Subject: DawnWatch tip: Boston Legal and animal rights activists -- Tuesday, January 30, 2007

Thanks to Marsha Rubin for this tip about tonight's (1/30/07) episode of Boston Legal, on ABC at 10pm (Check local listings):

"An irate Denny thunders to Bella's aid when she is attacked by animal-rights activists, but the conflict becomes personal when his ex-girlfriend--Bella's diminutive daughter Bethany--represents the protestors."

(Note to those outside the US -- I send this to my whole list, not just US, knowing that though the air dates differ, those in other countries also see Boston Legal and may wish to keep an eye out for this episode.)

Boston Legal has a message board where you can comment:

It would be nice to see lots of pro-AR comments up there.

I have no idea how this episode will go. We can be sure Denny Crane will be obnoxious, as his character always is (and generally funny too). But Boston Crane has a good history on animal issues, having done a superb job in 2005 of calling attention to the government's Mad Cow cover up. (See for a detailed DawnWatch alert on that episode.) Animal rights issues might get a decent hearing in tonight's episode -- or not -- we'll see.

The ABC Network takes feedback here:

One of the best things animal advocates can do for the animals is to maintain constant warm and constructive contact with the media.

Yours and the animals',
