FishbowlLA correspondent Dan Cox reports from the Television Critics Association tour:
The second Television Critics Association session that followed NBC Entertainment president Ben Silverman‘s coming out party was an assembly of ex-NFL players and broadcasters around NBC’s Sunday Night Football (formerly known as Monday Night Football), including broadcaster Bob Costas, announcer Al Michaels, announcer and former coach John Madden, announcer and former Cincinnati Bengal wide out Cris Collinsworth, former New York Giants star-turned-Today show Tiki Barber and Steelers star Jerome Bettis, NBC Sports chairman Dick Ebersol as well as a handful of network execs. The subject of football (or lack of it) in L.A. came up after former Hollywood Reporter editor-in-chief Alex Ben Block blurted out: “When are we going to see football in L.A., the second biggest market for a sports team?”
Costas’ throat-clearing reply: “The L.A. market sucks.”
