If Anyone Happens To Know A Nielsen Family Or Two...

The Arrested Development season finale aired last night, so now starts the three-month nervous waiting game praying that FOX will renew the best show on television. Thanks to a plethora of stupid Americans who apparently need a little help finding the jokes in a sitcom, Arrested Development's ratings are unduly low, despite apparent, and to be honest, rather confusing, support from FOX. FOX has even set up an online petition to save the show, which I'm begging you to sign. Hell, even if you don't watch the show, you know if Arrested Development gets cancelled, it's just going to be replaced by yet another formulaic comedy about a single woman working at a magazine with a bunch of ostensibly wacky friends, and that's not going to be good for anybody.

On a side note, if you come across petitions to, say, free Tibet or stop the ethnic cleansing in the Darfur, feel free to sign those too.
