You are Soooo right. The possibility of this is so patently ridiculous I can’t even. They will fill the space with something, and they have plenty of other shows, as well; if these people’s jobs are worth saving, ABC can surely fit them in somewhere else. Beyond that, what is their content or their audience going forward? People on the right are already mad that ABC fired their Grand Wizard; even assuming that some of them would still watch, they probably won’t stick around if ABC changes or softens the content. If ABC keeps similar content, they give lie to their apology and piss off people on the left in an even bigger way (I’m so glad I don’t watch TV!). Sometimes you just gotta admit that you danced with the devil and you got burned — time to move on.
