Still Angry

Just as a follow-up on the Olympic hockey mess NBC has created for itself ...

Fans in the U.S. are still angry over the way NBC relegated the U.S.-Canada game to MSNBC rather than showing it live on the big network. (MSNBC did not have the game in HD, and viewers on the west coast saw a replay of the Russia-Czech game). Ratings for the game were huge for MSNBC, making it the 2nd-highest rated program in the network's history, behind only election night 2008. NBC will counter that ice dancing had better ratings than the hockey, but it would be interesting to see how the numbers would have looked if the game was on NBC and the ice dancing on MSNBC.

Simply put, NBC dropped the ball (or puck, in this case).
