NBC’s having a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day

All is not well today in the NBC universe. For starters, NBC.com is apparently the victim of a hack job. Prospective visitors to the site risk exposure to malware:

Confirming NBC [dot] com must have been popped. JS file ON the site is trying to include a iframe from known malware site.

NBC’s “there’s definitely a situation”. Indeed – a hacking situation. mashable.com/2013/02/21/nbc… Via @mashbusiness

But the “situation” gets worse. According to Deadline Hollywood, NBC has finished up sweeps in fifth place among 18-49 year olds. We know: hard to believe considering quality programming like “1600 Penn,” not to mention its sterling record when it comes to journalistic integrity. Needless to say, Twitterers are serving up some tasty mockery:
