He told an audience of cable execs yesterday, "“You’d be crazy to make [a show like that]," these days. His more likely picks? Not so clear, because of the wide variety of alternative platforms available today, and time shifting that audiences are doing. And oh, yes, those pirates keep him and other network heads up at night.
