This petition will be sent to HBO offices when the total reaches 10,000 (originally it was to be October 2007). I will highlight sigs that threaten to drop HBO programming. You can also call HBO consumer affairs at 212-512-1208 and voice your concerns. By signing this petition, the viewing public is asking HBO programming to allow show creator David Milch to make a second season of the show John From Cincinnati on their network.

The ratings giant has begun beta testing an online social network to give passionate TV or film fans a forum to express their views — with the studios and networks listening in.
The service, dubbed Hey! Nielsen, will allow visitors to sound off on music and film in addition to TV. It will tabulate a popular vote of enthusiasts from which it will derive a “Hey! Nielsen Score,” designed to be a measure of buzz and audience engagement.
From their “About Us” page: “Hey! Nielsen is more than just a new idea in opinions and social networking: it’s a way for you to influence the TV and movies you watch, the music you listen to, and more… all while making a name for yourself. That’s right, Hey! Nielsen isn’t really “about us,” it’s about you. You’re the reason The Nielsen Company built this site and will continue to tweak and polish it based on your input.”

What Was Your Favorite Summer Series? Sure, my attention has turned mostly to fall TV these days, but I don’t want to forget some of the summer’s stellar series. It was a season loaded with strong new and returning fare, especially on cable, and while not all of my reasons to keep your TV on panned out into the classics I’d hoped for, there were still a lot of great shows out there. Which was your favorite?
The first pages says, “Welcome to HBO’s online survey regarding the HBO Original Series, “JOHN FROM CINCINNATI.” The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete.

Where Did “John From Cincinnati” Go?
That is the burning question on the minds of countless fans of HBO’s most recent original television series, created by legendary television writer, David Milch, and his creative partner, author Kem Nunn, entitled “John From Cincinnati”. Ask any of the series’ fans, and they will tell you that it was far more than a television show for them. You will hear that this “experience” touched and moved them on an extraordinary personal level, like no other. You will hear them tell you that there is a profound message within “John From Cincinnati”. A message of faith, love, hope and redemption for humanity, for all of us, as a species. You may be surprised and bewildered to comprehend that HBO has created and presented a story of such vast human potential. Exactly when did the Home Box Office network become a beacon of light for us all?
