neologism / obsolescence

Interesting phrasing in this from the NYT on the MTV adaptation of the UK show Skins:

“Skins” is a calculated risk by MTV which is eager to get into the scripted programming business.

I wonder what effect it would have if those who would write fiction tried instead to write “scripted programming.” The former seems – and this phrasing shows it – more and more anomalous and out of sync with the way things are.
