    Assumption.

    Great ratings.

    Relatively cheap production cost.

    Very expensive cast.

    ...

    Even the licensing per episode from Millar World could half, if it's a story about new characters from the Jupiter Legacy's world, and not the actual Juptier's Legacy team.

    ...

    CBS had to pay DC comics 3 million dollars per episode, 66 million per season, to film the first season of Supergirl. The CW is owned jointly by CBS and Warner Brothers, who owns DC comics, so the CW did not have to pay the 3 million dollar fee per episode, and 5 years later, most episodes of Supergirl stink.

    ...

    I doubt any one would pay 3 million per episode to license Jupiter's legacy.

    It's Okay.

    It's a very dry drama.

    But only 8 episodes long, so its basically only as long as one Snyder flick.

    Did you see the new version of The Tick 3 years ago?



    It had a gay boat in it.

    But it turned out that the gay boat, was actually a gay plane who was afraid of heights.

    Whaaaat? Gay Boat, that's a plane. Is it an AI?

    Yes.

    Exactly.

    Alan Tudyk as the AI for a plane who's name is Dangerboat.

    Dangerboat is a minor character in the 2017 remake of the Tick. Scroll up for the trailer.

    A TV show.

    A streaming show.

    40 minute format times 20 episodes.

    2 seasons.

    Go find. :)

    It's really good. I think both tv versions of The Tick were good.

    Forgot to post this earlier in the week. Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist has been canceled, although the showrunner hasn't given up hopes for a revival elsewhere (evidently moving the series purely to Peacock didn't happen).

    whether Pennyworth gets 3rd season is up in the air at the moment with talks about moving it to HBO Max.

    https://deadline.com/2021/05/pennyworth-move-epix-hbo-max-dc-origin-series-1234748840/

    HBO Max seems to come up a lot as new network for saving shows but I'm wondering it could be counter productive as you then start limiting your audience. It's fine if they've already got it but I think there time as has come where people will start giving up on shows rather than pay for another streaming service just to get one series.

    The question: Do more people subscribe to Epix or to HBO Max?

    Since a lot of people get HBO already, and will therefore get HBO Max for free , I imagine more people will sign up for HBO Max.

    A completely different revenue stream.

    The Nielsons measure 40 thousand homes (hundred thousand people) then multiply the results by 3000, to figure out what 300,000,000 people are watching.

    is there a Nielson family that has cut the cord? The Box measuring zero views of anything from now to the end of time, because the family is watching Youtube and hulu?

    HBO Max has exact numbers for how many of their subscribers watched every show, and how much of it they watched/gave up, or if it took them multiple attempts to get through a 4 hours long Justice league movie. Or it tells them if it's a series that many people are watching more than once.

    Kids watching the same 4 episodes of Blues Clues over and over again.

    Keeping literal subscribers vs conjobing advertisers.

    Oh, there's another demographic.

    People who pay for HBO Max, but never use it.

    If people are paying for a service they never use, do you really have to try at all? Couldn't you just make a lot more money airing a test pattern and keep several thousand loyal nonviewers who forgot they subscribed and don't account their automatic payments so well? A smaller subscriber base, but zero over heads. It's basically what Trump has been doing. Ramping up donations and providing zero services in return because he is no longer the fucking government.

    Supposedly talks between Paramount+ and MGM for Clarice are at a stalemate, but the show can't just go back to CBS because their slate for next season is full.

    I liked the office politics and race war, it was the murder that was weak.
