Recently, as news of the broadcast primetime show cancellations have sunk into the mass of fans who’ve not been keeping up with our Renew / Cancel Index and Bubble Watch posts, my email, and our comments spam filter have been filled with all manner of “Save Our Show” efforts focused around posting to a Facebook page for a particular cancelled show.
Posting a comment to a Facebook page has no more chance to save a cancelled show than all manner of other nonsense, but the rise of Facebook SoS efforts certainly seems like fans have gotten lazy in their quixotic quests. I should add that there is the occasional “retweet this link” nonsense SoS effort on Twitter, but they, in my anecdotal experience, are far outnumbered by Facebook efforts.
[Cue appropriate old man voice] Back in my day, we had to walk 73 miles to the post office, in a blizzard, uphill, to mail in our assorted crap to the networks in our futile efforts to save our cancelled TV shows.
Kids these days!
