3. O Great one

Why is TV so crappy anymore?
Why do reality shows have so little to do with reality?

How much will Michigan win by Monday?

4. Here you go…

1. Producers and studios are making shows on the cheap, in order to maximize their profit margin. Skimping on talent, writers, actors and directors, entertainment has been turned into a factory far, producing cheap goods that they can sell at high price.

This is why you see a preponderance of cheap, amateur talent shows, in place of the professional variety fare of the past. Instead of depending on artists who earn their rep, they've decided to create "stars," many of which have never benefitted from professional and classical training, rigorous practice and development.

Now, it cost too much money to put real talent on TV and professional talent, for what it's worth, is finding it harder to get work. If they do, they find out that the compensation for their skills is less that what it used to be.

2. Again. it speaks to the cheapness and ready availability of hiring amateur talent, contriving phony drama and drawing an increasingly unsophisticated audience to watch what is the entertainment equivalent of cheap calories. Less investment upfront spells a higher rate of return on that investment.

3. A shitload.

7. If you don't know and you have to bribe someone…

Then you're not doing it right.

But you can send me money… It won't do you any good, though.

6. How are Hamtramck jokes like Parma jokes?

Parma being in Ohio. My Midwest roots are showing.

Question #2. For bonus points. Oh fount of wisdom, which television presenter and propagator of said Parma jokes has a famous film director son?

No one jokes about Hamtramck

Are you talking about The Ghoul? I watched that show when I was a kid. Loved it and Froggy too.

Cheez Whiz, baby!
