So this morning, all the employees at our studio got a memo saying they were merging our Network with a rival one. Now, to me this sounds like an excuse to fire a lot of people but here…decide for yourselves:
“Today we announced, in conjunction with CBS Corporation, that we are launching a fifth broadcast network, “The CW” in September 2006. This new network is a joint venture between Warner Bros. and CBS. As a result, at the end of this current season, we and CBS are ceasing to operate The WB and UPN, respectively, to create a dynamic new enterprise. Press release
This was not an easy decision to make. While we are extremely excited about this new opportunity, it is a bittersweet moment as we conclude the 11 year run of The WB.”
True that is only part of it, but it seems that other people have picked up on the same sentiment (Here and Here). Not only is our resolve being tested on the professional front, but my wife is being tested on the home front. Anyone that can hold down a full time job, raise two kids and do most of the housekeeping should be gilded and have a month named after her, or at least a season. Maybe a good trip to Hawaii would be reward enough though, sometime in the…future.
and because the idea is so very, very funny: Narnia Rap Battle
