Arrested Development Online Petition

I'm not sure if these things ever work, but at this point in Arrested Development's fate, it can't hurt. I know there are plenty of fans on here so sign away, get us a season 3 with the Bluth's.

I don't even watch the show regularly, but I signed it because I respect the show.

They really don't. If people think they do, it's coincidental.

Over 21000 signatures now. That's probably more people than watched the last episode.

I hope they just move it over to FX if the numbers aren't good enough for Fox. It certainly is the best comedy on TV right now.

So, they're counting backwards?

Sorry, I decided to stick a finger in my ear instead. It'll have the same effect, except now my ear is cleaner.

You want to make a difference? Online Petitions wont work for shit. They never will bother to look at it.

Here is what you do if you feel that you want to get something done:

Buy a t-shirt

Buy the DVD (saved Family Guy)
DVD Talk Amazon link to buy it

write in

I'll address this again. Having it on during sweeps would actually be more harm than good. Fox is already hurting on the ratings for this after much pushing with no real significant difference in a positive sense for the ratings. To have it also cost fox potential ad price from sweeps would be instant doom for it. It makes sense to take it off for that time period and put in something that is flash in the pan and high in the numbers. I do believe that it will be renewed because of the critical priase and the people behind the show alone. But the steps above are great ways of showing what the outdated nelson system isn't. An online petition will do nothing.

Online petitions don't do jack. The only kind of correspondence that the networks recognize is the old-school mailed letter.

I also don't think it will be cancelled. I am far more worried about one of its timeslot competitors, and one of my favorites: American Dreams.

Thanks Jack.

Checked out the apparel. They have a Banana Stand shirt. too bad it isn't pastel yellow like the show.

If you sign up for the fan club you get 10% off merchandise. Fan club enrollment is free. This would probably help more than any online petition.

Its damn funny, but better than Curb Your Enthusiasm? That's pushing it. Did you ever see the episode with Larry David at the Laker game where Shaq falls? I laughed so damn hard I fell off the bed.

I refuse to sign the petition because of something i read over at The-OP message boards (an arrested fansite)

"i urge you all to sign the petition. if you have signed it already, sign it again. i have signed it 20-something times already. do your part to save AD!"
That perfectly sums up why online petitions are 100% useless.
