1. Bring Back Downward Dog

I think it's the best new show in a long time. It's very funny and has a pertinent message.

2. See the CW Revive Friday the 13th for small screen fans

Friday the 13th continues to be a magnetic brand that reliably draws viewers to local theaters (the last Friday film to hit theaters was the 2009 Platinum Dunes remake; it opened in the top box office slot and went on to gross more than $90 million worldwide.

Apparel is still a hot commodity as evidenced by the numerous different designs consistently turned out by reliable companies like Fright Rags, Terror Threads and more.
Action figures are in demand from serious collector.
The greatest proof of fan desire lies in home video/disc sales. Single discs are sold, as are a wide assortment of boxed collections in both DVD and Blu-ray format.
The franchise is still very much alive, and it's time to see the CW push the envelope and deliver the gruesome goods fans have been calling for for some time.

3. Get The Olympains Picked Up!!

Sign our petition to show networks and streaming services you want this show to have a home! The pilot is done, the designs are done, the show is written, and the only thing left is to prove there is a demand for it. Sign and show your support!

4. GET JOANNA HAUSMANN ON THE DAILY SHOW OR CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND

Joanna Hausmann is an actress and comedian. She has a small, but dedicated fan base made of many walks of life. She was a fan favorite on FLAMA and now on Bill Nye Saves the World.

I petition for her to get at least a guest starring role on at least 1 episode of Crazy-Ex Girlfriend and or The Daily Show. Due to the fact she's funny, a feminist and has great musical ability. Whereas The Daily Show because of her knowledge in and intellectual ability to discuss political and social issues which she delivers very eloquently.

I'm hoping for at least 10,000 signatures.

5. Madelaine Petsch as Poison Ivy in Gotham City Sirens Movie

I think Madelaine Petsch would be perfect for the role. She is talented, a natural red head, she is new and young ( what they are looking for for this movie). And for you Riverdale fan, you know she can play a villain...

6. #BringBackPaige for Trading Spaces Host on TLC!

TLC network has announced that their most popular home improvement show, Trading Spaces, will be returning to the small screen in 2018. Former host, Paige Davis, who is best known for her work on the show, is a staple of Trading Spaces history. Many fans of the show have expressed an interest in having her return as host for the reboot. This petition will be presented to TLC via social media in hopes that Paige will be included in the show as their host.

7. Bring Comcast to Cypress Cove Lane in Rincon Georgia

For over 4 years our precious Cypress Cove neighborhood has been subjected to below average internet and television services with 0-1 options to change providers. Are you tired of over-paying for services that are low quality? Are you tired of unexplained outages due to neglected ‘aged’ equipment?

Are you tired of the same excused that our neighborhood connections will be upgraded to the latest and greatest, just to spend another year with the same old problems?!

Well it’s time! Let Comcast Communications know we want them and we’re willing to do what is necessary to bring them to cypress cove by signing this petition.

8. CHANNEL TEN Please make A 7th Series of OFFSPRING!

Offspring is an Australian television drama/comedy series which premiered on Network Ten on 15 August 2010. Offspring is centred on 30-something obstetrician Nina Proudman and her family and friends, as they navigate the chaos of modern life. It is filmed in Melbourne's inner north. The show mixes conventional narrative drama and comedy with flashbacks, graphic animation and fantasy sequences.

Debra Oswald wrote the series with John Edwards and Imogen Banks producing with Southern Star Entertainment.[2][3] Offspring was originally conceived as a two-hour telemovie for Ten, but was spun off into a 13 episodes series after television executives were impressed by the quality of the telemovie. The second season began on 16 May 2011, with a double episode premiere.

Offspring was renewed for its fourth and fifth seasons on 12 July 2012.

On 3 October 2014, John Edwards confirmed that Offspring would not return for a sixth series in 2015, due to Ten's cost-cutting measures in its production division. On 30 August 2015, the Herald Sun reported that a sixth season of Offspring would be made - returning after a two-year hiatus.

On 20 September 2015, Ten confirmed that Offspring would return for a sixth season in 2016. Production for the series will begin on 25 April 2016 and will run through to August 2016. Series 6 premieres at 8.30 PM on 29 June 2016.

9. Give Marshawn his own TV show

Marshawn Lynch is now retired from the NFL.

He is an enigmatic personality that is utterly entertaining to watch on screen.
He's been seen beside Conan O'Brien (with Rob Gronkowski) playing video games as well as seen on YouTube reviewing luxury cars. He does this all with aplomb.

Let's give the people what they want; give Beast Mode an way to voice his unique opinions on automobiles and video games.

10. Demand an end to Horror commercials while watching Y/G/PG/PG-13 television or movies!

Hi! My name is Aliya Kasabian and I am 12 years old. I have always been sensitive to scary images, even when I know they aren't real. My real HATE for horror commercials started when I was watching a group called Studio C (A totally family friendly group) on my Kindle Fire in my living room. There is always an ad before Youtube commercials and I had never had a problem with them until then. A "The Visit" (A horror movie) ad showed up and I FREAKED OUT! I literally THREW my kindle to the floor and started having a break down. From then on I wondered why anyone would be allowed to expose such horrid images and sounds to a lower rated channel/show.

I was able to live with horror commercials, I was just ready to close my eyes whenever an ad started. I figured it would do until June 8th of 2016. I was catching up on the latest America's got Talent episode (It is TV PG) and an R rated horror commercial came on.

Some commercials I can just look away, but I had to turn around and plug my ears in pure fear and frustration. At dinner that night I wasn't even scared, I was angry. I was tired of having to worry every time I watched something. Angry at the people who made it possible to show that ad on that show. I thought I was too young to make a change, but then I figured out you can be any age to start a petition, you just have to have adults sign it.

Please help out and sign for a good cause. How would you feel if your little girl was watching My Little Pony on any website and was exposed to such content? That's what I thought.

11. Protect our Youth: No to Drama on Television

I have created this petition in the hopes of protecting the minds of our youth that are being corrupted by what they are watching everyday in the television.

So many television series are openly showcasing immorality, crime, adultery, homosexuality, addiction, young ones placed in love teams and many other things that are unhealthy for the minds of our youth today.

What are these television series teaching us? What is the moral of the story?

12. Save Wander Over Yonder

Wander Over Yonder has been cancelled by the higher bosses at Disney because they think two seasons is enough.

13. Gokus Meets Family

I believe it's time for Goku to finally meet his family.

We all know that Bardock died a saiyans death and Gokus mother has never been mentioned in the dragon ball series. I would want a movie or an episode to correlate with Goku meeting his family or vica versa bardock and Gine coming down to Earth and seeing Goku and how much he has grown.

I have belief that Vegeta knows about Bardock and they could use the black star dragon balls or the super dragon balls to revive Bardock and Gine.

There's so much they could do with this and I would love to see this after watching dragon ball z ever since I was child.

14. Put Steven Universe back on!

Steven Universe is undoubtedly one of the best shows on Cartoon network, and the Crewniverse (the staff who work for the show) have worked very hard to make this show a success! The fact that Cartoon network cuts out this amazing show for other unimportant, low quality, abysmal shows such as Teen Titans Go.

As states on a thread post in the Steven Universe Wikia page, “A good superhero show inspires people, they're human in that they have a heart and soul, some silicon some real… Teen Titans Go, it doesn't have superheroes, it has people with powers that play superhero and sometimes care about civilians, they're often so rude to each other I wonder how they're even friends and they teach kids bad morals.”

That being said, Steven Universe is the complete contrary of TTG. Steven Universe actually teaches children the most important things in life, and how to value them. So all we ask, as a joined community, as a family, please put the show back on. Thank you for your time.

-Steven Universe Community

15. Ask BBC to Renew "Cuffs"

BBC's recent series "Cuffs" has been canceled after only series, despite the program offering authentic, carefully researched, and moving portraits of a diverse and compelling law enforcement unit.

Quality, character-driven dramatic series such as "Cuffs" fill an important place in BBC's programming and should not be abandoned or replaced with undo haste, particularly before they've had a chance to find their audience within the maelstrom of reality programming flooding the airwaves.

Give BBC's "Cuffs" more time and promotion to allow it to find this audience so that substantive, socially relevant yet entertaining dramas can be the backbone of the network's programming.

16. Tell Hulu to Quit Banning Pro-Life Commercials

Hulu, the online television company, censored two 15-second public service announcement-type commercials that direct women to alternatives to the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

The commercials provide women with a government web site they can use to find legitimate healthcare without going to the scandal-plagued abortion company caught selling aborted baby body parts.

17. Make Hoppy (Chris Hopkins) a SURVIVOR

Summer 2000... My admiration, desire, and obsession began, it was given a target to focus on. SURVIVOR was born and I became a student (to say fan would be a misuse of the word).

I've accomplished a great amount in my short 40 yrs on this planet... Served almost 15 yrs in the best Navy on the planet the US Navy. I have fought the ugliness of sexual discrimination in an age when overall people accept alternative sexual lifestyles, I once was on an early path to possibly becoming a Baptist Chaplain when a crisis of faith tested everything I thought and believed in, and Ive promised my family and friends I would do everything in my powers to make life better for them and to make sure Im never EVER boring.

I'm looking for the chance to survive, to make a difference, and to bring honor and a level of entertainment and talkativeness to SURVIVOR that hasn't happened in the course of it television history.

P.S. The name is spelled Christopher Dean Hopkins so you can get the check ready. I intend to make this life changing for everyone in my path.

18. Fusion Voices On Steven Universe

We want certain people to voice certain gem fusions on Steven Universe.

19. Get Dukes Of Hazzard back on TV land!

Tv land has taken Dukes Of Hazzard off the air following the issue currently going on about the confederate flag and what people think it stands for.

I for one grew up watching the Dukes and I don't care what anyone thinks about the confederate flag but nobody can really be offended by this tv show that many love still to this day! A show that first aired January 26, 1979 that was until recently still playing re-runs 36 years later and still being viewed by many!

It's a show that obviously made it and was loved by many and I for one have NEVER heard anyone complain about being offended by it... until now!

This is absurd and shouldn't be happening! No matter the issue with the flag, this is a tv show! It's acting! There's plenty of movies and shows that show out right racism but they are ok?!

This is crazy and I think tv land should open their eyes and realize this is a tv show, and a lot have grown watching it and we demand it be put back on the air!

Thank you in advance to all who stand behind me with this!

20. Require Commercials to be Rated and Abide by the Same Rating as Programs

Require all commercials or ads to be rated with the same system as television programs, and restrict their broadcast to shows with the same or a higher rating.

Ex. a commercial rated as "TV-14" would only be allowed to be shown on a "TV-14" or "Adult" program.

21. Save BBC Atlantis

In early 2015, BBC's fan-favourite fantasy show 'Atlantis' was unfairly axed from our screens. Unfairly because of the mountain of unresolved plots, left in one big cliffhanger, that the BBC was aware about when making the decision to axe the show after only its second season.

Fans and actors of the show alike were taken by surprise. It is with the sense of unfairness – and so much potential for this magnificent show – that we, the fans, call for a third season to carry on the adventures of Jason and friends.

If BBC does not wish to revive the show, then we call on Amazon Instant Video to rescue it just as they did with BBC's 'Ripper Street'. What must be kept in mind is that 'Atlantis' is no longer just a UK hit: BBC America have began airing the show and it has gained a significant fanbase.

22. Please Release a DVD Box Set worldwide containing all of the Super Mario Bros cartoons and Live Episodes (Complete and Uncut)

In recent years DVDs have been released featuring the various Super Mario Cartoons however, they've either been edited or had parts missing.

In 2006, Shout Factory released 2 Super Mario Bros Super Show Box Sets, but 4 live action segments were absent from the DVD. These were:
Baby Mario Love which accompanied Koopenstein,
9001: A Mario Odyssey which accompanied On Her Majesty's Sewer Service,
Texas Tea which accompanied The Trojan Koopa
George Washington Slept Here which accompanied The Unzappables

Also absent were the original cover songs that were performed for the show for example: the song Thriller was performed for Count Koopula.

When the show originally aired the Super Mario Bros Super Show was shown from Monday to Thursday and The Legend Of Zelda was shown on Friday. But although the Legend of Zelda aired on Friday, new live action segments of the Super Mario Bros aired with the Legend of Zelda. These weren't included with Super Mario Bros Super Show Box Sets but some of the segments were included on the Legend Of Zelda Box Set.

However, as with the Super Mario Bros Super Show Box Sets, not all of the Live action segments were included with the Legend Of Zelda Box Set. These were
Slime Busters which accompanied The Ringer,
Magic's Magic which accompanied Cold Spells,
Mommies Curse which accompanied Kiss'n Tell,
Tutti Frutti, Oh Mario which accompanied That Sinking Feeling,
The Magic Love which accompanied Doppelganger,
Treasure of the Sierra Brooklyn which accompanied A Hitch in the Works,
Tutti Frutti Mario which accompanied The Missing Link and
The Ghoul of My Dreams which accompanied The Moblins Are Revolting.

In 2007, Shout! Factory released a Box Set of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, but 5 cover songs were removed from certain episodes and replaced with instrumentals, for exampled both Milli Vanilli songs were removed from the episode Kootie Pie Rocks.

Since these DVD Box Sets were released, DHX media has acquired the distribution rights to these series so I am writing this petition to ask DHX media, please release a complete Super Mario Bros Box Set around the world, especially the UK were I live and the USA.

Please include in the Box Set, The Super Mario Bros Super Show with all the Cover songs returned into the cartoons, every single live action Super Mario Bros segment including the ones that accompanied the Legend Of Zelda, the previews for the Legend Of Zelda, the Dominoes Sponsors, Club Mario and the cutting to the break and returning from the break parts were Mario says things liken "The Super Mario Bros Super Show will return". Include the complete Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 with all the removed songs returned into the episodes, The complete Super Mario World TV Series, The complete King Koopa's Kool Kartoons,
The Complete Saturday Supercade segments with Mario and Donkey Kong.

Some of TV shows have never been released and There are people out there in the world who love these TV shows and would love to see them complete in one Box Set available to watch as they were shown when people first watched them a long time ago.

I hope that this petition convinces you to release this Box Set and make a lot of people happy, thank you for reading this petition and I hope you will consider it.

23. Hold AMC Responsible for Misinformation About Childbirth

In Season 3 of AMC’s television series The Walking Dead, the episode titled “The Killer Within” has a very disturbing scene in with the character of Lori has a gory, unnecessary cesarean section birth performed by the character Maggie and witnessed by her son. This scene helps perpetuate the ongoing lie of an honorable death during childbirth, which is in fact rare.

This scene is particularly awful in light of several ways that it misleadingly portrays an all too common real life situation. While the show is in fact fiction, in reality, a breach is rarely a reason by itself to perform a c-section as the baby can be turned around internally and externally.

Additionally, c-section births are performed far more often than necessary and entail far greater risks to both mother and child than natural birth through the birth canal. Here are some disturbing statistics regarding both:

According to a recent consensus statement by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), there are about four deaths for every 100,000 women after vaginal deliveries and about 13 deaths for every 100,000 women after cesareans. Severe complications like bleeding and infections are also more common – experienced by about 8.6 percent of women after vaginal births and 9.2 percent after C-sections.

Risks for a mother related to giving birth through c-section include but are not limited to the following:
• Infection: Infection can occur at the incision site, in the uterus and in other pelvic organs such as the bladder.
• Hemorrhage or increased blood loss: There is more blood loss in a cesarean delivery than with a vaginal delivery. This can lead to anemia or a blood transfusion (1 to 6 women per 100 require a blood transfusion1).
• Injury to organs: Possible injury to organs such as the bowel or bladder (2 per 1002).

Risks for a child who is birth using c-section include but are not limited to:
• Premature birth: If gestational age was not calculated correctly, a baby delivered by cesarean could be delivered too early and have low birth weight6.
• Breathing problems: When delivered by cesarean, a baby is more likely to have breathing and respiratory problems. Some studies show the existence of greater need for assistance with breathing and immediate care after a cesarean than with a vaginal delivery7.
• Fetal injury: The baby may be nicked or cut during the incision (on average, 1 or 2 babies per 100 will be cut during the surgery).

This information makes it particularly disturbing how quickly the characters in the show, who claim to love the character Lori, make the snap decision to sacrifice her life unnecessarily to facilitate the birth of her child. Not only could the scene inappropriately scare young mothers into believing that a breach or risk thereof requires a c-section birth, but it also seems to suggest that a mother’s life should be easily expendable if it can save the life of a child. Neither of these is true and the implication is irresponsible.

While it would be desirable to remove the scene from future airings of the episode, at the very least a disclaimer at the beginning of the episode should clearly state that the scene portrays dangerous untruths about the safety of natural birth vs. c-section with a link to accurate information. The viewership of the show includes many young parents and AMC needs to take responsibility for ensuring that they do not support misinformation that could greatly endanger their health and wellbeing.

24. Bring W.I.T.C.H. Back

Hi, this is to all who may be reading.

In today's "Television World" the shows are for lack of a better word crap and this was what I feel was the end to an era of "Good Television" and this show it wasn't just good it was great. You could really get into the show it is a same that we, the Viewers, are seeming to have no say in what we watch.

That is why I have chosen to petition, and if you have just wandering upon this I urge you to look at this Series and please come back and Sign the Petition.

25. Change the Programming

This petition is in regards to the recent addition of the three televisions within the Ventura Community College cafeteria. We come to you with three grievances, the first being that not only are they distracting because of the lewd content presented by on the current MTV channel, but they pose a blatant degradation of VC's community.

These televisions come in the wake of the new Title IX / Campus SaVE Act video that is shown to anyone logging into the VCCCD Portal. In the description of the video, it states, "This video discusses prevention and awareness programs to new students and employees regarding rape, domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking," and yet here we are, only a week or two later, showing music videos of rap songs that promote this kind of filth within our own campus walls.

We will not tolerate these vulgarities being streamed constantly in the cafeteria. Our second grievance is that having MTV play on "government owned property," as stated by the police officials stationed on campus, legal standards are being crossed by the use and implications of multiple drugs within these music videos on "government owned property."

Our final grievance comes from the lack of morality and meaningful content from artists and songs that are most popular in middle and high school levels where children are happy to play a game of monkey see, monkey do with rampant drugs and sex. This content is immature in contrast to our age range and desire to pursue a higher level of formal education and degrees.

26. Mandate the FCC to stop broadcasting of the female-derogative "B-word" on TV

The “B–word” is a derogatory word, a pejorative*. Yet it is spoken on TV every day, in reference to women and girls.

Repeated television-broadcast use of this word implies worthlessness and inferiority of half the population of our country. It is a verbal manifestation of hate and misogyny against female-kind. And it is now used in every single show on TV, just about – from cartoons and comedy, to drama, “reality” and talk shows. We can’t escape it! Its prolific use is teaching the whole next generation of kids and young people that it’s ‘normal’ to refer to women as “B”+ "itches."

Women are not “B-words” and it’s time we stopped allowing this hate-speech against women on TV. Sign this petition to encourage Congress to pass a bill mandating that the FCC stop the broadcast of this vile and prejudicial word on television networks and programs.

*Pejorative (definition): adjective 1. having a disparaging, derogatory, or belittling effect or force.

27. Bring Google Fiber to Augusta

For too long we have been held back by the monolpoly of Comcast and their sub-par performance and customer service. Unscheduled outages, low speed peak traffic hours, and overpriced internet are a thing of the past. Google Fiber is launching, and they are coming out fast.

We deserve internet speeds that can support our ever growing technological lives. Many people pay $70 to $80 for internet speeds that are promised to reach "up to 50 Mbps", but those speeds are far and few between and intermittent at best. Google Fiber is $100/month and can take care of all of your home networking needs. Your television streaming eliminates the need for cable or satellite services.

Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) telephone services eliminate the need for ATT, Comcast, and other telephone providers. With Google Fiber, all of those needs are not only satisfied, but the expectations are well exceded. With speeds of 1 Gbps (that's 1000 Mbps; more than 20x's faster than the fastest internet you can purchase today) for only $100, you can eliminate the need for those other bills.

It becomes infinitly easier to stream your television shows, surf the web, download music, upload pictures, and more. That 1 Gbps speed is not only the download speed, but it is the upload speed as well. Compare that to the 15 Mbps that you may be getting now, and it becomes clear that this is a technology that we need in the this rapidly expanding economy. Sign the petition, and lets get the internet speeds and freedom that we deserve.

28. Raise Production Assistant Wages in NYC

We help make your favorite shows: Orange Is The New Black, The Blacklist, Person of Interest, Elementary, Madam Secretary, Girls, The Good Wife, and the list goes on. We also work on popular features like The Amazing Spiderman, The Dark Knight Rises, Ninja Turtles, etc.

Production assistants on Film and Television sets provide an invaluable service to all productions operating within NYC. They have no job description, so they can be asked to do anything. They operate vehicles, they handle talent, paperwork, they lock up city streets, they deal with vendors, they handle petty cash and credit card purchases, they handle valuable costumes and jewelry, and do many other much less glamorous tasks. They also work 12 hours a day minimum. They are the first people on set, and the last to leave, and they work in any weather conditions.

The average rate for a production assistant has been $150/12 for decades. Costs of living have gone up, our rent has gone up, the price of gas has gone up, the cost of education has gone up, and minimum wage has gone up. But our rate hasn't. Which means we are making closer to minimum wage now than we were even 5 years ago. Even worse, production companies are switching to $150/14, meaning we are making even less than we were even a year ago.

Many PAs quit before they move up because they can't afford to do this work for years at a time. Without the mandatory overtime, we would be living eerily close to the poverty line, because our work leaves us unemployed throughout certain parts of the year. We get no health benefits, no paid days off or vacation time, and have no retirement benefits.

We deserve better. We deserve a living wage.

29. Save Community Television

Community Television is a vital learning ground for many people starting out in the industry. A place to 'learn the ropes' and have their creative ideas tried and tested. It is a vital place for small production groups to be able to broadcast their 'self-made' shows in a TV Station environment.

Many people we see on our Commercial Channels today got their start on Community Television, when no-one else would give them a foot in the door.

It is also vital to many elderly residents who may not have access to the internet or even any knowledge of how to use the internet and rely on their faithful Community Television to broadcast shows they enjoy, including many classic old movies that never make any appearance on the Commercial Channels. Community Television is exactly that - 'COMMUNITY Television', Television for the Community created by the Community and it should be supported and celebrated.

30. Remove the Corrie Gap

Popular television soap Coronation Street is on three nights a week and draws in huge audiences but why are viewers forced to endure half an hour's gap in the middle of their entertainment of choice? A one hour slot of Coronation Coronation would be far more sensible than the current Corrie Gap which forces people to watch another half hour programmme before they can continue with the programme that they want to watch.

What other television programme has a gap in the middle of it? Is ITV in cahoots with BBC1 so that some keen soap addicts can turn over to watch EastEnders? Those of us who don't follow the goings on in Albert Square are forced to channel hop or watch the usually banal half hour programme that is slotted into the Corrie Gap.

Another advantage of putting Corrie into a one hour slot is that subsequent programmes can start earlier. More Lewis perhaps?

Please support my campaign to end the Corrie Gap.
