I've had people accuse me of being too tough of a grader. But my job is to paint reality versus telling people what they want to hear.
People in the movie division hate the people in the cable group... Ultimately, you work for NBCUniversal, not Bravo or Syfy.
You don't get a chance to buy a company like NBCUniversal unless it's not doing well.
You really can create a lot of value by putting content and distribution together, particularly if the content is cable content.
People would say, 'You can't say negative things about the company.' But you have no credibility if you can't tell people that they need to do better.
People have more options to watch quality, professionally produced video than ever before, and they are using those options - whether it is DVR, Netflix or Hulu.
There are movies and TV shows I wish we didn't make, sure, but we're in the business of creating things that are not all going to work.
The good news is people are watching more video than ever before; they're just watching in places that often aren't rated and aren't monetized.
