NBC: uh, yeah, we want to, like, get into that, you know, reality thing.
Jeff Zucker, president of NBC entertainment, said, and I quote, because this is too funny not to quote, “We want one of those [reality] programs. It would just make everything that much easier.” (Yeah, no kidding–you’re just now figuring that out?)
