Video ~ Nina Tassler interviewed about Alex O'Loughlin & Moonlight fans


In this video, TV Week's Josef Adalian interviews Nina Tassler (President of CBS Entertainment) at the Television Critics Association Tour. The chat took place before the official announcement of Alex O'Loughlin's talent holding deal.

When asked about keeping Alex, she says "Nothing concrete. We've talked to him in the past. I have a great relationship with him. But, its someone we hold in very high regard. So, its someone I'd like to work with... absolutely."

Nina, again, states that she loves Vampire shows.

"Message to Moonlight fans ~ .... I'm incredibly grateful and appreciative... They're loyal and passionate... We can not dismiss how passionate and enthusiastic fans are about their favorite tv characters and about their tv shows. So, I'm totally fine with their passion and enthusiasm."

Nina Tassler also talks about the Fall strategy for CBS, CSI and William Petersen (Grissom) leaving the series, Swingtown, etc. The Alex & Moonlight portion begins around the 3:16 mark of the video.

I did not play the video and have no intention to do so. I dispise the woman (and I'm being kind using the word "woman"). I will never, never believe a word she says or trust her. I firmly believe she has a title at Crap BS but no power...she is a puppet who is controlled by other PTB.

Yeah, if you love vampires so much, and admire the fans of Moonlight, then why dont you PUT IT BACK ON!!! I really really dont like this person. She even said for herself "they want something new" and wasn't Moonlight "new"? I haven't ever seen anything like it on CBS before. Shes only briging Alex on to get some viewers back. That lying little witch. ( If you cant already tell, Im still a little mad at her)

This woman never ceases to amaze me. On one breath she says one thing on the other she contradicts herself. First she criticizes the fans of Moonlight for being ‘too actor-driven’ – but then she’s totally fine with how passionate and enthusiastic fans are with their favorite TV character and show. So what gives Lady!!! She sure has a funny way of showing how much she loves vampires, especially our Vampire Mick St. John. Must be very uncomfortable for Alex to be in this predicament listening her talk about him. It just boggles the mind!! I’m totally frustrated with her and wish some one at TPTB offers her “The Retirement Package SOON”.

Just put back our Stud Vamp Mick St. John and the 2nd Season of Moonlight this fall and enough with your ramblings.
