NBC’s Silverman Speaks

Jul 21, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Ben Silverman, who has been NBC’s programming chief for a year, says that while NBC remains in the ratings basement, the network has altered its costs, engaged its advertisers and created an “unbelievable win” at the bottom line, Television Week reports. In an exclusive interview, Mr. Silverman says it’s not fair to judge his performance in a year dominated by the Writers Guild of America strike. “I think what we should be judged on, and what I will happily stand up and be judged on, will be ‘Kings’ and ‘Kath and Kim’ and ‘My Own Worst Enemy’ and ‘Robinson Crusoe’ and ‘The Philanthropist,’ he tells TV Week. ‘And as you see those shows come to market, and the new shows that we’ll be bringing to market, you will see that same quality level that I had as a producer.”
