Sit On It
"The writers-strike takedown of the Golden Globes last week has those who participate in the $300 million-Oscar economy shaking in their red-soled Louboutins.
The continuing action by the Writers Guild of America helped scotch the always-bawdy Golden Globes ceremony broadcast on NBC, because the Globes producer, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, couldn't negotiate an interim deal with the striking scribes. That could end up costing the network some $10 million to $15 million if Golden Globes advertisers ask for cash back -- the event brought in some $27 million in revenue last year, according to TNS Media Intelligence."
"You are such wonderful Moonlight fans, I have no doubt that you are writing and calling CBS about our show. :) I just want to encourage you to keep up the good work! Moonlight has received some great news lately.... winning the People's Choice Award, Les Moonves saying it is "likely to return," being number one in our time slot this past Friday, etc. I know that Alex O'Loughlin's humble acceptance speech gained many new viewers! Even though wonderful things have happened for our show, we can not let our guard down. Please, continue to ask the network to renew Moonlight!"
