Quote of the Day (Jerry Seinfeld, on ‘Setup Talk Shows’)

“These shows are promotional vehicles for the industry. They're not talk shows, per se, they're kind of setup talk shows. ‘I'm gonna ask you this, then you say that.’ The shows are pretty cheap, too, so until it becomes an unworkable business model, I don't think you'll see change. Same as the movie business. Until this thing implodes from within, which feels like it's not too far off.”-- Jerry Seinfeld, on the current state of talk shows, quoted in Lacey Rose, “Who Is the Head of NBC Now? Anybody?”, The Hollywood Reporter, September 6, 2013
