Jeff Zucker, Gavin Polone

Television producer Gavin Polone is not keeping quiet about his feelings towards new CNN President Jeff Zucker.

"I have specific reasons to dislike the guy, and his ignominious de-jobbing at the end of a bad run of failure at NBCUniversal was a happy event for me," Polone writes in an open letter featured in The Hollywood Reporter. "Given that, you can guess how displeased I was upon hearing that my nemesis had been chosen to lead CNN."

The New Episodes Are Coming....

Hey, all. So, we just wrapped shooting for the season, and we had a blast! We've got some great new episodes ready to roll out this summer, very excited. I was just talking to Jim Gaffigan, Mike Bunin and Jamie Kaler, and we were all saying how much fun we had shooting the latest installments of TBS' My Boys. Maybe it was all the caffeine and booze, but I seriously don't think I've ever laughed as hard as I did working with these guys. We had some great guest stars, we brought back our favorite directors, and basically just kept on doin' what we did last year, only more of it. Think you're really gonna dig the new stuff. Hope you're all looking forward to the new episodes as much as I am. See you Monday, July 30, at 10pm/ET! read more

ABC HALTS NEW SERIES

ABC has halted production on Heather Graham's Emily's Reasons Why Not, which premiered last week to so-so ratings and was quickly yanked from this week's schedule in favor of a repeat  of The Bachelor.

That's the television business." read more
