    Bill Ripken has a World Series season at MLB Network
    Watching baseball on television is one of the great joys of my life. But I have to be honest. By the end of the year, I couldn't watch the Orioles any more on MASN. I was so mad about them playing without a sense of playoff urgency — and the...

    The case for keeping 'Redskins'
    "Think for a moment about the term 'Redskins,'" NBC Sports commentator Bob Costas exhorted viewers in his halftime tirade during Sunday's Cowboys-Redskins game. "Ask yourself what the equivalent would be, if directed [at] African Americans, Hispanics,...

    Fans weigh in on pain of watching CBS telecast of Ravens loss
    Maybe it's the holiday season, but some Ravens fans and readers seemed inspired in their comments on the CBS telecast of the Ravens embarrassing loss to the New England Patriots Sunday. Here's one from Rick Forno. I asked if I could use his full name...
  • 'NBC Sunday Night Football' still the best in television

    'NBC Sunday Night Football' still the best in television
    It was true last year, and it was true again Thanksgiving night: No one does the NFL like “NBC Sunday Night Football.” From the opening aerial shots making even old Baltimore look all glittery and glam, to Bob Costas welcoming tens of...

    Adrian Peterson's version of 'Parenthood'
    Reigning NFL MVP Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings has been criticized for his decision to play in Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers despite the fact that a son — that he had only recently learned existed — had died of head...
  • Bill Ripken joins Bob Costas for Red Sox, Yankees on MLB Friday

    Bill Ripken joins Bob Costas for Red Sox, Yankees on MLB Friday
    Far be it from me to suggest anyone interested in TV baseball watch anything but the Orioles game Friday night. Still, given the O's last three games in Arizona, having a backup plan seems like a good idea just in case things start to fall apart --...
  • NBC compromises Ravens telecast with its shilling for Ryan Seacrest

    NBC compromises Ravens telecast with its shilling for Ryan Seacrest
    Network TV never knows when to stop shilling, selling, hyping and hustling its audience. It's like a law of physics that whenever a network creates something of quality, it must always find a way to cheapen the product in trying to squeeze every last...

    NBC Sports delivers another winning Preakness telecast
    Whether it's a Sunday night football game or the third Saturday in May at Pimlico, when NBC Sports floods the zone with members of its A-Team, the telecast is almost always a winner. That was again the case for the 138th Preakness Stakes -- thanks to...

    No tears here as NBC finally puts 'Rock Center' out of its journalistic misery
    You will find no tears here for the cancellation of Brian Williams' "Rock Center," which was first reported Friday by the New York Times. It was one of the sorriest excuses for a newsmagazine that I have seen in 30 years of reporting on network...
  • Turn to Team NBC for most complete Preakness TV coverage

    Turn to Team NBC for most complete Preakness TV coverage
    Last year, 8.8 million viewers saw NBC’s coverage of the Preakness. That’s the kind of big-tent mass audience that makes the race one of Baltimore’s showcase events. And that doesn’t count the hundreds of thousands who will watch...
  • Preakness coverage by NBC shows power of preparation

    Preakness coverage by NBC shows power of preparation
    NBC Sports says it had 170 employees in Baltimore this week to cover the Preakness, and from the looks of the TV package it presented, all of them earned their keep. NBC's network coverage started at 4:30 p.m., and it hardly ever sagged for more than a...
