Three Things

THERE’S NO “J” In RATINGS
Jeff Gaspin, chairman of NBC Universal Entertainment, told the NY Times earlier this month that the network would consider Jay Leno a success with just a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49. Yes, that sounds low —but the program is so cheap to produce it can make loads of money with the same ratings that would get another show cancelled. NBC affiliates must be thrilled. They were promised that Jay would help revitalize NBC’s anemic schedule. If a 1.5 is revitalization, I’m Warren Littlefield.

MIND SHIFT
They’re working on the movie “The Other Guys” in the streets of Albany outside my office this week. I’ve heard several people say they’re “taping” scenes. This is funny because when I worked in TV folks would always refer to what we were doing as “filming.” No, we’d smugly think to ourselves, “We’re taping.” Now people just assume everything is tape —and we may be coming to a day when film is as quaintly passé as vinyl.

Came home from work and found one of the dogs eating a loaf of bread. What?! It appears that the kitten knocked the bread off the kitchen counter and the dog went to town. Freihofer’s Double Fiber Wheat in case you’re interested.
