BEST: NBC justifying its late-night coverage
Perhaps feeling a little guilt at pushing anticipated events past the 11 p.m. mark, at least here on the West Coast, where everything is tape-delayed, NBC aired a piece Monday night about how to combat sleep deprivation. Stay hydrated and call in to work sick were among the tips. Interviews with viewers were a nice touch, but no one offered the network the most obvious piece of advice: no more emotional fluff pieces just show the events. That would free up three hours right there.
