    • Surprise that it didn’t fold sooner for Al Jazeera America it wasn’t on my cable provider lineup. Plus everyone wants to sue them and Peyton Manning may sue Al Jazeera for there doc that slandered his good name along with other athletes.

      • When a network is the choice of terrorists to air their propaganda, it will have that kind of a problem… I had the same lack of comfort even as it used to be hailed as a revolution that was going to change the Middle East (clear over-hype it’s safe to say!)

    • You make a good point about the name. Their sports empire was renamed Bein Sports and nobody seems to mind it’s owned by the same people as Al Jazeera.

  1. The MadTV thing was amusing. I had it on in the background. Oddly I found that much funnier than SNL.

  2. Look at NCIS’ re-run ratings and explain to me why it’s unreasonable to want hits to at the very, very least beat that number…

    Congrats to the people who make NCIS.
