Dear NBC:

An open letter to NBC and the people they hire to announce the National Dog Show:

I love watching the show every year on Thanksgiving. It’s become a great tradition at my house. But can I offer a suggestion?

Would it be too much to ask that the announcers NOT talk while the winners are being announced? As soon as the judge announces the best in group, the announcers start yammering so we can’t hear the rest of the results. You have 2 hours to fill. Surely, you can take a break for the eight minutes it takes to announce the full block of winners in each group and the Best in Show.

I’d also love to see more of the show. Cutting it to two hours just really isn’t doing the show justice!

Just my two cents worth,
