Hey fans, it's time to Save The Mole!

The Mole logoAnother week, another petition to save a show.

Producers of ABC's spy reality series The Mole have created a web site to save the ratings-challenged show -- Save The Mole. Right now the site consists of an open letter to fans from Scott Stone and Clay Newbill, the producers of the show.

They say that while a lot of critics agree that the show is one of the smarter reality shows, it's not doing well in that all-important 18 to 49 demographic. Those specific ratings are stale, but there's still time to save the show. They want hardcore fans to get other friends to watch the show, post on the ABC message boards, and go to the Mole Facebook page. They also announce that FOX Reality Channel will have a marathon of the current season this Sunday at 11 AM.

The site is very low-tech. Just black text on a white background with a couple of images. It's rather 1997-ish, but I actually like it.

While it may be deemed by critics as better (who knows why), the problem with this show is editing. Instead of a mystery where we are able to figure out who the "mole" is, we are instead provided with edits that point away from the mole. How about not providing false clues or possibly even better, starting off the show by letting us in on the secret to see how the mole plays and letting us view the quizzes to see how the players are doing. Poker only became a TV phenomena after we were let in on the secret of what the players hidden cards were.
