The biggest story in town today, aside from Joe Torre slipping into some Dodger Blue, is the writers strike. What shows will be cancelled. What local businesses will be affected. Who will be picketing where.
But then, there’s this…
NBC is running promos for their Green is Universal week. The peacock logo is green. Shows dealing with environmental consciousness. Programming that was clearly written, produced, and in the can months ago.
Yet, somehow, Green Is Universal begins airing the same week of the writers strike?
Is the timing of this an attempt to distract viewers from all the attention to the strike? Was the promotion even designed with the potential of a strike in mind? Or is the network that brought you D*ck in a Box just concerned about the environment?
Time will tell.
