    Because the fans are the ones that keep her show on the air. I wouldn't say catering to their whims as much as taking some constructive criticism moving forward. Fans were pissed because the season ended without a resolution. So what do they do? Make everyone wait an entire second season. At least pretend you give a ****.

    I know Lost producers listened to the fans and killed off two characters that were widely panned by fans.

    You forget that those two characters were introduced in response to fan complaints ("Why don't we ever see any of the other survivors?!?"). Killing them off was admitting they made a mistake listening to the fans in the first place. And having a little fun with it.

    Her reward for her arrogance will be pitiful ratings

    Those new characters on Lost were supposed to make the show friendly to new viewers, pretty much whenever anything was going on those 2 would would be in the background saying something like "Don't you remember when ....". The loyal fan base hated the addition, since they had been following so closely for years already. If they introduced new characters that actually had something to bring to the current plot, other than to rehash what we already knew, I think we would have liked them.

    You're living in a dream world if you believe producers listen to fans...and do what they suggest...

    Where did I ever say they do what fans suggest? I said the Lost producers listened to the fans and acted accordingly.

    My point from the beginning is the producer of a show shouldn't be telling fans to basically eff off. It's generally not a good idea to piss off your customers.

    And, as I said, she could care less, and I don't blame her. Why should she. They aren't her "customers"....

    Are you arguing for the sake of arguing? What is it exactly that you don't understand about the relationship between a TV show and viewers. I've already explained why she should care about insulting viewers. Let me simplify. Make fans mad, fans go away. Fans go away, show goes away.

    She doesn't have to care, but she also doesn't have to say as much.

    No, because you're under the delusion that viewers are "customers", that's why.
