While writing that last post I came across another story on that LA Times blog: 'My Name Is Earl' creator is OK with being 'thrown off the Titanic.'
There's some great quotes from the creator of Earl and some amazingly stupid ones from NBC. Since I was a little TV obsessed kid if anyone had asked I would have informed them that NBC was my network of choice. Still is, technically - I prefer their Today show over Good Morning America, I like Brian Williams on the evening news, and for years now I've enjoyed more shows on NBC than any other network.
ABC is starting to give them a run for their money, catching up fast, but if you look at my DVR there's still a bit more NBC series than any other network...I give it another season or two under Ben Silverman and that will no longer be the case.
