NBC And ABC Wage The Battle Of Britney

The New York Daily News has more details on ’ 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.”

    I hope Britney doesn’t screw over Jay Leno. NBC people are retards. Britney had a contract with ABC first is she suppose to cancel on ABC and go to NBC. The more promotion the better that’s probably what Britney was thinking. It’s NBC lost, now they are going to lose in the ratings battle. It’s stupid that they did the dateline thing to get ratings.

    Who gives a crap who screwed who over-the fact is everyone wants her on their network can you blame them?she brings major ratings-all that matters is the new album is getting major positive buzz which is deserving-it is an amazing album–she is gaining a lot new fans too-Madonna fans, young adults like me in their early 20’s, a lot of gay people are digging Britney right now too-this CD is gonna be HUGE
