NBC has been majorly criticized throughout their entire 2012 Olympic Games coverage, and THEN they go and cut half the Iconic British-musician STUFFED pie that was the closing ceremony in favor of some new comedy about an animal hospital…
Legendary acts like The Who, Ray Davies of the Kinks, a special performance featuring a Kate Bush classic (above), and Matt Bellamy of Muse were completely cut OUT from the US' broadcast, and now new show Animal Practice is already surrounded by a toxic cloud of anti-NBC negativity. Frustrating to the maximus!!
Kevin Mchale: DEAR NBC. "Interrupting the Olympic closing ceremony for an hr to air a show about a fictional animal dr. before it ends is a disgrace."
Robot Chicken: "Doing a Twitter search for 'Animal Practice' right now is like tapping a keg of pure hate."
Ahhhh well, better luck
next year in 2014 at the Winter Olympics, NBC!
If you haven't lost ALL viewership by then…
