    I just read in a New York paper that something like 14 executives of AMC, including the president, have been let go because of "financial irregularities". I guess they'll be adding more commercials to make up for it. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.[​IMG]

    Which paper? I haven't been able to find this item.

    EDIT: OK, I see why I missed it. The firings occurred several weeks ago. The most recent story relates to questions raised by Moody's Investor Services.

    Probably won't affect the programming in the slightest.

    Michael, It was in the business section of either The News or The Post a couple of days ago, I don't remember which. It was just a line or two in a story about the media dealings. Your Newsday story was much more detailed. Thanks.

    They should have been fired for turning AMC into a shit station. AMC used to be my favorite station (until I got TMC). No more letterboxing and now with lots of commercials. What a waste.

    I don't watch AMC anymore either. Like Larry, they used to be my favorite station until TMC came along. It's a pity they changed formats, perhaps the new management will raise the sorry state to which AMC has descended.
