March Madness and NBC: Where’s a rerun when you need one?

TheOffice(US)1-05 NBC got a lot of grief for its primetime presentation of the Winter Olympics last month, but I’m struggling a lot more with what it’s done this month: airing fresh episodes of its Thursday comedies opposite March Madness on CBS.

My compulsion to watch those shows as soon as possible, DVRs be damned, made me miss The Night of Gus Johnson.

I like it better when sports and comedy work in sync with each other, as in the above photo.
