We reported not too long ago that NBC planned to lose $250 million on the Olympics, due to some genius decisions made by network. Well lucky for them, the grandiose loss is $51 million less than originally predicted. As a result, Dick Ebersol, the man responsible for NBC’s bidding disaster, is being praised for doing a “great job.” Wow. All you have to do for company accolades is lose $199 million. I might move up the corporate ladder faster than I thought.
