My Generation: Petition to Save the ABC TV Show from Being Cancelled

My GenerationsWhen we’re young, we have high hopes about where life will take us. Network execs feel the same way about their new shows. My Generations certainly isn’t living up to expectations though. It’s gotten some terrible ratings and will surely be cancelled.

What can you do? Remember, the ideal scenario for ABC is for many millions of people to watch the show on their television sets, while it’s being broadcast. Unfortunately, ratings are put together based on a sampling of viewers. If you’re a “Nielsen household,” your viewing is being counted. If not, it’s not.

However, if you like My Generation and want to see it continue, there are a few things you can do to help.

  1. If you’re a Nielsen family, watch the show whenever it’s on. If not, watch it on or purchase episodes online so your viewing will be directly counted. Encourage others to watch the show. You might know a Nielsen family and not be aware of it.
  1. Talk about the show with others; at school, at work, online, or wherever. Creating a buzz about a show that you’re invested in gets other people interested and might help bring former viewers back.
  1. Sign the petition below and encourage others to do the same.
  1. Write to the network. Be respectful. Everyone responds better to courtesy. Tell them how much you enjoy the show, that you’ve signed the petition, and that you want to see it continue. You can use this form or, even better, write via “snail-mail” to: Mr. Paul Lee, President, ABC, 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521, RE: My Generation
  1. Call the network at (818) 460-7477 and leave a comment. Be polite and tell them how much you like the show.
  1. Take note of the products that are advertised during the show. Write the advertisers and tell them that you appreciate their sponsoring the show and that you buy their products (if you do).

To ABC, ABC Studios, and Stockholm-Copenhagen Productions:

We, the undersigned, enjoy watching My Generation on the ABC network. It has a diverse bunch of characters and storylines that you can relate to.

Please find a way to keep My Generation on the air. We are devoted viewers who will continue to watch the program, encourage others to do the same, and will support the series’ advertisers as well. Please keep it going, either on ABC or, if necessary, on another Disney-owned channel.

Thank you for your consideration.

    I love this show! It makes me think that if I really want something in my life, I really need to fight for it! And it's impossible not to love Anders and Brenda's story! Can you please bring it back?

    I just stumbled on this show on the internet and now I am hooked. It sucks to be cancelled it reminded me of good tv like it could get a good cult following. The acting was excellent and very true to life, the characters were developed, the premise is so interesting it can go in a million directions and not get old, and over all the show was quality. Once you sit in on it and catch the point your hooked. Give people a chance to watch good programming. This show was different. I hope it comes back

    i miss this show, my boyfriend is serving in the army too, and this show made me have something to watch, to take my mind off my boyfriend leaving. Stop canceling shows just because the ABC people don't like it, the people love this show i know i do.

    I had high hopes for this show and world love to see how things played out! Renewing the show would be great, but at least please finish airing the episodes that have already finished shooting. ABC has many about airing the show on one of them. People of my age group need a voice and show that doesn't fall into one of two overused boxes: the medical romance/drama and the quirky courtroom dramedy. Please give this show a longer chance with viewers. You may be pleasantly surprised!

    I absolutely love this show. Of all the crap that is on TV these days and they go and cancel this!!! I had an alarm set on my phone to tell me when this came on and then it just stopped. I have loved all the episodes that are available online and need MORE!! I don't understand why you stopped it!
  • NicolaCountry: USA2011-03-01 13:11:28

    I Love this show. I was hooked.! It was already one of my favorite shows. At least bring it back to the abc website and show seasons like you did with the show My So Called Life

    My husband and I absolutely LOVED My Generation. I can't believe some of the stupid shows out their (including the so-called reality TV shows) that are still on TV but not this show. And we were teased with commercials for the next weeks episode which never came. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring this show back. It is a breath of fresh air. I haven't seen a show like it at all and it really makes you laugh and has some poignant moments, too. It is a real shame that whatever corporate, money reasons are the driving force behind taking this quality show off the air. Believe me, other networks are going to gobble up your actors for being so stupid. PLEASE bring the show back. Thanks, Sara Cooper The Woodlands, Tx

    I was following My Generation online since I'm a college student and could not watch when it aired. But for a girl who doesn't follow a single series right now, I was hooked on My Generation. I wanted to know what happened next, what happened in the past, why relationships had become what they had become. It was real life problems affecting real people. I attend The University of Texas at Austin and seeing clips of where I live was an extra little reason to watch the show. Episode 8 also didn't provide any closure--do Anders and Brenda finally end up together? How will Rolly adjust to fatherhood? How will Kenneth deal with Dawn moving out?, etc. There are too many unanswered questions left, that need to be answered. Please bring this show back. It's more real than a lot of other over-dramatized crap that is on TV these days. It's even more real than "reality" TV.
