Hawaii Five-O (@hawaiifive0cbs) is the first-ever show to allow fans to choose its ending in real-time.

Behind the scenes, the Hawaii Five-O production team will be tallying the votes, putting the post popular selection on air to end the show. More information on tonight’s episode can be found on last week’s Twitter Blog post.
