You can also help the show by buying the first seaon on DVD. DVD sales have brought other shows back from the dead. In stores, it's retailing for $54.99, but on Amazon, you can get it for $38.49.
People are also e-mailing talk show host, Ellen Degeneres, for help and support: http://ellen.warnerbros.com/funstuff/on
Those are all the avenues I've found so far, so please, start getting using your voice! So far, I've signed the petition, and left feedback for CBS. Here's what I said:
To Whom It May Concern: (If any of you can be bothered enough to be concerned about your viewers opinions.)
I have to say that I am appalled at your choice to cancel your hit, and I repeat, hit tv show, Joan of Arcadia, to replace it with some lame facsimile of a show I already watch on NBC called Medium.
Yes, this Ghost Whisper farce, is completely transparent, and what's worse, you get a B list "actress" like Jennifer Love Hewitt, that only a few preteens and infatuated guys guys like, to mimic a role played by a respectable, outstanding, A List actress like Patricia Arquette. It would be almost laughable if wasn't so sad, sickening, and just downright pathetic.
But back to my point, because I do have one. This is the show that you choose to replace a beautiful, profound show such as Joan of Arcadia.
Instead of having moving episodes, which I and my roomate never ever make it through without crying because it stirs the soul and it grips the heart with such an unbelievable passion, you are changed by each and every episode. You have to stop, and really think about whatever trial Joan was just put through, as though you yourself were put through it.
Joan of Arcadia made me realize that life is not as black and white as I too often allow myself to believe it is. It's a harsh world, and at 22, I've already hard life, and sometimes, you don't really see the colors. Just the black, and white.
But through this show, and it's phenomenal writing, and the acting of such incredibly talented actors, who breathe such amazing life into every word, every scene, I have seen a million shades of grey.
Amber Tamblyn, though not as well known as Jennifer Love Hewitt, is a hundred thousand times the actress your new Ghost Whisperer star could ever hope to be. And I would rather see her, being realiztic, and a true to talent actress than Ms. Hewitt in anything.
I mean, really, what exactly is this Ghost Whisperer going to entail? Jennifer running around in a bunch of skimping clothing trying to save the dead that are talking to her?
Guess what? Fox already did that. It was called Tru Calling, Eliza Dushku was infinitely hotter, and a much better actress, and it still got canceled, despite a huge fanbase, and massive campaign to bring it back.
You're already starting out with the chips stacked against you because all of the loyal Joan fans are starting campaigns against having anyone watch Ghost Whisperer, and this is just aside from the people who already dislike Jennifer Love Hewitt, in addition to the people who think it's just a cheap knock off of Medium, and won't watch it for that reason.
You may think that just becaue you control what shows go on and off, that you have the power. But you are sadly mistaken.
We have the power.
Right now, through journal communities, websites, petitions, and word of mouth, Joan's fanbase is working against you.
And if you want to see just how much power we have, how much strength there can be in the unison of many voices, then continue to challenge us.
We are sick of you, and your reality shows, your sitcomes, all of your inane shows with no respect to the demographics. But we tolerate them, as long as you at least give us what we want.
If you cancel Joan, and put on obtrusively silly shows like Ghost Whisperer, your network will suffer.
I am not the only one refusing to watch anything else on CBS, and there are others who have already disabled your channel. Also, without shows like Joan, and just a bunch of assinine shows, don't count on those DVD sales that bring you so much revenue.
You have made a mistake.
If you don't fix it, we will sink your network.
Your show raised such a wonderful question;
What if God was one of us?
He'd bring back Joan.
They raised the question: What if God was one of us?
They owe us another season to answer it.
