NBC Doesn't Want More Farrah Fawcett

Apparently Ryan O' Neal spoke a little too soon about selling more of Farrah Fawcett's misery to NBC. He had said after the success of the first show that there was enough material for a second, and I have no doubt he would have done everything he could to make it happen. Unfortunately for him, he probably asked for too much money for the second part and NBC took a pass. That is about the only reason I can think of why Ryan O'Neal's rep would tell the NY Post there are no plans for a second part.

Ryan went everywhere to tell the world there was going to be a second part. He probably assumed NBC would be salivating at the possibility of another night of great ratings. Maybe they want another night of death watch and maybe they don't. I guarantee you though that the price was probably lots higher than before which may have made them take a pass. Don't worry. If you really want to see more footage someone somewhere will buy it even if Ryan has to sell it piecemeal to different countries around the world. He knows this is his best shot to get a big paycheck.

oh heck---no more footage of farrah dying??? we have to make do with a mere 2 hours of it? well, poo.

they could have marched people in to sit by her bedside and reminisce while farrah was semi-comatose or maybe talking incoherently, and then end it with a good zoom shot of that final breath. now THAT'S entertainment!!

Unfortunately, they'll buy more, and at a higher price, when Farrah is gone.

Damn she really knows how to pick class acts in men doesn't she.

I could see it now with the last shot of this hot mess being the heart monitor (used for dramatic effect)getting slower and beeping and then going flat. Then a shot of Ryan tearful and trying to be strong telling us how great a soul she was. BLECH.
