“If you were to take out American Idol, their problem is that, other than Wanda at Large and maybe Oliver Beene, they could have no returning shows that they’ve premiered on their schedule this year.” … “They need something scripted to work in a really big way so they can make a night of it.” … “If you take American Idol off their schedule they are in a distant fourth place.” … “Fox had too much reality this year, but it saved their ass.”
