For those not already in the know, what is Channel 101? According to their website:
So drop by and vote for my show. If nothing else, it'll expedite production of new episodes since, if our ratings demand it, I'll have to keep cranking these things out.
Every month, five-minute TV shows are screened for a live audience in New York City. The audience votes to renew some shows and cancel others.
The top five shows become the new "prime time" lineup; losing shows are banished forever.
The next month, prime time shows return with new episodes, pitted against each other and a crop of fresh new pilots.
At Channel 101, your entertainment destiny is in your hands. If you like a show, nurture it with your votes and it will bloom into a series. If you don't like a show, it goes away. Wouldn't it be great if "real" television worked this way?
