TV Junkie: Season Finale Night
Tonight has at least 12 season finales that we know about. Good luck!
Speaking of finales: Fans of "The Office" on Twitter can use
the hash tag "#theoffice" before, during and after the season finale to chat in real-time about the show, then follow the Tweetstream, and in addition, fans can continue following the NBC "Office" Twitter account independently of the finale using the name "@theofficenbc."
One of the things we really liked about "Fringe" was the fact that the commercials were limited - a segment would end with an announcement of "Fringe will be back in 60 seconds" and sure enough, the show would be back on, we even timed it. FOX did this by charging advertisers more for each break and then limiting the breaks. The experiment is over and "Fringe" will now be as riddled with commercials as any other show.Yeah, we get it, it's commercial TV, but we don't have to be happy about it. We'd like to get paid for our time watching those commercials as well.
Those of you into audience metrics might be interested in Optimedia US' release of their new Content Power Ratings system which measures viewer behavior across TV, web, and mobile with the (correct) understanding that a program doesn't just exist in a specific timeslot one night a week.
It's official, Jay Leno's final guest on "The Tonight Show" will be Conan O'Brien, on June 1st. Other guests in Leno's final week will be Mel Gibson, Prince, and Billy Crystal.
