But, wouldn’t you have to join the screen actor’s guild?
When I said they couldn’t pay me to watch the crap on TV I never imagined they’d take me up on it! But I’m sticking to it...They can’t pay me to watch their crap.
Film Actors Guild...?
You would have to pay me a lot to watch hillary clinton’s speeches.
Wouldn’t want to watch maxine waters with the dog in the room - animal cruelty.
The stuff is so bad...they want to pay you to watch....which indicates what their motive is...if they can slowly induce you to buy products by their propaganda...er...programming...they get money from the sponsors...what they bill as entertainment or social realities is all meant to induce the viewer to spend money. We need to stay away from it and keep telling our friends to do the same. The whole modern entertainment industry is a complete farce.
You couldn’t pay me enough to watching about 80% of the crap on NBCU, even if you included the other 3 major broadcast networks.
Would this venue also have ads? They take up about 1/3 of each hour of programming. Cut that by 90% and people might start watching regular TV again. Until then, I use TiVo to record most programs, as it allows skipping or flashing through commercials.
Life is so much better without "TV"
I think this is the beginning of a complete restructuring, in television.
The internet is going to replace it.
When it does, television will have this new set-up, to support itself, from ads.
For a while anyway.
