    I can't believe the mentality of Fox anymore.

    Remember when they were cutting edge??

    Now they just want us to eat the same old dribble the other networks are feeding us.

    This is truly sad.

    Perhaps this should be under a new thread, but I'm trying to gauge the interest in starting a petition to keep this show off the air!

    Well, what do you expect? They put it up against Friends and Survivor. Duh, gee, I wonder why it didn't do well. [​IMG]

    Signed. But I imagine that actual, real, touchable mail would have more of an effect than this ephemeral stuff. Anybody got an address? This show is too funny to let die.

    Pardon my ignorance, but how would a petition help? I presume the reason it was canceled was that not enough people were watching it. If all the 'not enough' viewers sign the petition, they will still be 'not enough'. Or is there actually an underground society of Family Guy viewers, that Nielsen is unaware of?

    Maybe with some luck someone like Comedy Central might pick it up. I can hope anyway.

    Noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Petition Signed

    Didn't the same thing happen about 2 years go with this show? I thought it was cancelled and enough people contacted fox, then it came back for the summer.

    If they need to cancel something cancel THe Chamber, or that 80's show not a show that is good.

    Its a shame that all some people want to do is start trouble.If you don't like the family guy,don't watch it!why bother people in this thread who want to save the show by signing the petition.there are pleanty of shows I don't like,and if they get cancelled,I don't care.But if anyone wants to save a show they love,let them try.
    comming into this thread and posting things about signing a petition to keep the show off the air makes you sound extremely childish and only serves to piss people off!I say grow up,get a life,and leave others alone.
    Thanks
