31. Petition Calling all Media/Music/Film/Arts Representatives to show UNITY

We are concerned regarding the Conflict in Palestine and Israel.

We need to find peace.

32. Legend of the Seeker must be renewed for Season 3

We need season 3! Save our seeker!

Legend of the Seeker is a television series based on novels in the series titled The Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind. Distributed in U.S. by Disney-ABC Domestic Television, ABC Studios produced the series, which was its first foray into broadcast syndication, with Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert, Joshua Donen, Ned Nalle, and Kenneth Biller serving as executive producers. The show premiered on November 1, 2008 and ran for two seasons before its cancellation in 2010.

The series follows the journeys of a long awaited "Seeker of Truth" named Richard Cypher (Craig Horner), a Confessor named Kahlan Amnell (Bridget Regan), a wizard named Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander (Bruce Spence), and a warrior named Cara (Tabrett Bethell) as they defend the people of their realm against tyranny and destruction. The story depicted in the television series substantially differs from that as portrayed in the written series.


33. Get SABC to broadcast Proteas Cricket!

Cricket is one of South Africa's top sports and the SABC should recognize this. There are over 30 million cricket supporters in the country, many of whom cannot afford DSTV.

The SABC should make it its responsibility to broadcast highlights packages of overseas matches, at the very least

34. Bring back the original Garfield and Friends TV show

Garfield and Friends ( ) was an American animated television series based on the comic strip Garfield by Jim Davis. It ran from September 17, 1988 to December 10, 1994.

Each episode included segments featuring both Garfield and U.S. Acres/Orson's Farm, a lesser-known comic strip also created by Davis. There is a television show on Cartoon Network called ( ) but it does not include U.S. Acres/Orson's Farm. It also uses a different type of animation.

35. HGTV: Stop Discriminating Against Pro-Life Christians

HGTV has canceled a new reality television show, Flip It Forward, that was scheduled to debut on Home and Garden Television this October, after learning the stars of the show are pro-life. During the program, brothers David and Jason Benham would be helping families purchase dream homes they otherwise couldn’t afford.


Home and Garden Television has decided to cancel the show after pro-abortion activists outed the brothers as pro-life. The pro-abortion group People for the American Way tagged the brothers as “anti-choice” extremists in an article on their web site and includes comments one of the brothers made about God abhorring abortion.

The network confirmed it was dropping the show, saying on its Facebook page: “HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers’ series.”

36. Punish those in the Media for Deliberately Upskirting Princess Kate

On 28th April, 2014 the ABC Television show “Media Watch” replayed footage originally run on 8th April, 2014 on free-to-air public television by the Channel 9 ‘Today’ television show.

That footage – suitably censored – can be viewed at

Both the ABC and Channel 9 are guilty of deliberately and specifically ‘upskirting’ Princess Kate as she stepped off a plane when a gust of wind briefly lifted her skirt.

This was an illegal, criminal action, not to mention being offensively rude.

Both television stations deliberately paused the video footage at the exact moment of maximum exposure up the Princess’ skirt and then – to add insult to injury – zoomed in to a close-up, an action inarguably no different from the illegal activity of 'upskirting.'

Given that the Princess was wearing a full-length and completely modest skirt, what the two television stations have done is nothing less than a deliberate invasion of her privacy.

Not only was no attempt being made to protect Princess Kate’s modesty and dignity, every effort - both deliberate and disgraceful to Australia and severely disrespectful to the Princess - was made to invade her privacy.

We, the decent citizens of Australia are egregiously offended and embarrassed…

· by the wilful, deliberate activities of these two television stations.

· that the two television stations have so egregiously and so deliberately offended a member of the Royal Family.

· that the actions of these two television stations have projected an image of Australia to the world as being a smut-loving, rude and disrespectful nation with an inability, as would become a properly-civilised society, to be respectful of women in general and royalty in particular when embarrassing circumstances beyond their control occur.

37. Stop Negative News Reporting

Do you really need to hear about all the negative events that happen in your local city?

Are you tired of hearing about random shootings and crime that make stories on the local news? Let's put a stop to this ridiculous un-necessity.

38. Save ABC Family's "Ravenswood"

It has been announced that ABC Family has decided to cancel the "Pretty Little Liars" spin-off "Ravenswood" after only one 10-episode season. This decision is said to be due to low ratings and the lack of a fanbase.

Fans of this series do exist, however, and we would like to make ourselves heard. It is our belief that "Ravenswood" was not given sufficient airtime to generate the kind of large fanbase that a series of its quality deserves.

Gathering fans takes time, especially when the series in question is debuted in a prime time slot against already popular shows. Convincing fans of a successful "parent" series that a spin-off is worthwhile takes time.

Given these facts, we believe that this show was cancelled prematurely.

39. Cast Ingrid Oliver as Osgood as The Doctor's Next Companion

WHEREAS We love Clara Oswald, but know that her time with the Doctor will eventually come to an end and

WHEREAS The Doctor's recent companions (Amelia Pond, River Song, Clara Oswald) have all been the center of some sort of mysterious happenings, puzzles for The Doctor to solve, rather than regular people who happened to fall in with him as many previous companions were and

WHEREAS We, the undersigned, kinda miss having a regular non-mysterious person as a companion (not that we don't love Amy, River, and Clara) and

WHEREAS We, the undersigned, found Osgood to be immediately relatable and a strong character despite her limited screen time and

WHEREAS Osgood is already, most likely unknowingly, friends with a later incarnation of The Doctor who is working in the museum, as indicated by the scarf he appears to have given her:

40. Nickelodeon: Put Avatar: The Last Airbender back on Netflix!

Avatar: The Last Airbender was a successful animated television program that aired on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008. It was geared at people between the ages of 12 to 18, but was successful among all age groups.

The Last Airbender covered many important issues, from love and friendship, to rebuilding the world after a devastating genocide. The show also accurately represented many groups that are currently underrepresented in the media.

There were many strong, dynamic female characters and characters of color. Avatar was very important to its fanbase, and many people continue to watch it even 5 years after the termination of the program.

Until recently, these fans were able to view Avatar: The Last Airbender through the Netflix platform. We are urging Nickelodeon to allow Avatar to return to Netflix.

41. Bring Back The Glee Project

The Glee Project was recently cancelled by Oxygen after only two seasons and its unfair.

It was such a unique show and wasn't like the other singing shows, it was so much more. There was diversity and the contestants were real and easy to relate to.

Please sign if you want to see this show back on the air!

42. Help Save the television show 'No Ordinary Family'

The show 'No Ordinary Family' needs the chance to continue successful despite the low ratings.

It had the adventure of usual superhero television series but had an advantage due to the comical twist given by the insight to family life.

43. Yes to Mark O'Mara; Talk Show Guest Doing Impressions

Influenced by Mark O'Mara's lovely impression of Prosecutor John Guy during the defense's closing statements in the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman trial on Friday, June 12, 2013.

"[Grunt]! F'ing Punks!"

We solemnly attest to the fact that we could sit and watch Mark O'Mara perform impressions of various parties involved in the State vs. Zimmerman case for hours and be left begging for more.

44. Bring Back Toon Disney

Back in 1998, Disney Channel started to make this as their spin-off channel where they play cartoons which is called Toon Disney.

Ever since I was little, I'd used to watch this all the time when they played Bonkers, Tamone & Pumba, Winnie The Pooh, Jungle Cubs, Darkwing Duck, 101 Dalmatians: The Animated Series, The Little Mermaid, Donald's Quack Attack, Goof Troop, The Might Ducks, TaleSpin, Adventures of Sonic The Hedgehog, Marsupilami, Alladin, ect.

Toon Disney was so awesome back when the shows they played were more than desent. They were incredible. Now it makes me sick now that it's gone, thanks to Disney XD. It has some good shows on it but it just doesn't feel the same anymore.

I just want the old Toon Disney back. Because you know what they say: "Home for All Your Favorite Disney Characters."

You'll understand when you watch this video:

45. Restore WIN TV Canberra produced and presented local news

WIN TV has downgraded its Canberra local news service by not replacing its news and sports anchors. All Canberra local news bulletins are now produced and broadcast from Wollongong by people who may have no links with our city.

The Tuggeranong Community Council believes this will eventually have an impact on the quality of news coverage in the Canberra region.

The TCC fears it will also lead to the closure of the WIN Newsroom in the National Capital with all news production coming from Wollongong.

46. Don't Axe 'Packed to The Rafters' Yet!

Channel 7 have decided that after 6 seasons, It's time to cancel their hit show 'Packed to the Rafters'.

We, the fans believe that this is a dumb move. We all still love the show and there are plenty of aspects the show hasn't touched upon yet. E.g - Cancer.

47. Save the Adaptation of Lauren Oliver's Delirium Trilogy

We, the undersigned, are disappointed by FOX Television's decision not to order the Delirium series, based on Lauren Oliver's brilliant trilogy, and ask that the network not allow its outstanding potential to go to waste.

The Delirium novel was a New York Times Bestseller that also reached #4 on the NYT Series List following the release of the final book of the trilogy, Requiem. It was named Best Teen Book and Best YA Novel of 2011 (So Far) by Amazon, on top of Best Fiction nominations from The American Library Association and The Young Adult Library Services Association. The books have also found international acclaim, winning the prestigious Le Grand Prix de L'Imaginaire in France and the Buxtehude Bull in Germany, both in 2012.

More than that, the Delirium trilogy is a beautiful story of love, youth, and the human condition that seamlessly infuses action and politics to create an astonishingly original world. It has a devoted fanbase across the social networks, many of whom have organized or taken part in campaigns to "Spread the Deliria". We did so because we were profoundly touched by the books and thrilled at the prospect of a film or television adaptation.

We respectfully disagree with the decision not to further adapt the series at this time and ask that FOX consider an alternative means of adapting the series or sell the rights to someone who would be willing to give the story another shot, rather than allowing this profound tale to sit idle on the shelves indefinitely.

Delirium and its fandom deserve a worthy adaptation.

48. Mandate a disclaimer for counter productive "educational" children's shows

Children under 2 years of age gain no cognitive developmental benefits from television, regardless of content. Help us in providing this critical information that will benefit the estimated 148.8 million parents in the United States.

We strive to accomplish this goal by pushing legislation to mandate a disclaimer delivering these findings to the guardians of our future generation. In response to the American Academy of Pediatrics' recommendation that children under two should be discouraged from watching television at all, and a study showing that only 6% of parents are aware of that recommendation (while 49% of parents think educational videos like Baby Einstein™ are very important in the intellectual development of children), for the betterment of society, we, the undersigned, are actively demanding that the F.C.C. publicize this information at the beginning of aforementioned programming.

One of the most prominent figures in researching early development and television usage, Dr. Dimitri Christakis confidently says, "The more videos they watched, the fewer words they knew. These babies scored about 10% lower on language skills than infants who had not watched these videos."

With the amount of conclusive evidence on the issue, and the given percentage of ignorance, it is not only in our best interest to educate, but neglectful, and arguably abusive, to sit idly by.

49. Bring back Penn & Teller: Bullshit!

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! was a television gem in the true sense of the word.

Not only was it engaging and entertaining, it changed the way that people thought about themselves, their actions, their morals, their fears, and the meaning of it all.

50. Renew Malibu Country for another season

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.

51. Brown About Town

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

52. Canine Buffet Cooking Show

Our idea is for the show to encompass the a dog food or treat recipe, a segment for skills and tricks they can teach their dogs for fun or for helpfulness, a segment for informational interviews with people such as State Veterinarians (they can talk about the different dog laws in their states), USDA (tips and rules for travelling in and out of the US), Dog Scouts of America (their mission, their beginning and latest news), Service Animal Organizations, Therapy Dog Organizations, American Kennel Club, Dog Obedience Clubs, Agility Clubs, Flyball Groups, Frisbee Groups, Various Town Officials on the dog laws in their towns (beaches, dog parks, etc) and many more to come.

53. Bring back The Mob Doctor

For many years television shows have been regulated and taken off the air because broadcasting companies have followed the Nielson rating system with only includes the number of people watching a show while it is being broadcasted. Anyone with a DVR or internet streaming knows that these ratings are often off by at least two million viewers or more.

Sign this petition to help bring back the television show The Mob Doctor. This petition will remain open until two months prior to 2013 fall television schedule unless they have announced a renewal by then.

Need a minimum of one million signatures above the end of season rating to have an effect.

54. Don't Kill The Crew!

Hitter, Hacker, Grifter, Thief, Brains... Don't break up the crew!

55. Bring the focus back on the animals, Animal Planet!

Recently, or perhaps a little longer than that by now, Animal Planet has been taking the focus off of the animals and onto people, using "surprisingly human" as their slogan. In many of these shows, animals have been displaced out of the spot light and become co-stars to humans, which doesn't sound like much of an 'animal planet' to me.

Literally every other channel in existence is about humans, animal planet is suppose to be the one place we can do to, to see something different.

I want the Animal Planet of my childhood back!

56. Abolish the Electoral College

We need to ABLISH THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE! Not because Barack Obama won, but because it has happened 4 other times.

The Electoral College was good back in the day before there was television, radio and social media. People, then, elected others who were more informed to vote for them. This is now out-of-date because of technological advances making almost anyone more informed. This will force canidates to get in front of more rural communities than favoring more urban areas. Everyone else is voted in because of the popular vote; Why not the President!? This makes eveyone's voice count instead of them feeling like it doesn't!


57. Get Michael Barrymore back on TV

Michael Barrymore was and is one of the greatest entertainers of all time.

Times are tough these days and we need someone to put the smiles back on people's faces.

We need Michael Barrymore back on TV where he belongs.

58. Stop Malema Television Coverage

The media hype focussed on Julius Malema is detracting the nation from addressing the real problems in South Africa.

The media, and in particular television, ascribes a huge amount of coverage to the actions of Malema to such a point of exclusion of all other key role players with regard to matters of vital importance to the social balance in South Africa. It is of vital importance that a form of balance is introduced and that other leaders may also be heard.

We quote the words of Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula during an SABC radio interview broadcast:
"You can't just go on and on and on, and be going around mobilising funeral gatherings and agitating people to become ungovernable," she said.

She was reacting to Malema's plans to address members of the SA National Defence Force in Lenasia, Johannesburg on Wednesday.

"What are the consequences? I wish I knew. What I do know is that any responsible citizen in South Africa cannot associate him or herself with a person who wants to agitate and mobilise members of the SANDF against the state because they have concerns," said Mapisa-Nqakula. As quoted in

59. Stop the Blackout of WTHR to Dish Network

Dispatch Broadcasting wants to charge Dish Network a 350%+ price increase to carry their channels! Dish refuses to pass that fee on to their customers so they have declined Dispatch broadcasting's offer and now Dispatch Broadcasting has blacked out WTHR, Indianapolis' NBC affiliate.

Dispatch Broadcasting and WTHR claim that the consumers aren't losing out because we can acquire their signal for free with a digital antenna. This is NOT true as many people, including myself, get every channel but WTHR! They also claim that we can stream it online, and yes we can, but I for one am hearing impaired and there are no captioning options for streaming live TV.

Dispatch Broadcasting is putting greed over providing for their loyal viewers. They may be trying to punish Dish Network, but in the end its only the customers who lose out!

Dispatch Broadcasting runs free over the air channels and wants a huge price increase for a FREE channel! These channels are filled with commercials and advertisement which should MORE than provide enough income for them!

60. Get Ellen to Dunellen

Dunellen, a small town in New Jersey, was incorporated on October 28, 1887.

Nicknamed the "Railroad Town," Dunellen started as a train stop and grew into the square-mile quintessentially American blue-collar town it is today. Sir Thomas Lipton lived here as a teen, boxer Bob Fitzsimmons walked his pet lion downtown, and resident Christian Schepflin brought the sport of lawn bowling back to America.

Currently, Dunellen is home to a world-class table tennis center run by a former U.S. Olympian, an ice hockey rink frequented by Jersey Devils team members, and one of the first dine-in movie theaters in the country. Although it is one of the smallest towns in NJ, it has a respected school system and numerous championship sports programs. Its annual Halloween parade is one of the oldest, continuous parades in the country.

Dunellen is centrally located in Middlesex County on the borders of Union and Somerset counties. It shares a zip code with Green Brook, home of "Jerseylicious" Gatsby Salon. Dunellen is on the New Jersey Transit Raritan Valley Line and has several bus lines going to NYC.

How did Dunellen get its name? There are several stories. The most accepted is that it was named after Ellen Betts, a family friend of John Taylor Johnston, owner of the Jersey Central Railroad. It is the only town in the United States with this name.

Dunellen is turning 125 on October 28, 2012.
