TV goes to the Blogs
Official websites for television programs long have offered episode information, cast biographies and photo galleries, but the newest must-have accessory is a blog. While most blogs are opinions, thoughts or random comments similar to what’s found in a diary, newsletter or op-ed piece, TV show blogs range from factual to fictional to just plain funny.
On ABC’s Boston Legal, the blog is in the form of wacky Case Notes from lawyer Denny Crane (played by William Shatner). On NBC’s Medium, Allison Dubois’ husband, Joe, keeps a journal of her dreams. On CBS’ NCIS, Pauley blogs about anything going on that week; it is written by actress Pauley Perrette, who plays a goth scientist.
