Well, so far this season I've seen too many good shows come and go, forever to leave their story-lines hanging at cliff-hangers that will never be resolved. Also, all of us have had to deal with the horrific rash of un-inspired, cookie cutter copies, of crime drama's, medical drama's, teenage sing alongs, and scores and scores of other mediocre shows that never should have been put to film in the first place. It's time we tell the broadcasting mega-corporations that we're tired of the same old TV shows that numb our minds and mesmerize our children turning them into brain dead zombies or sluty teenage whores. Please help save the show "No Ordinary Family" by signing the petition that goes straight to ABC Studios. Here is the link to the petition:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/abc-dont-cancel-no-ordinary-family/

Being a huge supporter of comic books and comic book type characters in the media, I think this show truly deserves to be on the air. I've seen every episode of it and my wife and I look forward to watching it together every week. The drama in the show is good and not over the top. The acting is top notch and the show stars "Michael Chiklis" who is probably most famous for his portrayal of "The Thing" in Marvel comics "The Fantastic Four" and as "Detective Vic Mackey" from "The Shield". There aren't enough "good" super-hero shows out there. Please help in trying to keep this one on the air where it deserves to be!!!

Once signed the petition is re-sent by e-mail to the associate broadcasting director's e-mail. It is then shown to the board of directors in charge of renewal for the current ABC line-up. I've also done some research into the petition site its-self and it is a legitimate site that has used it's petitions to actually save things and do some good.

One example is a Ohio woman who was kept out of jail over her trying to save a orphaned baby faun. The woman saved the faun from starvation in the wild but was then told by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife that the faun had to be returned to the wild (presumably so that it could die a natural death by starvation). After the division of Wildlife was not able to intimidate the woman into doing this, they then started threatening her with 60 days jail time and a fine unless the fawn was handed over to them so that they can euthanize it and do post-mortem tests for diseases on it. They contend that she has broken the law by (1) removing the fawn from it's natural habitat instead of leaving nature to run it's course and (2) transported the deer over state borders.

The petition on this site helped keep the woman out of jail and the faun was released to a wild-life sanctuary after it was weened. The petitions on the site http://www.thepetitionsite.com do actually work and it's not one of those petition sites that no-one ever listens to. I my-self usually think on-line petitions are a waste of time and I thought none of these sites ever worked or saved anything until I saw the positive results of some of the petitions on that site and saw that some of them have indeed met their goals.

Thanks for your time and support and rest assured your e-mail Will Remain Private if you sign the petition. It only took me 2 minutes to fill out the petition and add my name to the list of it's supporters. Even if you don't particularly like the show, I would consider it a personal favor if you'd help support it with the petition so it can stay on the air.

                                                                                                                         Thank you my friends, Raven.

I haven't watched TV in over a year. (Can't afford it) So I don't know anything about the new or not so new shows out there. Perhaps if you'd give a brief description of what the show is about.

Quoting Uvah,

Here you go Uvah, check out the official site on ABC.

http://abc.go.com/shows/no-ordinary-family

and here:

It's a sweet @ss show . I don't actually watch it on "TV" either. I watch it on-line on the website "Hulu" where I watch a lot of other shows as well. I can't really conform my schedule to be able to catch shows when they air on TV.

If it wasn't for the fact that the rest of my family watches shows on actual TV I'd cancel my cable TV plan and just keep the cable internet. It's about to the point with our bill situation and my medical costs that I'll probably end up canceling the TV anyway. The problem is I get a "package deal" which includes my TV, Internet, and Phone. Canceling one will change my payments on the others and I won't get the package deal anymore which might actually drive the costs of the other two services I use up.

I must confess i rarely watch TV.  I have no cable.  I watch TV sat eves, PBS, the britcoms (as time goes by, keeping up appearances) and when it is on, Dr,Who.  Thats it.  So, sorry, I can't help with the family show.  But know, most quality TV shows get axed, and the trash keeps multiplying.  No one ver went broke underestimating the tastes of the American people.   I hope you find enough viewers to keep it going!

Done.

Only because you asked nicely with correct grammar.

And because your heart is in the right place or reasonably close to, for a member of your species.

Thanks Doc, much appreciated brother .

It is indeed a very rare occasion when my heart is in the "right place" as well. Usually I advocate shows that teach hot 18 year old chicks about the advantages of prostitution and how to make a name for themselves in that industry. Every now and then though I feel it's necessary to do the "right thing" when it serves my purposes.

LoL J/K about the prostitution thing.

I applaud your initiative, and know that a similar petition worked for FNL, but I cannot agree that this show needs to be saved, so I cannot sign the petition (neither did I sign the FNL one).  I suppose from the way it's phrased that it's not another show glorifying teen sex or vampires or whatever other stupidity they put on I could support it just for being different, but if Heros couldn't make it (and in my opinion Heros was vastly superior to OF) then meh, what's the point?

 

I don't know though.  This is ABC right?  ABC seems to have less of the truly stupid shows anyway, other than the horrific Bachelor/ette nonsense.  I would guess they pull out another singing/dancing/talent type show anyway, and while there may appear to be a glut of those they aren't truly terrible in the way something like desperate housewives is.

 

But anyway, good luck with it, as others have said here, I also do not watch much TV (Fringe, a couple sitcoms the kids enjoy, and... that's about it for 'appointment TV') so I don't really have a strong opinion, other than that the couple times I did watch OF it didn't do anything for me.
