Skip to comments.Hillary’s $100 Million Hollywood Makeover (CBS's "Madam Secretary")
Posted on 09/22/2014 11:03:18 AM PDT by Dave346
The First Secretary of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia described the reforms which resulted in the Prague Spring as socialism with a human face. The New York Times calls Madam Secretary, CBSs extremely expensive prime time contribution to the Hillary campaign, Hillary with a human face.
A network series can cost between $3 and $4 million an episode. Assuming that Madam Secretary runs even one season, instead of being canceled ignominiously like Commander in Chief, the 2005 attempt at giving Hillary a human face, it will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million.
Thats double the $46 million that Hillarys campaign spent on TV ads against Obama and it gives the Hillary 2016 campaign over 20 hours of prime time network unpaid ad space. If the series lasts long enough to run through the whole campaign that will double to $200 million. But the Hillary 2016 campaign is expected to cost around $2 billion. CBSs $100 million donation is only a drop in a big bucket.
Theres more than a whiff of Kim Jong-Il, Stalin and Saddam Hussein about needing so many actors to portray a current politician. But Madam Secretary reeks of political insecurity. A similar series about Obama would have been worshipful. Madam Secretary is nervously revisionist. Its desperately trying to glue an appealing human face over the Hillary mask that Hillary Clinton wears over her real face.
Hillary wont be able to get anyone to play Hillary Clinton once she actually runs for office. Lori McCreary, the executive producer of Madam Secretary, said that she was inspired to create the $100 million Hillary infomercial by watching the Benghazi hearings.

I doubt it will last the full season............................
Co-Produced by Morgan Freeman.....
What difference at this time can it possibly make?
Not if they go just by ratings. I fortunately will never know if it's entertaining or not because I plan never to watch it.
I wanted to hurl the minute I saw the promos. Yee Gawds.
I really think it actually hurts her, although I guess they just6 cant see it. The woman playing the part is young, good-looking, smart, witty, looks competent and seems friendly. None of those things apply to Hillary. None of them.
HA! I probably would have watched it if they had called it: “What Difference Can It Make”. As it is, I’d rather go to Walmart and watch people than watch anything even remotely supports that Alinsky leftist.
And the production is so deceitful that they introduce the program by claiming it is non-political! The media are the open filth of the fifth column destrotying the Republic.
Madam Suckutary....will be touted as the next “hit series” if anyone even watches it...it wll go off the air with little fanfare if no-one watches beyond the first few episodes.
On cannot cover for her criminality, or outright nastiness.
attack the advertisers.
it is that simple.
no ads= no show.
who is the shows advertisers?
who has paid for product placement?
Do they have a facebook page?
Hillary is about power for power’s sake. She hides behind the cackle, outright lies (the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, descending into Bosnia under fire, named after Edmund Hillary, the list is almost endless),, select self-righteous anger (What difference does it make?), and playing the victim card when questioned about her husband. It’s hard to juggle all those techniques over the constant glare of almost 18 months of a campaign. No matter how sycophantic the press is....
As for the show, I predict a bomb that lasts four episodes.
I doubt if the series will be cancelled before November 2016 no matter how bad the ratings all. The TV networks are going all out to get Democrats elected. BTW, that is why there is so much coverage of the 4 NFL players who are wife beaters. It is part of the “war on women” get out the vote meme.
I'm sure you're right, and I'm equally sure that is all the producers really care about.
I painted the bathroom of the mobile home last night and watched the pain dry . It will last a lot longer than Hitlery or her series...this is so transparent its laughable
It'll be cancelled after the first Tuesday in November.
First episode got 14 million viewers but the only new content it went up against was Sunday Night Football (which got 18 million).
The official fall TV season begins tonight (it always begins on a Monday and ends on a Wednesday).
