"There are too many reality shows and not enough quality shows. Does anyone see the connection between rising reality ratings and the mass exodus from networks?"

"It's taken the broadcast industry a lot of time to face reality. Their existing business model is unsustainable. They have to rethink the value they create for their shareholders, the value and relevance they provide for advertisers and the way they work with talent and production companies. There are not many businesses facing such a challenging future. Let's hope they are prepared to evolve and stop living in the past."
