Gradual Success

Were you surprised at the level of success that Next Generation found?

Picture I don't think I was surprised at the level of success because it happened gradually. If we had burst onto the scene and made a great impact, like West Wing has this year in America, perhaps that would have floored me and I would not have known how to deal with that. Because it happened so gradually we took it in our stride. I remember looking at the numbers sometimes and being a little amazed that we were doing better than some very popular shows. Because it was a gradual process, it didn't floor us quite as much.
