So Much for American Telenovelas March 1, 2007

Posted by David Card in Media.

It looks like MyNetworkTV (remember them? they’re the Fox stations jilted by the WB-UPN merger) is giving up on the nightime, el cheapo soaps-strips strategy. What would you do if you had a very small broadcast network? That’s quite a challenge. You can’t go to the absolute bottom with raunchy reality shows, ‘cuz you can’t do nudity or cussin’ on broadcast. I dunno if old syndicated shows would really compete with cable primetime. How about re-running Oprah, Ellen, and Dr. Phil in primetime? Sort of a poor-man’s working-woman’s DVR…(credit where it’s due: that’s a riff off of Joe’s gag).
