How Can Fans Help Save ‘Dallas’? Here Are Three Tips

Keep on trucking, Bob

“Dallas” fans are eager to support the behind-the-scenes efforts to rescue the series after TNT canceled it last month. What can we do? Here are three recommendations:

• Keep sharing #SaveDallas messages on social media. This is the area where we’ve made our biggest mark, so let’s keep the momentum going. We’ve sent 715,000 #SaveDallas tweets during the past month, according to social media research firm Topsy Labs Inc. If we hit 1 million tweets this week, we’ll provide the folks at Warner Bros. with a useful talking point to take into their discussions with network executives.

So keep those tweets coming, and if you can, please join the “tweet-a-thon” that fan Ryan Kwasneski is planning on Wednesday, November 5, from 7 to 9 p.m. Central time. Also, don’t forget to spread your #SaveDallas love on other social sites, including Facebook.

• Keep contacting The CW. Although The CW has been described as a long shot, it remains a contender to pick up the series. Other networks — including CBS, Reelz and WGN America — are no longer seen as viable options, so unless we hear otherwise, let’s make The CW our primary target. Here’s the contact information:

The CW Television Network

Address: 3300 West Olive Avenue, Burbank, CA 91505

Telephone: 818-977-2500

Email: feedback@CWTV.com

Online feedback: http://www.cwtv.com/feedback/comments

If you want to do something extra, consider this idea: “Dallas” fan Josh Eilberg is encouraging everyone to send bottles of barbecue sauce to The CW, hoping to emulate the success of the fans who helped save “Jericho” by mailing tons of peanuts to CBS. For details on the barbecue sauce campaign, check out Tom Tagliente’s blog post.

• Keep contacting Warner Bros. The studio that produces “Dallas” is leading the behind-the-scenes efforts to find a new home for the show. To help ensure the Warner Bros. executives continue fighting for “Dallas,” let’s keep sending them our encouragement. Here’s the contact information:

Warner Bros. Television Group

Address: 4000 Warner Boulevard, Burbank, CA 91522

Telephone: 818-954-6000

Make no mistake, fellow fans: The fight to save “Dallas” has entered a crucial phase, as Patrick Duffy tweeted earlier this week. This remains an uphill battle, so let’s continue to give it everything we’ve got.

      I love that show. I couldn’t wait to watch it once a week. Now I know why it has not bend on. Please put Dallas back on.

  2. I just emailed The CW this. I’m hoping and praying we get through to them.

    Hi,

    My name is Clarissa and I’ve been a Fan of the CW since the One Tree Hill days. I watched that show every week without fail. I am writing you in regards to the TV show Dallas. Dallas has been around since the late seventies and starred the late iconic Larry Hagman as J.R. Ewing. When the show went off the air in the early 90’s, it was time in my opinion. But later on they brought it back on TNT, the new generation, featuring JR and Sue Ellen’s handsome womanizing son, John Ross Ewing, Bobby’s son Christopher, Cliff’s beautiful daughter a Pamela, Bobby’s wife Ann, etc…. This is a family show.. A dysfunctional family show, one I think would be great for your network! Please considerate it.

    Regards,

    Clarissa

  4. If CW is a long shot then which channel is a more likely candidate?

  5. I think Dallas would be a great fit for The CW network, it has a established brand name known around the world and it has a unique demographic of viewers that stretches across multi-generations. The CW network has many of my favorite programs such as Arrow, The Flash, Vampire Diaries that I watch faithfully.. Having Dallas on CW would make it my favorite network to watch.

    I’ve been doing all this except phone calling since I’m hearing impaired and sometimes it is hard for me to hear on the phone so contacting CW and WB in other ways is easier for me. 🙂 I mailed my BBQ sauce Money and two letters: one to CW and one to Warner Brothers Televsision Group. Please share this event as it I think it is an excellent way to help our #SaveDallas campaign!! https://www.facebook.com/events/1531644667080497/
