching on all of them.

There has been a quiet boycott of this network and to some extent, all three of the regular networks. Like people voting with their feet, we have been voting with our remotes. So many of the sitcoms these days are insulting to ones intelligence. They make dad look stupid and he is often disrespected. I often wonder if that´s the way they see the lives of "the regular people". There are way too many other options out there these days for them to be offering the garbage they offer and expect us not to change the channel. When you doctor the news to fit your narrative, why are you surprised when we don´t watch the network as a whole?

When a video of high school student Jeff Bliss calling out his teacher went viral, a lot of people started talking about the state of our education system and ways to improve it.

It´s not just carriage horse drivers saying neigh to plans for vintage cars tooling around Central Park. The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars. Doug Blonsky, the conservancy’s president & CEO, told the Daily News that introducing the electric vehicles to the park would be a bad idea. “Forty million people visit Central Park each year, including runners, bicyclists, kids and dog owners,” Blonsky said Wednesday. “Adding vehicles to the mix will make the

Shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, a 19-year-old in a hoodie and baggy jeans was captured on a grainy black-and-white surveillance video urinating into a reservoir that slakes the thirst of Portland, Ore.’s 600,000 or so residents. (Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine? That’s how much the bladder comfortably holds, although the bladder in question obviously wasn’t comfortable. We get the fact that Beervana prides itself on its water supply. The water bureau

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
