Fox also has a reservoir of goodwill built up among the media that should help cushion the blow a bit. After all, it’s the network that nurtured Glee into a hit, hasn’t given up on Fringe, and actually gave Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse two seasons to (not) find an audience. There’s also no Jeff Zucker or Ben Silverman type to serve as a lightning rod for viewer and/or media frustration with the network — just the opposite, in fact. The network’s entertainment president, Kevin Reilly, is well-respected as an advocate of quality shows: Before championing Glee, he nurtured The Office, My Name Is Earland Friday Night Lights at NBC.
Interesting analysis of the cancellation of Lone Star by FOX and what it might mean for the network. Basically it comes down to, they have American Idol, they’re fine.
I still have such a immediate ‘but it’s FOX!’ reaction to shows on the network because of the way Firefly was treated, but maybe its undeserved. They have been good to Fringe, though part of me wonders for how much longer.
I have never completed a collection in my life. Until tonight. I will now show you the fruits of my labor: a complete set of all pre-re-designed bills under $100 (not including the $1, because it was never redesigned). Tonight I finally got the $100 - he was tough.
