Alan Parchment: “America’s Got Talent” copies the names of NFL players’ choir; The game pass becomes NFL +

Exploring the senses I want to know: when will Isaiah McKenzie and three former Buffalo Bills NFL players on the NBC show “America’s Got Talent”?

An NBC spokesman said Judges Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara and Simon Cowell (Howie Mandel was not voting there) did not know the date of their next appearance after Bill Withers appeared last week. the classic “Lean on Me”.

If the choir performs next, you hope the program will do a better job of identifying players than it did last Tuesday.

No player was identified, not even a spokesman, former Bills defender Bryan Scott.

Host Terry Crews asked several players, but not all, which teams they play or played for.

McKenzie was not one of the shows that received a local rating of 5.6 on WGRZ-TV (Channel 2), which is a good show this season. The estimate for Sunday night’s rehearsal is not yet available. A rating point in Western New York equals 6,375 households.

The player who told Crews he was Bill was former defender Dwayne Wright.

I didn’t remember him. Bills’ representative told me that Wright had drawn Bills from Fresno in the fourth round and played in Buffalo from 2007-2008. He plunged 29 yards to 94 yards and caught three baits for 17 yards.

Other former Bills included Scott, a Penn State alumnus who played for the team from 2007 to 2012 and had four interruptions in Buffalo last season; and tight Michael Gaines, who played for Central Florida and scored 215 yards for Billina in 2007.

“AGT” veteran watchers knew the group was moving on to the next round because they were the last to perform. The show usually records the best or most interesting act at the end of a two-hour rehearsal.

McKenzie was not highlighted, but he stood out in the front row for one reason. Apparently he didn’t get the dress code information. His trousers were lighter than the dark trousers worn by the rest of the choir.

Here is a list of other players in the choir identified by the NBC public:

Willie Yarbary, USFL (formerly Chargers); Bryant D. McKinnie Jr., Minnesota; Cameron Newton, Atlanta security, not a quarterback; Leonard Weaver III, Seattle, Minnesota; Stephen Pierce, Cleveland; Nick Roach, Raiders; Tully Banta-Cain, New England.

The NFL is expected to report a change in its streaming plans next month.

This removes the Game Pass and replaces it with an NFL + that has more content.

Monthly and annual purchase options are available to purchase the service. Bill’s pre-season games are still streaming in the Bills app.

However, when the regular season begins, games will be streamed through NFL + and will only be available if you are in an area where the game is on local television.

Bills season ticket holders receive NFL + for free, as does the Game Pass.

I wasn’t surprised that WUTV Sinclair Broadcasting, a local affiliate of Fox, did not hold a special committee hearing on Thursday afternoon, January 6th. After all, Sinclair is generally considered a conservative owner and supporter of former President Donald Trump.

However, I was surprised that WNED-TV, the local public service broadcaster, opted for the “Inspector Morse” episode and children’s program instead of listening.

Here is an explanation from the station representative on how the public service broadcasters intend to cover the remaining hearings, including Tuesdays: “If there are daily hearings, we will broadcast them in the WBFO, but not necessarily in the WNED PBS. We feel it is important to offer our PBS Kid selection in the morning and afternoon as a resource for the WNED PBS educational and alternative program, so although the hearings began during the non-child content, they were expected to reach that time, so don’t fan them (Thursday ). If the events are broadcast at the best time, we will generally broadcast them on both the WNED PBS and the WBFO, as we did at the Committee’s first hearing on 6 January.
