I was running Ring of Honor -- had taken them from Cult (60%) to National (13%). I had just opened a training camp and signed some talent and staff accordingly. I had two tv shows, and got an offer for a third. Three a week is TOO many, in my opinion, and I currently had UPN with 13 weeks left, and USA with 7 weeks left. The offer was for TNN for 55 weeks. So I wait a week, till I've got 6 weeks left on USA, and see how renegotiation goes. They offer another 12 weeks. Checking that TNN has lower morality and higher potential ratings than UPN, I decide to move the UPN show to TNN. But of course, you can't just drop show contracts mid-stream. So I get to the UPN show, and I click the "Cancel the Show" button...
AND I GET FIRED!!! END THE GAME!!!! ALL CUZ I CANCELED 1 (ONE) SHOW!!!! #$@%!!!!
As pissed as I am, if I didn't have to be up in about five hours, I'd start again...
Dang, fuck that! That completely sucks. With as much time as I invest into the game when I sit down to play it, I'd be extremely pissed, too, if something like that were to happen to me.
“You read about all these terrorists -- most of them came here legally, but they hung around on these expired visas, some for as long as 10-15 years. Now, compare that to Blockbuster; you are two days late with a video and those people are all over you. Let's put Blockbuster in charge of immigration.”

Yeah, I kind of wish he had allowed a save game function so you wouldn't have to totally start over in these type of situations. Sure, people would use it to cheat, but who cares? It's their game, if they wanna cheat, go nuts.
Do you have the latest update? That has the super-handy auto-booker function that allows you to keep that third show on the air without driving yourself nuts. Of course, if you didn't already update, that would have required you to start the game over too.
Sounds like you did a damn good job while you were in there.
gonna build a giant drill and bore straight into hell releasing ancient demons from their sleep-forever spell so they can walk upon the earth and get recituated and run the diet pill pyramid that MC Pee Pants has created
Right, well I would think that at the point Buffy jumped networks, they would've probably made a decision to cut the two shows off from each other to avoid getting into any trouble. Of course I could be completely wrong. -Jag
