    • It did lose more than last week, but given NBC’s awful scripted performance, you’d be hard pressed to think Bob Greenblatt could come up with anything better.

  1. It looks like AGT is much stronger this year with Simon Cowell on the show now. That was a great move to get him in there this season. Better Late Than Never might be the real deal as it has way better retention than Maya & Marty and other post-AGT flops of the past. NBC is on a straight role this entire summer especially lately.

    • Not too difficult to put the olympics on however… 😉

      As for NBC, this reinforces my idea that it should stop making scripted shows as long as Greenblatt is in charge.

      A sad state of affairs maybe, but here we are…

      Would anyone even notice if NBC stopped making dramas and comedies?

      • Olympics is a bit of an automatic ratings engine so it really shouldn’t count because that’s not something that NBC originated.

        Greenblatt has been a lot more successful in realities and dramas but the problem is mainly comedies for them and some of these weird dramas that keep getting greenlit like Timeless.

        Nobody’s noticing already that they even have comedies. LOL!

        • You’re right. Comedies are even worse for Greenblatt & Co. With dramas at least they had The Blacklist which, while not a genuine hit in my opinion, is a show people would notice is gone.

          I couldn’t even name NBC’s comedies…

  2. I like Better Late Than Never pretty entertaining show although Terry should keep his clothes on.
