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!


..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!…

List of TSCC Product Sponsors for Flickr Campaign after the jump:

yeshermione at cameronandjohn.com, and kassandrajones at our livejournal community have been kind enough to contribute to this list of advertisers for the show, but it is by no means exhaustive. If you know of any others we should add, email us at moderators@savethescc.com. In the meantime…get emailing!

A member of our forums made the following suggestion in regard to what to write to the advertisers:

“Tell the advertisers you watch T:SCC and view their commercials. Express that you are not a Nielsen household member, but you still saw their commercial and appreciate them for investing in T:SCC. “

    Frankly im disgraced at how fox has canceled TSCC, its probably one of the best shows i have ever seen. To tell you the truth i have always been hooked to TSCC, since in Australia we were always behind a few shows i had to stream or just wait in anticipation for the new episodes, i never thought a tv series would get me this hooked but its so friking awesome!!!!!. Im hoping with all these replies across multiple websites fox will get a glimpse into what their destroying the series have gone from good to extraordinary they cant leave all us fans hanging. Season 2 finished off with so many unanswered question and how will they link it to terminator 3 and 4, please im begging reconsider your actions. Seriously Tv series usually go from good to worst, TSCC has just pushed the boundaries, the last episodes of season 2 had me jumping of my seat with excitement (literally)and has many have said not all have giving the series a chance to blossom.

    I live in Australia, im 20 always been a terminator fan, im begging to reconsider bringing back terminator TSCC, u cant just finsih the series with so many fans dying to find out what is going to happen.PLEASE!!!!!!!!
