Including this on NCIS forum, as well…I know many viewers watch both shows.
NCISLA is a show that caters to the military being about the military. Do you have any idea how many of your military viewers and others watch Fox News on a regular basis? I would suspect it to be a large number. Why on earth would LL Cool J -"Todd Smith" not want to participate in/be a part of a real American Story, even if it meant pulling from an old interview. Does he not want to share the adversity that he has overcome or let others hear his story? I for one am very disappointed that he didn’t want to be included in this story….this isn’t about Sarah Palin…it is about overcoming adversity as a real American. What bigger audience, in tune with the military, for encouraging folks to watch NCIS LA could there be? Hmmm…maybe I need to re-evaluate what shows I participate by watching….very disappointed in LL Cool J.
Excerpt from article below:
"Real American Stories features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity and we believe Mr. Smith’s interview fit that criteria. However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career."
