    As long as the CBS honchos also go without a raise, and forgo a bonus then it is fair. Kevin and Nicole both nail it.

  • Lori

    CBS can save even more money by canceling some of those unfunny sitcoms they have. They can start by cancelling HIMYM first!

  • Karen

    Why not canning CSI Miami? CBS would save a lot of money by cheasing to produce a show that is nothing but a joke. Everyone on that show is way overpaid.

    LMAO someone pleeeeease bring a videocamera or audio recorder in when you ask David Caruso to take a pay freeze. I think the only question is which Miami supporting character is going to be cut.

    Lori – if you do not think HIMYM is funny, you must have no sense of humor. No sense of humor = terrible in bed. Terrible in bed = your comment is worthless. Now go eat some ice cream.

    CBS Monday lineup: The Big Bang: Terrific show. HIMYM: Awful. 2 1/2 Men: Often funny but it should be on at 10:00 pm or later. Not appropriate for children under the age of 30. Worst Week: the worst show. Why do the white male heads of family always have to be portrayed as idiots. CSI Miami: Caruso is totally irritating. Get rid of every male who’s been on this show for 3 years or longer. The two other CSIs: CSI (Las Vegas): It’s getting old but 3 of the long time cast are gone. Now get rid of Helgenberger. She walks around like her s..t doesn’t stink. She’s also totally irritating. CSI New York: Don’t change a thing. With NCIS, probably the best two shows on CBS.

    Hey, Do you want me to trash you comment.
    Are you good or terrible in bed? Ask the boy next to you. Only queers like HIMYM.
    Does the boy need a tweezers when looking for your c…?

    Jan – LMAO don’t be mad because you’re terrible in bed too. If it’s any consolation your husband is probably cheating on you so he is satisfied. :) Now you go eat some more ice cream too! What? It’s already gone? lol, ok, open the Ding Dongs. :)

    Hey, DYWMTTYC,
    My comment about the tweezers really hit home didn’t it. Like the Queer community always espouses: “We were born that way”. That’s the common bond. You’re all sexually diminutive. If your boy friend is having a hard time, go to a watchsmith, they have even smaller tweezers.

    FINALLY! Hollywood and producers have joined the rest of the working-class. yeah, times are tough. and these ‘stars’ making a gazillion dollars a week plus getting their meals, clothing given to them….c’mon. so they’ll have to drink regular bottled water instead of imported. they need to remember it’s the fans and the viewers who help give them all the benefits. if we don’t support and/or watch their shows, buy their music, go to their movies then producers aren’t going to hire AND pay for someone who isn’t bringing in the people. and whatever happened to a full season being more than just 22-24 episodes? didn’t they used to make like 30+ back in the day. with the salaries being paid out for these ‘stars’ shouldn’t they be (literally) working for the money.

    Pelon. Good point. My husband bought me the first 3 seasons of Have Gun – Will Travel for Christmas. Each season consists of 39 episodes. Today, you’re lucky if your favorite program has 20 episodes. He got me the DVDs because he owns some property that was featured in one of the episodes. Unfortunately, it must be in the last 3 seasons which aren’t available on DVD. The amazing thing is I started watching them and was surprised how well written the story lines were. They must have had some fantastic programs in them there days. I watched all 117 episodes in 3 weeks. They became addictive.

    And while they ask the cast of NCIS to not accept raises, they’re hiring name stars for the spinoff. Makes me sick!

    CBS is not hurting for money but National Amusements owner Sumner Redstone is. He is trying to refinance a loan for National Amusements. He refuses to sell anymore viacom or CBS stock. His other companies have already made cuts, gues it is CBS’s turn now.l

  • Sue

    Well I love NCIS and the interaction between the characters is what makes it special to me. Why not just freeze salaries temporarily for everyone so that they are all treated fairly. No one may “win” at this point, but no one has to “lose” either.
