They are cheap to produce. Not as cheap as "Reality Shows" (where the 
performers show up for free), but a LOT cheaper than dramas or sitcoms, 
and especially good quality documentaries.

NBC has gone from #1 to dead last, but the networks always seem to move 
up and down a lot.

Comcast won't help things, they make G.E. (self-admitted felons) look good 
by comparison.

The Comcast takeover of NBC is not in best interests of the public, who 
supposedly own the airwaves they make their profits from.

But money talks in the USA, and nothing any of us can do will change that.

Let me get this straight: If I were to be convicted of even a minor felony I 
would be unable to own a firearm, but G.E. admits to multiple major 
felonies, and is permitted to make (and thus to own) nuclear weapons.
