However, it’s important to stay ahead of the curve, and it’s important to fight for shareholders  maximizing stock value is of utmost importance.

That’s why I argue that Moonves and Bewkes should have considered shutting down “The Big Bang Theory”, a television program that runs on CBS television and is produced by Warner Bros. TV. Recently, there was a contract-negotiations problem holding up production. It was over money (of course). According to The Hollywood Reporter, the main stars wanted an increase from $350,000 per episode to $1 million per episode, a number that included backend participation. The situation was resolved, and the big stars of “Big Bang” as well as some of the lesser players, essentially got what they demanded.”
