A classic example of trying to put a good face on a bad situation.

I think it has worked out best for everyone. We did not get a lot of promotion. We did not get a lot of marketing. We weren’t fully staffed. That’s just what happened. I don’t look at things as, ‘Was I disappointed to have a show that didn’t have a lot of support?’ We did a really good job.
