It certainly doesn’t look good for ABC’s new Cupid series. Despite the devotion of some viewers, the series hasn’t been doing very well in the ratings department and very likely won’t be renewed for a second season. Who would have thought that this remake, starring Bobby Cannavale, Sarah Paulson, Rick Gomez, and Camille Guaty, wouldn’t outlast the 1998 original?
Would you like to see Cupid continue, or at the very least, get some sort of resolution for the series? If so, there are a few things that you can do to support the show.
Watch Cupid “live” on television and ask your friends/family to do the same — one might secretly be a Nielsen household. Viewers are the most important thing to the network, especially in the 18-49 demographic. With more viewers, they’re able to charge more for their advertising. If you can’t watch the show on TV, watch episodes online.
Sign the petition below. Pass the word around and encourage others to do the same.
Write to the network, either electronically or, preferably by regular mail (Mr. Stephen McPherson, President, ABC Entertainment Group, 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521, RE: Cupid). Be courteous and polite. Tell them why you enjoy the show and why would like to see it continue, or at the very least, be given a conclusion. Mention the products that you see advertised during the show and which ones that you like to buy.
If you’re really industrious, do some research and write to the advertisers directly. Tell them that you appreciate their help in making Cupid possible.
But hurry, time is running out. Unless something is done, this Cupid won’t outlast the short-lived, previous version!
To: ABC Studios, Sony Pictures Television, and ABC:
We, the undersigned, look forward to watching the Cupid TV show on ABC. The series has just the right amount of comedy and romance to keep us coming back for more. The scripts are well written and the castmembers are all wonderful and memorable in their roles. Is Trevor actually Cupid? We want to know.
We encourage you to find a way to keep Cupid on the air for another season, or at the very least, bring the series to a fitting conclusion. We are devoted viewers who will continue to watch the program, encourage others to do the same, and will support the advertisers as well. Please keep Cupid on ABC or consider moving it to another channel in the Disney family.
Thank you for your consideration.
