ABC Entertainment President Puts Katherine Heigl On Blast

Now that Ben Silverman is planning on riding off into the sunset, we're wondering which television-network executive is going to step up to take his place as a mouthpiece of awesomeness. We know it certainly won't be the mind-numbingly boring Jeff Gaspin, but perhaps ABC's Steve McPherson could play the part? He just got around to responding to drastically overworked Katherine Heigl's claims of being forced to endure "cruel and mean" working conditions on Grey's Anatomy: "I think it's unfortunate. [...] There are so many people who work so hard on Grey's, and all of our shows, without any notoriety, and those are the ones I'd be concerned about, people who feel like they're being criticized or looked down upon." Um, snap? [Live Feed/HR]
