This dissertation investigates the potential influence of Social Television activities on television production and content. A case study approach, using interview, observation and textual analysis methods, investigates the popular television show Bones. Social TV is situated as being a useful production tool and a device that empowers viewers to socialize together and speak back to production. Findings indicate that although production personnel deny that they would change their show based on fan feedback, there are subtle but important changes occurring in production practices that do result in fan influence on content and the way the show is made.
