It's going to be an extremely competitive season.
I think the thing with Thursday night is, it's not the daunting night it used to be. Everyone feels they can go in and make some noise.
I think the Super Bowl is going to be in the next couple of years the difference between possibly winning or losing a season.
Fortunately for us, we didn't feel we needed to go overboard like we did last year on short-order unscripted shows.
I think we're relieved and a little shocked that it's showing such growth this year. For us, having maintained the ratings we had last year would have been a plus.
The Olympics aren't as daunting as people think they are.
The overwhelming number of people who are watching the Olympics don't watch Fox. For us to run away from it is goofy.
With several shows like 'American Idol' and '24,' we have a commitment to the viewer to run them every week. We think it would be a disservice to the fans of those shows to put them on hiatus just because the Olympics are on.
NBC doesn't have the big shows now. We do. ABC does. CBS does. We weren't intimidated. NBC is vulnerable.
'Idol' has performed better than we expected against the Olympics, but we never took the Olympics into consideration. 'Idol' has momentum all by itself.
Because we have 'Break,' 'House' and 'Bones,' we have clear targets for our dramas. Our development was informed by those shows.
