The TVTropes Trope Finder is where you can come to ask questions like "Do we have this one?" and "What's the trope about...?" Trying to rediscover a long lost show or other medium but need a little help? Head to You Know That Show and try your luck there. Want to propose a new trope? You should be over at You Know, That Thing Where.
1 Sep 13th, 2017 at 11:11AMIs there a subtrope of Executive Meddling where the meddling in question goes against the wishes of the viewers, with the execs themselves never catching on? For example: Suppose The Alice and Bob Show has lackluster ratings, with viewers complaining about the level of gratuitous sex. The execs, however, think that the best way to bolster ratings is to increase the amount of gratuitous sex. This alienates the viewers and lowers the ratings, and the execs respond with even more gratuitous sex, further driving down the ratings until they hit rock-bottom and the show is cancelled.
