I dont understand why NBC cant develop good shows?
There is fertile material out there. Look at how good the cable networks are at developing decent dramas these days.
The cable networks don't have the pressure of prime time.
TNT's had some great success lately but those numbers wouldn't translate to prime-time and they benefit from receiving income from subscribers. ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox don't.
We've discussed this before but the mere fact that Journeyman didn't make it (along with a show like Jericho on CBS, which definitely had a loyal following) illustrates how difficult it is to create a prime-time ratings winner, regardless of show quality.
I think the Leno thing is a stop-gap but we'll see.
