Matt's kids names are 'Homer' and 'Abe'. His father's name is also 'Homer'.
That's hilarious! That means that Mr. G. is Bart!
-But the article is from 99. I wonder if it's an ongoing struggle?
Anyone know of a way to set up a live chat with Bart, I mean Mr. G ?

That is a sad article, it just goes to show how focked up and disorganised Fux are. My god, any management consultant with their oh-so-lothesome buzz-words would  be able to tell them that they need a proactive (meaningless word) outlook and to energise their synergies (eh?) they will have to take edgy chances, not be a mainstream channel competing with all the other brainless mainstream shite that is pouring from the orrifices of power in the US broadcasting industry.

I have so much hate in me, it is becoming painful

Matt's right. Fox doesn't do their business like they used to. Those bastards will never learn.

Thanks for the welcome FF.
FOX has always had a screw loose. Not that the other stations are any better. Remeber the FOX show called "Babes" - about 3 really fat chicks? I think that lasted 3 shows.

Thank God I don't. Unfortunately I do remember The Chamber, Thou Shalt Commit Adultry-- I mean, Temptation Island (which is being picked up for Season 3, as I hear from televisionwithoutpity.com), Who Wants To Be A Golddigger-- I mean, Marry A Multimillionaire- and the sequel, Who Wants To Be A Princess-, Celebrity Boxing (which won it's timeslot and got an encore presentation on Wednesday, and there are plans to make it a regular thing), Baby Bob... whoops, that's CBS. Sorry. Mistook it for something Fox would do. Where were we? Ah yes. The Glutton Bowl...

I hate to be off-topic but haha, I remember Babes. Man, that was such a terrible show. It's been like ten years, and me and my friends still talk about how bad it is.
