Analysis: In the Battle for TV's Future, The Networks Start Fighting Back

Kevin Bacon

When Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly stood in front of reporters in January and proclaimed the death of pilot season, he drew a good amount of ribbing from the competition.

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.

Question: I'm sure you have tons of letters in your mailbag about the "twist" on The Good Wife. For once, this was not over-hyped at all. I've always stood by the idea that the creators of shows are artists who have the right to do whatever they want with their characters, and we should be more angry with gratuitous plot twists or inconsistent character development than things that just make us sad. It is a "melodrama," after all, and entertainment does not mean that you will be made happy all the time. read more

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I am so disappointed in The Walking Dead. I cannot believe that they have indicated that there is an interest on the part of Daryl towards Beth. That is just ick. She is 17 and while I don't know what his age is supposed to be, I've always assumed his character is at least mid 30s. Let me repeat, ick! And it's not as if she is a mature 17-year-old, her character comes across as a complete child to me with just as much growing needed as Carl. In fact, Carl seems more mature to me at times. Why would the writers go there? All I can think is how perverted it is for Daryl to express an interest in a 17-year-old girl, and a character that I once loved is now bordering along the lines of a pedophile. My sister is so upset she thinks she might fast-forward over any story lines that involve Daryl. I know this is a TV show, but all I could think of was people's horrified reaction when Miley Cyrus twerked on Robin Thicke. Where is that horror now? On the upside, I've been reading your column for years and have always greatly enjoyed your thoughts and opinions even when they have differed from my own. Thanks for allowing me to vent. — KC
