5. The buck stops with you. No longer will you have the luxury of passing on client problems or office mishaps to someone else. As a freelancer, the proverbial buck does stop with you. In addition to negotiating with the occasional deadbeat client (it happens, even to the most careful of us) and soothing the irate client, you will also have to handle things like malfunctioning office equipment and missed payments. So when your laptop falls in love with the blue screen of death, there won’t be a handy IT person to come along to fix things for you, or to give you a new one. And when an up-to-now reasonable client turns out to be an ultra demanding one, yes, unfortunately you’re the one who’ll have to deal with the repercussions.

We're thinking about it as much more of a social experiment than a television show. [Sarah] had been thinking about doing a topical show again but wasn't sure what she wanted it to be and had been talking to [executive producer] Adam McKay about it. After the election, she saw the divide between people and thought, "If I were sitting around having a cup of coffee with this person and not talking politics, could we be friends?" I think the election was the thing she needed to really get inspired and motivated with material to get back in there.
