    Liam McHugh was hosting PL shows last season.

    Who cares when the video hit was recorded? How do you even know this? Do you work at NBC?

    You’re a boob.

    Premier League is indeed falling down the pecking order at NBC Sports Group. The ratings are what they are: peaked until the next generation of viewers grow up to be counted among the ages 18-34 demographic.

    At least Premier League won’t be pre-empted by Formula 1 anymore because the FIA turned down the modest rights fee offered by NBC to accept a barter time agreement to go to ESPN2 so that the FIA could retain more control of digital (over-the-top) rights.

    Also note that Season #5 is the first season for which NBC has allowed host Rebecca Lowe to skip the Monday night Premier League telecasts when United Soccer League is in season. Liam McHugh now hosts on Premier League on NBCSN on Monday nights.

    Rebecca Lowe now lives in the Sacramento, California area. She commutes 2500 miles each way to her job at NBC Sports Group in Stamford, Connecticut each week, leaving Sacramento Thursday night on a redeye flight, returning home on Sunday evening on a 6pm flight out of JFK airport in New York. JetBlue flies nonstop between SMF and JFK. Ms. Lowe looked tired and stressed out during the pre-match show last Friday because her 8-hour commute took her to the studio about 3 hours before air time.

    The “breaking news” video hit by Rebecca Lowe that @NBCSportsSoccer posted on Twitter on Monday at 10am Eastern Time, about 90 minutes after @Everton tweeted the announcement of the sacking of Ronald Koeman, was recorded on Sunday afternoon before Ms. Lowe left the studio for JFK airport, about 15 hours before Koeman was sacked and 17 hours before the video was posted on Twitter.
