THE PLANK DECEMBER 2, 2009

News Flash: Blockbusters Are Popular!

Does this NYT headline/piece strike anyone else as ridiculous?

"On Broadway, Shows With Biggest Names Get Fullest Houses"

The article is about how star-studded, hit shows like "Wicked" and "The Lion King" are in high demand this holiday season, while lesser-known, lower-wattage entities are faring worse.

Wow. Who would have ever imagined that hit shows would be more popular than non hit shows?

This is precisely the sort of insight for which I turn to the paper of record.
