In a press release sent out on Tuesday, NBC officials announced that they they will only air Olympic events that the USA is participating in, and that re-runs of their old hit series “City Guys” will be played at all other times.
“We’re trying to build nationalism within the states” said one high ranking NBC official. “We have a presidential election coming up, and our economy is in the crapper. Even if we aren’t actually superior to other countries, we think that media isolationism is going to make everyone feel like we’re number one”
LeBron James was so upset about the situation, that he is reportedly considering leaving the U.S. Basketball team.
“Dude, I loved “City Guys”. I never get to watch that show, and now they’re playing it non-stop for the next week and a half? It’s a real slap in the face, and I don’t know if I can be here while my family and friends get to enjoy a “City Guys” marathon at home.”
NBC plans to implement their new television schedule starting August 2nd.
