Women's Entertainment thinks not. "We want to allow women to be passive, use TV as a sanctuary," says president Kate McEnroe. WE, owned by Rainbow Media, considered a complementary website but concluded it would only make women's lives more complicated. WE delivers on its promise not to be too taxing: on weeknights it airs Great Romances and Royal Families of the World, and in daytime, a "relationship-themed" talk show with Naomi Judd.
