NBC Chairman: 'Hannibal Is One Of Our Best Shows'
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.13.2014

NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt spoke at the network's TCA summer press tour (via IGN) about the upcoming third season of Hannibal and more. Check out the highlights:

On the show getting renewed despite challenging ratings: "Hannibal is - and I think most people in this room would agree - one of the best shows we have creatively. It's one of the best reviewed shows that this network has had since I've been here. And we still struggle to find an audience for it. It's great, we're keeping it going, we keep trying to build an audience for it."

On the show's ratings: "...if this were on a cable network the small audience would not matter. It would be deemed more successful than it is on our network. I don't know why five million people or eight million people won't watch Hannibal on a broadcast network. Three million might watch it on Showtime or another cable network and that's okay. The minute you try and do something that is dark, and subversive, and frightening and gets into that territory, you start to peel away the mass audience. It's just the way it is. Because the quality of that show is undeniable."

On the third season: "They just pitched us the next season and it just blew us away. We can't help but get really excited about it. We read all of the research, and the Tweets, and the followers of that show and it's like, 'Oh, this cable show is on NBC.' That's just how they view it."
