NHL Inks Lucrative TV Deal With TLC

NHL on TLC logoNEW YORK CITY- In a recent push to prove it is still a viable sport, the NHL has signed a 10-year TV deal with TLC (The Learning Channel), which is the channel that airs reality shows about topics you wouldn’t normally be interested in. العاب الربح من الانترنت

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced the signing in between his shifts as a waiter at Applebee’s. “It’s going to be great for our sport. الروليت العربي Ever since ESPN dropped us in 2004 the league has tried to get back on the big stage, and well, this is the closest to the big stage we could get.”

The NHL has had some modest scrutiny in the past due to misguided labor negotiations that led to the cancellation of the 2004-2005 season and the shortening of the 2012-2013 season to a mere 48 games.

“Fans want a sport that’s going to be there every season for their enjoyment, and we have fallen short as of late to supply our fans with that stability. It’s frustrating for everyone involved, but now we can reach a larger audience and win back our fans,” added Bettman. روليت اون لاين للايفون “Both of them.”

The deal with TLC includes a weekly studio show that will feature highlights from the week’s slate of games, as well as interviews with the stars of the NHL from past hockey greats and current TLC stars, such as Honey Boo Boo and the sister wives from Sister Wives.

“Who wouldn’t want to see Honey Boo Boo talk hockey with Sidney Crosby? Her show is super popular and would bring some great publicity to our league,” stated Bettman.

The plan is to run 3 games a week with the studio show to air after new episodes of Long Island Medium and A Baby Story.

“I understand that the usual TLC audience demographic isn’t really the same as the NHL audience demographic, mainly because there is no NHL demographic, but we are hoping the TLC viewers will think we are some weird Canadian reality show or something,” said Bettman after refilling drinks at table 9. “We need this, because if this TLC thing doesn’t work out I may have to move back home with my parents.”

The NHL has decided to begin its season along side the new season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo which should be later this fall.
