121. Bring On The Max Keiser Show, 10.35pm, Friday Nights, BBC One

After Jonathan Ross's evacu-nation of the hotseat, there is a vacancy for a post-watershed, sailing-close-to-the-wind, edgy, zeitgeist-driven programme of music and discussion on BBC One on Friday nights. With added intelligence.

Who better, in these times of financial and economic austerity, than Paris and London emigre from Uncle Sam, MAX KEISER?

122. 24 Hour Shark Programming on Discovery Shark Week 2009

Contrary to previous years, Shark Week 2008 aired on the Discovery Channel in small night-time blocks.

Many agree the driving factor that made Shark Week so attractive is having interesting programming available at in time during the course of a day.

123. Abolish The Satellite Home Viewer Extenstion and Reauthorization Act

On December 1, 2006, a federal court judge ordered a permanent injunction against EchoStar (owners of Dish Network) from delievering distant network signals of ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC from New York and Los Angeles. This made customers who lived in rural areas or don't get locals on satellite upset. DirecTV wasn't affected.

We think that the Satellite Home Viewer Extenstion and Reauthorization Act (SHVERA) is unfair and unconstitional. We have dual feeds of Nickelodeon and Disney Channel, but why not ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX. In Canada, satellite providers like BellExpressVU and StarChoice offered distant network feeds from the American Networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox) from either Boston and Seattle, and Canadian TV stations from all over Canada which is included, but why not here in the United States.

We think the federal law that you can't get a another market's locals (i.e. If you lived in Chicago, and wanted to see the Los Angeles stations, but it's against federal law) is totally unfair and unconstitional. It's time the Federal Judge needs to reconsider his permanent injuntion decision and reinstate the distant local feeds (From New York City and Los Angeles) to Dish Network.

Also, write to your congressman, senators, the Federal Communications Commssion, the National Assoication of Broadcasters, or even the President of the United States that the SHVERA law is unfair. It's time that the federal law should be changed for the better.

125. Brigitte Stavaruk was unfairly evicted from Big Brother

Tonight Big Brother 2008 - voted off Brigitte Stavaruk Most Popular housemater on Big Brothers Polls - of over 7 weeks.

Brigitte Stavaruk was evicted from the Big Brother house, minutes before Pamela Anderson went into the house.

There have been rumours asking why Rory Ammon wasn't evicted!!!! Is it because they consider the entertainment of Pamela Anderson and Rory to be viable!!!

Rory was voted the least popular housemate on the polls and was sure to go!!!!

Australia has nominated Rory at least 3 times trying to get rid of him, with him being the second most popular to go in percentages in the last eviction.

Why has our most favourite housemate gone? and the least favourite stayed? just because Pamela Anderson has gone in.

Please sign your name if you think Brigitte was unfairly evicted and if you think the voting system was rigged!!!!!!

126. Release BBC Comedy Drama 'Rescue Me' to DVD

This petition is in the hope that the BBC and Tiger Aspect Productions will release the romantic comedy television drama 'Rescue Me' starring Sally Phillips to DVD, shown on BBC 1 in 2002. This programme may appeal to fans of 'Love Soup', another romantic comedy drama made by the BBC which is on DVD, because of the same genre and for people who did not see the original transmission will finally have an opportunity to see it.

Though the programme may not of received the ratings it aimed for, the programme might still be of interest for people who are fans of the actors/actresses, such as Sally Phillips ('Smack The Pony' & 'Clare in the Community'), Oliver Chris ('Green Wing'), Stewart Wright ('Doc Martin') and James Lance ('I'm Alan Partridge' & 'The Book Group').

So if you are a fan of romantic comedies or of the comedians/comediennes taking part, please do sign up. Thank you.

127. Support Durham Public-Access Television & Community Media Center

Recent changes in state legislation have opened an opportunity for Durham to have its own Community Media Center and Public Access Television channel. We are the first major city in North Carolina to take advantage of the new legislative promise to invest and support local media and community technology access and training.

For the last decade, Durham Public Access has been managed by Time Warner Cable because previous laws required them to do so. The result was that the channel did not meet the needs of the community or fulfill its potential as a true accountable, community-driven operation. Durham now has an opportunity to change this dynamic and create a public-access television channel and community media center which would be truly reflective of its culture and diversity.

Public-access television was developed to provide local and diverse content to programming on cable systems. Functioning like a soapbox for communities, programming ranges from local news, events and entertainment, to inspirational, youth-oriented, and educational shows. The need today is even greater with the loss of locally owned and operated television, radio and newspapers due to media conglomeration.

Besides offering space (and a voice) on the cable line up, Community Media Centers provide training, access to equipment and facilities, and serves to build community through the production of media. Nationally, Community Media Centers and Public Access programmers produce 20,000 hours of new programs per week – more new programming than all the broadcast networks combined.

There is no one model for a Public-Access Television and Community Media Center; each reflects the needs of that particular community. However, one thing is consistent - they advocate for and maintain tools for creating media, provide media services and create venues for sharing community voices and showcasing creativity. Through technology, they provide a space to communicate in ways that are not available through traditional outlets.

128. Help get Victory Waters SPEAKS! on Syndication & Satellite

Victory Waters is an amazingly talented radio personality based out of Atlanta, GA. She started her own show with the understanding that a voice from her sex, generation and ethnic background needed to be heard.

After working in various television and radio organizations, Victory bought her own professional equipment and started broadcasting via the internet.

Interviewing celebrities, speaking with the average person, and getting informed with industry experts (physicians, attorneys, entrepreneurs, religious leaders, politicians) is what makes Victory Waters' show so unique. Never scripted it is raw but funny - informative yet entertaining.

HER NEXT MOVE? The big leagues!

129. hana kimi japan season 2

We all know that the Manga series created by Hisaya Nakajo is very popular, that's why Fuji Tv and CTS created a television series of this famous manga series.

Actually I know that the television series aired were very much watched in different countries and places. And now I am asking for your kind consideration to create a season 2 of both series.

130. Dedicated Motorsport channel in NZ!

Motorsport in New Zealand has a huge fan base, but is considered to be 'second fiddle' to most other sports such as Rugby, Cricket and Netball. Even though Motorsport was the 2nd most watch sport after rugby in New Zealand it still doesn't get the footage it deserves.

If Sky had a dedicated Motorsport channel then we would see an improvement in the quality of motorsport coverage in NZ and also a boost to the people competing in NZ and overseas.

131. Bring back It's A Knockout!!

We all remember the great fun that It's A Knockout was. I am making this petition in the hope that we can bring back the awesomeness!

It's A Knockout that's the nameeee of the gameeeee!!

132. BBC Whitewashes Tibet

In 2008 the BBC shamefully broadcast, 'A Year in Tibet', as Tibetans, who took to the streets and demanded independence for their nation, were being gunned down by Chinese security forces.



Covert Photograph of Tibetans Shot at Ngaba-16th March 2008

"Eight dead bodies brought into Ngaba Kirti Monastery according to confirmed information received by the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy. The bodies were brought in from the protest scene in Ngaba, Kham (so-called Sichuan Province). Sources say at least "30 Tibetans felled" after armed troops shot indiscriminately into the peacefully protesting Tibetans." (Released By TCHRD-Sunday, March 16, 2008 19:35]

Mr Richard Klein, BBC commissioned Mosaic Films and Sevenstones Media to produce 'A Year in Tibet', which BBC Four first screened at 21.00 on 6th March 2008, the final episode shown on 3rd April.



The series was produced and written by Mr. Peter Firstbrook. The locational Director was Ms. Sun Shuyun, a Chinese writer and film-maker. The film claims to be an 'observational documentary', following a year in the life of Gyantse, Tibet's third largest town.

The contents and style of this programme portray a seemingly contented and thriving culture, untouched it would appear by the odious excesses of Communist Chinese occupation. It is a troubling achievement for a film crew to document daily living in such circumstances, yet fail to include any reference to the cultural and political oppression, which has operated inside Tibet since China's invasion in 1950.

The timing of this series too was curious, coming just several months before Beijing launched the 2008 Olympic Games, an event which attracted international concern and oppostion relating to China's appalling human rights record, and its brutal suppression of the Tibetan and Uyghur people.

Such political realities do not feature in 'A Year in Tibet', which carefully avoids any issues of sensitivity by assembling a stereotypical and idyllic image of life inside Tibet. Internationally there is genuine and widespread concern at the plight of Tibet. Such opinion will be surprised and disappointed to note a film which lacks fundamental journalistic standards, such as balance, independence, accuracy and critique.

In 2009 the communist Chinese regime allowed it to be screened across China, thus confirming the film's propagana credentials. More here: http://tibettruth.wordpress.com/2009/07/19/communist-china-to-screen-bbc-whitewash-of-tibet/

134. Bring Back Unsolved Mysteries

Unsolved Mysteries television show needs to return with new episodes so that it can help the families of missing persons.

135. keep one tree hill on tuesday

oth should stay on tuesday night there is no reason for it to move pluse HOUSE is being moved to monday so if anything oth will do better if it stays on tuesday

136. Help Resurrect LA FEMME NIKITA

La Femme Nikita was an exceptional espionage/spy drama that premiered on the USA cable network from January 1997 to March 2001. It was adapted for television by Joel Surnow from the original French film of the same title and ran for five consecutive seasons. During that time, it was the highest rated drama on cable television, and it went on to become a cult classic with viewers around the world.

As a weekly serial drama, La Femme Nikita was original and ahead of its time. The unique, innovative style of the show influenced numerous other television series and movies that followed. Revolving around complex moral and ethical dilemmas, it was intelligent, sophisticated, and darkly beautiful. For many, the fascination and genius of La Femme Nikita was its dark tone of modern minimalism and its unprecedented style of character development.

The program was of such outstanding caliber that there has never been another like it...before or since. La Femme Nikita has been profoundly missed and has left a void that no other program has filled. Thousands of individuals identified with the show on a deeply personal level and felt it became a part of their lives. On a global level, people passionately love it and have remained dedicated life-long fans.

Following a campaign in the summer of 2000 to save the series from cancellation, the devoted audience was given the gift of eight additional episodes. However, fans of this riveting and darkly engrossing drama were left with an unsatisfactory open-ending. Many viewers of the show felt they were denied closure and will never feel like complete resolution has been achieved until Michael and Nikita are reunited.

After seven years absence, the fans feel the return of La Femme Nikita would reward them for their loyalty and faithfulness, update them on the lives of the characters, and provide a positive and cathartic closure to a much beloved story.

137. Fussbroichs-Folgen im TV wiederholen

Das WDR-Fernsehen produzierte in den 1990er Jahren eine Dokumentation der Kölner Arbeiterfamilie Fussbroich.

138. Kid Nation 2

Preceding the premier of "Kid Nation", there was several claims of child abuse/child exploitation and worries about child labor. These are preposterous.

As for child labor, the kids could leave at anytime they wished. They also had to willfully participate, because as a few of the kids had shown, if they didn't work they were not forced to do it.

Also, can anyone seriously believe a powerful network, with everything to lose, would allow children to be harmed during the filming, and not provide immediate care? It would be better then what they could get at home!

139. Bring Back the Playdays TV Show!

Sign this petition to bring back the 1990's TV show 'Playdays'.

It was a fun and very educational children's tv show, it was my favourite show when i was little, it is full of bright colours, puppets, and of course 'Rosie' / 'Rosey' the magical merry-go-round.

A favourite traditional children's tv show that should return.

140. Australian Television: Remove Sickening Quit Smoking Ads

Quit Smoking ads have gone from deterring smokers to sickening the rest of the community.

The scenes shown in these commercials would most likely be cut if they were part of a show or movie on television.

141. Bring Back Digimon

This petition has been set up to bring back the original series of digimon onto television.

It was a massive success back in the 90s and i know many people that want to see it back on TV.

The new series, to be fair is not that good, and most of the digimon series were put onto sky. Bring back digimon.

142. Return Gabby to Strictly Come Dancing

The the result this most recent Saturday was appalling.

I believe that Kate should withdraw and allow Gabby to return to the show, or at least the latter alone.

143. (Fans Urge) Warner Home Video To Create Milestone in Television Animation DVD Releases

When the Paramount company released for the first time to a new public Charles Schulz’s well-remembered and beloved “Peanuts” animations on DVD media, they were not able to explore the technology options that were available to them. These include music-only tracks (without dialogue) that could spotlight the imaginative work of composer and jazz pianist, Vince Guaraldi, a highly unique and valuable contributor to American culture, who helped shape this legacy for many generations of viewers and listeners here and abroad, and whose true artistic range traversing traditional jazz to rock and electronic styles from the 1960’s through 1970’s is not yet fully appreciated.

We also call attention to the fact that in the past Fantasy/Concord Music Group, who is the holder for Mr. Guaraldi’s “Peanuts” recordings, was unable to secure original master tapes that could make a satisfactory release of Mr. Guaraldi’s early animation music as a CD (even though an abridged release did eventually come about).

We know, that the search for master tapes for the "Peanuts" shows such as "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" is of high interest to everyone, and we are also of the belief that such materials may be located and secured for use in these new DVD's, if a wide initiative is made by Warner Home Video.

144. How homosexuals are perceived by heterosexuals in television shows

I am studying how Homosexuals are perceived by Heterosexuals in television shows.

This is really important to me and my course that I join websites like this to gain infomation on the views of people I don't know so whether you have a positive or negative comment to make please make yourself heard.

Please help me, Thanks.

145. Keep showings of "The Snowman" to Christmas Eve

Twenty five years ago, Channel Four started in Great Britain. On Christmas Eve 1982, the animated film "The Snowman" premiered on Channel Four, and has been shown every year since.

In recent years Channel Four has seen it fit to move The Snowman around in the Christmas schedules, showing it either on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and sometimes even Boxing Day, whereas if it was kept in it's original and traditional slot it would gain a much bigger audience than it would on another day.

If you feel The Snowman is more suited to an afternoon teatime slot on Christmas Eve, and feel it should be in that slot this year to celebrate it's 25th anniversary, and should remain in that slot permanently, then please sign this petition, which will be forwarded on to Channel 4 at the end of October.

146. AIRWAVES FOR YOUTH

There are many senseless and irrelevant programs being broadcasted on the radio and television in the metropolitan area where the crime rate is outrageously high.

I think that Radio One should cut some programs and devote at least one hour to the youth. Allowing them to call the station and express themselves about what's going on in there community, schools, and personal situations.

A counselor of some sort would also be available to answer questions and give advice. I also believe that BET should bring Teen Summit back. It would also be a good way for teens to receive information and speak on certain issues such as sex,gang violence,and STD's.

WPGC is my favorite radio station but I have an issue with them. They speak on violence in the city every chance they get but why not open up the lines for the youth to call in and express themselves. We have all these senseless programs on the radio but the biggest issue is left unattended.

I also have a big problem with my favorite television station BET. Who like I said about WPGC have discussed youth violence but where is the shows like Teen Summit? We need these programs back in the lives of the youth so there’s space and a place to air out issues. If we don’t reach out to our youth we will never know what’s really bothering them.

Thanks,

Steven Davis Jr.

147. Get TNA onto Australian TV

There is a lot of following for Wrestling in Australia and there are a lot of people that wish for TNA to be shown on Australian TV other countries have the show why not Australia.

Foxtel has the rights to air the WWE so why not try harder to get the rights to show the TNA weekly show as well as the Pay Per Views.

148. Bring Back A*mazing to Australian Television

Back In 1994, James Sherry hosted this children's game show, Called 'A*mazing' where contestants play for their schools.

Teams consist of two players, who take part in spelling challenges before venturing into one of two mazes, to hunt for letters which make up the word they've just figured out. The letters are hidden among many obstacles and confusing paths.

Towards the end of the show there is a deciding match of Super Nintendo's Mario Kart to see which team will play the final round. The finale consists of keys instead of letters, inside the maze. The more keys the players find, the more points their school gets. (One of which is the "bonus key" and will win the players an extra prize.)

At the end of the 5 day week, the school with the most over all points takes home the major prize. There was no doubt that this was a popular show and that James Sherry was a great host, so why did it get taken off the air?

149. Cosby Show Reunion

Bill Cosby has always been a comic genius and his Cosby Show program was loved by millions.

Let's get the Huxtable family back together so we can see what our favorite characters and actors are up to today, twenty years later!

150. Brian Dunkleman Hosting The "Price Is Right"

An overview of Brian Dunkleman's past, as documented in Wikipedia:

"Brian Dunkleman (born September 25, 1971 in Ellicottville, New York) is a comedian and actor, best known for co-hosting the first season of American Idol on the Fox Network with Ryan Seacrest.

He has appeared on 'The Tonight Show', had a recurring guest role on 'Two Guys and a Girl', played a stand-up comic suspected of murder in 'NYPD Blue', voiced himself in an episode of 'The Proud Family', in which the show parodied American Idol, did voices for the animated 3 South, and is acting in an independent film called 'Comedy Hell.' He also had a small role on an episode of Friends as the man who buys the engagement ring Chandler wants to buy Monica. He recently was a co-host with Eric the Midget on 'The Idol Re-cap Show' on Sirius' Howard 101. He now does voice over for American Idol Rewind.

Dunkleman began doing stand up comedy in 1992, winning the 'Buffalo’s Funniest New Comedian Contest.' Since then he’s also performed at HBO’s US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, NBC’s 'Late Friday,' and TBS's 'Very Funny at the Laugh Factory.' He's also acted in pilots for ABC and 20th Century FOX and guest-starred on the late night talk show 'Talk Show with Spike Feresten', 'The Ghost Whisperer', & 'Las Vegas'.

Brian can also be seen doing stand up regularly in Los Angeles at the Laugh Factory and Improv, and he makes regular appearances as the host of 'Family Feud Live' in Las Vegas and Atlantic City for Fremantle Media."

As the latter states, Dunkleman has experience in hosting major television shows in primetime ('American Idol'), should "The Price Is Right" ever alter time slots. Dunkleman also has experience hosting game shows ('Family Feud Live'), and is well-qualified to host a televised game show. Lastly, he has appeared on other popular television shows (i.e. 'Friends', 'The Tonight Show', 'The Proud Family'), that could extend the viewing demographics, and increase, ultimately, the Nielsen ratings of the show. In my humble opinion, Brian Dunkleman is the right host for "The Price Is Right".
