    Regarding the Battle Royale article, this line almost made me laugh out loud:

    “While it’s unlikely any network would put two shows with similar themes on the air at the same time…”

    Guess the author has not tuned in CBS recently.  Or talked with Dawn Ostroff, who never saw a girlie soap (GG, 90210, Melrose, etc) she didn’t immediately greenlight.

    Man, what a difference a year makes, with Pedowitz transforming the network.  You can quickly see how Dawn & Co. just ran her ever-narrowing target audience right  into the ground.
