Rather than create anything new and interesting for the TV network (Ryan Seacrest counts as neither), the folks at E! are betting on that sure-fire, never-fails, no-one-has-ever-lost-a-dime-on-it medium: The Internet.
The Answer Bitch, L.A.’s hottest little vixen of gossip, tells us – and only us, because we’re that cool – that she filmed a short-form Internet program on her brand-new set yesterday, joining other short-form nuggets, such as The 2006 Tater Tops Awards and a Web-only complement to The Simple Life, Life Ain’t Simple.
Why do networks insist on relegating their good stuff to the Web? It’s nice to have something to watch at work, but our TiVo is hungry.
