CW Nominated for Publicity Awards; Supernatural Fans Take Matters into Own Hands
We couldn't help but utter a bitter, resentful little laugh when we stumbled across this news item: The CW has been nominated for two ICG Publicists Awards, which honor excellence in publicity and promotion for motion pictures and television programs. The campaigns for Gossip Girl and Aliens in America are up for the TV publicity award.
We can't argue with the nominations: stories, billboards and posters for Gossip Girl and Aliens in America were everywhere, and the shows got plenty of (well deserved) buzz. But why not spread a little of that publicity love to some of the other shows? Supernatural and The Game come to mind immediately. Heck, Supernatural 's fans do so much more to promote the show than the network ever did, and it's getting kind of old. Step up, CW!
Speaking of Supernatural 's fans… We came across this petition calling for the network to air repeats of Supernatural instead of yanking it from the schedule once the new episodes are through. How many shows have fans beseeching a network -- any network -- to air reruns? That's dedication!
We'd love to hear about other Supernatural petitions and campaigns. Let us know about them in the comments!
