do you have a post with any of the other jokes or….
Are you going to retract or update this any time soon? The Pride Council has emphatically stated there’s no truth to this since yesterday.

Response to CNN’s 24 Hours Of Poop Ship:
Well, pretty sure that blew out the budget for the rest of 2013. Good Job, Zuk. Also, get outta here Chris Cuomo.
so many contradictions and non-compatible comparisons in this pieceIdo not know where the hell to begin. Netflix (like HBO & Sho-but not AMC) do not have to play to nielsen ratings/advertising money the same way network does. The idea that Game of Thrones or True Blood have ‘broad appeal’ is laughable-HBO tookahuge gamble and on material that on paper are based in extremely niche genres (remember TB came before the Twihards) those two paid off in major dividends.Ihave my own reservations with the business model Netflix is using in the distribution of HoC but this thesis is moot when you factor in that Netflix will be able to gage how many people watch their show over time-not just in the fraction of time alotted to be counted as Nielsen boxes do now (including the rarely included DVR count). Also, if the price tag is $100m for TWO seasons of 13, that isacheap ass show to produce-2x13=26, $100m/26= $3.8m/ep. Pretty sure it’s about $100m for the whole first season, which still wouldn’t bat many eyelashes inaroom of execs as the pilot for Boardwalk Empire alone came to $40m+ (weigh in the Scorcese/BE and Fincher/HoC costs as you see fit). Will this be the model of the future? Can’t say, butican say that this piece was bullshit.
