Spread the Wealth, Already

The writer’s strike is taking its toll on our mealtime video viewing. Normally, we watch clips of Colbert or Kimmel, sometimes Fallon, but now all that’s available is news, if one wants to call it “news.” And the news is approaching unwatchable territory.

I don’t know what their gripe is, though it’s a safe bet it has something to do with adequate financial compensation. Didn’t we go through this a few years ago? Has the landscape changed that much already, or is this some post-Covid bump that’s just now catching up with the entertainment “industry”?

Interesting concept to begin with—the host gets the marquee, but basically he or she is just delivering lines written by someone else? Hell of a way to make a living. But that’s entertainment. That’s Hollywood. Big bucks can be made.
