  1. my brother who watches ABC News said the Olympics coverage is appaling. He said they will show the beginning of a race and then the end of it in photo stills. He say he may give up watching the ABC News.

    1. The Good Fight is one of those shows though they use as an example where overnight only tells a part of the story. Through catch up, it ratings seems to triple.
      Last week it’s consolidated easily outdated it’s overnight and its online catch seems to do well too.
