    NBC Sports delivers again on Preakness coverage
    If one of the hallmarks of true greatness is consistency, NBC Sports is a truly great operation, because again, it came, it covered, it turned in another top-notch Preakness telecast. Covering a horse race for a mainstream audience is not nearly as easy...

    'NBC Sunday Night Football' still the best in television

    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...

    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...

    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...
