Cast your ballot to rescue a favorite show
By Gary Levin, USA TODAY
Shows on bubble could be headed for trouble
Vote now: Keepers or goners?
It’s time to make your voice heard. USA TODAY’s fourth annual Save Our Shows survey offers you a
chance to vote on which of 18 programs wavering between renewal and cancellation should return.
Last year’s poll drew responses from 12,667 viewers (most of them online), who weighed in with their
opinions of shows that are “on the bubble,” in network parlance.
Does your vote have an effect? Well, yes and no. Among last year’s respondents, 52% wanted ABC’s
Sports Night to return, but it was canceled anyway. (The drama lives on in reruns airing on Comedy Central.)
Sci-fi and fantasy fans also turned out to support their favorites: 47% voted to keep NBC’s The Pretender
and CBS’ Early Edition and Now and Again on the air, but all three were canceled.
WB’s Roswell drew 42% of the vote from fans who wanted the show to stay. Thanks to the outpouring of
support (along with mass mailings of Tabasco sauce, an alien delicacy), Roswell still lives, though it makes
a return appearance on this year’s ballot.
Also returning to the Save Our Shows ballot: the WB romance Jack & Jill and CBS’ long-running mystery
Half of this year’s ballot, though, is made up of rookie shows that haven’t yet found solid footing, including
high-profile star vehicles such as ABC’s Geena Davis Show and NBC’s The Fighting Fitzgeralds as well as
the much anticipated X-Files spinoff, Fox’s Lone Gunmen.
Beginning today, you can give us your opinion by voting at saveourshows.usatoday.com or writing us at Save
Our Shows, USA TODAY, 1000 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA 22229. Entries must be received by April 16.
Thanks to Jeni for this :)
Just wanted to let you know that there is a poll at USA Today with the link
It lists out all the shows they consider to be “on the bubble” and you can
vote to drop or keep each show. Roswell is listed dead last out of 18 so
lets all vote and show them how much we love our show!
Mid-May is when fans find out whether their favorite TV series return for
fall. But while we wait for word from the networks, tell us what you hope
happens to these shows hovering between renewal and cancellation. (Shows
that aren’t listed are already renewed, expected to return, as good as dead
or long gone). We’ll tally the votes and report the results in a future
issue of USA TODAY.
Thanks to Thicket668 for this :)
USA Today’s annual poll for which shows should stay and which should go is
now up at their site. Go here to vote to keep Roswell:

Let’s get those #’s high, everyone! Please spread the word about this as
much as possible! Roswell got 42% of the vote last year. We can do much
better than that this time!
Thanks to Kara for this :)
There was an article in the USA TODAY newspaper about Roswell.
For the last four years on usatoday.com, there was a save our shows survey, offering people a chance to vote on which 18 programs wavering between renewal and cancellation should return.
WB’s Roswell drew 42% of the vote from fans who wanted the show to stay. Thanks to the outpouring of support (along with mass mailings of Tabasco sauce , an alien delicacy), Roswell still lives, though it makes a return appearance on this year’s ballot.

goners” for the upcoming fall season. The link is:
