Because I’m going to assume you have a life, I’m guessing you haven’t heard everything you need to know about the 1996 97 fall season. Don’t worry, though, there’s still plenty of time to take it all in. As you may know, the Big Four ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox recently announced their fall lineups. But even die hard industry watchers aren’t bothering to commit much to memory. Why should they?

So believe me, I’m giving it some serious thought. Come on, that’s where you find the fame, the fortune, the People magazine covers, all of it.

Go ahead, crave the fame, the movie says. But ask, “How much is enough?” Service the career, but decide, going in, where you draw the line, morally.
