What kind of ending is that?

1 Apr

At the very end of a the New York Times' supposition about who might replace Ted Koppel at ABC, was the following two paragraphs:

But any choice the network makes to replace Mr. Koppel, in news or entertainment, entails risk. The wrong choice could be disastrous for ABC. A failing show at 11:35 might leave the network vulnerable to losing the time to affiliated stations, which could make more money with syndicated programming in that hour.

ABC has no interest in that possibility.

Was it really a strong possibility that ABC wants a failing show at 11:35? What the heck is that supposed to mean? That is what I call bad writing.
