NBC’s having a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day

All is not well today in the NBC universe. For starters, NBC.com is apparently the victim of a hack job. Prospective visitors to the site risk exposure to malware:

NBC.com malware

But the “situation” gets worse. According to Deadline Hollywood, NBC has finished up sweeps in fifth place among 18-49 year olds. We know: hard to believe considering quality programming like “1600 Penn,” not to mention its sterling record when it comes to journalistic integrity. Needless to say, Twitterers are serving up some tasty mockery:

Mmm … schadenfreudelicious.

  • Steve_J

    Stay off NBC seems to be good advice for every day.

  • Rabid

    Seems to be fixed as of 5pm EST.

  • Jack Deth

    Who in their right mind visits Mos Eisley, Burkina Faso or NBC.com?

    I thought those employed there believe that this new fangled “Internets” would be a passing fad. Like Zoot Suits, Fruit Boots and Hula Hoops.

      Hold on there a minute, Jack…I’d LOVE to visit Mos Eisley, as long as I had a light saber. Remember how fast everyone was to leave Obi Wan alone when he hacked off Cong. Waxman’s…errr…that criminal who had the death sentence in 12 systems’ arm?? Other than that, and the fact that they were discriminatory against robots…ok…I see your point…but it would be a fun time going in there and stirring the pot, no?? Cool music too…

      • Jack Deth

        Hi, Laura:

        The Light Saber is definitely a “must have” fashion accessory when imbibing Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters and listening to Techno Polka. Ignoring Salacious B. Crumb and enjoying Sly Snoodle. 😀

  • daPenguin

    I thought NBC was a virus

    • Judy B

      And highly infectious.

      • lainer51

        and deadly

        • http://www.facebook.com/alarie.martin Alarie M Martin

          and the only cure is conservatism

  • Jack Deth

    Memo to AceOfSpades:

    At least they still kinda have ‘Southland’. Even if it’s been farmed out to TNT.

  • I am not MetaData

    Oh good! The war on the lapdog media has begun. I hope they keep getting hit until they promise to report NEWS in an UNBIASED manner again!

    • Canadian in USA

      Don’t hold your breath.

      • ked5

        always good advice. who wants a headache?

      • Judy B

        Can’t we hope for a nano second?

      • I am not MetaData

        No blue face here. Just wishing there were ways to rotor router the crap out of the media so people actually get REAL info vs the bullshit that is fed to them.

        • Terry Murphy

          But if the 47% Libs didn’t get fed their daily ration of propaganda BS, they’d starve to death. Not that I see a downside to that…

          • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

            I don’t even think they watch NBC. That is unless they run segments on Entertainment Tonight.

      • hoytsmack

        Actually I would hold my breath-their website stinks!

    • http://www.facebook.com/alarie.martin Alarie M Martin

      Maybe Anonymous is doing good for a change.

      • misterp

        That’s what i was wondering!!! Are their liberty loving hackers??

        • http://cowboybebop.wikia.com/wiki/Faye_Valentine Faye Valentine

          They’re chaotic neutral. I wouldn’t recommend them as allies. Or, if they do align themselves with the forces of good, don’t expect it to be permanent.

          • Zane Henry

            +1 DnD reference!

    • misterp

      Why be willing to forgive them? we don’t need NBC in my humble opinion of course! But could you ever trust them again?

      • Terry Murphy

        The alphabet networks have betrayed the public trust and can NEVER be trusted again. If only FOX could get hold of NCIS. It’s the only show on the networks worth watching.

        • TomJB

          Love NCIS too, DVR it and skip commercials, and usually off USA Network! I still do, however, catch myself rolling my eyes at least once per episode from multiculti pablum.

    • Cool_Arrow

      They already promise that.
      Problem is, the pudding is terrible

  • Jim Denney

    Is it fixed yet? I’m having Hopium hour withdrawal pains.

  • Canadian in USA

    Next year, NBC will finish behind a box of Fruit Loops.

    • Allan Martel

      Then it will be purchased by Al-Jazeera!

      • http://www.google.com/profiles/david.dlpe daviddlpe

        No need. That would be redundant.

  • FreedomFighter

    The liberal media not only wants to fill your head with BS, they want to fill your computer with it too.

  • SJ’s Dad

    Hmmm, looks like I picked the right year to give up NBC for lent!
    (Then again, it was kind of like giving up kale juice, not much of a sacrifice!-)

    • Catchance

      Kale juice! Bwahahahaha.

      • TomJB

        Don’t insult kale juice! Compared to watching NBC, drinking kale juice is like sipping a cold margarita on a sunny day at the beach!

        • Jack Deth

          Kale Juice:

          Right up there with Cauliflower Squeezings.

          And Brussels Sprout Nectar.

      At least kale juice has a positive benefit to offer.

  • peteee363

    looks like forward was an optomistic advertising campaign, backward seems more like it!

    • SineWaveII

      Well you have to remember that since BO leads with his behind, backward is FORWARD! to him.

  • http://twitter.com/Stimulus4U Marty Luther

    NBC was never the same after they canceled the A-Team. I pity the fools.

    • ked5

      they also cancelled star trek. never the brightest bulbs.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

        They also passed on House and Lost after developing them.

        • http://twitter.com/Stimulus4U Marty Luther

          Yeah, and all that news they passed on, too. Good point.

    • http://www.facebook.com/barry.sherman Barry Sherman

      Just thinking out loud, but they also kept SNL long since the show jumped the shark.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kathy-Norton/100001025420752 Kathy Norton

      Now that was funny!

  • stillinthe60s

    The NoBodyCares to watch network.

    • hoytsmack

      MSNBC-MuchoSuckyNoBodyCares to watch.

  • TRONRADIO

    NBC…Short for No….Body….Cares….

  • TocksNedlog

    Someone must’ve spilled curry in the mainframe.

  • RightThinking1

    The weird part is…, they are probably wondering what went wrong. It’s kind of the Zombie Network…, just an aimlessly staggering group of smelly people, uncertain where they are or why they are there. Their only instinct is to look for something to kill and feed on.

  • TocksNedlog

    Looks like they qualify for a bailout.

  • TocksNedlog

    Poor NBC. This never would have happened if it had just pissed itself.

    • Judy B

      Funny, I thought it was Narcissist Barack’s Channel

      • $22639970

        I’m stealing that!!

    • Trudy Henry Cannon

      AH HAH HAH HA HAH HAH HAH OOOOOH! LOL just wasn’t enough! Good one TocksNedlog:)

  • Love of Country

    It took a computer virus for people to finally learn to stay away from NBC?

    Well …. better late than never, I guess.

  • ratizbad

    NBC The Obama network ..SAD

  • ratizbad

    NBC= NATO broadcasting Central

  • Maxx

    Today’s lesson.

    Go to NBC to get hacked.

    Go to MSNBC to watch hacks.

  • DList

    I consider the normal content of NBC to be malware.

  • Barack Hussein Sharpton

    Brian Williams probably downloaded an infected video of his daughter masturbating to his work computer so that he could watch it during commercial breaks and then it spread to the network servers.

  • lainer51

    Wouldn’t have anything to do with their stellar performance in reporting the Trayvon Martin fiasco, would it?

    • SineWaveII

      Among other things. Such as the fact that if you’re looking for information to make sure that you are voting for the best person for president, you can’t believe one single word they have to say on the subject.

  • http://twitter.com/1RandiStarr Randi Starr

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer network…………..Hahahaahaahaha

  • WORSEKarma

    Hey, I think “Knight Train” is a FABULOUS idea!

  • ObnoxiousNox

    It’s NBC…so, nobody cares

    • marcellucci

      I get it….No Body Cares….NBC….

  • Richard Willey

    Im safe …lol

  • v.l.

    NBC has been the malware distributor for years!

      Couldn’t have happened to a better station….ahahahaha…

      • Cruz2016!!!

        OOOoooops should have read the comments below first…some of us think alike :)

  • $22639970

    I wish I could say that I’m sorry for their problems, but…….

  • carmachu

    Why would I visit NBC in the first place?

  • Randy C. Lindsey

    NBC…National Barack Channel

  • Shawn

    Well this really doesn’t hurt NBC cause don’t they own Univision?

    • SineWaveII

      No they are owned by private equity. NBC is partly (soon to be fully) owned by Comcast.

  • trixiewoobeans

    It’s Bush’s fault.

    • SineWaveII

      Darn him. When will we ever be free from that scourge? /sarc

  • http://www.google.com/profiles/david.dlpe daviddlpe

    NBC should have simply used ball point pens to fend off the hackers.

    • SineWaveII

      Classic!

  • Conservativesniper

    They are still in business for something besides sports? Oh well, I NEVER watch the little three networks anyway.

  • Shannon

    Good thing I don’t patronize NBC.

  • Whiteeagle

    I won’t feel okay … until the Entire Left-Wing Media and all it’s consorts are totally & immeasurably annihilated, never again to rise and propagandize the Public at large, with the purpose of being ‘Lulled’ into relinquishing Liberty and TRUE Justice …

    • nc

      No no no, you forgot something: First they must be completely exposed and humiliated and THEN totally & immeasurably annihilated, never again to rise and propagandize the Public at large (or anyone at all).

    • James McLarey

      Wow! Very impressive!

  • IBXNJ

    Reach more people yelling out the window!!!

  • James McLarey

    Actually just saw an ad for Rock Center with Brian Williams (an NBC show) on Bill O’Reilly’s show on Fox! Holy Moley!

    • Dick Beninya

      That’s like a racist, wrapped inside a racist riddle, wrapped inside a racist enigma, man!

  • James McLarey

    Anyone who doesn’t watch NBC is a racist.

  • kunner

    NBC(MSNBC) are more like Pravda than Pravda was at it’s best. Pravda was smart enough to know you can’t lie all the time.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/KDX6MKQ3V5OZ3RG5FXUQIAJ5DU John

    NB-who? I can’t remember when I last tuned to it. Maybe back in the ’80’s.

  • Dick Beninya

    Too big to fail. Send in the taxpayer $$$

  • Infinite_Indeterminism

    SPAM – kindly remove!

  • Terry Murphy

    I stopped watching NBC in ’07 when they were blatantly campaigning for Obama. But I can say that about ABC, CBS and CNN as well. They have all betrayed the public trust and should be held accountable. They are responsible for putting a fraud in the WH to destroy this nation. They should have their FCC licenses taken away and be put out of business.

  • Paul Citro

    I hope MSNBC is next.

  • lillymckim

    NBC=Obama.
    The “Obama Touch” Tiger Woods spoke of? Looks like it hit Tiger Woods yesterday too?
    The “Obama Touch”? I call it karma…

    Knight Train? Is that what Knight Industries will call the retrofitted SuperTrain???????? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supertrain

  • http://Twitter.com/jkerrysforehead John Kerry’s Forehead

    I don’t need malware to keep me from NBC.com. The lack of quality programming & ZERO journalistic integrity is enough for me.

  • notenoughtime

    NBC is malware!

    • BeeKaaay

      leftwingwackoism is malware.

  • $1014973

    Thank God I read this. I was just about to head there.

  • Guest

    NBC has been infecting America for years,
    with a subversive agenda.
    Poetic justice the Comrades became infected.

  • hoytsmack

    Do you mean to tell me that the hacks are being hacked? Say it isn’t so!

  • DJLugoff

    My heart bleeds… who watches them? Oh, I get it now this is the reason so many trolls and sickos are showing up online where the rest of us post.

  • BeeKaaay

    Nothing but Barack Channel got hacked? By whom? Anonymous only hacks non-leftwingwacko sites.
