Networks Fight Over Britney Spears Appearance
First NBC had her, now ABC does. Apparently, Britney has backed out of a an NBC 'Dateline' exclusive interview with Maria Shriver and opted instead to appear in a prime time holiday season special on ABC including a November 13 interview with Diane Sawyer.
"ABC pulled out all the stops for Britney. They see it as a war with NBC, and they want to win. ABC promised Britney her own special, plugs on 'Good Morning America' and 'Entertainment Tonight' and nonstop coverage of her new album, 'Britney,' " a New York Post source reports.
