Tonight’s episode of “Hawaii 5-0” will have a real-time twist: viewers will be encouraged to use Twitter to choose how the episode will end.
According to Deadline.com, the producers have filmed three endings of the episode, about a university professor who was murdered. Viewers in the East Coast/Central and West Coast time zones will be able to go to CBS.com or Twitter to cast their votes for who they think was the culprit: #theBoss, #the TA or #theStudent. CBS will tally the votes “immediately” and then show the ending that the viewers chose.
I’m not a fan of the show but I’m curious to see how it all works. I’ll watch and report back tomorrow. One question I have is how quickly CBS will try to tally votes.
