Barbara Walters Makes Return to NBC

Not sure who had the remote control for those huge monitors at the Romney campaign site in Boston — the ones that kept changing all night. But it made for fun viewing for us.

During an ABC liveshot with David Muir, Fox News was on the monitors. Later, during a liveshot with NBC’s Peter AlexanderABC was on. At the end of the report, Brian Williams said, “Peter Alexander, and for a time, Barbara Walters and Cokie Roberts. Thank you all.”

NBC gets the bragging rights for being the first to call the election for Obama at 11:12pmET. An Ohio victory put the president over the top. CBS followed at 11:15, then Fox News, CNN and at 11:25pm ABC News.
