2014 was ridiculous. Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers? I bet 80% of the audience had no idea who those guys were.

Four? What is the fourth one? BBC World News is the only "cable news channel" that has much credibility to me. But the BBC reports are also available on a lot of public TV stations in the U.S. No...

You're right. I don't watch much. Only Daytona and maybe the course at Watkins Glen. I'm one of the occasional viewers that NASCAR wanted to attract a decade or so ago when they were trying to give...

The author did write, "I went to Verizon and got another small Fios box for the bedroom TV, which adds $10 to my monthly Verizon tab." So it sounds as though the author paid $10 per month for each...

I think there's a typo in the thread title. It's supposed to be "NASCAR on MSNBC", right?

Who gets the announcing duties, Joe Scarborough or Rachel Maddow?
