->''"My standard for verisimilitude is simple and I came to it when I started to write prose narrative: fuck the average reader. I was always told to write for the average reader in my newspaper life. The average reader, as they meant it, was some suburban white subscriber with two-point-whatever kids and three-point-whatever cars and a dog and a cat and lawn furniture. He knows nothing and he needs everything explained to him right away, so that exposition becomes this incredible, story-killing burden. Fuck him. Fuck him to hell."''

Or domestic comedies where the whole family gets together to screw gruff old Dad. Or quiz shows where [[Series/TwentyOne people get put in isolation booths]] and develop coronary occlusion before your very eyes ... Important writers! Remember when {{NBC}} tried to beef up their Sunday nights with important writers? Plays by Robert Sherwood--Thornton Wilder--Ferenc Molnar. Important enough for you? ... So what happened?
