A BAR OF Zest soap sits bare on the dresser. We are in Kenneth Mitchell’s trailer on the Los Angeles set of Jericho, his hip new CBS show (seen in Canada on Citytv). Certainly he can find a washroom, so why is this soap being treated like some grand prize?

Deserves props for: Being one of the creative forces behind upstart CBS drama Jericho. The Elkins Park native was a development executive for director Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure) when childhood pal Jonathan Steinberg came to him with an idea for a show. The premise: How would a small town in Kansas cope after a massive nuclear attack ravaged America’s urban centers? A year and a half later Jericho is the top show in its Wednesday timeslot.

When the video-sharing site YouTube.com was sold to Google, many of its users worried that corporate ownership would restrict the content of its videos. But now one of YouTube’s corporate partners is changing the ways that users comment on those videos instead.
The comments on many of the videos posted by CBS have now been moved to a separate page; instead of sample comments underneath the videos, a link to “view all comments” takes users to a separate Web page where they can read comments without watching the video at the same time.
CBS began moving and filtering comments on some videos in mid-October, shortly after announcing its licensing agreement with YouTube, in order to remove “profane, unconstructive criticism,” and off-topic political vitriol, said Quincy Smith, the president of CBS Interactive.
“We just want to make sure the front page is a little bit cleaner,” Mr. Smith said, adding that comments containing certain profanities are caught by an automatic filter, while the remaining comments are then vetted by someone who works at CBS or YouTube and moved to the separate page. “We thought it was a better user experience, and it gives us a second to weed out the completely unuseful comments.”
