You can check out the whole 30 minute interview on Charlie Rose’s own website which uses a non-embeddable video player.
I love how Rose opens up with that “NBC is in shambles.” Zucker corrects him on some points about how well the news is doing, but does admit their primetime lineup is beyond lacking.
"NBC Entertainment is responsible for 5% of the bottom line and 95% of its perception” Zucker says, and that’s why he still has a job. The company is successful in spite of the failures of the peacock. That’s just astonishing.
It makes me think that if I told my bosses that my department was only responsible for 5% of the income so it can be less than mediocre. Yeah, I’d still have a job. Or that a task that takes up 5% of my time is acceptable for failing. That's just unbelievable.
