Newspaper Ideas Cont’d: ‘Character References’ Column

Gossip columns are popular, and so are TV series. Doesn’t it seem sometimes that people are almost as interested in TV characters as they are in real people? Aha! Do a newspaper column called Character References that’s “gossip” about what happened last night on TV. Write it up in chatty mock-shock-schlocky style. Boldface the unreal names. Only the wildest, wickedest, newsiest fictional events make the cut. Could broaden it to include famous characters from books and movies, too.
