    Kid Nation looks totally bizarre and oddly compelling: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/fall_preview_2007/ and http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/showtracker/2007/05/cbs_kid_nation_.html

    Cavemen will be gone in 13 weeks or less.

    I have a feeling once the therapy doll session airs, you'll change your tune.

    Oh I'll watch. But this is the perfect example of going to the well one too many times. It's a funny ad campaign. It's not a sustainable series. It's funny in 60 seconds. Coming up with enough good material for 30 minutes? A lot tougher.

    I have no clue what this means to the thread at hand, but its funny how media specialists say network TV is in a longer state of decline than newspapers and this thread exists and thrives.

    Have no idea what I mean by that, but I thought I'd share.

    Same reason we talk about newspapers even though they're supposedly dying: Because we're fascinated watching clueless people kill what should be thriving industries.

    No doubt.

    I guess what I meant is that maybe all the sky-is-falling talk about newspapers is a bit overstated at times. Network TV was supposed to be dead 10 years ago. I heard an analyst on a XM business show say that network TV is hemorraging ad revenue at least as bad, if not worse, than print.

    Doesn't mean newspapers are thriving by any means. They aren't. Probably doesn't mean network TV is thriving either. But both will likely survive in some form.

    Anyway, when's Junction Boys on?

    Speaking of clueless people killing thriving industries, here's a link to the Fox fall lineup. Still, I think NBC acts worse than Fox at times.


    Of the seven shows, I think only Kelsey Grammer's stands any chance of being a hit. But that's just me. :)

    Dynamite Magazine!!!!! Wow, Bubbler. That's one from the archives. :eek:

    BYH nailed this thread earlier. There are no more short-sighted, clueless, reactionary executives in Corporate America than television execs. Incapable of taking any kind of risks -- calculated or otherwise, reactive, lemmingesque. No far-sighted vision and they wonder why their audiences are fleeing in droves.

    These guys make newspaper execs look like Warren Buffett.

    The soap "Dirty Sexy Money" on ABC looks interesting. Nothing like spelling out the premise in the title, and it's got a star-studded cast to boot - Donald Sutherland, Jill Clayburgh, Peter Krause, Billy Baldwin, Samaire Armstrong and Victoria Pratt. Yum. :D


    And I'm not just gonna dismiss "Bionic Woman" without taking a good, close look at the new Jaime Sommers (if that is in fact the character's name). British actress Michelle Ryan (formerly of "EastEnders") plays the lead and here you'll find a nice picture of her: ***NSFW!!!*** Va va voom. :D :D
