Now, panel, how will NBC win back viewers? Adam Felber?

ADAM FELBER: They'll go all in and start offering nightly news classic wherein Brian Williams delivers stories about events that happened some time in the past, starting Monday with Japan attacks.


SAGAL: Charlie Pierce?

CHARLIE PIERCE: Having learned its lessons from its Olympic coverage, the network is planning to launch a new morning wakeup news show "Yesterday."


SAGAL: And Paula Pell?

PAULA PELL: I think they're going to go edgy. They're going to go with the reality show that's a fixed camera on a bunch of animals from a closed zoo, living in a foreclosed condo and it's called "The Food Chain."


CARL KASELL: Well, if NBC does any of those things, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Adam Felber, Charlie Pierce and Paula Pell.


SAGAL: Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal. We'll see you in Portland, Maine next week.
