Peter Liguori (pictured right) and Reilly always did seem like a good team, with complementary skills and simpatico personalities.

    The one thing that doesn’t make sense… Peter Liguori hasn’t really done THAT great a job at Fox picking out entertainment programming. Has he? 5 drama cancelled this year? Hardly Fox-like comedies. I hear he is a natural leader, a very well liked exec., etc., etc. but programmer? Entertainment President of a major network? Not so sure. I mean really if it weren’t for American Idol, 24 and two shows also developed before his time at the network: Prison Break and Bones which do – OK, where would the network be? Certainly not #1. Dare I say it… bring back Berman, hey at least the staff will have ice cream Fridays every now and then and a huge woman running around with a bullhorn touting rating successes every once in a while. Reilly, at FOX, may be able to be a success as a broadcast network President. He certainly has the creative chops and perhaps this time management would let him spread his wings and support him.
