The problem is, nothing is too exaggerated to be impossible in the
world of commercial tv.
Though the statements seem preposterous, they were all perfectly
believable as something tv people would say.
If you intended to fool us and give people a miserable 24 hours, be
happy; you succeeded. If you did want to share a funny story and give
us all a few laughs, as you say, you failed miserably. You should have
said THIS IS FICTION, if you really didn't want to be taken seriously.
Read your article again; we see more preposterous press releases from
the tv networks every day, and they're all, alas real.
