I'm sure back-to-back all new episodes of Whitney will pull NBC right out of that slump.

From the picture above, it is clear NBC should bring back Deal or No Deal.


...

Hey, NBC? Why not try new, edgy things, say:

A) A game show that appeals to the smartypants in the audience. They cal it The Chase

B) An Prime Time Animated Adventure TV show, aimed at the people who grew up in the 80s, something like Gargoyles (or SWAT Kats, if you're aiming for humor)

That's probably more apt of Jeff Zucker. He's now currently killing CNN.

Apparently, you fire the new guy and rehire the old festering guy.

Growing up, Saturday night tradition was to watch Sabado Gigante. We loved the car contest at the end to see if they won the car or not. Haven't watched it in years but that is the true definition of variety show. It had it all.

They have singing competitions, live performances, comedy sketches, random tours of vacation destinations, sad reunions of family members who haven't seen each other in decades, a Mauryesque "am I the father" segment and big breasted women.

Imagine that, create content that people don't want to watch and people don't watch it.

It's like magic, you can't explain that

If NBC had a program that sounds half as awesome as the way you describe Sabado Gigante, they might have ratings.

You're telling me. They really didn't like it when the casket was lowered into the ground and I shouted "GGGGOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAA---AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-AAAAAAALLLLLLLL"

Univision and Telemundo have this business strategy that involves inserting smoking hot babes in skimpy clothing in every aspect of their programming from children's shows to news casts.  A few of the TV screens at the gym I go to have those channels on all the time.  I'll watch the hell out of that when I'm on the treadmill even with the sound off.

Hiring the large breasted latinas to come out and dance may also have been an idea that the mourners just weren't ready for.

Along similar lines, there was a dance show, I think on Univision, called Muy Buenos Dias, and it is now gone!!! What happened to it!! It was the perfect show for morning workouts!! No more hot dancing latinas in the AM dammit!!!

Interesting how everyone assumes nbc gets worse rating because of the quality of its shows. The reason univision is getting higher ratings has nothing to do with show quality on either network, it has to do with the fact that there is a HUGE mexican population in the USA. Id be willing to bet money that univisions watchers are 99% located within 200 miles of the border with mexico.

NBC  does have crappy shows though.
Still better than univision

Wow, I thought I was the only one. I guess WGTE in Toledo wasn't the only PBS show that had that on syndication.

Can't say I learned much Spanish, but I loved the theme song.
