October Road fans forge foward with Letter Campaign

The fans of October Road have been so distraught over the cancellation of their show, despite efforts by their Pay October Road Forward campaign that they have yet organized another campaign in addition to the current one running to get noticed by the top people at ABC.

On June 10th, ABC can expect to receive thousands upon thousands of letters and postcards to their offices in Burbank, specifically to Stephen McPherson and Anne Sweeney, the top people at Disney-ABC Entertainment to plead their case yet again to revive this show that was given the "death slot" of Monday night where no advertising was to be found and so the ratings proved less than what ABC wanted. Many would say that it was like having a party but not sending invites, then you are disappointed that no one showed up. Why June 10th many ask, well, it is to mark exactly 3 months from the time the last episode was shown. Even with it being 12 weeks since, the fan base continues to grow due to what fans call "ABC's new advertising" with the Pay October Road Forward campaign.

To find out more about this campaign, you can visit the boards at ABC.com to learn more.

Looks like these fans won't give up for the show they love. I guess this shows true dedication to their show and ABC.

This show is definately worth saving. It is original heartwarming, and it can make you laugh and cry all in the same episode. October Road leaves you with a good feeling at the end of each episode, and if I had to choose one show that should be on the air, October Road is that show.
