Change “The Game” Campaign


As rumors that CW’s “THE GAME” will not be renewed for a fourth year spread across the blogosphere, its cast fights against the threat of cancellation with their “Change ‘The Game’ Campaign. On April 15, Mara Brock Akil, African American writer of the recently canceled “Girlfriends,”  is  proposing a format switch from a half hour sitcom to a hour long dramedy in hopes to save the show.

Sign the Petition to Keep “THE GAME” On Air orLeave a message on “THE GAME” Message Board wrote the following concerning The CW & “The Game:

In its first season, The Game averaged 2.3 million viewers each week. For season two, the ratings dropped to 2.07 million and a .96 rating in the 18-49 demographic. This season, CW execs have stranded the series in a little-watched Friday night timeslot. It’s fallen to an average of 1.68 million viewers and a tiny 0.7 rating in the demo.

Along with fellow sitcom Everybody Hates Chris, The Game hasn’t exactly been a ratings powerhouse. It looks very likely that Chris will be canceled in May but will have 88 episodes, enough for a syndication run that’s scheduled to start on Nick at Nite this Fall. In contrast, The Game will only have 64 episodes.
