How did the earthquake affect your favorite show?

I didn't hear about yesterday's earthquake from the usual sources, CNN or one of the major newspaper web sites. Nope, I heard about it on Twitter! Ah, the days of rapid communication. They're calling it TwitQuake, since everyone in the area of the quake made a note about it on their Twitter pages the moment it happened. It took CNN and Fox News a few minutes to catch up.

The quake made news on the blogs too, including Rich Sommers'. Rich plays Harry on Mad Men, and filming of the show was interrupted. Rich took the picture above showing cast and crew mingling outside the studio. The quake also interrupted things at the Big Brother house (probably a romp in the hot tub) and on Judge Judy (video!). The judge promptly told everyone to shut up because she knows more about earthquakes than anyone else. Sunset Tan also felt the 5.4 jolt but looked fantastic during it.

And if you were wondering, everyone at America's Best Dance Crew is safe.

I guess I moved to LA at an interesting time...it was my first quake and I guess it was the biggest in years! Just a bit of shaking though. And yeah the news covered it for so many hours!

I felt it during a meeting. I was in a rolling chair so I rolled with it!

When I got home...as usual..my soaps were interrupted. Hate that! How many people still watch those live?!? Most of the time you tape it just to skip the commercials!

Luckily they now are online.
