A terrible fall season at NBC is forcing the network to consider scaling back the number of hours it airs programming, Chief Executive Jeff Zucker told an investor conference Monday.
While NBC will continue to fund the creation of pilots, Zucker told analysts at a media investor conference sponsored by UBS that NBC is considering cutting the number of hours or perhaps even the number of nights it provides programming.
Premiering soon, on NBC:
A new reality series, executive produced by Ryan Seacrest ("American Idol") and Andrew Glassman ("Average Joe"), centers on a group of mothers who must help choose the perfect woman for their complacent sons. Ultimately, the series poses the question: "Who is really the most important woman in every man's life?"
In "Momma's Boys," love is in the air but the story is told from a new television perspective – because first, the women will have to get by mom.
Drama ensues when numerous mothers and their eligible bachelor sons are housed together with several single women. As the tension mounts, viewers will watch as possessive mothers influence their son's search for the perfect mate.
Can't imagine why the ratings suck.
