Networks obsession with ratings continues to cause them to shoot themselves in the foot,
Boxing channels are actually LOSING potential ratings when they schedule two competing fights that overlap time periods! You would think that these network execs could move a fight to the next week so that everyone gets an opportunity to see the fight without having it overlap with another fight on a different network. The problem is, my logical idea makes too much sense to the idiots at HBO and Showtime.
Sure, people can VCR, DVR, or Tivo the fights for later. But it's not fair to others to have to choose between rival networks showing fights at the same time.
How can overlapping fights on different networks be anything but a bad thing?
