Crazy like a Fox entertainment president?

Quote of the day from a Fox exec.

Crazy like a Fox entertainment president?

One of the milder amusements of the network portion of the TV critics' confab is getting network suits to take potshots at one another.

Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly -- who held the same job at NBC before being shoved aside for the guys who drove that network even further into the ground -- is a remarkably polite guy, everything considered.

That didn't keep him from offering up the quote of the morning, though, when asked about recent events at his old network, including the decision to hand five hours of prime time over to Jay Leno.

"NBC is like the crazy ex-wife I can't get away from," said Reilly, who'll cop to having used the line before.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
