TV Junkie: Olympics On Top; LA to Get More Showbiz Jobs in 2010
So far this week the Olympics have only been beaten by the trite duo of "American Idol" and "The Bachelor", thus putting NBC way ahead of all other networks in terms of ratings. We would like to thank everyone for their great comments on Monday's Olympic post. It's an event we all love and we just want to see it communicated somewhere close to its full potential. If you would like to send messages directly to NBC, send your email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and be specific about what it is you like or don't like about their coverage and please use clean language, there's a better chance your message will be read and passed along.
Watch for our posts from Whistler next week.
The Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation states that the TV and film production will add about 10,000 jobs in 2010 compared to 2009's decline of 9,000 jobs. Wonder how many of those jobs are at production companies scrambling to fill the 10pm time slot for NBC.
We interviewed Brittany Curran from TNT's "Men of a Certain Age" a few weeks ago and she notified us of a contest she's holding to get swag from the show as well as other Hollywood legends present and past (Lucille Ball's autograph?). The details are in this video. "Men of a Certain Age" season finale is next Monday.
