With So Many Bloggers, Let's Put on a Show!

Glad to hear that I'm not alone: According to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, there are about a gazillion bloggers online. And apparently many of them are younger than I am and go to a lot more clubs and bars.

Okay, not a gazillion. Not even a bajillion. But 12 million bloggers in the U.S. counts for plenty.

Some of them you've heard of, most you haven't. Which leaves room for the TV series, since everything seems to become a TV series these days, what with those niche channels like Fuel, Speed, Lifetime Movies, and the all-telenovelas-all-the-time MyNetworkTV (the leftovers from the UPN-WB merger--as Dave Barry would say, I'm not making this up), The Utter Trash Channel, and so on. (Okay, I did make up that last one.) There's just so much material out there!

The show would go something like this: "There are 12 million stories in the Naked Blogosphere. This is one of them." Everyone could get a shot at telling their stories on TV--how your pregnancy went; why you hate grocery shopping; is Lyndon LaRouche still a viable candidate for POTUS; world's worst job interview; and the ever-popular funny pictures of your cat.

Boston bloggers would of course get episodes devoted to Sox love, Big Dig dismay, the best place to eat lobstah, how rude/nice/odd/special Bostonians are, and why New Yorkers should stop talking funny.

Being blog-based, many of the stories would be rambling, some funny, some gripping, many misspelled and grammatically incorrect. Some would make you think you'd discovered an amazing new talent, others would make you go "eh." Just like the blogosphere.

I think it could work. Bloggers, start your pitches!

Sounds like a good concept for a tv show!

Thanks! And with an endless amount of potential material. But would we have to "vote" some bloggers off? Come to think of it, I can recommend a few of those...:-)
