The weekly Journeyman streaming event continues!

Thanks Serulous for this info:

The streaming events have been really gaining steam! Monday is our third streaming event. Pass it onto other Journeyman fan you know!! The last two Mondays, traffic was up noticeably at nbc.com. There are some really quick things you can do to make the streaming events even more effective. Send the execs a quick email, click the ads while you stream and contact the advertisers during the week. If you find advertiser contact info post it here: http://savejourneyman.net/forums/index.php/topic,5.0.html. Also post there which advertisers you saw during your stream. More details below.
Monday's (1/21) Streaming Event, Episode 3: Game Three:

-Stream Journeyman episode #3, "Friendly Skies," on Monday (1/21) on NBC.com. By request, we've added a Pacific time to stream as well. So stream at 10 p.m. EST(Journeyman's regular time-slot). and/or 10 p.m. PST (regular time for the network folks out in LA).
-If you can't make it at 10 p.m., then stream at another time on 1/21.
-Spread the word. Email other Journeyman fans. Post this info on other boards. Watch it with someone who hasn't seen the show before if you can.
-Send a quick email to the execs that you watched the show. Get creative with subject lines for emails so the emails get around filtering. As always be polite. Great example of an email sent last week below.

Jack Abernathy CEO FOX jack.abernathy@fox.com
President and Chief Executive Officer of FX Networks: peter.ligouri@fox.com
Entertainment President at FOX kevin.reilly@fox.com
Jeff Zucker CEO NBC jeff.zucker@nbcuni.com

-Let the advertisers know we're watching. They pay the bills at NBC, so it's good to let them know. Easy way? Click on the ads when you stream. A few minutes of time during the week? Send an email or call the advertisers.
-Enjoy the episode! Shouldn't be hard - it's a great episode. Comment on http://savejourneyman.net/forums/ on nbc.com afterwards.

As usual, feel free to post this on other sites, facebook groups, myspace pages, blogs, livejournal, gardening sites (just checking if people are paying attention on that last one but most sites do have a general interest section).
Here's a quote of a letter one poster emailed to the execs after the last streaming event:
Quote from: kevbo65 on January 15, 2008, 11:46:00 AMI just sent the following note to the gentlemen listed at Fox and NBC...

Subject line: Great show last night!!!

I rewatched the 2nd episode of Journeyman last night on the website at the time that it used to be on the television. This is one great show! It looks like I will become a regular viewer of this show on the web as it is excellently written and the acting is top notch...

Update and Journeyman Download Monday

Hey gang, I'm still alive. Couple quick bits:

1) Don't give up. Of course NBC is going to sound "down" on Journeyman every opportunity they can get. They're tired of the calls, letters, and hundreds of boxes of Rice-A-Roni they're getting, and it makes them look bad. They don't want to admit they're in any way responsible for the fact that a great show failed. They'd prefer it just went away quietly. Well, for now, we have to make sure it doesn't.

2) Monday, January 7th, go to NBC.com and view the pilot episode ("Love of a Lifetime") online at 10pm eastern time.


(you'll have to scroll all the way over to the right of the thumbnail icons for each episode)

3) I'll have some updates on the Rice-A-Roni donations and shipments soon.

Thanks and STAY TUNED. It's important at this time that we don't give up.
