Georgie's Editor...er Producer...is upset...


Georgie-with-his-Editor_4

So, I had to waste my whole Monday Morning sitting in my Editor’s Office (who how calls himself my “Producer”), listening to him go on and on about what a disaster my first Interview Show was.

We’re taking a quick Lunch Break, then I hafta go back to his Office and waste the rest of this otherwise Better-Than-Most Monday. Geeeeeeeze. Even more aggravating is that it’s a Perfect Day out, and I had planned to spend this afternoon working on my tan.

When I walked in this morning, my Editor…er…Producer just looked at me, and in a Highly Sarcastic Tone said, “Do you realise,” he said, “that you got a 0.000000087% Market Share from your first Broadcast?”

“That’s good, right?” I figured since it wasn’t all 0’s, so that meant SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE was watching, right?

“No,” he said, “that is not good. In fact, it’s horrible. Why do you think pretty much everybody DIDN’T watch your Show, bee?”

“Beecause,” I had guess, “my Show was on in the middle of the night when everybody was asleep? And beecause most of my audience don’t own TV’s?”

“You’d love to blame Station Management, wouldn’t you?” he just kept buzzing at me as he pounded his wing on his Desk.

“NO. It’s beecause your first Interview Guest did not show up. You failed to get her to appear on your Show.”

“Well yeah she did show up,” I attempted to correct him, “she just wouldn’t let anybody see her, that’s all. But I’m almost 100% completely sure that’s why they’re called Brown Recluse Spi…,” but he interrupted me.

“No, more excuses, bee. I’m giving you one more chance. That’s it. If your guest this week doesn’t appear on camera, I’ll bee cancelling your Show, and we’ll just broadcast back-to-back Episodes of those Pharmacetical Mini-Dramas everybody finds so entertaining and informative.”

“But…” I started to say.

“Nobody wants that. Probably. So this afternoon - and for as long as it takes - you will bee HERE, meeting with your Production Team in THIS OFFICE and providing us with your assurances that we do not find ourselves having to rely on Pharmaceuticals. Am I CLEAR?”

I told him that beeyond any shadow of any doubt, I completely and fully understood most of what he seemed to want me to do, probably, but reminded him that this week’s Scheduled Guest is a Field Cricket, and they mostly also don’t like to bee seen in public. Especially on TV.

“Not my problem, bee,” he said. “That’s YOUR problem. And YOU will SOLVE IT.”

Then he told me to get out of his Office and bee BACK to meet with my Production Team by Noon - Or Else.

So I hafta do that.

Geeeeeeeze. I’ve just been kinda sitting here since then, thinking about getting ready to go to lunch and trying to figure out how to get a Cricket to appear on Camera. This isn’t gonna bee easy, ya' know?

By the way, what time is it?

Oh geeeeeeeeze. I gotta’ go.

Bee sure to tune in to my new Show on Thursday!

Until then . . . let’s all bee careful out there!

Happy 1st Day of the New Hot Season!

I just want to bee the first to wish everybody a Happy First Day of the New Hot Season! Even if I’m not the first one to say that to you today, just pretend I was so that we both feel better about the whole thing, okay?

PleaseStandBy-Tues20th


So, as you can see, Kevin managed to finish fixing the Technical Problem we were experiencing with our Broadcast Signal. We’re ready to start the Show. Mostly.

My first Interview will bee the day after tomorrow, and I’ve been very busy getting her ready for her Life-Changing Appearance on my Show. At the moment, she’s beeing a bit difficult, though, and keeps telling me she isn’t sure if she wants to do the Interview.

“You know how I am about publicity,” she told me yesterday. I told her I did, but that I was completely sure everything was gonna bee fine, probably.

I dunno why, but she still doesn’t seem convinced. But don’t worry. I’m a very persuasive bee, as you already know. All the marketing on her Appearance has already been sent out, and unless she wants to hafta deal with my lawyer (S.O.Bee) and a massive Breach of Contract Suit, she’ll show up for her Interview. A deal’s a deal, right?

Okay then. I gotta go bee persuasive somewhere else.
Again, Stay Tuned for my New Show on Thursday!

Until then…let’s all bee careful out there.

Georgie runs into some Technical Difficulties...

PleaseStandByCard-Thurs15th


Well, I was planning to start broadcasting my New Show - The Georgie Bee Interview Show - today; unfortunately, as you can probably see, we’re still having some Technical Difficulties.

I’ve asked Kevin (my Illegitimate Nephew) if he might bee able to help me out. We need to bee sure there’s a highly clear picture when my first Show goes on the Air. We owe it to you, our Beeloved Viewing Audience, to provide you with a Broadcast Image that is clear and contains each and every festive colour necessary for a successful Broadcast.

Kevin has assured me that he knows what the Problem is, and that he’ll have it fixed in plenty time for me to meet my Editor’s Deadline.

“According to my assessment of the situation,” he said, “and what it will require to affect an effective solution to the problem, I will need approximately a week. Maybee less. But I beelieve I can say with confidence that your Show should bee on the Air no later than next Thursday.”

“You’d better have it working by then, Kevin,” I told him, “OR ELSE! And thanks a whole bunch.” (I figured he would bee more motivated to work quickly if I delegated the Or Else my Editor gave to me, ya’ know?)

He just gave me a funny look and said, “Uncle Georgie, you’re my favourite uncle in the world, and I love you, but sometimes, you can bee a bit overly-demanding. All the same, you’re welcome.”

Anyway. I’m gonna spend the rest of day finishing up my Master List of Interview Guests sometime this week, then I’m gonna spend the weekend working on my diction. Somebody told me that, if nobody can understand what you’re saying on TV, they just won’t listen.

That’s probably true.

So remember… bee sure to tune in next week as we get ready to change the face of Broadcast Television, mostly.

STAY TUNED - and let’s all bee careful out there!

Georgie Gets a New Assignment...

Well, what should have been an otherwise Perfectly Ideal Monday got started in a seriously unpleasant way when I had to go see my Editor in his Office this morning. He didn’t even offer me any Morning Nectar. And, for some reason, he seemed upset.

Georgie-with-his-Editor_4


“Bee,” he said as soon as I walked in.

“Yes?” I said.

“Do you realise what you’ve done?”

“You mean, that thing with The Chair?” I asked.

“No,” he said. “I’m talking about last week’s Final Issue of ‘Life in the Stump’. You made a complete mess of things.”

“I did?”

“You did,” he said. “In particular, I suppose you don’t remember Item #2, the Item announcing the Ticket Sales for the Welcome to the New Hot Season Gala?”

“Yeah, I read that,” I said. “What about it?”

“Well, I will say that the headline was fine, but…”

“Yes, I thought it was very informative,” I interrupted him.

“Don’t interrupt me,” he said. “But the story? It was wrong! Wrong! Wrong! WRONG! You had the dates for ticket reservations ALL WRONG!”

“I did? I don’t even think I wrote any of that Report, since I was stuck in The Chair. Are you sure…” I tried to tell him I didn’t write that Item, but he seemed convinced I was the one who had messed up.

“First of all, June 14th is NOT on a Sunday. Secondly, ticket reservations had to bee in beefore last Friday. That was the 9th. Not the 14th. And the Event was on Sunday, the 11th, which you never reported at all. That means NO tickets were ordered, and nobody showed up. Rudy is furious. And it’s all beecause of your incorrect reporting of the Facts!”

Then he paused, looked at me, and asked, “Are you happy?”

I had to think about that for a minute or two.

“I guess I'd hafta say I’m pretty happy,” I answered. “I mean, my butt’s still a little sore from that Chair, but yeah, I’d say I’m happy, mostly. Why do you ask?”

“Bee,” he said as he started pointing his wing at me like he does sometimes, “it has beecome crystal clear that, when it comes to handling the sacred responsibility of accurately reporting the News, you simply cannot bee trusted.”

Geeeeeeze. I don’t know why he would say something like that, since I don’t think I was even the one who wrote last week’s Issue. I mean, he should’ve known I was still stuck in The Chair, so somebody else must’ve written all that wrong stuff. But he did blame me and there didn’t seem to bee much I was going to bee able to say to change his mind about that. Whatever.

“As of now, you will no longer bee our ‘Bee on the Street’, and you will no longer bee trusted to report the News that is important to the Hive,” he told me.

“But…” I started to say, but he buzzed me to bee quiet.

“BZT! The Editorial Board of the Bee Times Gazette Journal Record…and Online News has discussed this matter. Upon my Recommendation, the Decision has been made to move you OFF of Reporting, and INTO the Broadcast Entertainment Division, where you will bee responsible for creating, producing and airing a Weekly Programme. I don’t care what it’s about, as long as it has nothing to do with the News.

“It must bee in a format your viewers will find both interesting AND entertaining, and which, through the Sponsors YOU will find for this Programme, will bring in the honey revenues which you, through your lack of Attention to Detail, have cost us…” he said.

“But…” I started to say.

“…and your first Show WILL bee Broadcast no later than 48 hours after the beeginning of the New Hot Season - OR ELSE!”

“But, I haven’t done anything like that beefore. Beesides, nobody in the Hive has TV sets. And… .” I started to say, but he just gave me a dirty look and said, “Not my problem, bee.”

Then he said, “Now get out of my Office!”

So I did that.

So okay fine. Now I hafta do a Weekly TV Broadcast for everybody in the Hive, except that nobody in the Hive can ever watch it, since nobody in the Hive has a TV. Of course I guess maybee they can Stream it on their Devices and watch it that way. Or something.

Luckily, I already have a Massively Superior Idea for my New Show. It was so obvious, it came to me almost immediately. I figure that, since my Exclusive Interview with Queen Jemima a few weeks ago went so amazingly well, I am going to do a Weekly Interview Show, and I am going to call it, “The Georgie Bee Interview Show”.

It’s gonna bee great.

So, over the next several many days, I’ve gotta build a Set, find Camera Equipment and Lights, hire a Script Assistant, decide what I’m gonna ask each Guest who will bee on my Show, and figure out everything else I’ll need to do to win the coveted Beezer™ Award for Best Domestic, Possibly-Foreign-Language Non-News Interview-Format Programming in the Category of Mostly Semi-Non-Fictional InfoTainment, Daytime. (I’d go for the Nighttime Award, but I don’t wanna stay up that late, ya’ know?)

I’m mostly sure I’ll win.

Okay then. I gotta go get to work on all of this right away, so I’ll bee back as soon as my New Show’s ready to Broadcast! I know everybody’s as excited as I am. Probably.

So as they say in the TV buzziness: STAY TUNED!

Until then…let’s all bee careful out there!
