TSCC: Sarah Connor Chronicles wins E! Save One Show Poll, Josh Friedman thanks the fans! and i09 has a way to help bring back TSCC for Season 3!!!

*

The Sarah Connor Chronicles won the E!  Save Our Show poll!!

Congratulations to our 2009 Save One Show winner, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles!

In case you don’t know, Save One Show is E!’s annual opportunity for fans to determine which TV series in danger of cancellation most needs to be saved…

..This year, in true killer-cyborg fashion, Terminator kicked ass, with 53 percent of the final-round vote. Chuck was the runner-up with 25 percent, followed by Dollhouse with 10 percent, Life with 8 percent and Privileged with 4 percent.

..When the results of your 300,000 votes came in, we called up Terminator show runner and executive producer Josh Friedman with the good news, and he told us exclusively, “I think I speak for everybody who works on the show when I say thank you to the fans for their tireless work to save our show. I think it really goes to show that there’s a really hard-core, emotional, passionate fan base for Terminator that is larger and more widespread than people give us credit for.”

E! Exclusive interview with Josh Freidman, go read the whole thing!:

Josh Friedman, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles show runner and executive producer, tell us that the latest news from the network is this: “They have given me no signs in either direction. I actually haven’t spoken with Fox in weeks. They said they’re going to make all their decisions when they get the pilots in, and I don’t think they have any of their pilots in yet. Things are just starting to come in from the other shows.”

Never Give Up, Never Give In: Definitely hang in there, fans, because Josh believes there is every hope that the show will get picked up. As he tells us about Fox’s executives and programming bosses (aka the powers that be), “They’re all people, too, and they hear what goes on [with stuff like Save One Show]. I don’t think it’s a futile effort at all for people to continue to fight for the show.”

when will we know for sure? Says Josh, “My experience with them in the past is they make their decision on the day that they have to make their decision and not a day before that.” And that day? That’s May 18, the day of the Fox upfront, so mark your calendars, Terminator fans! We’ll be in New York that day to get the word live, so check back early and often for the latest updates on Terminator‘s fate!

i09.com:

..We’ve started a Flickr group called “Sarah Connor Made Me Do It.” Post pictures of yourself with products that sponsored Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles there, and we’ll make sure the folks at Fox and Warner Bros. see it. (A semi-complete list of products that sponsored the show is here.) Update: Sources tell io9 the show’s biggest sponsors were Chrysler Dodge Ram and Verizon Wireless.

Bonus points if you manage to look like a Terminator or a future Resistance fighter holding a Mountain Dew bottle or Dove Bar.

You can also buy some of these products and send them to Fox or Warners at the addresses here, with a note saying “Sarah Connor made me do it.” And as always, if you do write to either studio, please make sure your post is respectful and non-psychotic. Do it for Sarah Connor!…

The Boat That Rocked – World Premiere and Official Full Trailer…

Courtesy of HDtoday:

In the late 1960s, American radio stations blasted rock and roll 24 hours a day. But in the home country of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the only way 25 million people could hear their music was to tune into a boat.

Celebrated filmmaker Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Bridget Joness Diary, Love Actually) brings the incredible story of a band of rogue deejays who captivated British radio listeners in the 60s, playing the music that defined a generation and boldly defying the government that tried to shut them down—The Boat That Rocked.

Leading the cast of the comedy are Academy Award® winner Philip Seymour Hoffman as Radio Rocks infamous deejay The Count; Bill Nighy as the stations owner (and ships captain), Quentin; Rhys Ifans as mystic deejay royalty Gavin; Nick Frost as the amorous, sarcastic disc jockey Dave; and Kenneth Branagh as the man out to silence Radio Rock, Minister Dormandy.
