“Can you imagine a newspaper’s living section repeating all of its articles just a few months later? Throughout our industry, increased competition and viewer choice is spurring more original summer fare.”
Ken Solomon, president, Fine Living Network
“I’m already getting grumbles from readers who don’t like losing their NBC reruns to For Love or Money and the aptly named Dog Eat Dog. If you can launch an American Idol over the summer, why not?”
Joanne Weintraub, TV, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“Of course. For the networks, it’ll stop at least some of the audience from defecting to cable. For the audience, it’s almost certainly preferable to reruns. (I hope.)”
Marc Allan, TV/radio editor, Indianapolis Star
