Just a bunch more of super wealthy pigs who horde their money. Meanwhile, the country is going to hell.

Originally, Cosby set the standard for syndy income. But Seinfeld has blown it out of the water. Ever wonder why even the bit players don't do much work and can pick and choose their projects. The syndy deals made them wealthy. Larry David doesn't have to work and only does the projects he really likes and can have a lot of creative control. His income cap on Seinfeld was set at $2B. He surely reached it and I'm sure they gave a new limit. How great would that be to get on a show and have residual checks that keep you in clover the rest of your life. Sometimes it hurts you. That's when you don't need money and wind up doing movies like, "Leonard, Part Six."
