My Telethon Can Kick Your Telethon's Ass

The networks are both teaming up and ganging up to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.

NBC Universal surprised its broadcast peers earlier in the week by announcing a one-hour telethon, which will air Friday night on NBC, CNBC and MSNBC.

Meanwhile, ABC, CBS and Fox, possibly annoyed by NBC's inward thinking plan, are teaming to produce their own telethon, hosted by Ellen Degeneres. But by late Wednesday, NBC, UPN and the WB had all agreed to air it as well.

Not to be outdone, MTV Networks announced plans for a September 10th fund-raiser across all of its channels. And Telemundo, another Peacock property, will airr their own fund-raiser en espanol this Friday night.

Nice work, guys.

  • No mention of Jerry Lewis' MDA telethon this weekend. That's like mentioning all the bowl games EXCEPT the Rose Bowl...
