The remote controllers

This New York Times Magazine story (registration required) is an excellent piece of reporting, showing how the passioned but apoplectic community of Televisionwithoutpity.com has caught the ear of Hollywood. The site’s articulate recaps and member criticisms have become the bane of some excutives and required reading for others:

’’If the Internet is your audience, TV is quite like a play,’’ Abrams (of ABC’s “Alias") says. ‘’Movies are a done deal—there’s no give and take—but in a play, you listen to the applause, the missing laughs, the boos. It’s the same with the Internet. If you ignore that sort of response, you probably shouldn’t be working in TV right now.’’
It’s good to see someone in TV gets it.
