Well, I got the call that Housecalls is done, CBS couldn’t find a sponsor to support the show. They told me that last season, and to be completely honest….
I thought they were full of shit. But, I guess they weren’t.
But that falls into the storyline of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”
I mean, how could they have a tough time selling sponsorships for the Big Brother 10 Season? They just came off the worst rated season in the shows history in the winter edition/writers strike season of BB9. But even though it was the worst TV ratings, it was record setting numbers for Housecalls (Thanks to all of you who tuned in…
and fuck you who didn’t…) They only tell you the ratings for your shifts while you are doing Housecalls, well they only told me my shifts, but did tell me that across the board that they were the biggest ratings… My shifts on Wed/Thurs the ratings trippled, getting us
OVER ONE THIRD OF THE TV AUDIENCE going online and watching me make all the producers sweat for their jobs every shift.
But whoever was selling the sponsorships that next season for BB10 (which I was told almost didn’t happen because of lack of a sponsor as well…) did a piss poor job selling the sponsorship for the show. I mean, worst TV ratings, best Housecalls ratings….
That is the selling point right there….
“Just wait until we have a regular audience this summer, if they can keep up that percentage, the show will break records for viewers!” Should have been their pitch. But who knows what the hell it was…
So here are my thoughts, reflexions and feelings about Housecalls…..
