Days after iconic TV star Larry Hagman succumbed to throat cancer, his network is already discussing how his passing will affect their bottom line!!
Paying little thought to the actor's profoundly saddened survivors, they are concerned instead with how Larry's passing could boost Dallas' ratings when the show returns!
A high-ranking network exec revealed:
“Sure, it sounds a bit morbid, but [Larry] spent most of his life working in show business and would probably have understood."
Yes, it does sound morbid.
We understand these suits are paid for their business acumen, but there is a time and a place for talking shop and this is neither!
Who knows how the dollars and cents will play out and, at this juncture, who really cares?!
Ugh!! That statement is beyond morbidly tacky — it's wrong!!
Our sincerest thoughts remain with Larry's friends and family, not with people profiting from his passing.
