Well . . .

By: Dr. Spock



. . . I'm no expert either but I know a few things about TV shows and residual payments. 

Telly's estate gets a small residual payment when the TV episode was shown yesterday.  Ratiings and viewership don't change that amount.

So, me watching Savalas hunt down some murderer yesterday added nothing to his estate.  He got his payment just because the TV channel showed Kojak.  Ratings were irrelevant.

But more importantly, me watching Kojak yesterday had absolutely nothing to do with me endorsing Telly Savalas' politics, whatever they were.  I just wanted to watch a good show and see him say "Who loves ya baby?"
