What's #Trending Now? Networks Debut New Fall Shows
The 2011-2012 television season. Television networks will begin premiering new and returning TV shows the week of September 12. A quick search on Twitter and you'll find a lot of chatters about this coming season with great anticipations for the new series. Some of these shows look promising, which is good news for TV fans and of course for the networks. These new shows also present ample opportunities for product placements. TV fans may find them annoying. But hey, someone has to make money around here. That's the reality we live in, so let's have a little fun with it. Advertisers, take note!
Below are some fresh TV series that I will check out, along with my recommended products/brands that can be placed strategically within each show. Which show/s will you watch? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
