Time Spinners Admits To Overreacting To Actors Failing
By Shelton McRobotface
LOS ANGELES—Amid a decade-long decline in TV ratings, producer-brothers Michael and Michael Lapp admitted Monday that their version of the TV hit’s cheering actors are being just as “overreacting” to the show’s poor ratings as the fact that those actors are failing. “We’re not trying to be too hard on these actors—there are some of them who are doing really well—but I think it’s time for us to step back and ask ourselves, ‘Am I being too hard on them?’” said Michael Lapp, who noted that since last fall, the show has had no better-than-average ratings and a record number of actors who are not winning any awards. “I don’t know how we got this out of the way. What have we been doing wrong? I mean, these actors are just doing really well, right?” At press time, Michael Lapp argued that a better TV audience would lead to more shows on which everyone cheers for everyone.
