NBC Chairman Believes Hannibal Is Best Show On TV

Hannibal is one of the best shows on television, but NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt believes it’s the absolute best there is. 

When Hannibal premiered on NBC a few years ago, it wasn’t a hit show right away and took a while to latch on with fans. It eventually did though, and it’s looking like it’s going to end up being one of the better additions to the television catalog when all is said and done.

But is Hannibal the best show on television? Call it a case of rooting for the home team, but NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt is firm in his belief that his show is the best on television.

Greenblatt spoke about his love of the show, and is convinced that Hannibal is the best show on television right now and is pretty excited about the third season of the show.

Hannibal is…one of the best shows we have creatively, and it’s one of the best-reviewed shows this network has had since I’ve been here. We still struggle to find an audience for it,” Greenblatt told critics. “It’s great, we’re keeping it going, we keep trying to build the audience, but if this were on a cable network, the small audience wouldn’t matter and it would be deemed more successful than it is on our network.”

It’s hard to say that your show isn’t the best thing on television when you’re as invested in it as Greenblatt is. But he’s not wrong in asserting that it’s not getting the love it deserves. Hannibal is a brilliant series, but Greenblatt’s devotion to the series will mean it won’t go down without a fight.
