  • Ravens telecast a painful reminder of how bad CBS Sports can be

    Ravens telecast a painful reminder of how bad CBS Sports can be
    After nine months away from Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf, I forgot how maddening it was to watch the second-string unit from CBS Sports try to telecast a Ravens game. Players misidentified, random images inexplicably popping up on the screen, key...
  • CBS, Ian Eagle almost made the Ravens-Chiefs game watchable - almost

    CBS, Ian Eagle almost made the Ravens-Chiefs game watchable - almost
    Let's be frank, life is too short to waste much time on a sports telecast as boring as Sunday's football game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Kansas City Chiefs. First, much of the blame should go to the two teams: They were awful. The Ravens easily...

    Some final TV thoughts on TBS, Orioles, Yankees, Ripken, Johnson, Smoltz
    Here are some final thoughts from a very tired TV/media critic who didn't miss an inning of Orioles playoff baseball while covering the rest of a huge and sprawling beat. This week, it ranged from the debut of ABC's "Nashville," to  Joe Biden  smirking ...
  • Super Bowl TV: Good game, nasty ads, pathetic half-time show

    Super Bowl TV: Good game, nasty ads, pathetic half-time show
    I was supposed to review NBC's telecast of the Super Bowl itself. You know, what kind of job did Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and Bob Costas do? And I will deliver a short, fast version of that. But you cannot review the Super Bowl without talking...
  • Z on Ravens TV: Watching this loss on CBS made it even worse

    Z on Ravens TV: Watching this loss on CBS made it even worse
    Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf are not my favorite announcers – far from it. But give them and their producers credit Sunday: While it wasn’t their main story line, they did include in their opening remarks Sunday a description the Baltimore...

    CBS' Dierdorf expects noise from Ravens fans to rattle Texans
    At M&T Bank Stadium, it's all about the noise. So says Dan Dierdorf, the CBS commentator who'll work Sunday's AFC playoff between the Ravens and Houston Texans. Dierdorf believes the fans hold the wild card in Baltimore's march to the Super Bowl. "The...
  • Ravens on CBS: Beyond pre-game agitation of Ndamukong Suh, a better telecast

    Ravens on CBS: Beyond pre-game agitation of Ndamukong Suh, a better telecast
    Once you got past the pre-game show and the outrageous attempt by CBS Sports to use the telecast to try to rehabilitate the reputation of Detroit Lions stomper Ndamukong Suh, TV coverage of the Baltimore Ravens 20-13 victory over the Houston Texans wasn&...
  • Ravens TV: A painful game to watch, but not because of CBS Sports

    Ravens TV: A painful game to watch, but not because of CBS Sports
    As appealing as it might be to vent my own frustration and play to the rage of tens of thousands of Ravens fans by ripping the TV coverage of Baltimore’s agonizing 23-20 loss to the New England Patriots, facts are facts. And the fact of the matter...
  • Improved offense hinges on consistent offensive line play for Ravens

    The Ravens appear to have found the right formula for winning on offense, but it has as much to do with the improved play of the offensive line as it does a change in philosophy. The key word in the NFL is consistency and once the Ravens found it on...
  • Z on Ravens TV: Another lazy, sloppy telecast from CBS Sports

    Z on Ravens TV: Another lazy, sloppy telecast from CBS Sports
    By David Zurawik The Baltimore Sun At least they brought some energy to the Ravens telecast. Give Bill Macatee and Steve Tasker that Sunday. It could have been worse – much worse. CBS Sports could have used Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf to cover...

    Z on TV talking Chelsea Clinton, Christiane Amanpour and more on CNN
    I'm coming back to work after a much-needed week away, and I am starting with a busy day Sunday that opens in Washington at CNN's "Reliable Sources." Host Howard Kurtz has a very strong lineup this week. Here's his description from the CNN website:...
