The networks issued their verdicts last week and cancelled eight sci fi / fantasy shows. But now it’s your turn to speak up and vote for which of this season’s ill-fated genre shows should be saved. Below is the list of all ten series that were cancelled over the course of the 2013-14. Vote on which ones you believe should continue on. And once these are tallied, I will pass the results on to the networks where they will mean . . . . . . . . . . . . . very little.
The fact is that the broadcast nets and cable channels pay very little attention to internet polls, so I can’t tell you these results can save your favorite cancelled shows. But as fans of these shows continue their Save My Show campaigns, they can point to these results as well as their many petitions and trending Twitter topics to prove that the support is out (Also see the Cancelled Sci Fi Reddit Site as another way to publicize fan efforts to save a show). It’s one more log (maybe just a twig) to fuel the fire and convince the networks (or Netflix/Amazon) that these shows have plenty of fans and are worth saving.
And a note to all the fans of shows that are not Revolution: that one is going to kick your butt in this poll if the previous poll is any indication. But you can at least shoot for a strong second place!
So vote and pass the info along to get other fans to vote as well. Then check back frequently to see how your show is doing or follow the Cancelled Sci Fi Twitter Site for regular poll updates.
Ever wondered why your favorite science fiction and/or fantasy show disappeared from the television schedule, never to deliver anymore new episodes? The reason why, most likely, is that it was cancelled because its ratings were low. And this book looks at those many cancelled sci fi/fantasy shows as well as the Neilsen ratings and television networks that dictate their fates.
