NBC says Hollywood model needs to be revised, blames strike, changing media habits (us!)


Thanks to striking writers, who are striking thanks to your changing media/entertainment consumption habits, NBC says this is a great time to completely re-think the way television is produced. No more pilot seasons, no more song-and-dance to prospective advertisers, no more glut. No more Hollywood excess, in other words.

Pat yourselves on the back, writers and young people. Your move away from watching Must See TV as it airs to playing games, watching DVDs or DVR’d content is finally being felt in Hollywood.

Also, NBC and Apple kissed and made up.
