Indeed it is expensive, and a great challenge. Reality shows are the cheapest to produce, which is why they are (unfortunately) so common.

Don't worry, I won't let the man get me down. Music is easy to produce and market these days, and perhaps TV will be as well within the next 5-10 years.

And yes, I do intend on getting a related degree. Hell, if I could find a place where I could be creative and work on this stuff 24/7, I'd never leave. Getting a degree for that would be great.

It's always important to love what you do. None of the greats got where they were out of obligation.

Agreed. But, not everyone would. Sadly. I ought to have added "stick figures" to my list of things I like.

I also like to draw a face on a finger at work and pretend that finger is one of my employees, or my new boss.

Yeah, it's called "adult swim"

Cartoon Network has some of the worst animation I've ever seen. Check out this show:

Glad you are planning to pursue this field in college, that'll help.

By the way, reality shows cost a ton to produce. Well, let me amend that. Some of them cost a ton, some do not. Survivor, Amazing Race, Hells Kitchen...those shows are expensive. Things like Surreal World, or other VH1 shitty reality shows are a lot cheaper. And it shows.

Yeah, never EVER take your eye off of the man.

12oz mouse is hilarious, but, definitely designed to have a cult/niche following. Of the 15 or so people I've shown some of the show to, 3 fucking loved it, the rest totally disliked it.

They're not expecting nor are they garnering strong ratings for that show. Which is ok, since the production costs are fairly low.

Haha yeah, that's what I've figured. I have no idea what's about, but I've only given it passing glances anyway.

It's not really about too much. It's very VERY surreal. It hurts my head, and I mean that in a good way. It's very random, too. You really have to be of a certain mind set to like it. The people I showed it to that disliked it are all people whose taste and opinions I respect, but it just was too much, or too little, for them. Fuck 'em, it cracks me up.

Oh Pokey, how I loveth thee.




And as for reality tv, despite prevading beleifs, according to my stats project last year they are not the prevading show, it is deffineatly all about the crime drama's.
The CSI monopoly, the Law & Orders, Numbers, Without a Trace, Criminal Minds, etc etc etc

Of course, my study was limited in scope...only looked at the neilson ratings during the sweeps seasons...

It makes me think of Radiohead's Paranoid Android video, which could only be a good thing.

Hey, I never said reality shows were the most succesful, just on the expensive side, for the well done ones. Bear in mind, though, that American Idol, which is still a dominant force, is a reality show, so that's part of any analysis regarding TV genres that fare well.

Brighty, I could talk all day about the business of TV, but, since this is what I do for a living, and since it bores me even when at work, I'll shut up now.

Loveth, nice.

Easy, Tre. Deep breaths. Reality TV is the bane of my existence, I'm with you.

Oops, my apologies Pokey, I didn't mean to bring the bore on.




For the record though, I believe AI did make it into our analysis....and we covered the last 5-10 years...I can no longer remember all the details.
It was fun though.
But of course, I don't do it for a living.
