Is this person nuts?
Last night on my ride home I heard an "entertainment" report on a radio station. One of their stories was that someone (one of the interns) from the ABC hit show
Grey's Anatomy was going to be leaving the show.
Is this person NUTS?! Like the show or not its become a MASSIVE hit. Its pulling down 30+ Million viewers per week.
ER has lost a slew of cast members as well and only recently has George Clooney started to hit big. Where are Mark Green, Carter, Peter Benton (don't get me started on Carters 20 second f'ing cameo on ER last week). All of them left for "greener pastures". Well done..what were you pulling down per episode..250K per?
Oh I am burnt out is another one you hear. Stop..what is the life of a tv drama..sure there are shows that are on for 10+ years but call me crazy...250K per EPISODE of a multicast show can't be that hard of a job..it can't. Also these shows are tops 25 episodes a year. I'd say that 4 months per year they can easily "unwind" and "spend more time with the family". Everyone I know would take 4 months off a year if they could.
Whomever this person is that thinks there are better things..good luck. I'd say "cash in while the cashing in is good". I am sure after a season like this (or next) big contract negotiations could come down the pike.
