I can't find anything on this in this forum, or doing broad Internet Searches.

What's with the Watermark I have been seeing on many if not all TV show now where it shows as #<NameOfTheShow>, IE: #FRINGE, #WHITECOLLAR, #JUSTIFIED, #etc...?

Kind Regards,

Just another way to maximize ad spending... get people to do their own advertising.

Just more network graffiti on the screen as they try and drive viewers away.

As if I would go to any website about a TV show, excluding here of course.

Twitter address would be @ sign, hash tag is a way to get something "trending" on twitter, so it's a way to try and get viewers to advertise they are watching the show, as Stuart said.

TV show websites can be very informative. Lots of backstories and cast information.

But I'm not a birdbrain so I don't do the looney bird site.
