All of the people who have posted on this subject have neglected that
the Fox broadcast network "enjoyed" record-high ratings for this
particular telecast and probably continued to do so Wednesday
night.  All those who worship at the "broadcasting-is-a-business-only"
altar can only retort:  "Never mind that it's in bad or even atrocious taste,
people want to see it and there's money to be made in providing whatever
the public wants to see"...engraved over the entrance to the offices
