I have to say that these Save-a-Show campaigns are getting increasingly creative and...beneficent.
The latest such entry into the mix is the campaign launched to save Moonlight. The show, which returns to TV on April 25th with its final 4 new episodes for this season, has partnered with the Red Cross to get the show's supporters to donate their blood (and convince CBS to give the show a second season).
If you don't watch the show or know anything about it, Moonlight focuses on a vampire that works as a private investigator (basically, it's a less inventive Angel). Thus, the campaign is thematically relevant to say the least. There are already a reported 4000 people that have pledged to donate their blood. Furthermore, it is rumored that the show's star, Alex O'Loughlin, is very close to signing on as a spokesman for the Red Cross.
While I'm assuming that Jericho's peanuts, Journeyman's Rice-a-Roni and Friday Night Lights' footballs all went to various charities (we won't speak about Cavemen's hair), you can't disagree that this is the best idea yet (there are never enough people donating blood)! Furthermore, it might just help to save someone's favorite show...
