A certain reality TV family is in contract negotiations for a four year renewal to their contracts (with options each year). You guys think of this show as sort of herpes that never goes away. But I think it is kind of cute but I don’t always recap it. I hate half hour shows. Mommy dearest makes six figures per episode plus a small executive producer check for a half hour show! The network loves the show because it is so cheap to make. The problem is that the cute little kids are all growing up and becoming a bit obnoxious and not that cute anymore.
The attorney repping the family is the best in the business. The negotiations are expected to continue for a few weeks. It is a complete renegotiation. No one in the family has an actual job, so they are desperate to keep the show on the air for as long as possible.
Possible storylines include, reconciling with her parents, finally telling the truth about plastic surgery and bringing in new friends to spice the show up. Basically, she needs to make it worth the six figures per episode for a half hour show. The show itself is considered a “reality comedy” and showrunners don’t think the show is funny at all. But I do! It’s a cute half an hour. And I’m here for it.
