I believe that 99 percent of successful TV shows change an immense amount from the pilot to the tenth or twelfth episode. ---->>>

And I go 'Why would anyone want to do it like that?' ---->>>

I used to fight with my friends who wrote on 'Seinfeld,' because they had such great pride in saying it was a show about nothing. ---->>>

I love TV. I watch more TV than most people you know. ---->>>
