NBC halts Olympics for promotional monkeyshines
NEW YORK (AP) — Viewers were incensed Sunday night when NBC cut away from the Olympics' conclusion to air a sitcom featuring a monkey.
During 16 days from London, the sprawl of Olympics coverage was seemingly indomitable, running roughshod across the NBC schedule. Yet Sunday's package of highlights from the closing ceremony deferred meekly to the preview of a new NBC comedy, "Animal Practice," which then was followed by a half-hour of local news.
When taped Olympics coverage came to an abrupt halt at 11 p.m. Eastern time, viewers were advised that the festivities would resume in one hour.
