Why Television Sucks
went off the air last week, circumstances unclear, and she's not answering her mail, at least she's not answering mine. Jeff
wondered if it has anything to do with the HBO show, and sure enough, she comments:
I share all your feelings, bud. I do. I want the show to succeed too. I want Louis and HBO to shove it in the face of Network TV, and show how multiple camera can really be good and dynamic and interesting. And nothing would make me happier than working on that show. I just can't afford to lose that opportunity because someone linked to my blog and somehow people construed my comments as unsupportive.
Ah, well. That's the risk of blogging. If you tell the truth, someone's bound to get pissed off.
Well I hope she gets the job then. I know she was worried about doing a multiple camera sitcom, but I don't see the huge problem. For all the talk these past several years about how single camera comedies are the wave of the future, the top rated comedies on TV are all multiple camera shows.
Sorry, single-camera snobs, but a good series is good no matter how it's done. "Frasier" or "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" would have excelled in either multiple- or single-camera format. It still comes down to the writing.
