20 Times Fans Actually Saved TV Shows From Cancellation
Friday Night Lights
Though Friday Night Lights was a critical success and had a loyal fanbase, the show’s second season received low ratings and NBC considered canceling it for good. However, fans got creative and organized campaigns to help keep the show on air. For instance, one involved sending small footballs with the show’s popular catchphrase, “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” to NBC. And another involved sending light bulbs with “lights on” written on them.
Rather than renewing the series for their network, NBC agreed to partner with DirecTV and the show was brought back for three more seasons.
