Ah, The Price To Film In New York

More and more television series are migrating east to film their New York based shows to, well, New York.

There's 30 Rock, Special Victims Unit, Life on Mars, Gossip Girl, Lipstick Jungle, Ugly Betty is a new transplant, Fringe just started this past season, and of course, Sex and the City was filmed in New York.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the average cost to shoot just one episode in NYC is 3 million dollars. Yowza! 3 million dollars. That's a shit load of money. Who's floatin' all this dough?

Sure, the economy is in bad shape, but our need for network programming is so much in demand. Yes, spend 3 million dollars so we can stare @ Joshua Jackson, Brooke Shields, Tina Fey, Christopher Meloni, & Ed Westwick.
Ah, who am I kidding? Television is a great love.

Hey, didn't Don Johnson film his series, which I can't name @ this moment, in San Fran? With Cheech!
