Reilly was making the case for torching the broadcast primetime model as we know it — starting with the annual tradition of everyone developing everything all at once. It was a grand pronouncement, particularly in an industry that talks big but can rarely turn on a dime. Nonetheless, change is afoot, and Reilly's not the only one flipping the script.
