  • Now that it is picked up, the first thing to do is fire Tim Kring. The guy is great at coming up with ideas for shows, but he destroys everything he touches.

    • Actually, if it’s really good the first to do for Fux is to hide it at 10PM on Friday nights and air the episodes out of order to make sure no one watches. Unless it turns out to be a reality show, then give it the best slot and promote the sh*t out of it!

    • No, no. They should let him do the first half season at least. Then get rid of him before he ruins everything.
