CBS, Time Warner Sign 14-Year March Madness Deal

by Scott Harris, posted Apr 23rd 2010 11:45AM
If you woke up and found yourself suddenly in possession of $10.8 billion dollars, what would you spend it on? A new suit? A nice new car? Maybe get your hair did? Well, here's another option to consider: the rights to broadcast March Madness for the next 14 years.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, that's the option that CBS and Time Warner have chosen, as the two media giants have teamed up to buy the lucrative broadcast rights from the NCAA. The deal, which begins next year, supersedes CBS's prior broadcast deal, which had been set to run through 2014.

President Obama Talks College Hoops with Matt Lauer (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Mar 30th 2010 4:00PM
President Obama Talks College Hoops with Matt LauerBarack Obama appeared on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC) to talk a little college basketball with Matt Lauer. There, it was revealed that the President had picked none of the Final Four teams correctly.

"How's your bracket look?" Lauer asked Obama. Obama replied, "It is completely blown up ... It is a sign that I was paying singular focus on heath care." "That's your excuse and you're sticking with it?" asked Lauer.

Since Obama's college basketball picks have all lost, Lauer asked the President for his revised choice for the team that will win it all. Obama's choice? West Virginia. Changing your college picks in the middle of the tournament? Is this what was meant by "Change You Can Believe In?"

Review: Survivor Samoa - The Game Ain't Over (season finale)

The final five go for the million on Survivor
(S19E14) I suppose it's only fitting and par for Sunday evening programming that the big three-hour Survivor season finale and live reunion show was delayed by football here in the NYC viewing area. No, I won't dwell on it. But, really. CBS, can't you get this scheduling thing down?

What I should dwell on are these skinny legs in the image above. It's a wonder the three guys were able to walk out of there at all. Tonight we went down from five to four to three and then onto the sole survivor in the live voting reveal. Am I pleased about it all? Read on.

Review: The Amazing Race - It Starts With an F, That's All I'm Saying

Kafka-esque absurdity on The Amazing Race in Prague

(S15E11) Next week is the big season finale of The Amazing Race. But this week the last four teams have to battle it out for the prized final three slots racing for the finish line. So, you would think this is the time to put on the big boy (or girl) pants, step up to the plate, give it your all, and a thousand other corny trite sayings. Alas, one team tonight has a huge fail. Of all the legs to fall apart and go kerflooey, this one so near the finale is cruel indeed. Too bad, so sad.

Big Brother 11: PoV #9, Eviction #10, HoH #11 (start)

Kevin needs to win the power of veto
(S11E27) Yep, we're nearing the end of Big Brother 11 as the final four gets chopped down to the final three. It's not the final three (or four) I would have imagined at the beginning of the season, but rarely does my first impression hold out. As the very pregnant Julie Chen mentioned at the top of the show, there is one representative from each original clique left in the game. I also wouldn't have predicted that she'd last the season. But she proved me wrong.

The Amazing Race: Having a Baby's Gotta Be Easier Than This

Jen has a fear of swimming on The Amazing Race

(S14E10) Oh, boo-hoo. I don't understand why anyone with such a fear of water would even consider going on a show like The Amazing Race. Almost every season there's some sort of swimming which has to be done. Perhaps I'm biased because I learned to swim at a young age. My own personal theory of dealing with life is that everyone should learn how to swim, drive a stick shift, and change a flat tire. Hey ... those talents could win the race!

Big Brother 10: Nominations #10

Dan and Memphis the musclemen(S10E24) Aftermath of Renny's Eviction

Keesha was obviously the most effected by the Renny's absence. She cried in the Diary Room saying, "It's just really hard to watch her walk out the door." Later she lamented that Renny's picture turned black and white. Renny, a woman who lights up the room when she walks in, should always be in color according to Keesha.

Other reactions to Renny's departure varied. Jerry had mixed feelings. He thinks his HOH reign was a success because it kept him in the house another week, but a failure because Dan was his target. Memphis feels that this past week was extremely successful. Renny never really trusted him so he's taken out another threat. And I'd have to agree. Renny called him a snake in the past and didn't really want him in the alliance of four. Dan was also happy with Renny's eviction. If she had made it to the final two, she would have won. Hands down.

Survivor Micronesia: Stir the Pot (season finale)

The final four women stand tall on Survivor Micronesia
(S16E14) "May the best woman win." - Amanda

Well, this surely was a season of blindsides on Survivor Micronesia, wasn't it? Down to the finale, it just went on and on. After the excitement we had all season due to the strategical game play, I felt tonight's finale was a bit lackluster and full of filler. No, I'm not fussing just because my favorite didn't win. Heck, if that were the case, I would have been gone when Yau-Man hit the dust! Read on past the jump for my full review of the finale.

Big Brother 9: Final PoV, final three, final HOH part 1

Ryan in charge in the Big Brother 9 house
(S09E33) "Personally, I want to win this veto because I want to be a power whore." - Ryan

Yep, I wanted to get the atmosphere just right for this review of the latest Big Brother 9 episode. I think Ryan's sentence says it all. Well, as far as his own strategy goes, that is. He's sitting pretty heading into the final three as his position of Head of Household gives him a definite spot in the three. But the remaining three must wheel and deal, scramble, sell their souls ... whatever it takes.

Read on past the jump for the full review.

Survivor China: A Slippery Little Sucker (season finale)

Courtney from Survivor China(S15E13) Well, this is it. Who's going to win it all on Survivor China -- the schemer, the lunch lady, the beauty queen, or the waitress long shot? Now, if I were a wagering woman, I could have won some money on this one. As with the first season with Richard Hatch, I picked the winner from the first episode. So, I'm two for fifteen. I guess I should ask Jean-Robert how those odds do in the real world, eh?

Ah, but I won't say a word about the winner before the jump. I know how dangerous that can be.

But I was right. 'Nuff said.

Survivor China: Hello, I'm Still a Person!

by Jackie Schnoop, posted Dec 14th 2007 2:02AM
Amanda and Peih-Gee from Survivor China(S15E12) We're getting down to the wire for the Survivor China season. Tonight's show determined the final four and the big finale and reunion shows are on this Sunday night starting at 8 PM ET/PT.

Although I really love the locale this season, it hasn't been shaping up to be on my top favorite seasons list for the show. I will declare right now, no matter who wins it all, I like it better than Vanuatu.

That isn't saying much, though.
