FX chief says Netflix exaggerates viewership numbers
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Someone is standing up to television's Goliath, with a prominent competitor saying Monday that Netflix is deceiving the public about what is a hit and what isn't.

FX CEO: Viewers in danger of peak TV’s story overload
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Television is in danger of storytelling overload with diminishing returns to viewers, FX Networks' chief executive said Friday.
His previous caution that there was too much TV was overly narrow, John Landgraf said: "There's too much story, there's too much narrative."
That leads to the "impossibility of surprising the audience, of providing something that seems truly novel, truly new," he told a TV critics' meeting.
