Last Call with Carson Daly
c/o NBC Studios (stage 9)
3000 W Alameda Ave
With the impending writers strike, I’m posting an open letter to offer my services as an almost-professional comedic writer in your time of need.
Luckily, I’ve seen your show and I know that you’re not losing much if the writers strike on Monday. Double lucky, I know I can maintain the average comedic level of your show. Triple lucky, I know the viewers don’t expect much and nothing else will be new on TV.
The best part for you is that I’m willing to work for free because I need to prove myself before Kimmel will hire me.
ps. Look for the internet to gain a lot of popularity if this writers strike lasts for more than a few days. Why?
- Because TV ratings will go down even further (and this time the people may not come back – the fall lineup is terrible)
- Because all the new content generation will be done on the web for a while
- Because some enterprising young comedian will take the place of the reruns of all the late night shows with their own daily comedy show (is funnyordie.com impacted by the writers strike?)
- Because it provides an opportunity for video, podcasts, and other produced compilations from online companies to make a bigger splash and fill the pipeline for TV shows that still decide to report business and entertainment news.
