More good stuff from James Hibberd on a slow Thursday. Mr. Hibberd talks to Bromstad about NBC's pilot season, bubble shows and how to save Fridays.
Learning my lesson from the post about comments from Fox's Kevin Reilly, I will offer no translating and let you, the humble reader decipher the tea leaves any way you see fit:
THR: Let's run down some of the bubble shows. "Heroes"?
Bromstad: We met with ("Heroes" creator) Tim Kring (last week) and talked about a lot of things. It's a wait-and-see for us.
THR: If "Heroes" does come back, is there a chance of it being announced as a final season?
Bromstad: We're going to cross that bridge when we come to it.
THR: "Chuck" -- a bit surprising on Mondays?
Bromstad: Pleasant surprise, and they're doing great work.
THR: So fans presumably won't have to buy Subway sandwiches again this year?
Bromstad: Well, it's got to maintain, and it depends on development.
Uh oh! Sorry, I couldn't resist.
