I Could Really Do Without The "Super Suite"

Sunday, February 01, 2009


I didn't think anything could out dumb the red carpet show that FOX puts on for the MLB All Star Game, but I think NBC's "Super Suite" with Al Roker has stolen that title away from them. So far you've had great celebrity interviews from Hayden Panettiere (She's a Jets fan! Who knew?), Chuck and the always annoying, Jimmy Fallon!



Other than that nonsense, NBC is jumping around like crazy during the pregame, and the sheer number of people is borderline maddening. You've got Bob, Cris, Dungy and Holmgren on the ship. Dan and Keith running around the locker rooms and the parking lots. All while Peter King, Alex Flanagan and Andrea Kremer, stalk the team's hotels. Oh and don't forget the Top Chef competition underneath the outdoor set! 5 hours of plugs for NBC shows is exactly what I wanted!!!

I know the Super Bowl is all about hype, but this pregame show is taking that just a bit too far.

9 Comments:

I knew NBC would take something as simple as a Super Bowl pre-game show and turn it into crap.


That's why they are in 4th place.......

On a positive note, I think in a couple hours, we will have enough players, celebs, idiots for a Douche-Off... sponsored by Summer's Eve... [wink wink]

Hayden Panettiere did not belong anywhere near an interview for a football show. She was clueless.

A 2-part conversation between Bob Costas and Bruce Springsteen. Ugh. Who cares?

If they have a football player workout segment starring Jackie Warner of Bravo's Work Out or something about football wives that relates to Real Housewives of [Insert City Here], I'm watching Puppy Bowl V.

Journey is not Journey without Steve Perry. And Leezy, you're spot on with the Douche-off contestants. Add Dane Cook and you have a Triple-Threat in my opinion.

I understand that NBC wants to promote the heck out of their shows, but I'd rather it be contained to Roker in a "studio" suite, then migrating onto the pregame set. That keeps the sports guys from asking dumb questions. Let the weatherman do that!

Don't quit your day job, Al. You're much better at weather. Natalie Morales is much hotter than Alex Flanagan and Andrea Kremer but that doesn't mean she should be interviewing players.
