CBS continues its enlightened relationship with distributed media, putting up a bloggers’ kit with links and embeds for some of their new fall series. Here’s the upfront pitch for the Big Bang Theory, a sitcom about geeks and sex — or geeks who wish they could have sex with their gorgeous neighbor:
Smart. The only thing that would be smarter would be to go ahead and put the preview up on YouTube so it can be discovered there. Two fans already did it — one of them pleading, “no copyright infringement intended” — here and here. This is a show about geeks so you know geeks will promote it with geeky tools.
NBC lets you watch and link to the previews. Embedding would be wiser. Here are ABC previews; each show has a page so it’s linkable but not embeddable. I’d show you Fox’s perviews, but the link off their home page is broken; it goes to Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader? Guess not.)
