Why did you interrupt the Olympic Closing Ceremonies to bring us the first episode of "The Marriage Ref." It's the OLYMPIC CLOSING CEREMONIES!
Look, I realize that you're struggling. You've pretty much said you're losing money on the Olympics (though have gotten some boffo ratings). You're desperate for your mid-season replacement shows to do well.
Those just don't seem like good enough reasons to cut the Closing Ceremonies in half and show them during late-night coverage. Would you cut the Presidential Inauguration in half? The State of the Union?
Let's keep the pomp and circumstance where it should be--and try not to show your desperation. It's a little sad.
