Bones Ratings: A Night at the Bones Museum

Last night's Bones ratings show a slow start with a big gain. Good sign - Flashforward may have started higher, but Bones gained all the advantage in the 2nd half. Hope those viewers start at the right place next time!

LA TIMES - TV industry and Twitter

LA Times examines the TV industry and Twitter with a heavy focus on Hart Hanson. Thanks for the link goes to Poetic_Line (aka Rosalyn who is quoted in the article).

How do you view Twitter and Bones? I may be the kid on the sidewalk looking through the grubby window, but I see it as a mixed bag. It is absolutely wonderful to have such close access to the people who make this show happen and to be able to reach new fans through an explosively popular medium but, at the same time, I feel like so much is lost in the here-and-gone nature of Twitter. If you comment on a forum or a blog it stays indefinitely but the discussion on Twitter flies by. Immediate, but fleeting. And it's hard to jump in to all the flying tweets for anyone not there 24/7.

What do you think?
