Whither NBC?

This past week, NBC once again failed to crack the top 10 in the New York market with a single show. Ooof.

NBC’s absence at the top of the charts comes on a day when the New York Post is reporting that NBC Universal chief Jeff Zucker will walk away from the network with an exit package worth between $30 million and $40 million.
