Warning: I'm getting on a soapbox today.
We're in January now, and the bucket of crap that's otherwise known as "reality TV replacements for scripted shows" is beginning its slow dump over our heads. I am not watching AMERICAN GLADIATORS. I am not watching THE FARMER WANTS A WIFE (or...whatever it's called). I am not going to support anything that is being thrown at us in the hopes that it will take the place of PUSHING DAISIES or CHUCK or BROTHERS AND SISTERS.
A pox on the suits. I want my scripted shows, and if I don't get to see more than 8 episodes of LOST this season, I am going to be in a very longlasting vile mood that will make this diatribe seem like chirping from a happy bird.
And, IMHO, it's not up to the writers to solve this. Their demands are reasonable, and if you want to watch this brief video, that point will be driven home. I mean, how can the studios maintain that "they're not sure" if the Internet/digital forms of shows will make much money and then say what they say in these clips?
Watch and wonder....
