From The Hollywood Reporter via The Live Feed:

THR: What's your biggest regret?

Zucker: My biggest regret would be that we weren't able to turn around NBC Entertainment quickly, although I'm very encouraged about the seeds of the turnaround that have been planted. We have a long way to go. There is nothing certain about any of this. But we launched a number of new shows this week. None of our shows was dead on arrival. We have had a pretty good week. And I think the seeds of a turnaround are very much in place.

THR: Any regrets about the decision to bring in Ben Silverman as NBC Entertainment president in 2007?

Zucker: I think it turns out Ben was probably better suited to being a producer than an executive.
