Fox Entertainment Chairman, Kevin Reilly, is leaving his place at the top of the FOX network. Kim Masters is joined by Michael Schneider (KCRW's 'The Spin-off' and TV Guide magazine) to discuss the ouster of the affable executive. Reilly had run FOX since 2007 and in recent years hasn't launched new hits while older mainstays American Idol and Glee have lost ratings. He was recently on The Business talking about how he wants to evolve the broadcast network business and forgo pilot season. He has yet to announce what he'll do next and FOX has yet to say who will replace him.
