NBC: The Dumbest Unluckiest Network Ever

What do you do if you're a major television network under criticism for lame coverage of the Olympics? The Olympics you spent a ton of money to acquire the rights to cover, in the hopes of boosting advertising revenues with exclusive coverage of a major sporting event.

Well, some would suggest you adapt and modify your programming. Lay off of the silly interviews and back stories, and instead broaden your coverage of the events, try to capture the spirit and enthusiasm of it all.

Or, you could just step on your dick.

They chose, poorly.

UPDATE: I'm being told (educated actually) advertising slots are scheduled well in advance of events, it's not easily changed. So I'll call it unfortunate and go watch some track and field stuff. And instead of claiming NBC stepped on their dick, I'll try to keep an eye out for mine.
