Jennifer recently said it's 'kind of sad' that time-specific TV is all but extinct in an interview for Variety.   

'I'm shocked this is where we are, but excited that this is where we are. I didn't see it coming. I remember not understanding. What the hell does streaming mean? They're like, it's there all the time,' she said. 

Despite her reservations, it appears Jennifer is on board with streaming as the Morning Wars is set to premiere in November.
