Ausiello: I'm trying! I did manage to get UPN entertainment president Dawn Ostroff to comment on the rumored Season 2 tweaks the network asked Rob to make to broaden the show's appeal. Ostroff conceded that she requested "some minor changes," but denied that Mars was being "dumbed down" to make it more compatible with Wednesday night lead-in America's Next Top Model. "I think the reason the show has been so successful is because we let [Rob] go with his passion and his vision. We would never take that away from him." Better not.
