Been a bit since I heard anything regarding ABC, ESPN and the NFL. Last we knew they were holding off on further negotiations until after the playoffs. Well today USAToday has a short article on the progress. The gist of the matter is the ESPN deal for Sunday Night Football is close, but that ABC is tired of taking a bath on Monday night and Monday Night Football still hangs in the balance. I hope they work something out here. Possibly have JJ Abrams or Joss Whedon write the script… it works for everything else on ABC.
Speaking of ESPN you may have noticed the commercials advertising ESPN the weekend coming up. I wasn’t able to make it last year. This year I hope will be different. So pencil in February 25-27th and look for me behind that guy holding up the dorky sign.
