Less than a day later and the fans are firing back.
As of this posting, the Twitter account @EarlTwitition has nearly 9,000 followers and continues to grow. They are calling it a Twitition - aka a Twitter Petition. Merely following the account on Twitter shows your support for the series.
The Twitition is gaining some traction, as in addition to its 9,000 followers, Entertainment Weekely picked up the story.
There's even some rumblings that either Fox or TBS (if FOX passes) - who currently airs reruns of the show - might be interested in picking up the series for new episodes, so this isn't a hopeless cause!
While I stopped watching Earl a few seasons ago, I imagine it deserves to be on TV much more so than a whole lot of other stuff (or in the very least deserves a proper sendoff), so let's do what we can to help!
