It's a moot point, im sure somewhere in her contract there would be a clause that she could only do 'approved' advertising.

Most of you skipped over the sheer marketing brilliance from Dish. By forcing CBS to pull the tweet (which they would have had a fairly good idea that it was going to happen) it's brought way more attention to the product than the tweet ever would have.

Between that and the CNET thing the best marketing Dish have had is from CBS. Somewhat ironic.

Not really, Blue. It's not like she or we don't have a choice. I've walked from jobs and told my employers to go fuck themselves for a lot less. Not like she wouldn't find work in a heartbeat anywhere else, or they'd even cancel the Big Bang. She should have told them to 'Suck it Trebek!'


So being strong armed by your employer for having an opinion and the actor/actress capitulating is the actor/actress' fault and not corporate bullshit? really?

She's a public figure. What she does in public can be dictated by her contract. Kind of standard. You're willing to take $7 million representing your employer publicly? You'd better understand that doesn't turn on and off when the camera is rolling. Ask Charlie Sheen or Lindsay Lohan.

Also, this wasn't her personal opinion, this was an ad. Dish paid her to do this. Odds are CBS also has control over what work she can accept otherwise. I mean, hell, I can't consult for a competitor to my company during the nights.

It's a murky two way street at best, in reality it's pure corporate megalomanical BS at it's best. Thank god i find this show repulsive in it's portrayal of pseudo nerd culture, and it's watered down IT crowd format for an audience of people who want to feel smart and sciency without all that pesky reading, or else i'd have something else to boycott. This is the same stupid american sitcom as the rest of the trash on tv with a theme that some study group found nerdy enough but not so nerdy it alienates stupid people.

I've known a few struggling actors. The entertainment industry doesn't work that way. She's middle age by TV standards. When BBT goes off the air, she might never see another major TV role again. She's also making over $7 mill a year. That's a lot of incentive to toe the line.

Stop and think for a second about people that go from nothing to starring on hit TV shows and then to lengthy careers.

Very, very manage that. Exceedingly few. And rarely women. So yeah, I'd be shocked if we hear from any of the BBT stars 5 years from now. I could be wrong, I've never seen the show (thank god, the few clips I've seen are probably the worst television I've been subjected to since, like, Viper), so maybe there is some crossover talent there, but yeah, this is probably the only real chance these people have.
