Masters of Science Fiction - Keep it Alive!! sign now

Dear American Broadcasting Company,
Too often these days, the television viewer tunes in only to find the TV set filled with reality programming, game shows, and other such fare that provides little value to the viewer. Those shows that do rise above this malaise are often challenged by networks' need to have big ratings, bigger than their competitors, and often they are cut short all too quickly, without having any opportunity to build viewership.

Your competitor CBS recently showed a commitment to such a well-written and well-acted show, "Jericho", by extending its life into a second season, if only for a handful of episodes at present. The individuals signing this petition believe that, given its high quality, a similar opportunity should be afforded the "Masters of Science Fiction" anthology currently airing on your network.

ABC has given very little support to this program, keeping it off the airwaves for nearly a year and then deciding to broadcast only 4 of 6 completed episodes, showing those in arguably the graveyard of network timeslots, Saturday nights at 10 p.m. EST (in the middle of summer, no less). All this has been done despite positive reviews from numerous critics around the country, some of whom have also been opposed to the network's treatment of this show.

We ask, at the very least, that ABC consider airing all 6 completed episodes of "Masters of Science Fiction", with the possibility of additional episodes to be created at some point in the future. With the inevitable turnover in the fall schedule, it would seem very possible for ABC to schedule the 2 episodes not yet slated to air in a vacated weekday timeslot, which would allow for additional exposure and, most likely, higher ratings. We believe that this program can equal, if not surpass, the quality of earlier science-fiction anthologies like "The Twilight Zone" and "The Outer Limits", but it must first be given the opportunity to do so.
