Sleepy Hollow is loosing in the ratings and you all know what that means. But Hold Fast Sleepyheads. Fandoms have saved shows before.
10 Fan Campaings That Worked
I really like the Chuck campaign myself. It showed the fandoms buying power and got the show a bigger sponsor in the process.
"With the NBC spy dramedy in danger of being canceled after its second season, fans launched a “Have a Heart, Renew Chuck” campaign, which ended up raising $17,000 for the American Heart Association on behalf of NBC. They also organized to buy sandwiches at Subway — one of the show’s main sponsors — the day of the season finale, dropping comment cards in support of “Chuck” while there. The chain signed on as a bigger sponsor, the network renewed the show, and it ran for five seasons."
Personally I’d like any campaign we run to be central to something between the two Witnesses though I’m not sure what.
Some people have suggested an alliance with other fandoms. I’m still not feeling superwholock, but there are Supernatural fans that probably aren’t feeling Superwholock either, and alliance with Superwholock is natural given some of the similarities between the two shows. The Fannibals have also rejected superwholock and also need more viewers to keep their show going perhaps an alliance based on mutual need. I know Hannibal is the opposite of diverse, but its a good show, and also a horror show so we might come together and strengthen both our fanbases in the process.
Something else to consider is that a number of these shows went from networks to cable or became online shows. Personally I’d like to keep SH on a major network, but keeping it being produced works well for me.
My first thought that our campaign whatever it is should be called Hold Fast Fox!, but we’ll see. Let’s brainstorm some ideas Sleepyheads and save our show.
