CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #331

Random Things I've Learned in TV

Never ask a question when you know the answer is going to be a lie.

Silence is always bad news.

Strong Nielson ratings guarantee employment, not self-esteem.

Actors can smoke cigarettes because they're immune to carcinogens.

It's safe to talk openly and honestly with people because they're not really listening.

The two major groups in TV show biz are, naturally enough, show people and biz people. Telling them apart is simple. No matter how old they are, 'show' people (usually creative types like writers, actors, directors and musicians) dress like teenagers. Again, regardless of age, 'biz' people (agents, managers, lawyers, company executives) dress like adults. When 'biz' people start dressing like 'show' people it means they've made too much money off the backs of the aforementioned 'show' people. When 'show' people (usually directors) start dressing like 'biz' people, it means they're insecure about their creative involvement and need a hug.
