... the beats of the dead.


After four seasons of BCS lost to the bad seasons of Game of Thrones I realized the Emmys are an even bigger joke than the Oscars.

YOUR MORTAL MODERATORS HAVE NO POWER OVER THIS POSTER!

No directing noms either, also they nominated Esposito but not Dalton. Absolute garbage.

Is it possible they’re saving the awards for the last season or something? I know that’s not how it’s ‘supposed’ to work, but maybe AMC will is a bigger awards push towards the end?

"I couldn't stop saying aloud how miscast Jim Carrey was!"


AMC the channel is separate from AMC the American cinema company (with like a single location north of the border in Toronto I think) so yeah, they'll be fine with TV ratings and ad-buys getting quite the boost since March. No idea if their Shudder streaming service is super profitable but it's probably doing better than Quibi!

You know what the Ukraine is? It's a sitting duck. A road apple, Newman. The Ukraine is weak. It's feeble. I think it's time to put the hurt on the Ukraine

Isn't that the opposite of what's been happening though? I think TV channels and newspapers are having trouble right now because the financial downturn brought on by the Coronavirus has caused companies to slash down on the amount of cash they were planning to spend on advertising.

Journalism outfits have been bleeding since 2004 and really turned for the worse around 2009; the rise of VC companies acquiring journalism outlets then bleeding them dry has only made things worse.

With national TV, no, generally advertisers are locked into long-term deals. Local TV affiliates are hurting, though, although there's been about a 25 percent increase in ad spends over the past few months, but for the most part after primetime hours and affiliates are just doing their syndication programming, you'll see the same four commercials three times in an hour.
