Jericho: Digg Then and Now

Many thanks to Terocious for posting the following on the CBS board. I agree wholeheartedly!!

How pathetic that we all say we love Jericho and the outstanding cast and crew yet April gets 22 Diggs and Lennie gets 30. This is embarrassing! It looks like there aren't enough fans to come up with more Diggs than this.

Yes, Terocious, we want CBS to send these folks to talk shows but we can't even get some decent Diggs. I can imagine CBS laughing.

Look at the difference in these Dugg articles:

Resurrection: The fans save Jericho (1000 diggs)+ 94 comments

Save Jericho Nuts! Campaign Almost To 10000 lbs. of Nuts To CBS (2156 Diggs)+312 comments

Will CBS Find Closure For Jericho ? (1265 Diggs)+ 101 comments

This is part of what made CBS sit up and take notice of us. Does anybody care anymore? Are we so busy talking about promoting that we've forgotten how important Digg is to the very promotion we want and need?

If we want bloggers and media to notice us again and talk about Jericho then the front page of Digg is where we need to be.

"April Parker-Jones in her first ever interview about her role as Darcy Hawkins on Jericho has only garnered 22 Diggs.

Lennie James exclusive interview received 30 Diggs.

We want CBS to send these people out to talk shows but this is the best we as a collective can muster to support them and earn them exposure.

Rubber Poultry = 69 Diggs

Schumi = 48

Shaun O Mac = 42

Jeff Braverman = 27?

These people are heroes of the NUTS campaign and we still couldn't break 100.

221 Diggs could get any story we wanted on to the homepage in front of thousands of people who are looking for a good cause to further."

How badly do we want Jericho back for a 3rd season?

I totally agree. This is something that takes 5 seconds of time.

I don't understand why we don't have more diggers. Even if they aren't active on the board, digging can be done independently. The interviews from the cast were awesome to read. I hope fans catch their excitement for the new episodes and resume their promotion activities. I realize not everyone posts what they are doing on the CBS board so know that some are promoting on the QT. I hope our digg numbers go back up.

The lack of Diggers is probably in direct proportion to how busy the Jericho message boards have become, and that is very low. Part of the problem is that there isn't a whole lot of new information coming from CBS about the show. When there's nothing new to talk about, people wander off to other things.

I really think that people need to get back 'on the streets' to drum up interest, and those of us who are still here regularly need to figure out a way to get to CBS to do their job.

there is definitely not enough digging happening

for example if we were to look at each of the individual visitors looking at this page versus those that dugg the story i am sure there would be a big difference

You're right. The visitors to this blog far outnumber the Diggs an article gets.
