Hi, I have been very fortunate to get 7 TV placements since May (4 months before this post). I still haven’t seen any cue sheets appear in my ASCAP account. I know it can take a while and I’m being patient. My question is: do cue sheets generally appear all at once during a PRO distribution date? Or can they appear at any time? Also do certain networks tend to submit them earlier than others?
I’m with BMI and most of the times cue sheets do not appear at all.
Compared to the quarterly payments i receive from BMI, i would say i only get around 10% of the cue sheets of these payments.
Those that get registered to my account though, are registered with no particular order (some of them when the placement occurs,some others in the end of the quarter etc).
From what i’ve read, ASCAP handles cue sheets better than BMI.
But still,i’d say don’t hold your breath about cue sheets’ registration.
