A group at The Firecracker Lounge is trying to organize a movement similar to the one that brought back Jericho. It appears that they will be focusing on HBO as a potential channel to pick up TBD. Please visit http://thefirecrackerlounge.com and the website they have created at http://www.savetheblackdonnellys.net for more info!

"Hey everyone,
Make sure you all head over to www.thefirecrackerlounge.com between 8 and 9pm EST tonight, to find the articles to digg and bury!

Then of course, watch the new episode on NBC.com at 9pm EST. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE EPISODE WILL MOST LIKELY NOT LOAD RIGHT AWAY! Sometimes people get it in 10 minutes, sometimes people have to wait 2 hours. Just be patient and eventually you will get it!

And of course the new episode will be available on iTunes tomorrow morning, so as usual, make sure to download it so we can get good numbers on iTunes!

Any questions/comments and feel free to message me, I am here to help. =)

Donnellys Never Say Die!"

Okay TBD fans here is the scoop:

1) We want to kick the Quarter Letter Writing campaign into high gear. We have decided that the fans should agree on a charity that we will specify all the quarters should go to. We will notify NBC and the chosen charity of this. We also want to alert media outlets to let them know we are doing this and raise more attention to the efforts to save TBD. If anyone has any input as to what charity we should work with, PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP! I thought it would be cool if it was a charity that had ties to the Irish-American community, but it really doesn't matter. Please send me all suggestions and then we will take a poll to see what charity fans would like to support.

2) Tomorrow being Monday, a lot of people want to know what the plan of attack is. We had originally decided to make calls to NBC every Monday, however in light of the article that Kristen from E! put out, we are beginning to think this is not a good idea. So tomorrow, please don't make any calls to NBC.

3) What we WOULD like to do, it pick a different company (be it a media source, or another cable network channel) and start directing our letters/emails to them. We DO NOT however want to flood their phone lines and annoy them, so we are trying to get a specific number of fans to write letters on behalf of everyone else. Let me just say this-- the last time I asked for volunteers for things, I got very few responses. At one point I sent an email to a bunch of people that had volunteered to look up contact info, and asked them to get me email addresses for a list of companies, and not a single person did it. I know you guys are busy, I know you have lives. We all do. If you don't feel like this is something you can handle, please don't volunteer. If you would like to take part in this, please let me know. We will be deciding who we are contacting/when we are contacting them as soon as possible.

4) If you are not registered at thefirecrackerlounge.com, please go register now. It is the best place for TBD fans to gather. NBC.com has been deleting threads posted on the message board there., and the IMDB boards tend to get a lot of very hostile users who are really just getting in the way of the effort. The Firecracker is a safe, fun place for real fans to be, and it would be very helpful if everyone was registered over there!

5) There should be a "digg" scheduled for tomorrow night around 8:45 pm EST, as we've done the last couple weeks. You can find out more info about that after registering at the Firecracker Lounge, which is where links to the articles we want to "digg" are going to be found.

6) Tomorrow night it is extremely likely that the episode will not be up when it is supposed to be. DON'T CALL NBC! Just be patient. It might take 15 minutes, it might take 2 hours, it might not even work all night. But eventually it will, and calling NBC to bitch about their horrible technology is not going to change anything, it's just going to annoy them.

If anyone has anything they want to know, or knows of anything I forgot to include here, please let me know. I am here to help!
