Breaking News From NESN: Garrett May Consider Running for President of Larry Lucchino's Nation ... Hazel Mae Will Have All the Developments on Whatever-Happened-to-Sports Desk

Lucchino Talks About TV Reality

�Yeah, I noticed that,� Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino said on WEEI�s Dennis and Callahan show this morning when he was asked about NESN going right to Sox Appeal after last night�s game in lieu of the Extra Innings postgame show. �I understood what happened last night, I wanted to prolong the joy of that victory and see the replay and hear the analysis, when you have a game like that with the theatrical comeback and all of that, you say �let�s savor it.� But I do understand that with a new show, Sox Appeal was making its debut last night, and they were eager to get the highest number of people to watch it last night. I don�t think you�re going to see that as a pattern, where a show of some sort comes on immediately afterwards, displacing the postgame show.

�We have stuffed a lot of baseball into the NESN daily or weekly schedule, and I think you�ll see plenty of that. But there�s also an effort to diversify, to come up with some interesting programming, that�s both artistically and commercially successful. But you�re right. We�ve got to keep our eyes on the prize here, and recognize that Red Sox baseball is what drives the NESN subscribers, and I think you�ll see they�ll always be recognition of that fact. Just cut us a little slack that this was the debut of a highly anticipated [show].�
