Comments: Idiocy

The Fox Execs thought they would get better total audiences by splitting the games up in primetime.

I haven't talked to any of them yet, but my many DC area Cub fan friends are probably pretty surly about having to go to a bar to watch the NLCS.

It was just idiotic. F/X, a Fox entertainment cable channel (I think they showed regular season games on it -- usually the Dodgers -- a few years back), had the Cubs on, and at least I could flip channels, but it was still bizarre. Wouldn't you want both the Cubs and the Red Sox-Yankees on national TV, even if one of the two has to air in the afternoon?
