Jimmy Fallon IS going to help his staff get through the writers’ strike.
Employees at the “Tonight Show” and Seth Meyers’ “Late Show” will be paid for the next two weeks by NBC, and then Jimmy and Seth will personally pay their teams for a third week.
Staff will also have guaranteed health insurance through September.
Do YOU have an opinion on the strike? According to a new poll, 58% of Americans either Somewhat Support or Strongly Support the writers, while only 15% Somewhat Oppose or Strongly Oppose them.
27% aren’t sure. Or, more accurately, their lives probably aren’t ruled by TV.
(Here’s an interesting thought: The 2007 writers’ strike helped boost the popularity of reality TV. Will the current strike result in A.I. being used to create more content for less money?)
