Negotiating Liars

money discussionSOLVED! (partially)

[Blind Gossip] When it comes to negotiating television contracts with the talent, you should heed the words of Dr. Gregory House: Everybody lies!

Want to know who is lying in several sets of negotiations? It’s everybody! Let’s give you a little insiders peek at what is really going on. You’ll se that it’s not all about the money…

Host of a morning show. Old employer: We’re glad he’s gone! Everyone hated him and he’s not that good at his job!

Liars! If you wanted him gone, you wouldn’t have offered to double his salary to stay. The negative stuff that you say as he’s walking out the door is just sour grapes.

Same host. New employer: He is not being groomed to take over someone else’s slot.

Liars! Your current host is slipping and you couldn’t give him the boot because you didn’t have a viable replacement. Snagging the new host – and putting him in a position to make a lateral move in the next couple of years – is the perfect solution. Well done.

Host of an entertainment show. Current employer: She is leaving to pursue other opportunities. Everyone here loves her and will miss her.

Liars! She is leaving because everyone at the show hates her. The guests didn’t like her either. You were just biding your time until her current contract ran out. You’re glad she’s gone.

Actress on a national commercial. Current employer: We are thrilled to continue with her as our company spokesperson.

Liars! You are phasing her out due to demands to double her salary coupled with waning consumer interest in her somewhat weird character.

Actress on a youth-oriented series. Current employer: She is not important or valuable enough to deserve a substantial raise, and we are right to pay her only a fraction of what her costar makes.

Liars! You are happily exploiting the fact that she is physically and emotionally exhausted after a very long season. You are also privately telling her that she deserves to be penalized for some unfavorable publicity in the past year that embarrassed your network. However, since that publicity did not affect the show’s ratings, your argument is pretty weak. Also, paying equal costars on a show vastly different amounts breeds resentment and affects performances and promotion. Oh, and don’t think you can lure her back into negotiating with you in person. She is holed up far away in a secret location. Smart move on her part. You’ll have to deal with her people.

Remember, it’s not personal. It’s business! It’s not personal. It’s business!

jennette mccurdy 1SOLVED! (partially)

Actress on a youth-oriented series: Jennette McCurdy from Sam & Cat

In case you don’t already know, Sam & Cat was an extremely popular show on the youth-focused Nickelodeon channel. It starred Jennette McCurdy and Arianna Grande, and was a spin-off/combination of Nickelodeon’s iCarly and Victorious, which had each starred one of the girls.

Sam & Cat was a huge hit.

Sam & Cat just got cancelled.

If you think that it makes no sense to cancel an extremely popular show… you’re right! This is a case of another young actress getting screwed over by producers (see link below for another story).

The first season of Sam & Cat was originally contracted for 20 episodes… but it was doing so well that Nickelodeon doubled the order to 40 episodes. That is a huge number of episodes for one season of a scripted show!

So when it was time to negotiate for the second season, it was reasonable to expect that both actresses would see big – and comparable – bumps in pay. However, the producers played dirty, threatening McCurdy with publicly shaming her for some personal issues (risque photos that were released) so that they could pay her half of what they paid Grande. As we told you before about the producers:

You are happily exploiting the fact that she [McCurdy] is physically and emotionally exhausted after a very long season. You are also privately telling her that she deserves to be penalized for some unfavorable publicity in the past year that embarrassed your network. However, since that publicity did not affect the show’s ratings, your argument is pretty weak. Also, paying equal costars on a show vastly different amounts breeds resentment and affects performances and promotion.

After the negotiations fell apart, of course Nickelodeon blamed McCurdy, and wanted every media outlet to lead you to believe it was McCurdy’s fault that the series wasn’t going forward. For example, the Daily News wrote today that:

Grande confirmed on July 14 that their show, a spin-off combination from Nickelodeon’s “iCarly” and “Victorious,” had indeed been axed from the network after a whopping 40-episode first season.

The news came after rumors of a salary dispute involving the actresses, and not long after racy photos of McCurdy, 22, leaked online in March.

The truth is that McCurdy refused to accept unequal pay, and she refused to let producers browbeat her with her own mistakes. Now you know that McCurdy’s behavior did not cause the demise of Sam & Cat. The producer’s greed and nastiness did.

Congratulations to Mystic for being the first to guess this part of the blind item correctly!

    Oh, please, not Flo! I like her and their commercials. I have Progressive and Flo is what I like best about the insurance ;)

    Jeanette McCurdy. I stopped following her years ago when I realized she was no better than all the other too-rich-too-young-no-supervision crowd. But hey, equal pay for equal work no matter what. Fight for it; don’t let them take advantage of you while they are making millions off of you.

    Josh Elliott…GMA and now NBC sports

    don’t watch it but guessing the entertainment show is Bethanny

    National Commercial (usually fast forward on my dvd)… going to guess its Penny from big bang, either the car commercial where she’ the genie or priceline

    the youth show is on Nick… Sam & Cat, don’t know her name but she plays Sam (was on iCarly, which my daughter watched)… frankly she’s ok, Ariana is much better

    Progressive has been using less Flo in their commercials recently.

    Also, reports are not that Sam and Kat might be canceled over Jenette wanting more pay because Ariana makes way more. The “bad publicity” could be Jenette’s racy selfies.
