20 Times Fans Actually Saved TV Shows From Cancellation
We’ve got the fans and Subway to thank for rescuing this show. It was on the brink of cancellation because it got really low ratings by season two. But fans weren’t going to settle for this. They came together to launch a huge “Save Chuck” campaign, where they signed petitions and wrote letters. Even the restaurant chain, Subway, got involved in their efforts because they were briefly featured on the show. Tons of fans headed to Subway for foot-long sandwiches and gave the TV show all the credit. Even Zachary Levi, who starred as Chuck, played a part in the campaign.
In the end, NBC gave in and continued the series, which stayed on the air for five seasons.
