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

#SaveDallas, Bobby Ewing, Dallas, Patrick Duffy, Save Dallas

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

Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/TheCW

Twitter: @CW_network

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.

Ain’t over yet

The fight to save “Dallas” isn’t over. Rescuing the series from cancellation remains an uphill battle, but there’s still a chance another network will give the show a new home — and there are still things fans can do to show their support.

Here are my recommendations:

• Encourage The CW to save “Dallas.” The CW might be a long shot to pick up the series, but that doesn’t mean we should stop lobbying the network. 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’re not sure what to say when you contact The CW, you might get some ideas by reading the memo I penned to the network’s president last week.

Also: Some “Dallas” fans are planning a CW-themed “tweet-a-thon” on Wednesday, October 29, at 9 p.m. Eastern. If you’re on Twitter, please participate and tweet #SaveDallas messages to the network.

• Encourage Warner Bros. to keep fighting for the show. Warner Bros., the studio that produces “Dallas,” is leading the charge to find the series a new home. It’s important the Warner Bros. executives know how much we appreciate their efforts. Here’s the contact information for the studio’s television division:

Warner Bros. Television Group

Address: 4000 Warner Boulevard, Burbank, CA 91522

Telephone: 818-954-6000

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/warnerbrostv

Twitter: @warnerbrostv

If you need help composing messages to Warner Bros., check out the suggestions I shared last week.

• Keep spreading the word on social media. It’s a good idea to target The CW and Warner Bros., but it can’t hurt to share some general love for “Dallas” on social media too.

Fans have sent 570,000 #SaveDallas tweets during the past month, the “Help Save Dallas” petition has 81,000 signatures, and the Dallas: Get the Ewings a New Network Facebook page boasts 13,000 “likes.” Keep it up. Every tweet, like and signature is another expression of support for our favorite show.

I know this is a tough time, everyone. We’ve been fighting hard for almost a month and it’s difficult to know how much progress we’re making. Please don’t give up.

“Dallas” has given all of us so much enjoyment over the years; as long as there’s a chance the show can continue, we owe it to the cast, the crew and our fellow fans to keep fighting for them.

Tell TNT to Save ‘Dallas’!

#SaveDallas, J.R. Ewing, Larry Hagman, Save Dallas, TNT

Everyone deserves a second chance

Updates (Oct. 27, 2:35 p.m. and 6:40 p.m.): This morning, I posted the following report, which states TNT might reverse its cancellation of “Dallas.” By the afternoon, TNT was telling fans it won’t reconsider its decision to drop the series. For now, I encourage everyone to remain positive and to keep showing their love for “Dallas” on social media.

The rumors are true: TNT might reverse its cancellation of “Dallas,” Dallas Decoder has confirmed. Fans should contact TNT today and urge the network to save the series.

Warner Bros., the studio that produces “Dallas,” has held discussions with other networks, but for a variety of reasons, these efforts haven’t panned out. There’s still an outside chance the show could find a new home on The CW, but for now, fans are strongly encouraged to focus their efforts on TNT.

An important note: When contacting TNT, please be polite and positive. Many fans are understandably upset the network canceled “Dallas” in the first place, but what matters now is urging TNT to give the show another chance.

Here’s the contact information:

TNT

Address: 1050 Techwood Drive NW, Atlanta, GA, 30318

Telephone: 404-827-1700 (main), 404-885-4538 (viewer comments)

Email: info@tnt.tv

Twitter: @tntdrama, @TNTPR

Facebook: www.facebook.com/TNTDrama

Write, call, tweet. Unleash the full force of your passions. If you want to go straight to the top, you can also email the executives in charge of Turner Broadcasting System, TNT’s parent company: David Levy, president, david.levy@turner.com, and John Martin, chairman and chief executive officer, john.martin@turner.com.

There’s no overstating how important this is, fellow fans. If we want to rescue our show, this might be our last, best shot. Let’s come together like never before and show TNT why “Dallas” must be saved.

#SaveDallas: Stay Focused, Fellow Fans

Stay focused, y'all

Stay focused, y’all

“Dallas” fans are reading lots of rumors about the show’s future this weekend, including unconfirmed reports TNT might consider reversing its cancellation.

I encourage everyone to focus on the most credible sources of information, such as the Twitter feeds of the “Dallas” actors and other people associated with the show. If I’m able to nail down something, I’ll share it on Dallas Decoder and social media.

Until the facts become known, if you wish to contact TNT and encourage the network to give “Dallas” another chance, please do so. I don’t think it can hurt, especially if everyone is polite. Most importantly, please continue sending encouragement to Warner Bros., which owns and produces “Dallas.” The studio is trying to keep the show on the air, and the executives need to know we stand behind them.

No matter how this turns out, “Dallas” fans should feel proud. We’ve sent more than 495,000 #SaveDallas tweets during the past month and added more than 80,000 signatures to the “Help Save Dallas” petition. Let’s keep up the good work and continue fighting for the show we all love.

Here’s Why The CW Should Save ‘Dallas’

#SaveDallas, Josh Bobby Ewing, Dallas, John Ross Ewing, Josh Henderson, Patrick Duffy, Save Dallas

Hunks and heroes

MEMORANDUM

To: Mark Pedowitz, president, The CW Television Network

From: Dallas Decoder

Re: #SaveDallas

First, congratulations. The CW is off to a solid start this season: “The Flash’s” debut was your network’s most-watched series premiere since 2009, “Supernatural” — now in its 10th year (!) — is experiencing a ratings resurgence, and “Jane the Virgin” is one of the season’s most critically acclaimed new shows. You have a lot to be proud of.

You can add another feather to your cap by saving “Dallas.”

Perhaps you’ve heard about the fan-driven campaign to rescue the beloved series, which was recently dropped by TNT after three seasons. We’ve sent more than 400,000 #SaveDallas tweets since October 4 and added almost 80,000 signatures to an online petition to find the show a new home. We’re a passionate, loyal bunch.

That’s why “Dallas” would be an excellent fit at your network, which specializes in airing shows that keep audiences tuning in, week after week. You said it best earlier this year when you were asked what viewers look for when they tune into The CW. Your response: “Interesting characters in serialized form.”

Well, my goodness, Mr. Pedowitz, “Dallas” ought to be right up your alley! This show has fascinating characters to spare, and it helped pioneer the concept of continuing storylines in prime time.

Make no mistake: “Dallas” would slide easily into The CW’s lineup. Josh Henderson is just as hunky as the guys on “Supernatural” and “The Vampire Diaries”; Linda Gray delivers Emmy-worthy performances as Sue Ellen Ewing, the most complex woman on television; and even though he doesn’t wear tights, Patrick Duffy’s Bobby Ewing is every bit as heroic as Arrow and the Flash. (He’s just as cool too.)

Yes, the “Dallas” franchise has been around awhile, which means its audience tends to be a little older than the typical CW viewer. But you know what? That’s one of the show’s greatest strengths — something I bet you’d be the first to acknowledge. After all, you’ve talked about your network’s need to expand its audience, which is why you added “Jane the Virgin” to your lineup this season. As you told the Los Angeles Times, “We’re still a broadcaster, so it’s important for us to mix it up.”

Let’s be clear, Mr. Pedowitz: Fans aren’t asking you to save “Dallas” out of the goodness of your heart. Television is a business, although ratings aren’t the only measure of success, are they? The Hollywood Reporter recently pointed out how you’ve stood behind “Beauty and the Beast” for a variety of reasons, including that show’s large international following and the fact that it makes a lot of money for the CW’s parent companies. (Would this be a good time to mention “Dallas” has a huge global fan base and is produced by Warner Bros., one of The CW’s owners?)

Toward that end, I’ve been asking “Dallas” fans to contact Warner Bros. and encourage the studio’s executives to keep trying to find “Dallas” a new home. Right now, nothing is more important than letting the studio know how much we love “Dallas” and want the show to go on.

But if fans want to do something a little extra, it wouldn’t be a bad idea if they sent some #SaveDallas love your way:

I hope you don’t mind when you start receiving our tweets, calls and letters, Mr. Pedowitz. Look at it this way: If your network saves “Dallas,” the biggest hero at The CW won’t be Arrow or the Flash — it’ll be you.

Stand with the Ewings

“Dallas” fans have done a terrific job contacting various TV networks and urging them to rescue our beloved show from cancellation. Let’s not leave out Warner Bros., the studio that produces the show.

Remember: The Warner Bros. executives are leading the charge to find “Dallas” a new home. It’s important they know how much we appreciate their efforts and how eager we are to see the Ewing saga continue.

If you aren’t sure what to say when contacting Warner Bros., here are some ideas. These are guidelines; you should write (or speak) from the heart and let the studio know how much “Dallas” means to you.

If you tweet:

@warnerbrostv Thanks for your efforts to #SaveDallas! Please keep trying. I love the show and want to see the Ewing saga continue.

If you post a message on Facebook:

Thanks, Warner Bros., for your efforts to #SaveDallas! Please keep trying to find the show a new home. Millions of fans like me are eager to see the Ewing saga continue.

If you call:

Hello. My name is (insert your name here) and I’m calling to express my support for “Dallas.” I love the show and want to encourage Warner Bros. to keep trying to save it.

If you write a letter:

I’m writing to thank everyone at Warner Bros. who is trying to find “Dallas” a new home. Millions of fans like me appreciate your efforts. We love the show and are eager to see the Ewing saga continue, so please keep trying to save “Dallas!”

Sincerely,

If you have suggestions for other talking points, please share them in the comments section below. We can all benefit from each other’s ideas.

Additionally, when communicating on social media, please remember to use the #SaveDallas hashtag, which makes it easy to measure how many people are talking about our campaign. (By the way: More than 370,000 #SaveDallas tweets have been sent since the campaign began October 4, according to social media research firm Topsy Labs Inc.)

Keep in mind: The most effective tweets and posts come from fans who include heartfelt, passionate messages about how much they love “Dallas.” #SaveDallas champion @TeamSueEllen has additional tweeting tips here.

Also, if you know any “Dallas” fans who haven’t signed the “Help Save Dallas” petition, please encourage them to do so today. The petition boasts more than 78,000 signatures; let’s push it to 100,000 signatures or more.

Once again, thanks to everyone who is working so hard to save “Dallas.” This remains an uphill battle, but let’s keep giving it everything we can.

#SaveDallas: Let’s Target the Networks

Eyes on the prize

Eyes on the prize

“Dallas” fans sent more than 30,000 #SaveDallas tweets during a single hour last night, once again demonstrating the depth of the passion behind the campaign to save the recently canceled series.

The fan-organized “tweet-a-thon” began at 9 p.m. Eastern, “Dallas’s” time slot on TNT, and included encouraging messages from Mitch Pileggi, Kevin Page and other “Dallas” actors.

Fans also heard from someone who knows a thing or two about rescuing a TV show: William Shatner, who advised us to focus our efforts. In one tweet, he wrote, “[W]hy isn’t WB, CBS or other networks being targeted with fan love? Trending is a nice idea but only gets you so far.”

Shatner makes an excellent point. That’s why I encourage my fellow fans to follow his advice and focus on contacting CBS, CMT, Reelz and WGN America — the four broadcast and cable networks that have been cited as potential new homes for the series:

• CBS: Here’s CBS Corporation’s online contact page, which includes a telephone number, mailing address and more. The Twitter handle is @CBSTweet.

• CMT: The network doesn’t have an contact page, but you can post messages to CMT’s Facebook page, and the Twitter handle is @CMT.

• Reelz: Here’s the contact page. You can also post messages on the network’s Facebook page and send tweets to @ReelzChannel.

• WGN America: Here’s the network’s contact page. The Twitter handle is @WGNAmerica.

If there are other networks you feel should consider airing “Dallas,” by all means, contact them. Keep your messages positive; we want to make a good impression.

I also urge fans to keep sending positive tweets to Warner Bros., the studio that produces “Dallas.” It’s important the Warner Bros. executives know how eager fans are to see “Dallas” continue.

Also, if you know a fan who hasn’t signed the “Help Save Dallas” petition, please encourage them to do so immediately. An additional 3,000 fans signed yesterday, putting the total number of signatures at more than 75,000. This is impressive, but as I wrote yesterday, our goal should be getting 100,000 signatures on the petition in the coming days.

We’ve made a lot of progress during the past week, but we can’t give up now. Let’s keep fighting for the show we all love.

CBS, Here’s Your Chance to Save ‘Dallas’

#SaveDallas, CBS, Dallas, Larry Hagman, Les Moonves, Leslie Moonves, Save Dallas

Wheeler dealers (Associated Press)

MEMORANDUM

To: Leslie Moonves, president and chief executive officer, CBS Corporation

From: Dallas Decoder

Re: #SaveDallas

Mr. Moonves, have I got a deal for you.

You know better than anyone how hard fans are fighting to save “Dallas” after TNT canceled the show last week. There’s an online petition calling on CBS to pick up the series, and Linda Gray tells Dallas Decoder that when she ran into you a few days ago, you told her you’ve been inundated with emails from “Dallas” diehards pleading with you to bring the show home to CBS. (Sorry about clogging your inbox, sir. “Dallas” fans are a passionate bunch.)

Most tantalizing of all, there are unconfirmed reports that CBS is interested in hearing a pitch from the show’s producers. If these stories aren’t true, they should be. After all, nothing would make more sense from a business perspective — and nothing would be more poetic — than having CBS ride to “Dallas’s” rescue.

For starters, “Dallas” comes with a fan base that has stuck with it for more than three decades. We watched the original show on CBS in the 1970s and 1980s, we watched CBS’s reunion movies and specials in the 1990s and early 2000s, and we watched all three seasons of the TNT sequel. We’re nothing if not loyal.

Not all of us are old-timers either. “Dallas” has always bridged the generation gap. I started watching when I was a kid, sitting on the living room floor while Mom and Dad watched from their easy chairs. Now I’m a grown-up and I’m still watching — and so are younger viewers like my niece, a new “Dallas” devotee who thinks Josh Henderson, a.k.a. John Ross Ewing III, is a dreamboat.

This is why “Dallas” is an ideal fit for CBS, the only network that still believes in broadcasting. You and your executive team have a gift for delivering shows that everyone enjoys, from “The Big Bang Theory” to “Big Brother.” Imagine how easily “Dallas” would slide into your Friday lineup, where it would join “Blue Bloods,” another multigenerational family drama, and the “Hawaii Five-0” revival. It would be smart scheduling and a lovely nod to “Dallas’s” glory days, when the original show ruled Friday nights.

Yes, I know television has changed a lot since then. Families don’t gather in the warm glow of a living room TV set the way mine did when I was growing up. But “Dallas” still has the power to bring people together — look at how fans have united since the #SaveDallas campaign began — and viewers will always want to watch great drama, whether it’s on TV, a tablet or a device that fits in your pocket.

Besides, the Ewings never go out of style. I realize “Dallas’s” ratings on TNT haven’t always reflected that, especially toward the end of the show’s run. But you’ve got to wonder: What kind of numbers did TNT expect? When “Dallas” wasn’t airing on holidays, it was forced to compete with the Emmys and “Monday Night Football.” To make matters worse, the network scheduled the season finale on the first night of the new season, when “Dallas” was forced to go head-to-head with multiple premieres — including the debut of CBS’s newest hit, “Scorpion.” (Congrats on another blockbuster, by the way.)

But this isn’t just about numbers, Mr. Moonves. This is about tradition too. When the original “Dallas” came along in the 1970s, CBS was getting clobbered in the ratings by ABC, which was riding high with “Happy Days,” “Laverne & Shirley” and “Charlie’s Angels.” Then J.R. got shot and “Dallas” zoomed to the top of the Nielsens, taking the rest of CBS with it. Today, the original “Dallas” is remembered as one of the greatest successes in the network’s history, along with “I Love Lucy,” “All in the Family,” “60 Minutes” and “Survivor.”

There’s a personal connection here too, Mr. Moonves. You made your mark in television as a young executive at Lorimar, the storied studio that produced “Dallas,” along with “Knots Landing” and “Falcon Crest.” You arrived around the time Bobby Ewing stepped out of the shower and gave “Dallas” a new lease on life. That’s exactly what we need right now — a fresh start.

Check out the picture I’ve attached to this memo. It shows you and Larry Hagman at a party for TV critics in 1997. I love the expression on his face — I wonder what joke he’s cracking here? — but I also love the expression on yours. You look like you admire Mr. Hagman as much as “Dallas” fans do. Imagine how proud he’d be if you saved “Dallas,” a franchise that meant so much to him.

Look, Mr. Moonves, I don’t mean to get too sentimental here. J.R. Ewing didn’t become a successful oil baron by letting his emotions rule his decision-making, and I suspect you didn’t become the most powerful person in television by doing the same. I also realize the odds of a broadcast network picking up a discarded cable series are pretty long. But this show is special, for all the reasons I just pointed out.

“Dallas” once saved CBS. Here’s your chance to return the favor.

Why do you think CBS should save “Dallas”? Share your ideas below and check out Dallas Decoder’s Save Dallas Page for links to news coverage, petitions, other fan sites and more.

#SaveDallas: Let’s Kick It Up a Notch, Fellow Fans

#SaveDallas, Bobby Ewing, Dallas, John Ross Ewing, Josh Henderson, Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy, Sue Ellen Ewing, Save Dallas, TNT

Never back down

We need to make more noise, fellow “Dallas” fans.

The campaign to save our favorite show from cancellation is off to a strong start. We’re signing petitions, liking Facebook pages and tweeting our love using the #SaveDallas hashtag.

Our collective efforts have earned attention from across the media spectrum, including a brief report in the New York Times and an endorsement from Michael Strahan, Kelly Ripa’s co-host on “Live with Kelly and Michael.”

We’ve also received support from the cast, including Linda Gray, who encouraged everyone to “keep fighting” in an interview yesterday; Patrick Duffy, who urged fans to “keep going” via a tweet; and Josh Henderson, whose Facebook page includes several #SaveDallas posts.

Let’s keep the momentum going. We need more petition signatures, more attention from the press and more social media posts declaring our love for “Dallas.” Here’s what I recommend:

• Urge more fans to sign the petition. There are several petitions going at this point, but the “Help Save Dallas TNT” petition has gained the most traction. It has more than 67,000 signatures, which is impressive, but it’s still a fraction of the show’s weekly audience. If you know fans who haven’t signed the petition yet, encourage them to do so.

• Contact the entertainment industry publications. The press coverage for #SaveDallas has been terrific, but we also need to get the attention of the industry news publications and sites that television executives read every day. Let’s send them positive messages and politely ask them to report on fans’ efforts:

  • Deadline Hollywood. The Twitter handle for this site’s TV team is @DeadlineTV.
  • The Hollywood Reporter. Here’s the publication’s contact page. The Twitter handle is @thr.
  • Variety. Here’s the publication’s contact page. The Twitter handle is @Variety.
  • The Wrap. Here’s the site’s contact page. The Twitter handle is @thewrap.

• Share your love on social media. Please keep sending messages via Facebook and Twitter using the #SaveDallas hashtag, which makes it easy for TV execs and the press to search for and find our tweets. Also, remember to tweet @warnerbrostv and encourage Warner Bros., the studio that produces “Dallas,” to find a new home for the show. The Warner Bros. folks hopefully want to save “Dallas” too, so send them positive messages.

Many other cool ideas are percolating, including proposals for rallies, “tweet-a-thons” and a “stream-a-thon” where everyone chooses a designated time and watches “Dallas” via video on demand to demonstrate the potential audience for the show on Netflix and similar outlets. Hopefully these ideas will continue to take shape.

Thanks to everyone who is fighting so hard to save “Dallas.” Your passion and creativity are inspiring. Let’s keep up the good work and build on our success!
