Dead Air

Let’s spread the good cheer around.

Last Friday the tv network nbc was flailing to sell the last eight or so open ads for the Big Game. (Though they were insisting with a strong pr effort that there was no problem.) The commercial spots are too full for a PSA, it seems. Rumor has it that the remaining ads are priced to sell–which might guarantee next year’s sponsors wait a good bit of time to see if the next broadcaster panics and chops the $3M per ad price way down.

Honestly, these people are more hilarious that the political pro-life movement. The only thing that saved nbc’s bacon on this event is that they lined up advertisers months ago before the smoke blew away and the morrors broke. I wonder how cbs will fare with next year’s game. Do they try to lock in corporations now, or do they cross their fingers and hope for an economic miracle by summertime?

I would like to see the Cards win if for no other reason than seeing the post-game dialogue:

“Kurt Warner, you’ve just won the Super Bowl. What do you have to say for yourself?”

“Life: imagine the potential!”
