It's time once again for my annual end-of-summer rant to the industry, a tradition in which I hope to shake up the status quo. For years, the word "change" was my mantra in these commentaries, as I pushed for a more aggressive embrace of corporate change. This tradition dates back to my days at CBS in the late 1970s, and my presentations to both my colleagues and to the community focusing on the importance of embracing the then-new technology of cable-TV. Months ago, I took the word "change" out of my vocabulary, writingRead More

I tried to give TNT’s “Dallas” the benefit of the doubt throughout its run – and I will continue to do so until I am told that the show is officially over. How can I not after investing so much time in it? I still believe in this saga, and I still feel there are interesting stories to tell. Just not the stories we have been handed so far. I would like TNT to continue the show, but only if the network is determined to make it better. If TNT cancels “Dallas,” I hope it will at least commission a movie that satisfyingly wraps it up once and for all. And while I’m compiling a “Dallas” wish list, if TNT cancels it wouldn’t it be great if CBS picked it up, hired a new writing team that understands what made the show so appealing in the first place, fixed everything that went wrong with it and gave it another go – on Friday nights? I have to think the CBS audience would enjoy it all over again if “Dallas” were done right.Read More
