Does anyone remember the debacle with the Tonight Show and Jay Leno?
You forgot that NBC replaced five hours of dramatic programming at 10 pm with a “new” Leno show? What a good idea that was.
And now we have the cancellation of All My Children and One Life to Live. Cost savings!!! What the audience really wants is unscripted programming! Based on our highly scientific polling of The View’s audience. Even if the audience goes down, the programming is so very, very much cheaper. Winning!
Wait! That was some left over dialogue from the Leno show debacle.
Just saying ;-0
