Call to action: write a letter!

Tori said it in her review. The Office’s Michael Schur and Jen Celotta said it in the chat room. And now I am officially appealing to Tallyheads and Office fans everywhere —

The best thing you can do to support the writers during the WGA strike is to write a letter. Specifically, write a letter to Jeff Zucker, President and CEO of NBC/Universal.

Be articulate. Be polite. Tell Mr. Zucker that you’re an Office fan and you want your show back. That you won’t watch any replacement programming until The Office returns.

Check out various Tallyhead letters in the comments below.

Let’s get the entire Office staff back where they belong, doing what they do best: making our favorite show.

Mail letters to:
Jeff Zucker
30 Rockefeller Plaza
New York, NY 10112

P.S. The Office staff has heard every other idea that you guys have had — from boycotting DunderMifflinInfinity.com, to not watching The Office online, to turning off your TV altogether. Again, Michael Schur says “we can’t quite figure out what the right move is with digital media stuff for right now, but we do know that writing letters is good.” As for a DMI boycott, I spoke to another Office writer who says, “DMI has nothing to do with the Writers’ Guild strike. The strike is only about scripted content, so keep on participating in DMI and reading the character blogs. It’s all we’ve got right now!”

  1. Dear Mr. Zucker,
    My name is _____ _______ and I am __ years old. I am a huge Office fan, and on behalf of the rest of my fellow fans, I have a message for you: we will not accept any non-WGA television programs. We are prepared to boycott online episodes. We are prepared to boycott television, altogether. We will not, however, watch The Apprentice, America’s Got Talent, or The Singing Bee. Nothing can replace The Office, and we are prepared to do whatever it takes to get our favorite show back. Now, in the words of Michael Scott: “You have one day.”

    Thank You,

    Just in case you wanted to post it. I’m sending one to each.

  3. Mr. Zucker,

    I am writing on behalf of thousands of troubled fans all over the country. We are extremely disappointed in your choice to withhold reasonable compensation for the writers of shows involved with your network, such as The Office, my personal favorite. In my opinion, the writers of these shows deserve to be fairly reimbursed for all online media such as The Office Webisodes that aired last summer and all Internet downloads, including those from iTunes.

    The internet has become the new place to view your favorite television shows and it seems only right to fairly compensate those whose work is being displayed online. I think (and I’m sure I could get more than a few people to agree with me on this), that the writers of these shows, the people who are responsible for making these shows are as good as they are, should be paid for their work.

    Take The Office for example; it is an EMMY WINNING comedy series that has accumulated an overwhelming fan base over the past few years. After the strike is resolved, imagine losing an amazing show, possibly even more than one, from your network AND several thousands of viewers in the process.

    This is not good for business nor the fans, to say the least.

    I think you get my point. All I ask is that you please at least think about what I, a member of the majority, am trying to get across to you. It would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my letter.

  4. Dear Mr. Zucker,

    I am writing this letter to ask you to please do whatever it takes to get The Office back on the air. As a viewer from the pilot, I am very upset to see my favorite show go into reruns because of the writer’s strike. Never in my life have I felt more connected to a group of fictional people than I do the Dunder-Mifflin clan. I recently attended The Office Convention in Scranton, PA and found a new appreciation for the writing staff. They are the reason the show is as successful as it is. Their work is invaluable.

    As someone who has always considered NBC their television home, it pains me to see my favorite shows stop production. The Office has made NBC cutting edge with their webisodes, DunderMifflinInfinity.com and iTunes episodes. The Office writers deserve to compensation for the extra work they put in.

    Until the writer’s are given what they deserve, I will not watch NBC in any form. I cannot support the online episodes or the reruns. I refuse to watch any content of lesser value such as reality television. I have encouraged all of my friends and family to do the same. As a college student, I am in your advertising target demographic. It is my age group that has made The Office, Heroes and other NBC shows as popular as they are.

    I strongly encourage you to compensate the writer’s for the hard work that they put in. They are the heart of the industry. Thank you so much for your time.

  5. My letter (email)was to the AMPTP…

    I will not be watching any content on studio/network websites until I know that the writers of that content are compensated for it. I will urge any advertisers on those websites to discontinue buying ads there, since their ads will not be seen.

    Further, when my favorite shows are in repeats, I will not be watching them. I will not see your advertisers’ commercials.

    Feel free to air all the reality TV you wish; I will not be watching that either.

    When an episode airs on the web, and advertising is sold and played during it, it’s only fair that the writers be compensated for it. This includes scripted clips like The Office webisodes. The AMPTP can call these ‘promos’ all they want; it doesn’t make it the truth. A ‘promo’ is something one runs to get people to watch a show. A webisode *is* a show.

    I’m not in any way related to the television or motion picture industries, nor am I a writer. What I *am* is a consumer who won’t be consuming your products, and one who won’t be tempted by your advertiser’s products. If a product is advertised when no one is watching, does it make a sound?

    Be fair. Pay people when their work goes out on ‘new’ media.

  6. Dear Mr. Zucker,

    I am writing to show my support of the WGA writer’s strike, and to sincerely request that successful negotiations take place soon so that we can have the return of our beloved show – The Office.

    As a 30-year-old, young, business professional, I feel confident in saying that the talent and enthusiasm that goes into writing scripts for The Office is a gift that cannot go unnoticed, rewarded or fairly compensated. The genius that is The Office has become such a priority for me that I not only schedule life events around its airing, but I have also made it my personal goal in life to convert as many co-workers and family members into Office fans. Needless to say, I take every aspect behind this hit show, from writing to producing to acting, seriously. Furthermore, I have the utmost respect for all individuals involved in the creation of this hit show.

    Some may say the writers are just being selfish or it’s a matter of the rich wanting to become richer. However, I would suggest that it is human beings willing to stand up for what they believe in and risk their livelihoods to have a voice. In today’s society, that is something I can respect and support. In support of the WGA strike, I will not view non-WGA programming until The Office returns.

    I appreciate you taking the time to read my letter and to consider my point of view.

  7. Well mine is addressed to the AMPTP but you can improvise. You’re very witty:

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I’d like to express to you my concern over the current WGA strike.

    I consider myself a fairly informed and eager consumer of television and film, but even more so when it’s easy to see the talented writing that goes into creating a particular show. You might consider that an exaggeration, but it’s true. Since being exposed to programs such as NBC’s The Office, ABC’s Lost and Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, I’ve come to realize just how entertaining and smart television can be.

    All three shows I just mentioned have been or have recently begun to take full advantage of the Internet. It’s no surprise. Convergence should happen. Finally, shows like The Office were able to harness the power of an online audience. But it seems studios and organizations such as yours, are doing so while taking advantage of those responsible for the content: the writers.

    AMPTP needs to acknowledge the unfair compensation system for online distribution and the severely reduced cost of producing a home DVD. WGA is not trying to take what is not rightfully theirs, but rather what they’ve been entitled to all along. I hope you can see the difference. I hope you’ll make a change for the better.

    In support of the Writers Guild of America, I will not view any non-WGA programs until this strike is settled in appreciation and respect for hard-working writers that make entertainment possible.

    With regards,
    Matt Collins

  8. Dear Mr. Zucker,

    I am writing in support of the WGA strike as a dedicated viewer of The Office.

    When an incredible show comes along, it creates a different kind of fan base. We emotionally invest in the cast, the crew, and the gifted writers who are the lifeblood of any television show.

    This means that we will not watch the gimmicky reality shows filling the time slot of our favorite show. We will not fall for claims that airing ad-filled full episodes on the Internet is a mere promotional tactic. We will fight for the writers’ entitlement to fair residuals from their work. That’s the risk you run when you have the smartest people in Hollywood as writers.

    You get the smartest fan base staunchly behind them.

    Thank you,
    nv

  9. I kind of borrowed from others on this site…

    Mr. Zucker,

    My name is __________and I am writing this letter to urge you to be the first to put an end to the awful WGA writer’s strike that is currently plaguing the entire entertainment industry.
    I am a ____ year old ((college student)), a member of your key demographic , and have always valued the programming on NBC to be the best and responsible for some of the most memorable and valuable moments on television. From the classic sitcoms of Cheers, Seinfeld and Friends and the ground breaking dramas of Law and Order and ER, to the current hits The Office, 30 Rock and Heroes, NBC has always been on the cutting edge in entertainment.
    Today however, The Office, which in my opinion is the BEST thing to ever grace the NBC line-up and perhaps all of television, is in jeopardy. It was easy to see from my very first viewing of the pilot that your network had stumbled upon something genius. Finally, we had something to fill the void left by retired sitcoms of old. It is hilarious, edgy, and most of all it has heart. It was the first to produce webisodes, and was the flagship program for iTunes, receiving MILLIONS of downloads with absolutely none of the money going to the creative geniuses you are so lucky to have. Whether your network would like to admit it or not, our little show is what revived your dying line-up and brought NBC back as a contender once again.
    I urge you to end this strike now and be like the programming you employ, be the first, and show some heart for the people that give you the ratings and draw the advertisements you so desperately want to keep to yourselves. They are looking to the future of television and their families, and they, just like you, realize it is with the internet and that they are being robbed of their talents by not being compensated.
    On behalf of the rest of my fellow fans, I have a message for you: we will not accept any non-WGA television programs. We are prepared to boycott online episodes. We are prepared to boycott television, altogether. We will not watch The Apprentice, America’s Got Talent, or The Singing Bee. Nothing can replace The Office, and we are prepared to do whatever it takes to get our favorite show back. Now, in the words of Michael Scott: “You have one day.”

    Sincerely,

    _________

  10. Dear Mr. Zucker,

    Thank you for your work in creating some of the highest quality television programming available to the viewers of the world. However, many of your hard-earned fans are stunned by the events of the recent WGA strike.
    This letter is to plead for a timely and successful negotiation between your company and the members of the WGA. By fairly compensating those who work hard to help create successful shows such as The Office, you have the opportunity to show that you indeed lead a company that is committed to excellence and providing the finest television entertainment to your dedicated fan-base. However, filling the time slots that were originally dedicated to these new shows with repeats, reality shows, and other non-WGA programming is unfortunately proving the opposite. These shows can only be perceived as filler, and will not be supported by the millions of fans across the globe who have faith in a company that truly supports its creative collaborators.
    We urge you to consider the requests of all who are involved, and prove your dedication to your fan-base by no longer delaying the shows that hold our enthusiasm and support. The writers and actors in your employ can do nothing but provide you with the superior results you are looking for when they are treated with fairness and integrity. There is plethora of evidence proving the excellent work these writers and actors have done, and why not reward the people who contribute to the success of your company.
    Thank you for your open-mindedness and consideration. We look forward to a swift negotiation and your willingness to show your company’s potential for fan dedication. I wish you the best of luck with the negations and thank you for your time and consideration.

    Ben Inniger

  11. Dear Mr. Zucker,

    I’ve never written to a studio executive before, but then I’ve never loved a TV show as much as I love The Office. Please do whatever you can to reach a fair and equitable compensation agreement with the WGA so the writers, and actors, and crews can go back to work.
    As the Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin Infinity, Reno, I know how important it is to keep customers happy. I don’t have the luxury of telling my customers to just use the other side of the paper, or worse, switch to a cheaper quality because our paper producers are on strike. It would be years
    before I could lure them back from Staples, and the cost of the gift baskets alone would break us.
    We Dunder Mifflinites are dedicated to The Office and the talented people who write the words, and say the words, hold the cameras, and do all the work required to produce the best show on television. We went to Scranton for heaven’s sake!
    Please consider The Office fans, your customers, and resolve this issue quickly and fairly.

    Sincerely yours,

  12. To whom it may concern:
    I am a viewer of intelligent television only. As long as the writer’s strike persists I will not watch any alternative programing or “reality” television. Replacing creative and well-written shows, such as “The Office”, with sub-par mindless drivel is insulting to the viewers and the creative minds alike. Please give the writers what they deserve for their imagination and artistry.
    Respectfully,
    xxx

  13. Dear Mr. Zucker,

    I am writing in as a dedicated fan of the show The Office and a supporter of the WGA strike. I have been a fan of the show for two years, and I have never seen a show equal to it in quality. It is the smartest comedy on television, and all thanks for that go to the writers. The Office is the only TV show I watch and I am very sad to see it go into reruns. I have never been more emotionally invested in a TV show. I feel like I know and love all the characters in the show. A show as genius as this only comes around once in a lifetime. I know I am not alone in saying this: I will not watch the reruns you put in place of my beloved show. I will not watch the reality TV you use as a filler. In fact, I am completely boycotting my TV until this strike is over.

    The Office has taken TV on the internet to the next level. They won an emmy for their webisodes (Which the writers were never paid for, by the way). Thousands of fans joined dundermifflininfinity.com so they could pretend to work for their favorite company. When The Office was sold on itunes, it was almost always the top selling show of the week. Deleted scenes, and now full episodes are shown online. Many of my friends are busy on Thursday nights, and they ONLY watch the show on the internet. It is only fair that the writers get paid every time their work is used.

    If The Office is taken off the air, NBC will lose millions of dedicated viewers. The Office has the most dedicated fanbase of any show on TV today. Personally, I will not watch NBC until The Office is back in production. And I don’t think it’s worth it to lose an emmy winning show and thousands of fans over refusing to give talented writers the pay they deserve. So please, give the writers their fair share, and get The Office back on TV.

    Thank you for listening,

  14. Dear NETWORK EXECUTIVE:

    I don’t watch reality TV. I don’t watch reruns.

    I love clever writing, though. I delight in it. For a show that I love, I will become a major fan – the kind that starts a fan site, spends way too much money on merchandise, and tries to get all of her friends to start watching the show as well. I’ve hosted viewing parties for my favorite shows. I’ve made cupcakes decorated in honor of my favorite shows. I have single-handedly turned ten friends and acquaintances from being entirely uninterested in my favorite show, “The Office,” into fans who now consider it appointment television.

    Whether an episode is being watched on a television or on a website, it is an episode, and it is being watched. If money is being made from it, then the people who created it deserve a fair portion of it.

    I will not watch shows or buy merchandise or tell my friends to watch programs that are not created by smart and talented writers who receive fair compensation for their invaluable creative work. Until the writers get what they deserve, I am on strike, too. I look forward to again celebrating the quality television aired on your network once the minds behind that quality television are paid for all of the formats in which their work appears.

    Sincerely,
    NAME

  15. Dear Mr. Zucker,
    In light of the recent WGA strike, I have decided to write this letter to express my appreciation and support for the hard working writers of television. These writers work day in and day out to deliver quality television programs to our homes every week.
    Writers deserve to be compensated for their hard work. It is only fair that they receive some source of revenue (which, for many writers, is used to put food on the table) for their work. I’m not a supporter of greed, and would not be writing you this letter if I truly did not believe that the writers deserve to be listened to and to be remunerated.
    I also wanted to express my support for the actors and numerous other crew members of shows such as THE OFFICE, that are shutting down during this time to support the creators of their series. Without the writers of this magnificent, witty, award winning television program, the American Office would be just another sad attempt at adapting a hugely successful comedy program. Instead, the hard working, dedicated, intelligent writers made this Emmy Award winning television show a huge hit. I think it is only fair that they are compensated for their work, regardless of how it is viewed (on the television, through the internet, or on a cell phone.)
    The sooner this strike ends, the sooner these television shows can go back to producing large amounts of revenue for your network. Crew members can get their jobs back (to support themselves and their families), and writers can continue to produce hilarious sitcoms. Television fans will be very happy to get our favorite shows back as well. Until then, I will continue to support the writers, producers, and actors who are standing up for themselves and their hard work.
    Thank you for your time.
    Sincerely,

  16. A word of advice from an assistant. If you send them a long, boring letter, you lose their interest realllllllllly quick. Say what you want to say in the first line. The show I work on was boycotted and it was the people who spoke their mind in the first lines who made a difference over the ones who wrote us a novel. So here is probably the best letter to write: (yes it might be a little negative, but the advice you were given was don’t be nasty, but hit em)
    ———————

    Mr. Zucker,

    NBC has long established Thursday night’s as Must-See TV and now more recently Comedy Night Done Right. If The Office is taken off the air in mid season and replaced with some unscripted, lame, time filler reality show, that isn’t must see and it certainly isn’t right. There is only one way to ensure that Comedy Night is Done Right and that is to keep your must see programs on the air and right now the only programs people must see are the ones written by creative geniuses who plan every shot, not editors who are given hours and hours of footage and told to make a show out of that footage, ie reality. Sadly, this letter won’t make difference so it must get pretty bad for you before it gets better, and I can’t say you don’t deserve it. Sometimes it takes a man to make a mistake before he figures out how to prevent that mistake again and I only hope you won’t treat the actors like you do the writers.

    Mr. Zucker, I wish you a wonderful time in the upcoming future as I am sure it is going to make your life beyond miserable everytime you run into a fan or a writer asking you why did you do that? Good luck.

    —–
    I hope this wasn’t too harsh, its hard not to when you know he’s a main reason behind so many unemployments.

    thanks,

    andrew

  17. Dear AMPTP or whom it may concern,

    Be aware, you are going to lose lots of money and lots of viewers if this strike continues. I am a fan who is 100% in support of the writers (and there are thousands just like me), we are outraged at what is taking place, not just for our beloved shows disappearing but for all those concerned who will be losing their jobs, losing money, or losing the wonderful ability to entertain us because of this strike.

    I am telling you with absolute certainty that a movement is taking place among the fans to boycott all network television as soon as our shows officially go off the air, our televisions will be off! And we won’t stop there, if need be, we will boycott all online outlets and DVDs that are associated with our shows, no more online web watching, no more downloads, no more DVD purchasing will come from us until this strike is over! We support the writers, we support what they are asking for, and they deserve to get their compensation.

    I am an avid watcher of The Office on NBC and I’ve become associated with an online Office community which continues to grow daily, we are strong, we don’t give up, and our voices will be heard. We support our show and writers with such intensity that we are willing to give up what we have to in order to get them back.

    Picture this, one (of the many sites dedicated to The Office) had something like 2 million page views in the month of October alone, now let’s imagine that even just 1000 of those visitors read the pleas for help and decide to boycott. If every one of them went on to convince 10 to 15 people to turn off their TVs to network television, and boycott everything online associated with it until the strike ends, you’re looking at something like 10,000 to 15,000 people alone for a loss of viewer ship, and that’s generated from just one site, for just one show! There are hundreds of sites with just as many dedicated fans out there willing to do what they can for the cause.

    If you think I’m just one viewer writing in, and how much can I really believe this will happen, or whether I can change anything, hear this; ever heard of a thing called lots and lots of NUTS being delivered to CBS for a little show called Jericho? Yeah, we viewers mean business and we will get out there and fight. We WILL blackout our TVs. That’s how much our shows (writers, actors, directors, and their crews included) mean to us, and how much we want them back.

    So let’s look at what you have, you have determined actors and writers no longer producing work out there on the picket lines, you have angry fans who support them who are going to be turning off their TVs (we don’t care WHAT you intend to put temporarily in its place). So essentially you have a whole bunch of people angry at you and not supporting you. So where does that leave you AMPTP, studio execs, and all you other decision makers? Why deny the writers what they are in all fairness due? Why deny the fans our shows? Because without us watching and downloading, you wouldn’t be making any money anyway, and without the writers there would simply be no shows.

    Make the right decision, end this strike, bring back our shows, keep the movies from being tainted even more, GIVE THE WRITERS WHAT THEY DESERVE!

    Sincerely,

    Sarah H.

  18. To Whom It May Concern:

    I am writing to register my complete support of the Writers Guild in their strike. I will not watch any programming that replaces new episodes when they run out. I will not buy any DVDs or view any non-WGA programming until the strike ends.

    Unfortunately for you, I am part of your most precious demographic—a college kid with money to burn. I am easily susceptible to your advertising, and frequently buy things for which I have no use just because I see them advertised in the middle of your shows.

    Writers deserve to be fairly compensated for their creations, whether they are viewed on TV, online, or in any other form. As a fan of The Office, I was especially outraged to hear that the show’s writers were not fairly compensated for their work on the amazing webisodes produced last year.

    Calling a full-length episode or a webisode a “promotion” so that you don’t have to compensate the writers is blatantly deceitful and unfair. Writing is not the most stable career, and residuals are a necessity for any semblance of job security.

    I am educating all of my friends about the strike (also college kids, many of whom have more money to burn and spend it more compulsively than I do) and encouraging them to take the same action that I am taking. I’m also spreading the word through the use of this new untested media called “the internets.”

    I urge you to do whatever you can to help move negotiations along so that a fair contract can be agreed upon and the writers can come back to work.

    Sincerely,
    Shannon B.

  19. Dear Mr. Zucker:

    I am a loyal fan of two of NBC’s Thursday night comedies – “The Office” and “30 Rock”, both of which distinguish themselves from other network comedies for one primary reason – the writing. Many other shows feature talented actors and flawless production, but I choose to watch shows based on the quality of their writing. Since the writers are the primary reason I tune in to your programming, should they not be compensated for their work when I choose to purchase it on iTunes or Amazon.com or if I watch episodes on NBC.com after viewing the ad spots that precede them?

    I’ve heard a figure of between $90,000 and $200,000 tossed around as an average writer’s salary. If this is the median salary, then obviously there are a lot of writers making much less money. Many, if not most, are working-class participants in the production of a successful television program – they don’t enjoy the extravagant salaries that many marquee actors AND producers do. The AMPTP isn’t fooling anyone by portraying the writers as a bunch of picketing millionaires. What is the average salary of an AMPTP member? They don’t seem as quick to point that out. Another argument I have heard from the AMPTP is that producers risk a great deal of capital on new shows and take losses when they are unsuccessful. Is working as a television writer without risk? They face life without an income if their projects fold. Time between projects may be long, and residuals are something that keeps many of their heads above water in the voids between jobs. Compensation from new media and DVDs is something that they clearly deserve. The writers asked for a doubling of their paltry .3% of DVD profit, and even took this modest demand off the table in an effort to encourage a speedy resolution by removing a major point of contention.

    On the subject of new media, it’s clear that new media users are becoming a larger segment of your audience; consequently, a larger portion of your revenue stream. NBC.com is full of banner ads and before viewing show episodes or clips on the site, you must sit through advertisements. Obviously you are not placing these on the website without being compensated. Clearly, as was evidenced by your fallout with Apple’s iTunes, you are concerned with the profit margin you enjoy from paid downloads of your programming. You and I both know that new media will grow exponentially in the next few years as the technology used to create, distribute, view, store, and purchase it improves. The writers only seek to have language in their contract that guarantees them a fair portion of the profits that will go hand-in-hand with the inevitable growth of new media. The AMPTP states that six out of last year’s top ten most popular programs were unscripted, reality/game show-type productions. Just how popular are these shows in paid downloads, DVD sales, or streaming content on network websites? I suspect they don’t measure up to quality scripted programming. As of this moment, 90% of the top episode downloads and 100% of the top season downloads on iTunes are scripted programming. Who wants to watch “Deal or No Deal” or “Dancing With The Stars” multiple times on their iPod or DVD player? I wouldn’t wish that upon anyone.

    As I am sure you have surmised by now, I am an ardent and vocal supporter of the WGA in their dispute with AMPTP. Both The Office and 30 Rock feature writers who are also producers. In all cases that I’ve seen, these hyphenates have chosen the side of the WGA in this contract dispute. It also appears that the on-screen talent in the SAG union have expressed their support for the WGA in their interviews and on the picket lines. I feel that the right thing to do in this situation is clear, and if this dispute is not resolved in a timely manner, I will not lose any loyalty to the writers involved. I will, however, bear a deep grudge against the producers who have caused the work stoppage with their greed and inflexibility. So, if the writers I admire end up moving to another network once this crisis is over, I will follow them to wherever they are employed. In the meantime, while red-shirted picketers march and production is at a standstill, I will not be watching replacement shows, reruns, reality programming, or any other distractions which are broadcast while the writers are without a fair and just contract for the future of their profession. Please take into consideration that I am not alone in my beliefs and that a protracted rigidity by the AMPTP will be a major blemish on the producers and the networks and studios that employ them.

    Please do the right thing

    Sincerely,

  20. Dear Mr. Zucker,

    My name is Daniel Leissler and I am a big Office fan. I am not one to complain but I have been following the strike. I see what is going on and realize a big company like NBC is trying to make money and compete. That is business. I know, I work for Comcast Cable in West Florida. We compete for customers everyday. But my company takes care of me. I am sick, they pay me with time I earn from them. I sell a service, they pay me time and commission. I also give back. I work overtime when needed. I keep the customers happy by being pleasant and dealing with their issues in a timely manner. I put this analogy to your situation and it doesn’t add up. Your employees are working long days and getting paid for their time but where is there commission. I get commission on everything I sell company never cheats me on that. But you are not paying commission for your workers. If you put something on the internet or sell a DVD pay your workers. You are infringed on their rights as human beings. They work hard to create ideas and storylines for shows you should give them the incentive to better by paying them for it. It is a no brainer. I don’t watch reality shows, and I won’t. I know a lot of people in my place of business and I am not one to be mean but we as viewers will go on strike. After a while you won’t have a choice and you will be left wondering why I just didn’t work with my employees instead of work against them. Please for the sake of being human give your employees a break and give them their commission.

    Sincerely,
