Jericho: Must-See-TV ?
" Jericho qualifies as Must-See-TV. I know, that’s an NBC phrase, and Jericho is a CBS series, but I can’t think of any other way to describe it. Kevin and I have been completely engrossed for the past several nights. We are on episode nine, and our sleep patterns are suffering because we can’t just watch one episode in an evening. Thursday night, we put in disc two, intending to watch one episode and then go to bed, and we ended up watching three and not getting to bed until midnight."
Myles does a great job with his Hey Nielsen post. He'll be posting something every day this week. Great article.
"One of the problems that Hey! Nielsen faces is that the fans who reach the site are almost all primarily arriving via other forms of social networking: Message Boards, MySpace, LiveJournal, etc. The problem is that many of these people, then, are used to the systems already in place, and a whole new interface (And a confusing one: opinions, ratings, comments are all unique measurements to the site, as we’ll get to tomorrow) is nearly impossible to understand immediately."
"ABC, Others Rush to Put Shows Online, but Their Delivery Methods Vary"
"The hottest gadgets around these days include iPods, high-definition flat-screen TVs and digital video recorders. Eager to keep up, the broadcast networks have all launched their own online video viewers to reach that growing audience that's at ease watching video not on their TV sets."
