Hmm, It's Eight O'Clock, Time To Watch Some Non-Scripted TV
How stupid does NBC think we are? They're in fourth place and bleeding money and desperate to lower costs. But instead of just admitting that, NBC pretends that America has spoken and insisted that they DON'T want to watch any sitcoms or dramas at 8 p.m. anymore. Sure, "Dancing With The Stars" and "American Idol" and "Survivor" have been big hits for the other networks and "Deal Or No Deal" is doing good for NBC. But there ARE a few current hits on at 8 p.m. -- shows like "Prison Break," "Gilmore Girls," "7th Heaven" (the longest running drama after "L&O"), "Ugly Betty," "Jericho," "House" (which just moved to 9 p.m.) and on and on.
