Bernie Mac creator Larry Wilmore is out after blasting his bosses in this week's Entertainment Weekly.
"They don't care," Wilmore said about Fox in an EW article about the impact of reality television on other types of shows.
"In our first season we won a Peabody award, two Television Critics awards, an Emmy, two Golden Satellites. We got a Golden Globe nomination.
"But we were off the air for almost two months between December and January. We came back on in February, and then Fox decided to pull us during the sweeps period because they wanted to win the sweeps.
"They'll pull us for whatever reality show brings that 30 share," he said.
According to published reports, Wilmore's outburst in EW wasn't the first time he tangled with Fox execs -- in fact, Wilmore's relationship with Fox was rocky from the get-go, as he battled his bosses over the direction of the show, which became a hit shortly after premiering in 2001.
According to Variety, Wilmore is expected to ink a production deal with NBC.
