Riley addressed the perennial issue of Pat Robertson's "The 700 Club" being contractually required to appear (though not under the ABC Family branding) on a channel that has received GLAAD's highest rating. The channel's roots date back to a founding by Robertson for his ministry.
"It's obviously a show that is on our air," Riley said. "It's not a show we put on there, and we think our audience understands this. I think most viewers understand that they come to our network to watch the shows they want to watch."
