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 Digg.com 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?
