Mark Burnett appears to disagree with Jeff Probst about what makes good TV
Survivor executive producer Mark Burnett appears to disagree with Survivor executive producer and host Jeff Probst about what makes good TV.
Jeff Probst: “Villains are who you want to watch on TV. … All the main characters [on certain dramas] are evil people who are often breaking the law and certainly are immoral. They’re certainly the most fun to watch. I’m not interested in watching, I don’t know, ‘The Cosby Show.’ That’s not fun.”
Mark Burnett: “There has been a shift, I’m sure of it. People are genuinely hurting. The last thing the audience wants to see is people ripped apart.”
