Gods, I definitely agree with you on that! "Reality" my arse! If they call these bloody moronic shows actual reality, then I really hate to see what they'd consider fantasy! :loco

"Though large gaps remain between SAG and the majors, the two sides have made enough headway toward a feature-primetime deal to extend bargaining an extra week until May 2.

Wednesday's joint SAG-AMPTP announcement -- the first sign of any progress from eight days of contract talks -- came a few minutes after AFTRA disclosed it had agreed to postpone next week's start of its own primetime negotiations until May 5. AFTRA's move came in response to a request from the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers.

The congloms' decision to seek another week of talks with the Screen Actors Guild should serve to cool the town's fears of a SAG strike this summer. But it's obviously not all hearts and flowers at the bargaining table, with the majors stressing they're nowhere near a deal and need another week to reach that goal."

I don't speak Varietian, but that sounds fairly positive, no?
