ESPN spent a lot of time covering the release of Tim Tebow from the Jets. There was an article about it on awful announcing.com. I am not sure why ESPN finds him so fascinating that he gets so much coverage/discussion. I mean he was a backup who hardly played last season. Of course to be fair the Dallas Cowboys get a lot of coverage for a team that has won 1 playoff game in the last six years.
The NFL Network and ESPN both did a good job on the draft. I think the NFL Network did a slightly better job. I think Mike Mayock does a good job without too much clowning around.
Awful Announcing.com also has a list of the 10 worst reality shows starring athletes. Terrell Owens was on three of them and Chad Johnson/OchoCinco was on two. The list also had Ryan Lochte’s reality show after just seeing one or two episodes. (Wow, it must have been pretty bad.)
I wonder how NBC convinced Jay Leno to retire this time. I think last time it was awkward for him because NBC came to him after they had a deal with Conan O’Brien to take over for him. I think Jimmy Fallon will do well at the Tonight Show. I guess this can lead to Bill Cater’s next book if something goes wrong.
