Um, yeah....

The 700 Club is still airing on ABC Family but it's not aired under their brand name and it's not really their choice. In a perfect world, it would be elsewhere like FOX News.

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."
