    Default Nov 16th is Worldwide 'Save Arrested Development' Day!

    From OhNoTheydidn't.com. I LOVE this show and will be seriously bummed if it actually goes off the air. One of the only bright spots on TV in my opinion. So, since I am such a fan, I wanted to share this with anyone else that is also a fan......

    November 16th has been declared the first of many Worldwide Save Arrested Development Days by fans of the show.

    From the campaign site:

    On November 16th we will not contact networks (my reason is below) but we will contact the media! David Letterman, Conan O'Brien, Howard Stern, Jay Leno, Ellen D, Jon Stewart & the ladies at The View along with TV Guide, EW & Variety. I kept the list down to people who understand our situation, have a large audience and who will most likely be willing to help us, as well as two entertainment magazines that appear to love the show and one that is read by everyone in Hollywood.

    Nov 28th is "The Second Worldwide Save Arrested Development Day" in which we contact NBC, ABC, UPN, HBO & Showtime to let them know that this brilliant sitcom is on the market and needs a home. We will also be contacting FOX to tell them they have made a huge mistake & should reconsider & we will also contact Arrested Development's top sponsors letting them know we appreciate their support. The reason we shouldn't contact the networks/sponsors yet is because we can generate buzz by contacting the media first.

    If we all work together and mail our letters on Nov 16th & Nov 28th we can accomplish something great and hopefully help save the show. Keep reading for more details about both dates.

    PLAN OF ACTION

    Nov 16th: contact the media to generate some attention. Let them know we love the show, need help to save it & would appreciate their helped.
    -By the time our letters arrive Jason Bateman will begin his talk show visits hitting The View on Nov 22 & Conan on the 24th, and I'm sure this campaign will be mentioned.
    -The talk shows we contact will hopefully pimp the show and bring AD more viewers. They will also get the attention of networks.
    -Same with the entertainment magazines.

    Nov 28th: By this time we will hopefully have some buzz around the show and the networks will surely know that the fans are working to keep it alive.
    -We contact FOX and let them know we love the show, they are making a huge mistake & should allow this show to win over an audience, it took Seinfeld 2 full seasons, give AD the same.
    -We contact AD's sponsors telling them we appreciate their support, mention which demographic we fall into/if we are a Nielson box owner & ask them to continue supporting AD in the future.
    -We contact other networks and let them know this amazing show might be on the market and they should jump at the chance to pick it up.

    I love this show. For some reason I keep feeling like somebody or some entity just doesn't want AD to survive. I can't really explain it. The show seems to have so many loyal viewers and I know efforts have been made to gain a wider audience and yet all I ever hear are reports that it's "not going to make it." It's almost as if AD started out with this big cloud hovering over it and it can't seem to shake the doom.

    Why do the stupid shows stay on TV while the great ones go kerplunk?

    I'm here! And I am PISSED!!! SIGN ME UP FOR THE ANGRY TORCH-WIELDING MOB!! Does anybody remember what Peter Griffin did to get Gumble to Gumble back on the air?

    You can rest assured: if I have spent the energy to call McDonald's for a credit when they messed up my drive thru order, then you can damn well believe that I'LL be writing my letter and making MY phone calls! Seriously, how dumb is FOX? I hope all the stoner college kids don't space on the campaign...

    It's shown on Aussie Foxtel cable TV too - I LOVE it. Hey, Rupert Murdoch is visiting his mother not far from here at the moment. Should I go and twist his balls??

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I didn't like the show at ALL... until I saw it on DVD. It's so much easier to appreciate when there are no commercials. Commercials ruin the flow of it. it should be on HBO or Showtime.

    In the words of Elaine from Seinfeld, "GET OUT!!" <<shove>> No way! The way you just put it out there I thought for sure I was just behind the times again. You're so the man!

    You are absolutely right! I didn't truly appreciate the show until I saw the AD 'Marathon' one Saturday afternoon on FX. It was great to see the episodes back to back--made so much more sense. It would have been even better w/o commercials. I can totally see HBO picking it up--and how great would the show be w/no holds barred???? EVEN BETTER!!
