Covering NBC's Fireworks Coverage

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usBlue, Red and White! No not the American flag I'm talking about the order of Mariah Carey shrinking wardrobe changes. The first half of the broadcast was in HDTV whether you owned a HDTV set or not. I guess no one noticed the black frame's ever surrounding all the commercials during the broadcast. After the fireworks were over the screen went back to normal. Al Roker hosted in half a suit and some baseball cap.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usDonald Trump tried to intro the fireworks but instead just pitched his crappy show.
This was one of the worst televised 4th of July coverages ever. Only one musical act no speeches and no mini-history moments. NBC really dropped the ball. I'm not sure how much control Macy's had over the coverage but I remember just last year and all the previous years the show was longer and had more speakers. I TiVo'd The show and unless TiVo made a mistake it was only an hour long.

TV is educational. If you can't learn something everyday your box is broken.
