Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 529 – Bullying the customer
“Why are you back?” Li Na looked at Feng Yu happily. If it weren’t for her classmates beside her, she would have jumped into Feng Yu’s arms.
“I am here to fetch you. Didn’t we agree that you will come to Hong Kong during the National Holidays? I am afraid that you will be bored to travel on a plane alone.” Feng Yu had returned back for Lenovo, but in front of Li Na, it became that he had purposely returned for her.
Li Na smiled. She was a simple and innocent girl. She will never think that Feng Yu would lie to her. She looked at Feng Yu and asked: “Are you tired? Actually, I can go to Hong Kong by myself.”
“It is different. This is a show of my sincerity! I had bought the plane tickets for tomorrow afternoon. We will be flying to Guangzhou, and we will reach tomorrow night. Then we will be going to Hong Kong by ship. Have you ever traveled by ship?”
Li Na shook her head. She looked excited: “No. I had only sat in a small boat with you.”
“This time we will be on a big ship. When we reach Hong Kong, we can still go on a yacht. Come, let’s go for dinner.” Feng Yu could not stop flaunting in front of Li Na. Maybe it was his male instincts. Males would always want to exhibit their strengths in front of females.
“I still have not packed.”
“There is no need for you to pack. We can buy everything in Hong Kong. The clothes there is much nicer!” Feng Yu said proudly.
Feng Yu had already prepared Li Na’s travel documents. He asked Master Lu for help, and it was settled within a day.
After dinner, both returned home straight. It’s been a while since them met. That night, Feng Yu felt Li Na was more passionate.
The morning sun shines through the curtains onto Feng Yu’s face. Feng Yu turned to his side and noticed that Li Na was not beside him. He slowly opened his eyes, and he heard someone cooking in the kitchen.
“Nana, why are you up so early? It is only 7am.” Feng Yu was only wearing his briefs, and he hugged Li Na from the back.
“You are not wearing your clothes.” Li Na scolded. 7 am was still early? She was used to getting up so early as her classes start at 8 am.
“We are the only people in this house. What’s wrong?”
“I am afraid you will catch a cold.”
“Stop joking. Don’t you know how fit I am? I will catch a cold? Why not let’s do some exercise together to warm me up?” Feng Yu said with an evil laugh, and his hands start roaming about on Li Na.
“Stop it. The egg is getting burnt.” Li Na slapped Feng Yu’s hands.
Feng Yu still wanted to do something terrible to Li Na when his mobile phone rang. Who is calling so early in the morning?!
“Hello? Who are you?”
“Manager Feng? It’s me. I have two important news to tell you.” Deputy Chief Jia’s voice was heard over the phone.
“Don’t tell me that it is bad news. Are there any problems with the variety show? The Station Chief does not agree to produce it?” Feng Yu felt his eyelid twitching.
Feng Yu’s biggest worry was for something bad to happen to this variety show. He had already picked some participants for this variety show. If it were canceled, he would be ashamed to face those participants.
“Cough…… The TV station had discussed this variety show, and it can be aired. We had already started to set up the production team and had finalized the host. Ni Ping will be the host of this program.”
There were no problems with the variety show? Then why was Chief Jia hesitating?
“Chief Jia, we have known each other for quite some time. You do not need to beat around the bush. Just tell me what’s wrong.” Feng Yu said.
“The biggest problem is this program might not be airing on CCTV 2. The station wants this program to be aired on CCTV 3.”
“Huh? Change to CCTV 3?!”
“Yes. The head of CCTV 2 is the Station Chief man. I am in no position to interfere with the program’s arrangements. The Station Chief also felt that this variety show does not have any highlights and the ratings might not be good. It should not be shown on the satellite channel.”
“Chief Jia, you are the top deputy, and you can’t even make arrangements for this show to be aired on CCTV 2? CCTV 2 still have lots of re-runs of old programs. Why can’t you replace one of them?” Feng Yu felt this was too ridiculous.
Although Deputy Chief Jia was not the station chief, he was supposed to be the one taking over the position of Station Chief. How can he not be able to settle such a small problem?
“They did agree to let us have a slot on the satellite channel. But the timing was not good. It was on Wednesdays after 10.30 PM. That timing will ruin this program.” Deputy Chief Jia was also unhappy about this. He was the producer of this Happy Dictionary variety show. There was a vast difference between CCTV 2, a satellite channel, and CCTV 3, a local channel.
If Chief Jia had not been promoted to the number one Deputy Station Chief, he would still be the head of CCTV 2. He had only been promoted recently, and now, no one in CCTV 2 listens to him!
The reason given to him left him speechless. The programs that were airing now had excellent ratings and cannot be replaced with Happy Dictionary. Also, the advertising fees for Happy Dictionary was too low! CCTV still does not know that the person who came up with this program was Feng Yu.
Feng Yu was also feeling helpless. There was no internet TV now. Wednesdays after 10.30 PM? How many ratings can this show get at this timing? A good variety show will be ruined!
“Then what about CCTV 1? There are no good time slots?”
“It is impossible for CCTV 1. The programs on CCTV 1 are all new and cannot be replaced. Also, the Station Chief oversees CCTV 1. I cannot go straight to the Station Chief.”
Deputy Chief Jia had made it very clear. The Station Chief still was not retired, and if he were to interfere with CCTV 1 programs, others would think that he was too eager to take over that position. It will affect his prospect of him being promoted.
“Then I will increase the advertising fees. It’s not a big deal. What does the head of CCTV 2 want? How much more advertising fees do I need to pay?” It must be the advertising fees was not enough.
“This is not about the advertising fees. Our show is set to be aired after the New Year. It was mainly because they do not think much about our program and felt that it is not worthy to be aired on a satellite!”
“Chief Jia, if this is the case, then I will go to other satellite channels. I heard that Ludong TV and Zhejiang TV will be starting their satellite channels. I think they will be happy to produce this variety show. I had made myself very clear. If it is not a satellite channel, it will ruin this program!”
“Feng Yu, it is useless. We have already started the preparations for this program. Do you think the other satellite channels can still produce similar programs?”
Fuck. They were hooligans. They had gotten the concept of my variety show, and now they were telling me that it cannot be aired on a satellite channel?
“Deputy Station Chief Jia. You are not fair to me!” Feng Yu addressed Chief Jia as Deputy Station Chief. He was very pissed with him. If this program were not on the satellite channel, the advertising effect would not be good. How would he answer to those participants he picked?
“Actually CCTV 3 is also not bad. It will also be converted to a satellite channel in 2 years. How about this? I will help you get two more good advertising slots during the coming auctions.” Deputy Station Chief was also feeling embarrassed.
“Chief Jia. Tell them that if this show is not on CCTV 2 primetime, then I will not be buying any advertising slots for the coming year!
Big corporation bullying the customer? Now it is the customer that intimidates the corporation!
