Ben Silverman Of NBC Woke Me Up At 3:00 a.m....

Ben_Silverman.jpgThis morning at 3:00 a.m., I received a desperate, pathetic call from Ben Silverman (the Co-Chairman of NBC Entertainment) asking me for a job.  He said he woke from a horrible dream with the number 5.2 stuck in his head.  I asked him what he thought that number meant and he said:  "That's going to be household rating for Crusoe when it premieres on October 17th... and on October 18th, I will be fired."  I could tell he was jacked up on something because I know all the signs (being a former out of control Hollywood bad boy myself).

I told him he really should have called Jay McBee (President of the Manka Bros. Television Group).  I explained that I was too senior of an executive to even be having this conversation with him.  He understood, telling me he was grateful that I even took his call and mentioned that he's not even allowed to look Jeff Zucker in the eye (much less call him when he has a bad dream).  Then he started to cry - a real low-groaning-belly-aching cry.  I tried to cheer him up by saying I really enjoyed the remake of Knight Rider (a complete lie) and was sorry it wasn't working.  As a joke, I told him he should next try to remake Friends or Seinfeld or some other show that was more successful in its initial run.  He said, "That's a fucking awesome idea!  Thanks, Khan!"

He hung up - I'm sure to chemically re-energize himself and get back to work (though there really is no reason to - I think he'll be canned after that horrible looking Christian Slater show bombs - perhaps he should remake that show with a bigger star).  I immediately called Jay McBee and told him to offer Ben Silverman a job as the new head of MBS.  Even though he's been on a cold streak lately, at least he knows how to throw a decent Emmy partyMBS' recent one was pathetic.

P.S. - Because of all the recent late night phone calls to my house, I will now be unreachable at home.

silverman is safe. I think the Crusoe ratings will be better than most are predicting and I think it will save silverman's job.
