    Seriously NBC, this is embarassing. Taking a page from ABC PR?

  • RandomCommentor

    Absolutely Pathetic. They are trying to spin it as well as ABC but failing even at that.

    Putting grimm between these two failures… ug. A fashion show no one watches and a “news” show that should have been cancelled last year.

  • Blake Williams

    These shows would not survive on CBS with those numbers……Go Vegas

    So 20/20 is more “newsy” just because more people watch it? Wasn’t 20/20 all about bad relationships or something stupid like that last night?

  • DryedMangoez

    Yeah, definitely not helping Grimm.
    But damn, why did NBC hire ABC’s PR people? Really now?

  • forg

    ABC PR are better writers ;)

    RandomCommentator never said 20/20 was more “newsy” than Rock Center. In fact, they made no corrolation between the two. ABC is mentioned once and it is in relation to their PR department writing a better press release. Seems like someone is a little defensive over their “news” show that no one wathces.

    I don’t think ANYTHING on NBC would survive on CBS.
