Video – “Half-Share” The Show That LOGO TV Should Spend Some $$$’s To Pick Up.

LOGO-TV the home of, the vapid queens of The A List, the done to death drag queens of RuPauls Drag Race, and the 500th time reruns of Buffy the Vampire Slayer has no excuse for not heading over to the  the New York Television Festival, (September 19-24) and chacking out and picking up “Half-Share” , a gay comedy that is being shopped around by Jesse Archer, Sean Hanley and Michael Lyon,

“Half-Share” sort of like a cross between  Sex & The City  meets The Boys in the Band and deals with an eclectic bunch of gay men sharing a house one summer on Fire Island.  After a 14-year relationship ends Mac (Kevin Spidle) is convinced to join a summer share in the Pines. He thinks it’s going to be a reflective and relaxing vacation, but it turns out somewhat differently, as Mac’s eccentric housemates toss him headfirst into the deep end of Fire Island’s  social scene.

Half-Share also boasts a REAL cast of actors.  None of this Richen Lehmenkul Z-List shit.  The cast of Half-Share includes: Jesse Archer (Boy Culture,Violet Tendencies), Alec Mapa (Ugly Betty), Sam Pancake ( Legally Blonde 2), Jack Plotnick (Girls Will Be Girls), Kevyn Morrow (Broadway’s Five Guys Named Moe) and Joey Dudding (Big Gay Musical)

One of the major problems with LOGO-Tv has and is that its CHEAP.  The network is almost totally run by interns and every “original” show that it has is penny pinched to death and its content even 1 Girl 5 Gays is a Canadian talk show that premiered on 14 October 2009 on MTV (Canada) and they buy old LGBT themed played out reruns. (The big news this year was that LOGO  had acquired the non-exclusive, basic cable rights to Will & Grace for 2013.  WOW 2013!)

In reality LOGO TV  is owned by Viacom’s MTV Networks division and is hardly suffering for money.  Logo does have major advertisers but seems that they are  more interested in using its money to buy internet sites.   LOGO acquired three LGBT websites: 365gay.com (a site featuring news relevant to the LGBT community), AfterEllen.com (a site featuring news and commentary on bisexual and lesbian women in media and entertainment), and AfterElton.com (a site featuring news and commentary on bisexual and gay men in media and entertainment). In 2007, Logo acquired Downelink.com (a social networking site primarily targeted to LGBT people of color) for a reported $4.8 million instead of pumping some money into its programming

Cmon LOGO how about popping a few bucks and picking up “Half-Share” so there is  actually something worth while watching on your channel.  You do realize that you are a Premium Cable Tier after all. 

Or are you saving up to buy reruns of “Dante’s Cove”?  *shiver*
