    “Please Note: From the Live + Same Day….”

    ABC PLEASE NOTE: I hope you are preparing next week’s spin – ABC placed X against CBS’ TBBT fueled-line up and the highly promoted UTD premier. Feel free to copy and paste. No attribution needed.

    I honestly don’t see the point in ABC releasing a press release for this? Both are down!

    ABC was saying in press releases they re happy with how to live with your parents and how it beat american idol in its first episode and that improved every single week the retention of modern family compared to previous years… and guess what how to live with your parents was cancelled. so when abc does a press release , always dont take it seriously , they spin everything just to save their image. but when press releases are like jokes , they actually obtain the opposite , everyone laughing at them.

    @harry, agreed. Sometimes these press releases confuse me when thread says, “it rises from last week and wins the night” and the next thread says “it dropped from last week”. LOL
