More MMA On Network Television

A response to The Writers Guild of America's strike:

NBC might join forces with an MMA organization to put together some shows, either in prime time or late night, during time slots that ordinarily would have gone to scripted programming. The best option might be to have MMA during the time slot that currently goes to Saturday Night Live, which will be in reruns until its writers return to work.

Meanwhile, UFC is reportedly talking to CBS about putting some of its shows on network television.

Whether it actually happens or not, the mere fact that multiple television networks are considering showing mixed martial arts is another sign of the sport's extraordinary growth.
