Two for One

Another video. This time it's a clip from The Office to remind us all that a new episode should have been on air tonight, but isn't due to the writer's strike.

I fully support the writers and am very impressed that so many celebrities are out there marching and picketing with them. These people get paid very little to create the fabulous storylines for shows like The Office, Late Night With Conan O'Brien, Desperate Housewives, and Ugly Betty. There is no reason for the studios to collect as much as they do. I can't remember the exact numbers but they get incredibly small percentages of the profits, and don't receive anything for internet sales.

In a video on YouTube, members of the cast and crew of The Office were interviewed about their positions and opinions about the writer's strike. They all marched alongside the writers, while two people who helped to write all of the webisodes that you can find on YouTube, and that NBC requested they create revealed that they weren't paid anything for creating these at all, even though they are wildly popular and make the studio a ton of money.

So I'm going to start posting clips and fanvids from my favourite TV shows every once in awhile to show my support for the writers. Hopefully they get what they deserve soon.

    Just back from vacation, and catching up on my reading. I had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and thank YOU for the well-wishes.
