In Response to Re: NBC's treatment of Ann Curry was beyond appalling:
[QUOTE]OK, I guess I was off -- wrong. Turns out that their ratings were really plunging. Whether or not it was her fault, or Charley Rose's, or a combination of factors/personalities, NBC had to do somethingASAP, however clumsily, so as not to lose their dominance. She was it. But I still hold to my concern that it was hammer and tongs. (That's two, NBC, or is it three?)
This comes back to mind a propos of the report on the numbers...[/QUOTE]
And now comes a report on WBZ this morning that Good Morning America has been cleaning Today's clock: Averaging over 5 million watchers to NBC's 4 million. Spin-wise, as well as factually, this has got to be a debacle for NBC.
And I do still wonder if adding Charlie Rose has anything to do with it -- and, if so, may have been the best thing GMA has ever done.
Robin39, I'm not trying to pursue a dueling threads course, but just wanted tie into the earlier reports that the numbers were looking bad for NBC. Turns out that they were looking into the abyss (and they had the Olympics!).
By the way, do watchers think that if all ( three or so watching ;-) ) of us assault boston.com at once about the scores of misplaced (etc.!) threads in this forum, that they might hear us?
