Whom Do They Like Less: Downey or CBS?

February 22, 1992

How would baseball fans feel if a TV network broadcast only 10 minutes of a scheduled World Series game and missed the rest of the action by interviewing players' family members, showing footage from spring training, explaining how baseball bats are manufactured, sampling hot dogs and having 10 commentators telling jokes to each other? Would it frustrate anyone?

That's what's happening during CBS' Winter Olympic "coverage." They kept on repeating that "we'll have complete coverage for you," but only a fraction was shown. CBS, you really underestimated the viewers' intelligence. A lot of meaningless hype, and so little of the enormous potential realized.
