Lately, you may have noticed a new promo running on NBC touting the peacock network’s ‘exciting’ slate of January programming. Courtesy of the fantastic site LostRemote, here’s a transcription:
“January First, NBC gives you exactly what you want – NEW TV. NBC will have more new stuff than anybody else – with seven new premieres in the first ten days. Celebrity Apprentice, Biggest Loser Couples, American Gladiators and One vs. 100. Plus: New episodes of Law & Order, Law & Order: CI and Medium. So whenever you hear those Peacock chimes – you’ll know there’s (bing bong bong) something new happening… on NBC.”
Now, not to rain on the NBC Marketing Department’s parade (or any of the networks for that matter), but CELEBRITY APPRENTICE, AMERICA GLADIATORS, ONE vs 100 and BIGGEST LOSTER COUPLES are not exactly what we want.
And in an effort to remind the powers that be of this, theTVaddict.com will proudly be posting our STRIKE PROOF TV GUIDE on a daily basis: Our guide to what we won’t be watching come 8PM tonight.
Because let’s face it, what we really want is an end to the WGA strike and a return to the regular programming we love. Oh, and while we’ve got your attention, would it kill you to bring back VERONICA MARS?
