Comcast reaches 'worst company' Final Four

Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) will face probably its toughest foe ever in the Consumerist Worst Company in America competition when it takes on BP in the Final Four. The other match is not cable related, with Bank of America and Ticketmaster going at it. Of the four, only BP, which degraded its reputation as it degraded the quality of life in the Gulf of Mexico last summer, is a newcomer.

"Year after year we field consumer complaints about these three companies and their apparent lack of concern for consumer choice and customer service," Meghann Marco, executive editor of stated in a news release. "Unless something drastically changes in the way these perennial semifinalists conduct their business, it's likely they'll be top seeds in the tournament for many years to come."

Comcast, which won the uncoveted Golden Poo Award last year, beat AT&T to reach the Final Four. BP despoiled Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) in a Sweet 16 round.
