Fall Lineup – Network Executive Freaks continue to diss fans: NBC disses Medium, CBS picks it up…

WTH is wrong with these network executives?? Why are they dissing fans? Now this loon at NBC calls a highly successful show, the only NBC show I watch in fact, Medium which I DVR, an ageing franchise without a single fan letter”?? WTH?! I mean look at TSCC we wrote thousands of letters and Reilly kicked us in the teeth too..

At least CBS which produces Medium defended it, I would LOVE to see WB and Halcyon puulllleeeeeze pick up TSCC and defend the honor of our show and fans like this….

SciFiWire:

..After a sniping match between NBC and CBS executives about Medium, CBS added the Patricia Arquette supernatural drama to its Friday nights, following Ghost Whisperer, in the upfront announcement of its fall schedule on Wednesday in New York.

As expected, CBS canceled the sci-fi series Eleventh Hour.

The buzz had been that CBS would pick up Medium, which is produced by CBS TV Studios, if NBC decided to cancel it, which it did on Tuesday.

NBC co-chairman Ben Silverman had said Medium was “an aging franchise, without a single fan letter, with no passion” after the show’s cancellation.

CBS TV Studios shot back in a statement: “NBC’s cancellation of Medium is inexplicable to us. The ratings don’t lie: Medium outperforms many of NBC’s renewed shows.”

Since it’s unlikely Silverman would diss the show that had served them well for no reason, his statement likely reflected the knowledge that CBS would pick up the show…

Update: The GOP Plan: Rep. Paul Ryan: House GOP Health Care Plan: Patients’ Choice Act

*

Update:  RCP The GOP Plan presented by Coburn, Burr, Ryan and Nunes:

Frankly I really like it and I am damned picky about health care reform:, Think what an amazing day it is when the GOP is proposing health care reform that incorporates the basic tenets to ensure consistent coverage with automatic enrollment and access to Congress’ plan as well as bypassing the dreaded McCarran Ferguson Act which prevents interstate federal regulation, allowing interstate policy purchases woohoo competition baby

and they eliminate the dreaded pre ex limitations. We have won a major battle to get coverage expanded by virtue of this proposal itself and frankly in our current financial situation this plan covers the immediate needs and does not cost us trillions of dollars we simply do not have….and anyone who thinks Dems in Congress and TOTUS will put thrpugh a public option are smokin rope, they will kill it; trading it away for nothing at the last minute, and say they tried!! boohoo,  leaving us with the private carriers getting a bunch of new enrollees and premiums and a govt panel to run it all like an HMO-

Remember the stories on 20/20 the HORROR of patients in HMOs denied an MRI and dying, denied EXPERIMENTAL NON FDA APPROVED treatments and people were outraged, now our own govt is preparing to act as an HMO and deny us coverage,

go Google that new Colonoscopy Scan they have that Medicare just denied coverage for…now that procedure will not be done in volume, and progress will not happen, the price will not drop, the technology will not be pursued, the cost containment method of funding health care expansion as proposed by Team TOTUS will kill genetic single person cure developments etc..

Highlights of the GOP Legislation – Patients’ Choice Act (if you like it Call your Congress Critters):

  • We have introduced a comprehensive health care reform bill, the Patients’ Choice Act that, we believe, will bring us far closer to the goal of universal coverage than the Obama plan. Our bill, in specific legislative language, does the following:
  1. we would shift health care tax benefits to individuals and families in the form of a “Medi-Choice” tax rebate worth about $2,200 for individuals and $5,700 for families. Under our plan, if you like the health care you have, you can keep it – but you’ll have more money in your pocket because you will still receive a tax rebate.
  2. The Patients’ Choice Act lowers health care costs and insurance premiums by more sensibly caring for those with chronic illnesses and those deemed “uninsurable.”
  3. In addition to innovative prevention initiatives, our plan utilizes risk adjustment mechanisms and other options at the State level – such as reinsurance and risk pools – to extend coverage to those with chronic medical conditions.
  4. we recognize that markets can’t solve all problems. That’s why our bill prevents cherry picking – when insurance companies choose to cover only healthy patients – by equalizing risk across insurance companies and reversing the perverse incentives that leave those most vulnerable with the fewest options.
  5. Our bill creates voluntary state-based solutions – state health exchanges – that will offer health insurance benefits using the same standard used for Members of Congress. Every American would have guaranteed access to coverage and care under this plan, regardless of patient age or health history.
  6. And to ensure that states get to design the solutions their patients need, states would have the freedom to form voluntary pooling arrangements with other state exchanges to diversify risk pools, ease administrative burdens and cover costs for insurance.
  7. We also provide simple new opportunities for automatic enrollment to help people who need coverage
  8. We remove the stigma from Medicaid recipients and give them the ability to purchase the health coverage and care they need from any provider. We preserve Medicaid for the blind, aged, and disabled and we eliminate widespread fraud in the programs. We do all this and still save states and the federal government about $1.3 trillion over the next 10 years.

COSTS excerpt:  our bill accomplishes these goals without spending any new federal money, or raising taxes. If this sounds too good to be true, we would note that the problem in health care is not that we don’t spend enough, but that Americans aren’t getting enough value for their dollars. On a per capita basis, America spends nearly twice what other industrialized nations spend on health care yet we are hardly twice as healthy.

Your Geek News:Preview: Does McG spell Salvation for Terminator Franchise? Exclusive Film Clips..(some small spoilers)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

From the fabulous YourGeekNews:

After an atrocious T3, it looked like the Terminator film series was suffering from classic franchise fatigue (seriously, THREE movies about the same exact plot?). But with the arrival of McG in the director’s chair, we’ve got a movie about the coolest part of the Terminator universe: the dystopian future that all these wacky killing machines are from. Not to be confused with three hot babes who work for a talking speaker.

With a killer film look, some great actors, and a NEW idea for once, Terminator looks like it’s relevant again, and ready to rock this summer’s blockbuster season… we’ve got a sweet preview with TONNES of scenes from the film and interviews with the cast and crew!
