I try to just communicate what I want done as clearly and simply as possible.
I was raised not to be rude, but I also try to get the best work out of people.
I think most people don't react well to being screamed at. It's counterproductive.
The ad revenues still go up because nothing dependably delivers the eyeballs that successful series do.
Everybody knows things are not the same. The people running the TV end of a major vertically integrated company know how much money a successful show can make.
