It's been years since Ben Silverman became head of programming for NBC, and its been almost two years since I have wished his head removed from the position. Silverman did nothing to make NBC strong, and in fact, made it worse.
Who could ever forget the dreck this man put on the air: KATH AND KIM, MY OWN WORST ENEMY, KNIGHT RIDER, AMERICAN GLADIATORS, and countless number of reality trash. His only bright spots: KINGS, SOUTHLAND and (maybe) PARKS & RECREATION.
Sure, toward the end he was starting to improve (the aforementioned three shows, plus:), bringing TRAUMA, COMMUNITY, DAY ONE and PARENTHOOD to the airwaves in 2009-2010. But it's been a long time coming for his ouster. I wish him the best of luck as a producer (where he shined brightest with THE OFFICE and UGLY BETTY)
