Published December 9, 2012
The Albany Times-Union’s Pete Dougherty on his Twitter account wrote, “CBS learned from its error of last week and led its pregame show with the Dallas Cowboys tragedy.” Deadspin’s Timothy Burke wrote, “Looks like CBS is responding to the criticism of their tone-deaf response to Belcher by doing the first ten minutes about DUIs.” SI.com’s Richard Deitsch wrote, “The NFL Today treated its viewers like adults at the top of its show today. As it should be.”
ESPN’s Frank Caliendo reported on his Twitter feed that the net would be "pushing back the ESPN comedy segment another week because of tragic NFL news” (TWITTER.com, 12/8). The segment was to feature Caliendo playing ESPN’s Bob Ley and Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones (ESPN).
