Michael J. Fox's message was not on tape

We refer to the letter from Jennifer Morison headlined, 'Why did TV station take out heartfelt plea?' (Sunday Morning Post, January 21).

Regarding that episode of the series Spin City, we broadcast what was supplied to us by the distributor.

The heartfelt plea of the actor Michael J. Fox was not included on the tape we received.

Sitcom City

It took TVB planners years to realise that Monday night is not the night for endless earnest news programmes, but someone finally saw sense at the end of 1997 and broke up the dismal 90-minute entertainment-free zone of The Pearl Report, The Wall Street Journal and 20/20 with Spin City at 8pm.

Better off going solo

I resisted breaking the news last week; I wanted to let you all see Mike cry those crocodile tears, and be moved.

The truth is viewers, Michael J Fox, if not Mike Flaherty, is glad Ashley/Carla Gugino is gone from Spin City (Pearl, 8pm).
