Credit where its due
It's shameless plug day today. Channel TEN and Nine borrow a few words from TV Tonight to promote their shows.
Ok, this is a shameless plug.
In the last two weeks both Channel TEN and Channel Nine have borrowed quotes from TV Tonight in on-air promos for two of their dramas, Life and Secret Diary of a Call Girl. Whoever said they weren’t paying attention?
Using such quotes is clearly a win / win. It gives the shows a snappy critique and it gives this site a little extra exposure. Nine even went one better than TEN and listed the full address with the .com.au (cheers guys!).
TV Tonight has long been aware that industry execs read this blog, but now here’s proof. Of course, it also means they’re monitoring your comments on this very site.
In fact the comments for Secret Diary of a Call Girl were actually those of readers (congrats to Sway Slayer and Matt). That’s a little on the cheeky and wicked side in itself, but I’ll let it slide on this occasion.
TEN’s quote is from a review in 2007. I stand by what I wrote, the show is still smart and stylish….
For the record, networks are welcome to borrow unedited quotes from Reviews on this site, including the star rating, with the full address tvtonight.com.au
All other quotes should be sourced upon request. Reader comments should not be used.
