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?
