If you’re alive and not living underground, you’ve no doubt heard about AMC’s show “Breaking Bad”. A lot of people consider it to be one of the best TV shows of all-time.
An article from Lost Remote says that the series finale brought in over 10-million viewers, up 300 percent from last year’s finale.
In this day and age, it’s not uncommon for shows to boost viewership in later seasons due to the advent of Netflix allowing users to binge-watch shows and catch up to a season that’s currently airing.. But, as far as I know, there has never been this drastic and sudden of a jump.
This begs the question, what is it that makes Breaking Bad so appealing to the masses? Could it be that it’s just a fad and people jumped on the bandwagon? Or, is it because it might possibly be one of the greatest things to ever be on TV?
I’d give you my opinion, but I wouldn’t want to accidentally spoil anything for you. In my humble opinion, watch it. It doesn’t get any better than “Bad”.
This is Jim Ross’ blog from him website JR’s BarBQ. He’s a former Pro Wrestling commentator.
I think the greatest strength of this blog is that JR shows that he knows who his audience is and keeps a lot of his content is wrestling related. He clearly knows most of his readers are wrestling fans and he plays to them very well. He uses Twitter frequently to build his audience.
Here’s his Twitter https://twitter.com/JRsBBQ.
Another favorite blog of mine is the Los Angeles Clippers Blog on ESPN’s website. http://espn.go.com/blog/los-angeles/clippers
The strengths of this blog are similar to the ones above. They clearly know most of their readers are Clippers fans. Therefore, they try to keep fans updated as much as possible about the team, even during the off-season. They don’t do a ton to build their audience, as I assume that they think if fans want to find content, they will find it themselves.
The last blog I’ll talk about is the official NFL Blog.
I think the strength of this blog is that it gives analysis that you aren’t going to find in just any news story. It’s another resource for people to use when they are looking for extra analysis on their favorite team. Just like the one above, though, they don’t do much to build their audience. The NFL website is more focused on getting readers for their regular stories.
