    What was Jimmy Kimmel thinking? ABC Upfront Presentation

    Jimmy Kimmel Demolishes ABC’s Upfronts - ArtsBeat Blog - NYTimes.com


    If ABC is so confident in its new fall shows, he asked, why is it announcing them at the same time it announces the midseason shows that will replace those fall shows? “This show ‘Shark Tank’ has the word tank right in the title,” he said.

    To the ABC advertisers, Mr. Kimmel said, “Every year we lie to you and every year you come back for more. You don’t need an upfront. You need therapy. We completely lie to you, and then you pass those lies onto your clients.”

    In closing, Mr. Kimmel said, “I think all our shows are going to work this year. I really do.” He paused. “I don’t, really.”

    Before departing the stage, he said: “The important thing to remember is: who cares, it’s not your money.”
    OK, these jokes might work with the public, but you are a COMPLETE Moron to say those things to folks who are looking to invest in your product, and pay to advertise on your network...

    And if you care, here is the announced ABC fall Schedule....

    Conan & Leno made fun of NBC and its programming all the time....Then again, maybe that's why NBC is doing so bad .

    I just read the Fall schedule. I'm shocked to see Ugly Betty has been moved to Friday nights. Isn't that the kiss of death? I thought that show was doing really well.
    Also, glad to see Better Off Ted is coming back.

    TOTALLY true. Conan always rips NBC and talks about how they're doing so ba din the ratings. He does it almost every single show!

    (I'm a huge fan of Conan, by the way)
