Because of Episodes Like Chuck vs. The Honeymooners. That’s Why
Oh, of course you liked it. You’re a romantic, right?
Tell me, please. What do you think of this?
The Spring season has always brought a bit of panic to fans of Bartowski & co: the show just barely squeaked by into season three last year, thanks to an extensive viral fan campaign and more than a few Subway sandwiches.
And from the comments there:
I work for NBC and we love CHUCK. We want to bring it back. Just give us an excuse. Support the show.
If I may address the commenter, I can give you several million, one for every fan who watches the show, Ms. J22134. We’re not exactly your usual fans. We’re articulate shnooks, to say the least, and we’ve demonstrated (and will continue to demonstrate) that we support the show’s sponsors. We’ve been called the most engaged group of fans in television, BY THE SPONSOR. It’s a well deserved rep.
And that’s only the obvious part. As you can tell from the number of times we’ve sent Chuck and its cast members to the top of fan-polls, the number of posts written to the NBC boards and even the number of comments here in this blog, the numbers of viewers alone do not begin to tell the story of our energy and commitment. NBC should know this because every day we show again that we are more than passive watchers, and this is not what a normal fan would do.
I can tell you from experience, Ms. J22134, that the show’s demo skews a little older than you like. But this means that we’re not the kids who are easily manipulated. We are often their parents. When we spend, we spend intelligently, sometimes wisely and always in our family’s interest. Quality entertainment is in our family’s interest. Rare shows like Chuck, shows that speak to our own experiences and passions are in our interest and we are loyal to them, loyal to a fault. Your network can sell that to your advertisers because we can be a formidable economic ally.
Do you need more reasons? I have one more. Speaking frankly, we no longer need to watch shows that offer us less. Chuck has set the bar that high. When it comes down to it, You – you need us. Please give us a reason to stay with NBC.
Oh boy! Got carried away there for a second. But it felt good.
