Save One Show Campaign Begins
Kristin Veitch of E! Online has begun her annual SOS - Save One Show campaign with a dedicated voting booth on the E! website designed for site visitors to vote for their favorite show among this year's endangered species.
According to Kristin, the shows least likely to return are The Class (CBS), Close To Home (CBS), The Nine (ABC), Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (NBC) and Veronica Mars (The CW).
The shows whose fate is uncertain are Crossing Jordan (NBC), Gilmore Girls (The CW), Jericho (CBS), Medium (NBC), One Tree Hill (The CW), Six Degrees (ABC), Supernatural (The CW), What About Brian (ABC) and... gasp... How I Met Your Mother (CBS).
Apparently there is a CBS executive who really hates "Mother", does not understand its buzz and critical acclaim and wants it off the schedule by the end of this season.
The said executive is also the person responsible for not giving "Mother" post-Super Bowl slot this year, as suggested by many TV critics who were mostly appalled by the network's decision to waste the precious slot on the hideous "Criminal Minds".
Kristin believes only "30 Rock", "Friday Night Lights" and "Scrubs" (all on NBC) are safe to return for the 2007-2008 season, due to the network's strong support despite lackluster ratings performance.
Last year's SOS winner was "One Tree Hill" which as you can see is once again "on the bubble". This year's winner will be announced on April 13.
