10/30/08: Save the Pie Hole!

Dear Dick Wolf:

I know I haven’t written in two weeks (I’m totally preoccupied with redesigning my business website at the moment, more on that later), and I know this post has nothing to do with Law & Order, but it does have everything to do with quality television programming – which you know a little something about…

One of my *other* favorite shows is in serious danger of being cancelled – Pushing Daisies. It started off with a bang, scoring numerous Emmy and Golden Globe noms its first season out, but fell victim to the writers’ strike. Now that it’s back, it hasn’t yet picked up the steam it originally had – but it will, I know it will! It just needs a little more time…

Bottom line: We can’t let the execs at ABC cancel Pushing Daisies. So, since you’re a renowned TV mogul and they’ll probably listen to you (even if it is a rival network), I was hoping you could sign the petition to keep this insanely adorable and innovative program on television. It doesn’t conflict with any L&O slots, so we’re good. Just go HERE to add your name to the list. It’s that easy!

Oh, and if you could spread the word and get all of your bigwig buddies to do the same, I’d be forever grateful. As, I’m sure, would Ned the Pie Maker, Chuck, Olive Snook, Emerson Cod, Digby and the rest of the gang. Not to mention the incredibly talented writers and crew, as well as millions and millions of viewers – who unfortunately may not have a loud enough collective voice of their own.

Thank you so much!

Long live the Pie Hole!

  1. A friend of mine just emailed me one of your articles from a while back. I read that one a few more. Really enjoy your blog. Thanks

  2. Thank you, Jeff! I appreciate you reading! Now go sign the petition 😉

  3. Mass fan mail begins tomorrow: please tell as many people as you can to write to ABC or go to there message boards, time is running out for pushing daisies:

    From November 3rd to November 10th, fans will be sending a letter a day to ABC requesting they renew ‘Daisies’. We want to flood their boxes with mail for daisies for a week.

    You are encouraged to send daisies (paper or real) Daisy seeds, Bouquets of Daisies, Pies (also paper or real) or just a letter. Send a few a day if you can afford it!

    **Emailing is a great, but please send a tangible letter also. Having a full mailbox right there in front of them as opposed to on the internet sends a more powerful message.

    Write to:

    ABC, Inc. 500 S. Buena Vista Street Burbank, CA 91521-4551

    Email them here:

    http://abc.go.com/site/contactus.html?lid=ABCCOMGlobalFooter&lpos=CONTACT

    ALSO- Sign the petition. You can technically sign it as many times as you want, with only one email address. (Use different names) I have a friend who has signed it a LOT. http://www.petitiononline.com/daisies/petition.html

    Finally, WATCH THE SHOW! Turn on all the tv’s in the house! leave on the online episode player for the latest episode while you’re out shopping! Anything to help the ratings!!

  4. Awesome info – thanks!
