CBS wants the UFC to scab for them

I dunno if it’s comforting or not to see that it’s not just MMA fighters and promoters fighting about money and respect. There’s also some kind of pesky dispute between Hollywood producers and writers about pay as well. Speaking as someone who doesn’t make a fifth of what any of these guys make, I’d like to stand up now and say “I hope all of you rich fucks die from ass cancer. Terrible, painful ass cancer.”

But hey, it’s not all reruns and ass cancer … there might be a silver lining to this story. CBS (yep, the smelly old people’s station) is apparently in talks with the UFC to produce some shows to fill in time which would otherwise be used to show reruns of CSI, CSI:Miami, NCIS, and CSI:NY.

Lets not get our hopes up too high though. There’s 1001 ways this deal could fall through and god knows Dana White probably thinks he’s God now that CBS gave him a ring. Questions about new content or old content, live events or event highlights, what happens if the strike ends before UFC stuff is shown abound. Things are way too up in the air right now to assume anything.

But one thing is for sure: If I have to give up on new episodes of House and Grey’s Anatomy so the UFC can hit network TV, then I’m okay with that. So on that note, I hope neither side in this while writer’s strike gives in, forever and ever, amen.

    Screw UFC on CBS, let them sign the Orange Robot, now that would be intense!

  • matt (tapout name shitstain) says:

    This deal will fall just like the hbo deal because the ufc refuses to get rid of the ghey gladiator and other amatuerish production they put on.

  • Thomas says:

    I would hate the UFC forever if they replaced House.

  • kentyman says:

    House should have a “who the fuck stole a tennis ball sized whole from Kevin Randleman” episode.

  • Umm… House is on Fox ya morons. =\

  • Shaun says:

    I’m not okay with that, HOUSE PWNS YA FACE.

    How is profitable?

    “How is profitable?”

    He gets $5.00 every time he posts about Xyience, $1.50 for posts containing references to ass or cancer and a bonus for putting them together. Theres also $7.00 every time he slides in a Kevin Iole insult . However theres also a $12.00 fine each time he professes his man love for Evan Tanner, so most weeks he barely breaks even. Theres also a behind the scenes payday for post of the night.

    Maybe that meat-head wearing the ‘Sean Sherk’ Affliction shirt at the RIO I talked to on Holloween WAS right, and Henderson is fighting A. Silva at 79!

    If it turns out to be true, everyone heard it here first, about a week and half ago.

    #8 Considering that Evan Tanner supposeably just inked a 4 fight deal with the UFC, Fightlinker is going to be in debt soon.

    If this strike affects Lost I’m going to lose my shit for real.
