Maybe the question should be asked in KW - WHEN will it be on TV - but think the hat will be passed first ! - and it wont go to the TV Sponsor either ! it will line pockets as USUAL !

CAUTION - you are in the NO SPIN ZONE - J C !

This number is accurate and with 8 shows, that is $1,6000,000....There is NO WAY that they can do this...I have no clue what thee indians put in their piece pipes thinking that this was realistic, but it is, what it is....

That is an accurate price. I saw and subsidized Apba Offshore 2002 2003 budget. TV is not cheap.

From all the things I read about this UNITY IS THE KEY that is where it all has to start. I know it is easier said than done,just a thought.

I know the VP of Programming fairly well, and we have had this conversation many times (for this and other projects) and that has come down from $250,000/hr. since Nobama got his hands in messing everything up....When the economy wasn't getting murdered, that's what they were getting...so now its "only" $200,000 per hour...and the source couldn't be better IMHO...he's the only one who would be responsible for these transactions at CBS....
