NBC Going Green . . . Again

Reader Rob sends in the joke-of-the-day: NBC’s “green week”:

NBC is going “green” yet again this year and shows like “Lipstick Jungle”, “Kath & Kim”, “My Own Worst Enemy”, “Knight Rider” and “Law & Order” will all feature “green” plot lines during the week of November 16th. The whole event kicks off with the Sunday Night Football broadcast and I wanted to share some of what NBC plans for the pregame and halftime shows, as well as the game itself (DAL-WAS). Via NBC PR….

Green week officially launches on NBC’s “Football Night in America during the Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins game. Commentators, including Bob Costas, Chris Collinsworth, Dan Patrick, Jerome Bettis, and Tiki Barber, will discuss how they each personally green their own routines.
On November 22, NBC will air a carbon neutral Notre Dame and Syracuse game, but the competition won’t just be on the field. For the entire month of November, both campuses will participate in the NBC Universal Green Your Routine challenge, hosted on Students, alumni, faculty, and fans will have the opportunity to take eco-challenges and help reduce carbon emissions and save energy. NBC Universal will donate $10,000 to the winning school, which will be designated to their campus sustainability efforts.
In addition, NBC Sports will host an online video contest, in which students from Notre Dame and Syracuse will produce short commercials promoting sustainable practices. The best submissions will be displayed on the NBC Sports website,

Not only are Notre Dame and Syracuse “carbon neutral,” but “bowl game neutral,” as well. 
And who knEw Knight Rider hadn’t been cancelled yet?
