From Kevin Arbouet:
So I'm sure everyone here knows about what's going on over at the CW & The Tyra Banks Show. After reading Friedman's blog, I got a little bit inspired and a whole lot pissed off. As someone who also produces reality television, we can't let this type of stuff go on any longer.

I'm pretty sure most of us have some sort of PR person in place and I'd love to start some kind of petition or something like that where we would all boycott the show until they got their act together. If Friedman can make a big stir about some snakes on an airplane, I hope we can all do the same for the writers of that show and any other show that tries to fuck over our fellow writers.

Is there any way we can take some time out from our schedules, organize, and make something happen? Maybe it's all futile but I think that we can probably embarrass them into doing something ESPECIALLY if we make this about Tyra Banks and not Ken Mok. Because at the end of the day...who the hel is Ken Mok? I'm guessing Tyra would rather die than hear that more than 2 people are mad at her.


I totally agree with the sentiment here that writers working on a Network show should be covered by health, pension, welfare, etc... they should be organized.

That said -

Kevin would have A HELLUVA LOT MORE CREDIBILITY if he called the show what it is:



That's another program entirely - a syndicated talk show. Kevin's display of ignorance is even more acute because he says he works in reality television.

Get with the (right) program or else the revolution won't be televised!

I wrote about this last week because some time ago I had come across an entry in Elise Sewell's LiveJournal where she talked about how rigged reality TV really is.

It's not new, but it is fairly independant confirmation of what we already know, from someone who has nothing to gain or lose from the situation.
