Sunflower Cable cries Uncle; More Super Bowl numbers; Costas leaves HBO; No Super Bowl bump for NBC
– NBC hoped it would get an audience for its Monday lineup of Chuck, Heroes, and Medium. Didn’t work.
– But NBC did get some good news: Super Bowl XLIII viewership was adjusted upward to 98.7 million viewers – making it the most-watched Super Bowl in history, which the Pittsburgh Steelers won its sixth Super Bowl title.
Earlier, KTKA-TV – which is owned by the same company who owns Sunflower Cable, which kept the two stations off its system – returned to Dish Network on January. The General Manager of KTKA just happens to be Sunflower COO Patrick Knorr’s wife.
