The New York Daily News has more details on Britney Spears’ battle with NBC that saw her jump to rival network ABC to promote her new album ‘In The Zone’. After NBC’s ‘Dateline’ ran a unflattering segment on the singer, Spears was allegedly furious and yesterday pulled out of her November 21st performance on NBC’s ‘Today’ show. “Her management made a deal tied to the [Nov. 18] release of her CD, ‘In the Zone,'” a source explained. “NBC was going to put her on ‘Today,’ ‘Dateline,’ ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,’ MSNBC, you name it. It was all confirmed …Then ABC came up with the network special. She then told NBC that she first had to do the ABC shows – ‘Prime Time,’ ‘Good Morning America,’ ‘Jimmy Kimmel,’ etc. [So] NBC went ahead with the ‘Dateline’ piece early. She screwed them first.”
