It’s been quite enlightening to be out here in Hollywood this time around, in the epicenter of where the bulk of the movies and tv shows get made, or at the very least get decided upon, and to see why they choose to produce what they produce.

From what I can tell, the suits, meaning the folks that fund the artists, don’t really care what they produce, they simply care whether it sells or not, show biz is a business after all, and therefore they base their creative decisions entirely upon you, the viewing audience. Maybe this sounds obvious, or maybe you’ve never really thought about it that way before, but I can tell you now as an eye witness that the powers that be are spending inordinate amounts of dollars and time analyzing and assessing what it is that you like and what you will watch.

Consider that you as a viewer have been having a conversation with Hollywood whether you knew it or not and that your ratings are your vote. In their mind, anything that gets big ratings is a clear indication of what the viewers want and therefore they are going to put all their efforts into making more of that to give to said viewers.

Based on the current ratings, Hollywood thinks you want more Honey Boo Boo, more Jersey Shore, more Housewives, more Superhero remakes, and more horror films and I just have to ask out of my own curiosity, is this true? Is this what you like? What types of TV Show and films do you want to see more of?

  1. I dont want to see, jesery shore, honey boo, or another desparate housewife! LoL

  2. My favorite shows on television are “The Good Wife”, “Smash” and “Downton Abbey”. My favorite film of late is “Argo”.

  3. Scary, huh? I have never seen any of those shows. Not one reality show…..

  4. Ah – so much to say to a Hollywood Suit – so little space on a blog; but the short story from me is please no more drama (the angered screaming/fighting/demeaning kind). I’ve never seen the shows you mentioned, but I do know people watch them. I guess I can sum up my choices with Live – Laugh – Love. Live – shows that leave people wanted to live a better life after watching; Laugh – comedies that make people forget their current woes; Love – those soul touching programs that send chills (that sweet vibration) to the audience…cuz afterall, that’s what makes the world go round. : )

  5. I must admit that Honey Boo Boo is a train wreck I can’t turn away from. I’m also an avid fan of Ammerican Horror Story and Walking Dead.

  6. I HATE Honey Boo Boo! I HATE Jersey Shore, I HATE Desparate Housewives..these shows show how disgusting America is with their obsession on characters like these. I LOVE Horror movies, I LOVE super heros, and I’m with Debra, I’m obsessed with The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Breaking Bad, Dexter, and the list goes on and on..its very sad that pure white trash and desparate middle aged women are the hits the rule the TV..but in the meantime, I will fantasize about preparing for the Zombie Apocolypse! Thanks for the article Holly!
