"SITUATION: COMEDY" AND THE TED DANSON FACTOR
So I've been thinking a bit on Bravo TV's "Situation: Comedy" reality show/contest. Specifically, the payoff for getting to the last stage:

- $25,000 cash
- A year's exclusive representation with Creative Artists Agency
- A 15-minute film presentation of your skit on Bravo (really not a prize per se, but it is exposure, even if you come in second place)

All very nice. But does it compare to what NBC (which owns Bravo) gave to Ted Danson back in the day? I think not! I think I'll pull a George Costanza and hold out for less money.
