Likewise, if I don''t add new people every year, then the show isn''t the show. It requires new people, for both us and the audience."
"We got to a point where a lot of people were waiting for playing time," says Michaels. "The way the series has survived is by that level of renewal. "It''s essential to get people off and doing other things," he says.
