Used to be that the Crone was a big shot TV executive. Not any more. This week she had dinner with a former colleague who has continued to make her living chasing ratings, developing formats and searching out the latest reality star.
The Crone’s erstwhile colleague explained that her channel now sorts potential presenters into a variety of categories, each more crazy than the last.
At the end of a sumptuous meal, the bill arrived. The Crone’s friend reached for it and said “Don’t worry, I can pretend you still are someone”
“Great” said the Crone, completely unabashed ” Please can you put me with the other ‘credible obsessives’.”
