The Tentpoles and the Tent: What's Behind "Bigger, Better, Fewer"

Over the past year, several major cable nets have moved towards a “bigger, better, fewer” programming strategy that places an emphasis on “tentpole” content and A-list talent, both of which come with heftier price tags than reality television. How does the tentpole strategy differ amongst networks? Is it working? What are the opportunities in the strategy for unscripted producers and the climate for the non-tentpole series and programs that used to be the backbone of the schedule?
