    And you of course know this because you were sitting and watching them non stop, right?

    They must be doing something right. Even people who hate them tune in and watch.

    You haven't seen their ratings lately in key demographics.

    They are still #1 in the 25-54 demographic according to mediabistro.com. Ratings are provided by Nielsen.

    If anyone believes that ABC, NBC, CBS or CNN wouldn't do the interview with Simpson, you have a higher or different opinion of those networks than I do.
    Will I watch the program? No.

    Good point. They would all show it if given the chance. That said, I will most definitely not be tuning in to this crap.

    There should be something done. This crap has to stop somewhere.

    Yeah...only Fox would stoop so low.

    SAN FRANCISCO John Mark Karr , a one-time suspect in the slaying of JonBenet Ramsey, was briefly stopped by police when the former schoolteacher was spotted wandering near the classrooms of a school where he briefly worked years ago.

    Sgt. Steve Mannina said a limousine carrying Karr, 41, and two producers from ABC's "Good Morning America" TV show was stopped shortly after the reported sighting Friday. Police took the names of Karr and the producers but no one was arrested because no laws were broken.

    Police said an employee of the Convent of the Sacred Heart school in San Francisco, where Karr worked briefly as a teacher's aide in 2000, called police when she spotted Karr near the school.

    "He stepped out of the limo and stood (outside the school) for two or three minutes, walked down the sidewalk, went up to the door and looked in the window, Mannina said of Karr.

    Karr was released from jail Thursday after Sonoma County authorities lost critical evidence in a 5-year-old child pornography case. He was released a little more than a month after DNA evidence cleared him of suspicion in the slaying of child beauty queen JonBenet, whom he claimed to have been with when she died in Colorado.

    Karr was returned to California from Thailand last month to face the five-year-old pornography case.

    According to a New York Times story at least one other network (NBC) turned it down due to "questionable taste". ReganBooks, the books publisher is owned by News Corporation, which owns Fox. Judith Regan (ReganBooks) is producing the tv show.

    Fox Network is being more base than usual and is covered in any blood money made.

    sounds to me like this will be on the Fox network, not Fox News. Despicable none the less.

    And yes, it was me watching Fox news last week. I wanted to see what their reaction to the Election would be.

    Yeah. I was going to post something how it was hypocritical for Fox to be doing this when Fox News claims to stand for all that's right and good in this country. But then I realized that Fox News is seperate than Fox entertainment. I'm sure a lot of people at CBS News don't care for Survivor but it's not really their decision to put the show on.

    NBC turned it down for "questionable taste". ABC would have done the same as their parent company is Disney.

    And I doubt the CBS News people care one whit about Survivor as A CBS morning anchor is also the host of Big Brother.

    But a real news organization would see this for what it is: profiting off the death of a mother and a son. I'm betting OJ isn't seeing a dime from the "interview", it's all calculated to increase book sales.

    There are a number of Fox shows I like. I love House. I still love the Simpsons. Vanished and Prison Break are pretty good. 24 is great.

    But this is debasing themselves. It's potentially a nightmare in the making for the survivors, especially the kids.

    A new low in broadcast history.
    Suck it up cupcake.

    The dude owes the Goldman's millions and hasn't paid them anything because he says he didn't do it, but then he is going to make a mint off of telling people how he would have done it if he were the "real" killer.

    Just awful.

    Can you imagine if this were your family member he slaughtered? Gosh, my heart goes out to those people.

    There was one part of the story where he says he had never seen that much blood in all of his life. Geesh, what an insensitive jerk.

    I hope Barry Sheck is happy.

    The other networks are not above reproach. It just so happens that Fox is getting hammered now because they WERE currently willing to cross the line in this particular instance.

    Do me a favor and Google the Disney movie called "Powder"...

    Now, let me know if you find anything intriguing about the director of that film that would fly in the face of all things synergistic at Disney.

    I just heard on the radio that the number being thrown around for both the book and television rights was somewhere in the neighborhood of $ 3,000,000.

    Fox should go ahead and make that a 3rd party check requiring a signature from Fred Goldman.
