Jamie Bamber Goodness to Occupy You Until 'Monday Mornings' Tonight
I intended to do a round up of miscellaneous news and links this weekend, but, hey, it turns out my procrastination was a good thing. ;) Late last night Jamie announced he and Jennifer Finnigan would be live tweeting tonight's episode of Monday Mornings! The tweeting shall commence at 7pm pacific / 10pm eastern time. For the west coasters, if you have Direct TV you can watch and follow along at 7 tonight. And for those not on Twitter, make sure to take a look at Jamie and Jen's Twitter pages tonight: @ImJamieBamber and @Jennigan.

While we don't have plans to copy their tweeting in it's entirety here, I'm sure we will post some highlights tomorrow in the episode discussion post.

We haven't discussed Monday Mornings ratings the past couple of weeks so let's rectify that. Week 4 showed ratings had stabilized with about 1.24 million viewers tuning in 'live'. And last week (Week 5), saw ratings rise to 1.45 million viewers. That's a 17% increase (thank you, Jamie, for doing the math ;) in live viewership. It would be great of the ratings continued in that direction. Tonight's Dallas, which deals with JR's funeral, should see a significant bump in ratings. Hopefully, some of those viewers will stick around for Monday Mornings.

BuzzyMag.com posted a a great interview with Jamie regarding his work on Monday Mornings. At the end of the interview, Jamie stated he didn't know what project he might be tackling next, but, on Twitter, he mentioned a potential project shooting in the UK for Kudos, which produced Law & Order: UK. But don't get excited, people. Matt Devlin is not rising from the dead. ;)

In John Doe news, Deadline.com reported the interactive game, ‘Vigilante’, was launching ahead of ‘John Doe’. I'm hoping this means we will have news regarding the film's release soon.

And if you want the best look yet of Jamie in John Doe, check out the show reel of the film's editor, James Cole. You can see the John Doe footage at around the :52 & 1:36 marks.

Bless his cotton socks. He's aiming to make this Twitter thing count, isn't he? ;)

BTW, have been holding back, but I kind of need to say this: Jamie has been on Twitter now for five days. TNT have said NOTHING. None of their accounts are following him, both he AND Jen announced that they'd be doing the live tweet thing last night, and so far this morning the only tweet from the official MM account is a paid sponsorship for a spa. What is going on in that PR department?! :/

(I'm sure I'm tempting fate by saying something and they'll tweet about it within the hour now or something. But I've refrained from saying anything to give them the benefit of the doubt and sometimes we have to get shit off our chest, right?)

It really feels like the moment the numbers for the pilot came in TNT dropped it like a hot potato. Not that they did great work *before* it aired but I think after the first ep they were just "done" with the show. Admittedly, I know very little about the television industry so what it looks like to me may not be at all what it is.

Admittedly, this is kind of how I felt in the week or so following the pilot, too. The more I started to read/hear though, the more it started to look like a much more complicated issue and one tied into a much larger problem at TNT. Seeing comments from people who are not fans but rather industry pundits commenting on blogs wondering why they don't invest more in selling a show prior to launch was one thing. But more importantly, since then there's been a pervasive sense from almost everyone I've talked about it with that they are just not harnessing the potential of their social media like they should be. I've seen Southland cast members comment about people not knowing the show was back. Even with Dallas, which tonight of all nights they should be really digging their heels into on social media, they're not doing much of anything. (I saw Linda Gray tweeting about it not because of TNT, but because my friend who watches the show RTed her!)

The cast, bless them, really seem to be trying to do what they can on their own; even before Jamie caved and joined, Jen and Sarayu were sort of informally doing live tweets the past couple of weeks. It would be so nice if the network kicked in their share, though. Who knows what might be diverting their attention that isn't social media-related, but from that purview alone I can't see what else is demanding all that much of their time. (I run three social media accounts at my job on top of all my other duties, so I feel like I might have a semi-educated view on this. ;) )

I'm afraid Matt Devlin rising from the dead will only happen in our heads and fanfic :(

It's good to see the ratings going in right direction
