Guys, I hate to sound like an asshole here, but by jumping on Fox, you
would be doing more harm than good at this point. Keep on hitting ABC if
ya want, but not Fox. The best tactic now, as decided by LYNCH/FROST,
and passed onto us at COOP (at least SOME of us) is to hit the sponsors.
Don't bitch to them about how ABC has done the show in. Be polite. Tell
them you watch the show religiously and that you appreciate their
support of the show. Tell them that you buy their product(s) BECAUSE of
their support. If you have switched from a competitor's product, tell
them the name of the competitor. This will carry more weight than you
could ever imagine!!! Most of their advertising dollar goes to TV, and
if they know that by supporting TP, they are getting loyal customers,
especially NEW customers......

Besides, by hitting a NETWORK, if they don't pick it up, we're screwed,
but by hitting the SPONSORS, no matter WHO picks up TP, the sponsors
will follow, and TP will be fully funded. There will be a time SOON when
we can hit a particular network, though I can't say right now WHICH one
or WHEN exactly.

Anyone still SERIOUSLY interested in EFFECTIVELY working to save TP can
e-mail me directly  mt1z+@andrew.cmu.edu     and I will give you ALL the
info you need.

Mike
