An outlet of Fox Entertainment said Friday that financial issues led it to pull out of a mini-series about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that is being planned for NBC.

There have to be advertising estimates already being pushed around, and the NBC folks knew the bottom line on profit. You’d have to ask yourself....who exactly would watch this? It’s likely to be run on a Sunday night, and with the challenges coming from the History Channel for it’s Sunday night programming....I doubt if five percent of the TV audience would view the show.
For advertisers....that’s not much to brag about. And for reruns? Zero interest.
I’d also suggest this. A number of folks will record the movie, and add sub-titles of their own variety...to say what the real Hillary would have said or done. These private movies would have floated around and been a major topic of humor and entertainment. Some town would have started the Hillary Movie Fest, where the sub-titled movies would have been shown and awards given out for creativity and bold humor.
I never want to read the words “Pulls Out Of” and “Hillary Clinton” again. You CANNOT unthink that.
NBC has certainly dropped any pretense of being a neutral in this next election cycle.
Why are they not a registered partisan organization?
What a Great Idea!
She might even push Hitler off the charts.
Hillary finds out Justin Beiber is in trouble
Hillary finds out Pantsuits are no longer stylish
Hillary finds out they have discovered a cure for cankles
Hillary finds out that it DOES make a difference
I first thought it was a story about Hillary’s vacation in England being ruined when the hounds and men on horses showed up.
Poor little abused fox.
