So I tweeted today after the show concerning commercials and The Jason Ellis Show, and a possible new dedicated channel that is yet to be officially announced. This snowballed into a conversation with others that I felt may have gotten a little misconstrued, due to the 140 character limit on Twitter. It’s hard to convey exact emotions sometimes when you’re so limited. So I thought I would explain myself further here, and clarify my statements. Call it one of the perks of running and writing on No You Are.
This led to some other’s tweeting about commercials, which I had responded to a few of those tweets. Basically, my stance is this: Does TJES and it’s cast deserve more recognition and money? Absolutely. Do I want Ellis, Tully, Josh, Will, Cullen, The Jingleberries, and whoever else is part of their team, to succeed? Of course I do. Do I understand that TJES was and has been severely under budgeted? Yes. So why my concerns about “too many commercials”? Simple. Kind of. The short of it is that I don’t see music breaks the same as commercials. I don’t think anyone can doubt my love for the show. That same love is why I’d prefer to have 6 breaks in 4 hours, over 18 breaks in 4 hours. (Those are made-up numbers, I have no idea what the numbers would be.) I don’t want the show that I love to be totally different. But I think Ellis knows what his audience expects and I don’t think he’ll let his show get decimated. That is my hope, and that is all I wanted to say. Dude, is that gay? DING.
