What If TV Were Crowdsourced?

If TV were to be interactive, and you could influence it on a whim, what would you do? Try to influence major plot decisions only? Or would you delve into the mundane?

The thing to overcome is the length of the production schedule. Live TV could do this so easily. Send a text, post on Facebook or twitter to affect the show, live. We’ve seen something similar with the various talent shows, but this wouldn’t be overnight voting, but could be instant polls during the show, a whole new level of interactivity. There have been a couple of shows and movies that tried to use apps on mobile devices. They would push data from the show to the people, but there wasn’t a lot of information going to the show producers from the people.

Do people want this level of interaction?
