TV money: mainstream media is making a big deal that Donald Trump made $30 million off "The Apprentice" in 2005. That may be. To put that in perspective, the top three actors in "The Big Bang Theory" are each earning $1 million/episode, 24 episodes/season. Mainstream media seem surprised that so much money can be made off television. Nominees for the 2017 Geico Rock Award? By the way, by the close of season nine (2016), there will have been 211 episodes. I believe "Big Bang Theory" is in its 10th season.

By the way, now Donna Brazile blames this on the "Russians." This is starting to become the biggest joke in town, blaming everything on the "Russians."
