MSNBC Letting Facebook Users Decide Which Season of Lockup to Air

MSNBC had a dilemma: With prison documentary series Lockup set to debut another season July 2, the network had two seasons ready to air, on Boston and Tampa, Fla. So it turned to its 102,944 (at post time) Facebook fans to help it decide.

The network posted a poll on the Lockup Facebook page Friday, asking fans to choose whether the season starting July 2 should feature Boston or Tampa.

At the time of this post, Boston was running away with the voting, holding a 996-441 lead, but voting runs through June 26, so Tampa prison aficionados still have time to lock up Lockup.
