It didn’t go over with his broadcasting partner, Chris Collinsworth, or social media, and rightfully so:
I didn't just hear Al Michaels say the Giants are coming off a worse week than Harvey Weinstein. Did that really just happen?

Al Michaels is what happens when you surround yourself with people that routinely laugh at your bad jokes.#SNF

Al Michaels just tried making a Harvey Weinstein joke. It didn't work.

Al Michaels is probably the best play-by-play guy in history. But boy… that was a big, big lapse in judgment.
