“Roswell” The End Well?
By Lynette Rice

Want to persuade a network to renew a show? Try condiments. Rabid fans of Roswell have barraged The WB with bottles of Tabasco sauce (the series� alien kids can�t get enough of the stuff) in an attempt to keep the freshman alive. A save-the-show campaign (via e-mail) has also been launched for Felicity. Both shows could use the help: After a rosy start, Roswell faltered because producers couldn�t decide whether it was a love story or science fiction; and after a bang-up first season, Felicity lost viewers when it moved to Sunday nights. So they�ll remain on the renewal bubble, unless they show promise in their new time slots (Roswell moved to 9p.m. Mondays and Felicity to 9p.m. Wednesdays). �The shows are in question because of ratings,� admits exec VP of programming Jordan Levin. �We want to bring them back. But we also want to make a case to advertisers that these shows are growing, not declining.� Perhaps fans should forgo Tobasco for a little Miracle-Gro.
