Why Can't Popular Boston Artist, Rob Potylo, Have His Own Reality TV Show?

We typically don't watch TV on Sunday afternoons, but if Rob Potylo's show, "Quiet Desperation", was scheduled to air on Sundays, we would be sure to tune in. "Quiet Desparation" is an entertaining reality show on YouTube that showcases local creatives. Rob Potylo is a former BCN radio personality, musician, and artist, highly regarded by the art community. He has created over 400 videos, and his YouTube channel has gained close to 3 million views. When Rob pitched his show to a seemingly interested network, he did not expect to later be rejected.
