And today's campaign to save a show is for ... The Class
Well, I posted information on the campaign to keep Traveler on the air, as well as the send-in project to get Katharine McPhee back into the good graces of American Idol next season, so why the hell not post information on a new petition. I mean, its summer . . . what else to I have to do anyway?
Today's campaign is to renew the CBS comedy The Class. According to the campaign's very plain and easy-to-read website most people have been mailing in erasers and/or Moroccan Chicken recipes to CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler and Executive VP of Programming Kelly Kahl. They have also been sending in packs of Skittles because of a line mentioned by one of the characters ('I ate so many Skittles I peed the rainbow').
Erasers and Skittles are okay, but I think the fans are missing the thing that will turn this campaign around. Think about it: the show was about a reunion of 3rd grade classmates. Wouldn't it be better to send copies of yearbooks to these executives instead? Give it a shot and see if it works.
