We weren’t at Talladega for last weekend’s crazy race, so we talked to someone who was: NBC Sports’ pit reporter Mike Massaro. He’s been covering NASCAR at the national level for 17 years—since TNN was a thing!—and surprisingly, he doesn’t think ‘Dega’s drama will affect today’s race and beyond too much.
NBC just got the rights to air NASCAR and the Nationwide Series starting in 2015. With F1 on their roster, too, it looks like NBC will be the home of American car enthusiasts who don't watch everything on their computers.
The commentator's box for NBC's coverage of Formula One next year will be led by Leigh Diffey, David Hobbs and Steve Matchett. This is a good thing.
So, up until about four minutes ago, we were very optimistic about NBC's upcoming coverage of Formula One.
Last week, we received word that SPEED had lost the rights to Formula One to NBC after having the series on the network for 17 years. Parent company FOX said that SPEED made a "fiscally responsible" bid to keep the series for 2013 and beyond. But today FOX announced they extended their NASCAR coverage for eight more…
Brian Williams co-hosted The Today Show this morning, where he was served coffee in an oversized mug (hilarious), bantered about Twitter ineptitude (adorable), and kicked it with Gabby Sidibe (sigh/swoon). Like everything the news anchor does, his temporary gig was endearing as hell, and hotdamn did he look handsome.…
NBC's "The Pink Panther Show" featured the unique "Panthermobile" seen here throughout its broadcasts from 1969-1976. Designed by Jay Ohrberg, who is responsible for decades of TV and Movie cars, this custom creation is going up for auction in a slightly unconventional manner.
SNL wasted no time spoofing the TSA—and its controversial pat-downs—tonight when it aired a retro spoof ad that likened an unwanted physical experience at the airport to a purchased night with a hot female escort. The video, inside.
David Letterman really likes to hold a grudge, doesn't he? Tonight, Letterman went on a completely random aside about January's Late Night Wars, and once again ripped into—and impersonated—Jay Leno, calling Leno's "regular guy" act BS. Video inside.
Conan O'Brien introduced the Bugatti Veyron Mouse as a new Tonight Show character Thursday night, not because it was funny, but because it was "crazy expensive" for NBC. To be funny he'd have to crash it into a lake. UPDATED!
In what would be the largest car crash in Autobahn history, NBC New York's reporting a 259 car pile-up near Hamelerwald, Germany. UPDATE!
Austin, TX appears to be ground zero for the electronic traffic signs hacking threat, as the "top story" on last night's local news demonstrates.
Transportation officials in Texas are "scrambling" to stop the "hacking electronic traffic signs" threat. Didn't we tell you not to play with the electronic road signs? This is why we can't have anything nice.
Due to the failure of Knight Rider and expected production costs, NBC has decided to pass on Top Gear USA. The BBC's shopping the US rendition of the hit show to interested cable outlets.
Just in time for the September 24th premier of NBC's new Knight Rider show, the local NBC news affiliate in Grand Rapids, Michigan has found
a great way to shamelessly promote the show a woman claiming that her recently sold Mustang GT was bought to be turned into a real-life example of KITT for the show. Deb Fralick…
Somewhere between "Morphing" and "Transforming" is the very Team America-ish "Valmorphanization." That's the term we feel best using to describe what KITT's doing in this one minute clip from the new Knight Rider TV show premiering September 24th on NBC. As you'd expect, KITT is apparently fitted with a current Ford…
It's official — "Turbo Boost" is back for KITT. One of the biggest disappointments in the Knight Rider made-for-TV movie was the total lack of KITT's signature, once-per-show super-move — turbo-boost. After getting the green light for series production, the new Knight Rider series has already calmed our fears the…
