There is news that the cast of the Simpsons are on strike due to low salaries. They demand a raise from just $30,000 an episode. They will not do any more episodes until FOX raises their salaries. However, history has shown that when the cast of a FOX show demands raises, the show gets cancelled. Think Married With Children.
Actually the simpsons cast have asked for more money in 98 I belive and they got what they wanted.
+ how can anyone complain about getting 3m a year?
well Harry Shearer said this in 98
"It's tough to equate any of the money talk in TV with the real world, but it's equally tough to read Fox execs bragging about the astronomical profitability of the show with the greedy stance they've taken toward the cast."
