Cher above sweeps

Post by lovinlife101 » Sat Sep 08, 2018 8:50 am

Since time began, TV reporters have been complaining about not getting any days off during sweeps. Heck, some with frosted tips try to make you feel like they sacrifice a lot putting work before their spouses (true story).

But this one takes the cake.

It’s one thing to complain about being required to work sweeps. It’s another to put it on social media and tell others to speak to your boss about why you should be allowed a day off during sweeps to see a Cher concert.

It would be funny if it weren’t true.

Might be interesting if we knew specifically what & who you are talking about.

It could only be one person... David "Fan Boy" Custer. It's more of his usual "look at me" attitude. It says a lot that he places more importance on a concert (that he's been too dozens of times) than the rest of his crew. The rest of us have to work sweeps as required by management. He only wants to play a journalist when it suits him. Working sweeps is something we all signed up for when we got into the business. So why should Custer get special treatment that the rest of us don't get?

That being said, watch that David will work on management including going all the way up to the GM to get the day off. So expect WNEM be number one in ratings for the ever important Cher demo. Yippee

He’s not the only fanboy.

If Howard Stern were in town, Jason Fielder would find a way to get a cold really quickly.

OK...it's Custer. Not a fan for numerous reasons. I think he is clueless as to what a real journalist is. Those mind numbing pro-mo's where he and Boyd kept patting each other on the back with childish reasons, and heaping praise on each other, was enough to make me puke.

But, I am sure the TV5 Management will keep these two bozo's around.

I don’t get it.

I thought the era of divas was over. What happened?

You can’t tell me there aren’t people out there that would love to be a television news anchor and work while Cher is in town.

There are people who would love to anchor... they just don't want to move their family across the country to work in Saginaw for minimum wage. #thetv5way

Just the idea of a male wanting to see Cher sing "SOS", says allot about him. Did I hear someone say "Gurlfiend?"

Seriously, there are not that many faggy straight people out there. Maybe 1"fag hag" in the bunch. How many heteros really wanna see her, when the old stuff is dead. She is trying to promote her Abba remake album. She's also doing what Wynona Judd did promote to gay audiences.

Can you imagine the kind words on the farewell cake if he got out of the business?

It would say, “To the person who would rather see Cher than work.”

Here is what was posted. This is absurd, but Meredith allows him to get away with it.

Here’s my dilemma...here we go again! How do I start a petition? You all are blowing up my social media letting me know that “Aunt Cher” is coming to town on tour and I am beyond excited. However...BIG However...my bosses don’t allow us to have days off in February or May because it’s “Sweeps” which is important for TV ratings. The two nights she’s coming to Michigan are in Sweeps! How do I convey to them that to me this is a H*** life event...like my 38-year-old bar mitzvah...my adult sweet sixteen (X2 + 8 - 2 + 0)... I was gonna say my gay marriage but that’s legal for now...??? HELP!!! This isn’t just some dude wanting a night off for some concert. This is my Cher!!! I would be devastated...you would be devastated...if I wasn’t there. My viewers want this!! Lol

I think he's always been "out," I don't recall any actual announcement.

What does coming out have to do with anything here? I support LGBTQ+ 100%. That has nothing to do with this post.

He should just call up his “aunt” and have her change the dates of her concerts. It’s really that easy.

This is the dumbest conversation ever. He has never been "in!" He's been openly gay since before joining TV5, not that it's any of our business.
