Desperate Housewives Close In On New Deal

Wow, has it been 8 seasons already?? Time flies!

But that's good news for the ladies of Desperate Housewives, because that means they're in the middle of a renegotiation of deals, and with anything that lasts that long you know they're pretty much going to get what they want to come back!

Here's what's up:

"The deals are for one year, with an option for a second. With the quartet on board, ABC will renew the show for an eighth season though it is unclear if that will happen right away or closer to the May upfronts. Their new base salary would be around $325,000 per episode, up from about $275,000 under their most recent deals. With additional compensation, including back-end and bonuses, the actresses' paychecks are expected to go up as high as $375,000 per episode. If their options for Season 9 are exercised, their base salary is slated to go up to around $350,000, plus other incentives. If Desperate Housewives goes to nine seasons, which has always been creator Marc Cherry's vision for the show, the four leading ladies' entire compensation package for the next two seasons is valued at close to $18 million for each."

18 million dollars for two seasons?!? That's an incredible deal! Of course, it's no where near what the MaSheen was getting for Two and a Half Men, but it is nothing to shake a stick at.

Impressive, ladies! We hope you land the deals you want, and we can't wait to see you back on our TVs!!

    so whatever happened to Nicolette S. lawsuit? I only care about her character, the other characters suck ball and I expected more bitchiness from the talented vanessa williams, she was a good villain in Ugly Betty but her talent are not being utilized here. Anyways, the show needs to go bye bye

    I'm a big fan of Desperate Housewives! However, one would think by all the irregularities in episode airing this season, ABC is trying to kill it off! This season has got to be the worst when it comes to consistent air time! So, if and when they do decided to cancel, let's hope the show goes out with the biggest bang imaginable! Perhaps a major earthquake shakes Wisteria Lane to the core, followed by a tsunami that just washes it all away? Another option could be a major natural gas explosion blows our beloved housewives off the face of the Earth? Hmmmm…..maybe Paul Young finally gets the girls to drink the Kool-Aid? Whatever it may be, it better be BIG!

    I'm excited to have Desperate Housewives to come back for Season 8! It's still a hit. And I think that ABC needs to start paying attention to when they air the episodes. Because seriously, they need to stop airing them during award shows because that's when the ratings take a hit. But it still proves to be a hit in the ratings and still remains the number 1 watched scripted show on ABC! ABC needs to stop showing favoritism to other shows. I'm glad to see the ladies back and I hope they stay for Season 9 also!
