The Simpsons should have ended YEARS ago. The first seasons were fine, but they have sucked since 2000
i like it very funny all posts....
"The Simpsons" is the longest-running comedy series on U.S. television and is currently in its 23rd season on Fox. The show also generates billions of dollars through global syndication, as well as DVD and merchandise sales.
The Fox statement followed a report on news website The Daily Beast that the principal voice cast members -- including the voices for Homer (Dan Castellaneta), Marge (Julie Kavner), Bart (Nancy Cartwright) and Lisa (Yeardley Smith) -- were having difficulty renegotiating contracts that currently see them earning around $8 million each per season.
While I don't give a "rats ass" either way (I haven't watched The Simpsons" in quite a few years) about the show ending, I also do not care to see a network taking advantage of the characters on the show. That is the way I see it when I read the parts of the quote in bold.
I do hope they stick together and stand up for the pay.
With that said, I do find it sad that ANYBODY in the entertainment industry feels that they "deserve" millions of dollars per season (or episode) just to act like something they are are not.
How much did the actors in the M*A*S*H series make?
How much did the actors for Gilligan's Island make?
I've never heard any of them bitch and whine.
All the people do in the animated shows is pure voice. They don't have to do anything else. Just use the vocal cords.
I do realize it is more than just simply speaking, but............really?
Whatever, off my soap box for now.
Just some random thoughts from a random idiot! :)
