For 40 years Cheech and Chong have entertained the world with their comedy regarding Marijuana. From what started out by a controlling governments around the world claiming that a naturally grown plant they claimed led to hard drugs has now been downgraded and then upgraded as a medicinal plant which studies from the 1800's have proven that it has usage for Depression, Sleep Disorders, Asthma, Gluacoma, and today Cancer.
Desperate Housewives has been on for 8 seasons straight and we all know that they don't plan to bring it back for season 9, but i can't stop feeling sad every day,especially those days when you see commercials for new shows.
I just watch and realize that my wives, OUR WIVES ARE GONE FOR GOOD!
Malibu Country is an amazing show, though it is likely to be cancelled.
Reba and Lily Tomlin are hilarious and we want this show to be on tv next season.
After the crowd funding success of short film / pilot 'What a Gun', Dingo Cross Films seeks to continue the adventures of Bernie Brown and her faithful companion Bourke, the talking dog, in a mini series called 'Brown About Town'.
The show will be comedy / fantasy / drama, with familiar plotlines and characters, but a touch of insanity. You’ll never know what Bernie's fantastical mind might conjure up next, anything goes for 'Brown About Town'.
We believe in scope for a six part mini series, with 30 minute episodes, and seek an audience show of support. If you like what we do at Dingo Cross Films, raise your hand for something a little bit different!
To show your further support, please 'like' the Dingo Cross Films page at facebook.com/dingocrossfilms
Hitter, Hacker, Grifter, Thief, Brains... Don't break up the crew!
Me and Mrs Jones was a prime-time sitcom on BBC 1 in the UK in October/November 2012. Drawing on some of the talents that made the amazing Green Wing, Me and Mrs Jones is clever, insightful, brilliantly scripted, directed and produced.
The actors are superb, with Sarah Alexander in the title role and the wonderful Robert Sheehan, Neil Morrissey and Nathaniel Parker as the 3 men in her life. The supporting cast is also brilliant.
The show was up against several populist standards and ill-promoted by the BBC, hence ratings weren't great. But 99% of those that saw it, loved it and became really involved with all the characters. Many people blogged, wrote to the BBC or tweeted for the first time, in support of the show. The series ended on a wonderful, dramatic, romantic cliffhanger.
The British Comedy Guide said 'If a second series isn't commissioned of this heart-warming, laugh-out-loud comedy, it'll be the televisual crime of the year.'
Then the BBC in its wisdom decided not to make a second series. Why? Maybe because of the ratings, although that is surely due to poor promotion. Maybe because it's show that is expected to appeal to women, although many men and kids love it too.
Please watch it if you haven't, then you'll be sure to sign this petition in support of a second series. The BBC has failed viewers in not giving this show a chance to achieve what it surely can. Come on BBC, lets have another series!
WE ARE PROPOSING THAT THE FORMER BALLROOM KNOWN TO MANY AS 'THE CRYSTAL' OR 'TIFFANY'S' IS RE-OPENED TO PROVIDE TRADITIONAL THEMED EVENTS SUCH AS; LIVE ENTERTAINMENT, MODERN JIVE, BALLROOM DANCING, THEMED 70's & 60's NIGHTS ETC, AIMED PRIMARILY AT THE OVER 30's AGE GROUP.
RECENT PROPOSALS TO DEVELOP THE SITE NOW SEEM UNLIKELY AND AS A RESULT, THE BUILDING COULD CONTINUE TO FALL INTO DISREPAIR. PREVIOUS INTERVIEWS WITH THE SENTINEL AND SIGNAL RADIO HAVE NOW RESULTED IN THE OWNERS CONSIDERING THIS PROPOSAL.
I'm not sure if anyone knows why this show got cancelled.
BRING IT BACK!

Cinematic Titanic is a live comedy show and movie screening event from the creator and cast of the Peabody Award winning television show Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Comedians Joel Hodgson, Trace Beaulieu, J. Elvis Weinstein, Mary Jo Pehl, and Frank Conniff provide standup commentary for a movie screened before a live audience. After performances, the cast usually has a signing line where fans can meet their favorite movie riffers. For more information on the show, see http://cinematictitanic.com.
This is inspired by the Tompkins300 groups on Faebook who helped book shows for comedian Paul F. Tompkins, and it will work for us too! A description of Paul's campaign, the inspiration for ours, is here: http://paulftompkins.com/blog_detail.php?id=47. The gist is: when enough people promised to see him, he did a show in their city.
This petition is that promise for a Cinematic Titanic show. Facebook changed the way that groups work, so our campaign to Bring Cinematic Titanic to Louisville, KY is using this petition instead of page Likes to measure our group's true size and audience commitment.
If a theater will book Cinematic Titanic, we will come to see them in Louisville, KY!
☆★～～ ATTENTION MSTIES ～～★☆
1. Why do you want to sign? Because I've met Joel Hodgson, and so can you! The Titans always have a signing line after shows.
2. That said, PLEASE ONLY SIGN IF YOU ARE ABLE TO set aside the ticket and/or travel costs and are likely to attend the show in when it is booked. For campaigns like this to work, we have to convince the theater owners AND the Titans that a show in Louisville will make money. Things certainly come up, and no one will hate you if you can't get a babysitter that night, but please be realistic about your ability to be in Louisville, KY for a show.
3. Please do not bug Cinematic Titanic about this show or this petition. It is not their decision. Venue owners are the decision makers we want to influence. Please be nice to them so they will take us seriously.
4. When we have 300 signatures, we will start contacting theaters such as the Louisville Palace or the Kentucky Center For the Performing Arts to find a venue for a Cinematic Titanic show.
5. After signing, please continue to spread the word! Check out our Facebook fan page and join the mailing list for monthly updates on our progress. Join us, won't you?
This petition is an Online Lebanese Flag signing to show support for Comedian Wissam Kamal "The Doctor" and His stand up comedy tour of Lebanon "Humour Therapy" .
This quirky science fiction comedy is a characteristic feature by iconoclastic director Tim Burton, known to moviegoers for Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
The storyline affectionately harkens back to the deadpan sincerity of such '50s and '60s science-fiction films as The Day the Earth Stood Still and War of the Worlds. Flying saucers have been reliably seen over the capitals of the world, and the whole world awaits with bated breath to see what will transpire.
Among those waiting is the President of the United States (Jack Nicholson), who is assured by his science advisor (Pierce Brosnan) that the coming aliens are utterly peaceful. This advice is hotly contested by the military (led by Rod Steiger), who advices the President to annihilate them. When the aliens land, they are seen to be green, garish, and very cheerful. But appearances prove deceiving when the "friendly" aliens abruptly disintegrate the entire U.S. Congress. Hollywood notables appear in vast quantities in roles (and sub-plots) of all sizes in this zany feature, says moviefone.com where it also recieved a 100% 5star viewer score.
This Amazingly amusing movie made over $9mil when it opened in theaters in 1996. This is a petition to re-make "Mars Attacks!" with todays special effects. However as fans of the movie it is requested that all the original actors (Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close,Annette Bening,Pierce Brosnan,Danny DeVito,Sarah Jessica Parker, Michael J. Fox, Lukas Haas, Natalie Portman, Jack Black, Christina Applegate) be used in the remake and that the storyline be preserved.
Tim Burton is an amazing producer but this movie has a lot more potential now with better effects and a larger audience we know Tim Burton can deliver a proper re-make.
Flavor Flav has had several hit shows that drew in massive audiences.
He is funny, witty and brings a certain something to T.V. that no one has since him. He was able to spawn a lot of spin-off shows that also gained huge T.V. audiences.
Blue Mountain State, was an amazing television show that ran from January 11th 2010, until it's cancelation in February of 2012. BMS was a football based sitcom that aired on the Spike Television Network.
It was easily the best looking show, was amazingly written, and arguably the greatest sitcom on TV today. Whoever watched the show immediately fell in love with it.
The show was adored by fans all over The United States and Canada. The show became more and more popular reaching a audience of well over 800,000.
After two series, BBC3 have decided to axe Mongrels from it's schedules. For a channel that boasts about supporting British talent it's full of american and reality shows. Viewing figures should not be important for the BBC. It is not a commercial channel and has to appeal to everyone across the board.
Mongrels was clever, rude, offensive and unlike anything else. The brilliant team behind it DESERVE a third series. The fans DESERVE another series.
The Upright Citizens Brigade is an improv and sketch comedy group that emerged from Chicago's ImprovOlympic in 1990. Most notable among the members are Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh, also known as the UCB 4.
The Upright Citizens Brigade did amazing work for comedy, both improv and sketch, and many of todays new comedians have studied at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. The UCB 4 formed a television series dedicated to their sketch comedy on Comedy Central that aired for three seasons from 1998 to 2000.
Each season contained 10 episodes, which included sketches inspired by their live shows and that also included new material. Seasons one and two were released on DVD.
FACT: Craig Ferguson is a brilliant comedian!
FACT: Melbourne.. Australia for that matter, wants Craig to come here and make us laugh.
I am starting this petition to try and get the TV channel GOLD (formerly UK Gold, UKTV Gold and G.O.L.D.) to join Freeview and be available to Freeview viewers.
The channel predominantly shows classic British comedies like Only Fools and Horses, Blackadder, One Foot in the Grave and Fawlty Towers for the vast majority of the day.
The channel is currently available only on Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk TV.
I feel it would be a great advantage to people who have Freeview, and who do not want to spend a lot of money on buying Sky/Virgin etc. Many people are fond of these old sitcoms.
Thank you and please sign.
I want the British public to help me to get the British comedian and comedy actor Ronnie Corbett a knighthood and a posthumous knighthood for Ronnie Barker. Barker and Corbett are/were arguably Britain's best-loved comic duo and they deserve to be knighted for their services to British television and humour.
Ronnie Corbett is well-known for his stand-up career as well as his acting in the Two Ronnies and the sitcom Sorry!
Ronnie Barker is famous for his comedy partnership with Corbett as well as his much-loved roles as Norman Stanley Fletcher and Albert Arkwright in the 70s sitcoms Porridge and Open All Hours. Barker passed away in 2005.
Please sign this petition for:
SIR RONNIE CORBETT
SIR RONNIE BARKER
I would like the BBC to show repeats of their classic British sitcoms like One Foot in the Grave, Last of the Summer Wine (from the very start!), Keeping up Appearances, The Good Life, Fawlty Towers and Only Fools and Horses.
We want to see more of these classic, impeccably crafted comedies on our screens!!
This petition is to get the BBC to wipe every episode of the awful, unfunny, plagiarising and overlong running comedy series My Family.
"I'm With Stupid" was one of the funniest new comedy series of recent years. Shown only once on BBC3 nothing more has been seen for over 3 years now. It showed people with disabilities in a very positive, favorable way, and was extremely popular among discerning people with disabilities, as well as the those without! It was funny, gentle family entertainment and was set to change attitudes towards disabled people, by showing them getting the "upper hand" over all the very silly non-disabled folks they were involved with.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyMaVEXGi7U
This petition is here to save the show Better Off Ted on ABC (Usually on Tuesdays at some time). They have started to run two new episodes a week and this seems to be a sign that they are just running the last episodes until it is gone.
We are attempting to get them to put new episodes on Wednesdays or at least attempt to promote the show.
24. Lost Boys 4
The original Lost Boys was ahead of it's time and captured the imagination of a generation. There are not many people today who have not seen The Lost Boys.
Fans of the original waited 21 years for a below par sequel that went straight to DVD. Now the third installment is set to release and slated for a straight to DVD release as well.
D’Andre Siggers is a comedian who broadcasts on http://www.justin.tv regularly and has provided countless hours of unheralded hilarity, slapstick humor, and greatly appreciated satire by all who have had the distinct pleasure and honor to watch and follow Mr. Siggers life unfold in front of our eyes.
D’Andre Siggers has invited many into his life because he chooses to and does so with great importance those not only leaves an everlasting impression on him but on us as we take time out of our hectic lives and sit down to relax and enjoy comedy that cannot be seen or heard in any other medium out there.
His unique charm and charismatic nature is so powerful you would believe that such characteristics can only exist on a high profile comedian or much publicized entertainment star but yet is wielded with great precision and utmost care and determination by, I dare say, a simple man who currently resides in Houston, Texas. D’Andre Siggers is quite an anomaly of a person in which that he is just like all of us but yet so different.
We all have hopes and dreams in whatever we believe what he can possible do and we do what we can to reach those dream and goals even if it takes every ounce of sweat and pounds of flesh ripped from sacrifice. In this we can relate with D’Andre Siggers in his ambition of becoming famous not just for money but for others, yes money can be quite a persuasive object of obsession but a man like D’Andre Siggers does not move forward in life towards just for money, fame or even power. His wish is to move past them and pick them up along the way and use them as tools to do what he has done for the past year, day in and day out, with nights of sleep sacrificed for one thing that he has repeated so much but yet has fallen on deaf ears and blind eyes from the administrative staff at http://www.justin.tv, and that is to help not himself but those who that need help, those that are afraid to have a voice, those who come on to his broadcast channel and seek guidance in form of comedic entertainment or advice from D’Andre Siggers. He proclaims himself as a “motivational funnyman”, but no longer has he expressed this by himself, but now in unison by a family of friends, a so called “Sigga Nation”. I myself admit that I have not know this man since his first days on http://www.justin.tv, but with a man like D’Andre Siggers it will not take long to know a great man like he is.
Trouble times have fallen on my friend, on our friend and I wish to speak on the behalf of the Sigga Nation and proclaim that injustice has been committed again our friend D’Andre Siggers.
D’Andre Siggers’ http://www.justin.tv account and broadcast channel was immediately suspended on March 20, 2009 due to violations of terms of service according to http://www.justin.tv. I have been a viewer of Mr. Siggers since July of 2008 and in my honest opinion nothing has changed from that time to March 20, 2009 that warrants a suspension of his account. I have see, viewed, and heard from other site viewers with disgust other http://www.justin.tv channels that broadcast sexual acts, criminal mischief, illegal streaming of copyrighted material to the mass public, pornographic material, and even supposed statutory rape according to one viewer that greatly, without a shadow of a doubt pales in comparison to what Mr. Siggers offers to the internet community.I have yet seen appropriate action to be taken on these horrible repulsive http://www.justin.tv channels, and yet they would still arise and go unnoticed a for a long period of time if action was meddled out. I request that D’Andre Siggers’ http://www.justin.tv account suspension to be lifted immediately and an apology to be issued by the administrative staff of http://www.justin.tv to D’Andre Siggers and his fans. The only reason me and my peers go on http://www.justin.tv is to watch Mr. Siggers perform noteworthy and paramount work that entreats his fans coming back to http://www.justin.tv just to watch the unique presence that D’Andre Siggers brings to the website.
We are presently waiting for the administrative staff of http://www.justin.tv decision whether to grant our right to be heard and reevaluate the decision made to suspend Mr. D’Andre Siggers account.
The hot TV sensation inuyasha has ending at only 167 episode in Washington Dc but, in japan and magna they are up to 400 episodes. I don't not think that it is fair because not all people speak japanese and we should have a right to watch the other episodes.
for years family guy has been making families laugh, why cancle it??? the show is sooooo funny...
Let’s face it, Mollie Sugden is a national treasure and a British cultural institution and therefore it is about time her services to television and the arts are recognised. Mollie is probably best known for her portrayal of Mrs Slocombe in the BBC’s Are you Being Served? (1972-1985).
From this role she was catapulted to international recognition embraced in particular by the USA where the show is still re-run. In 2002 a tribute programme called Celebrating Mollie Sugden: An Are You Being Served? Special aired on American PBS, a testement to American public’s affection for her.
With a career that began 1962 Mollie has been on our screens, on and off, for the past 42 years with her most recent role being in 2003. She has appeared in some of the greatest and iconic British comedy’s and is herself a comedy icon. Recognition for her work is long overdue – please sign this and help make Mollie Sugden a Dame. Thank you.
Recently the Philippines Foundation took offense at a sketch by the Harry and Paul show on BBC Television. Their petition can be found here http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/dignity-and-respect-for-the-filipino-worker.html
The foundation accused the BBC and the show of "inciting stereotyped racial discrimination, vulgarity and violation of the maid's human rights", and said the sketch was "tantamount to racism and [the] worst sexual abuse and exploitation of the hapless young Filipina domestic worker employee,".
The sketch clearly plays on exaggerated stereotypes, particularly of the southern family where the sketch parodies the thin thread of prejudice against 'other' people of lower standing, which common culture suggests Southerners posses. The sketch is funny precisely because it plays on stereotypes, and doesn't cross the, quite definite and clear, boundary into cruelty.
This petition is for all those people who are fed up with humourless and politically correct individuals and organisations, epitomised by the liberal commentariat and political circles, who look for insults where there are none and seek out offense.
Too often nowadays such organisations feel obliged to identify violations of human rights, usually by misunderstanding comedy and thus failing to understand from where the humour is derived in such performances. The public don't need to be exposed to the arrogant moral superiority of these organisations, who grasp the wrong end of the stick and direct attacks towards undeserving targets.
No doubt there are genuine, and far more serious, abuses, towards which the time and energy of these organisations would be far better focussed.
There should be more seasons of the anime series Kanokon.
