Season Finale: The Unexpected Rise and Fall of The WB and UPN

Season Finale: The Unexpected Rise and Fall of The WB and UPN is a book written by Suzanne Daniels, former executive President of Entertainment for The WB, and Cynthia Littleton, reporter of Variety and published by HarperCollins. This book explains the details of the history of The WB and UPN.

Season Finale suggests many reasons for the demise of The WB, including founder Jamie Kellner's departure, the lack of owned and operated stations, a failure to develop many new hits after 2002, Time Warner's decision to merge with America Online and allowing Buffy the Vampire Slayer to move from The WB to UPN for its last two seasons.

Famous quotes containing the words fall, season, unexpected and/or rise:

    Acknowledge your male characteristics. Celebrate them. Honor them. Turn them into a manhood that serves the world around you. But do not let them overwhelm you and do not let those who confuse maleness and manhood take your manhood from you. Most of all, do not fall prey to the false belief that mastery and domination are synonymous with manliness.
    Kent Nerburn (20th century)

    Let us have a good many maples and hickories and scarlet oaks, then, I say. Blaze away! Shall that dirty roll of bunting in the gun-house be all the colors a village can display? A village is not complete, unless it have these trees to mark the season in it. They are important, like the town clock. A village that has them not will not be found to work well. It has a screw loose, an essential part is wanting.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In contrast to revenge, which is the natural, automatic reaction to transgression and which, because of the irreversibility of the action process can be expected and even calculated, the act of forgiving can never be predicted; it is the only reaction that acts in an unexpected way and thus retains, though being a reaction, something of the original character of action.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    ...for [God] makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous.
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 5:45.
