CBS Is Having Some Problems Tonight (Hi Dick!)

Thursday, March 27, 2008



The above photo was what came up on the screen after 20 seconds of nothing when Greg Gumbel threw the pregame to commercial, but it wasn't nearly as humorous as what happened when they came back from the commercials....



Whoops. I think you picked the wrong game to switch to there CBS. At least HD is working though.

CBS puts up that graphic during LOCAL STATION BREAKS.
Your local affiliate was sleeping and missed their chance to run commercials.
It's sorta like a SIGN saying HEY DUMMY, YOU MISSED YOUR BREAK.
Plus the affiliate can confirm their routed to the correct event or show.

Looks like my friend Karen Blackman (from Clemson), sitting in the background...(see her in the first picture with Pam Ward over here).

"PHOENIX CONSTANT" interrupted the WVU/Xavier game in the middle of overtime (KIRO Seattle).

Then they slumped off to commercial before returning.

Please tell me you got Raferty saying "I like to do that at night" when Lundquist said they had "taken off" the arena clock that was mismatched to the game clock. Creepy. Skin crawling creepy.
