I don’t know why I care, because I am not 17 to 24 and a lass, but I am pleased as punch with the cancellation of Alexa Chung’s chat-Facebook-faux show on MTV. It was AWFUL. It was clearly garbage from the moment she announced it at the MTV ad-buyer upfronts. The head of programming crowed, “It’s like if MTV and Facebook had a baby”! (To which we responded: “She is just Rocketboom plus Julia Allison plus platform extension, which I guess means there will be like eight girls locked in a room somewhere chatting on Facebook with viewers, sending messages that exhibit all the acumen and emotional connection of Eliza.”) And now, we see the truth about “social networking”-her Twitter and her Facebook have gone all quiet
. For once.
