Whoa, Wait, What?

Dear NBC,

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.

Your pal,
