Celebs on strike

33644813.jpgI just found out that many many tv show’s casts are on strike right now! The Office, 30 Rock, Battlestar Galactica, Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy, The Shield…you name it. An excerpt from Tina Fey:

“The honks from drivers passing by were deafening and constant, and greatly, greatly appreciated – keep honking! NBC even sent down an *intern* to beg us to quit encouraging the honking, as it was ‘distracting’ to the suits inside. We’ll get right on that. ”

This is pretty interesting entertainment. I mean,  the shows are airing reruns due to the strike. How much you wanna bet that people who are addicted to their primetime tv (me) are going to get fussy real soon? All this is going down because writers are pissed they aren’t getting payments for shows aired online…I don’t know what the repercussions will be for this. Stay tuned! Because you can’t watch your fav shows anyway.

  1. I was reading that primetime shows are actually pretty safe because they typically have at least this season’s writing completed and often the next season.

    I’m just telling you what I heard 🙂

  2. good riddance writers. its my hopes that this strike will sink you, your average scripts and union. if i were to drop $10 million on a hotel, i can’t imagine having to pay the framers, the plumbers, the electricians or the designers everytime i rent out a room. do your job, get paid for it and go away. if you’ve done a good enough job, i’ll hire you again. if you haven’t, go teach at the local college. tv sucks and you and your union are the reason.

    why the hell can’t your scripts be as witty as your bloggings? why the hell can’t your monologues be as funny as your picket signs?

    i can only hope that 20 weeks from now i find an article on the strike buried deep somewhere and the ratings are shooting through the roof.

    same for SAG. i will relish the day they can completely animate your sorry a** and you have to join my sorry a** from 9 to 5 – building hotels.
