TV Fans Have Their "Eyes" on ABC -- and Rally to Save Show

May, 2005


Called "Smart," "Sexy," "Dazzling," and "Stylish," ABC's "Eyes" has garnered the kinds of rave reviews most shows can only dream of. So when it comes to drama, television fans have their "Eyes" on ABC. Worried that the acclaimed new midseason drama (which airs after "Alias" at 10 p.m. on ABC) may not get the time it needs to develop into a hit, television fans have already begun to rally to save the show, launching a new "Save ‘Eyes'" campaign and website at www.Saveeyes.com. In addition, in an unprecedented move, "Eyes" fans are also promising to do their part for ratings, with a new petition at Petitiononline (http://www.petitiononline.com/SaveEyes/petition.html) in which each fan promises to keep watching "Eyes" -- and commits to getting at least three other separate audience members to watch the show as well.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2005 -- When it comes to drama, television fans have their "Eyes" on ABC. Worried that the acclaimed new midseason drama (which airs after "Alias" at 10 p.m. on ABC) may not get the time it needs to develop into a hit, television fans have already begun to rally to save the show, launching a new "Save ‘Eyes'" campaign and website at www.Saveeyes.com.

Called "Smart," "Sexy," "Dazzling," and "Stylish," ABC's "Eyes" has garnered the kinds of rave reviews most shows can only dream of. Some of the nation's top critics are raving about "Eyes" -- from Variety, to The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, USA Today, The Hollywood Reporter, Entertainment Weekly, CNN, The Chicago Sun-Times, and dozens more. Commented The New York Daily News, "Daly's Harlan is the most playfully lovable private eye since Bruce Willis burst onto the scene as David Addison in ‘Moonlighting.'"

But while "Eyes" made a critical splash on ABC in its midseason debut, its ratings (fair, but not spectacular, to date) demonstrated that it's a show that will need a little momentum to build into a bona fide hit for the network. "Eyes" has been averaging 8-9 million viewers in its 10 p.m. Wednesday timeslot (solid numbers against CBS's CSI: New York), and with a 3.1 rating among the coveted demographic of adults 18-49 -- a 29 percent improvement over last year's figures in the same timeslot.

TV fans at "Save Eyes" have therefore founded the "Save our Show" campaign to rally fans -- and network executives -- to give the show a chance. Led by consultant Cynthia Smith, webmaster Brooke Cradic, entertainment publicist Angela Mitchell, and many more, the new coalition of fans is already embarking on an intensive letter-writing campaign to Stephen McPherson at ABC, in addition to a host of other proven "Save our Show" tasks, including upcoming full-page advertisements in trade papers like Variety and The Hollywood Reporter (donations are being taken now via Paypal to e-mail protected from spam bots).

In addition, in an unprecedented move, "Eyes" fans are also promising to do their part for ratings, with a new petition at Petitiononline (http://www.petitiononline.com/SaveEyes/petition.html) in which each fan promises to keep watching "Eyes" -- and commits to getting at least three other separate audience members to watch the show as well.

The new "Eyes" SOS website launched by fans can be found at www.SaveEyes.com. Fans interested in taking part in the campaign can e-mail e-mail protected from spam bots, sign the petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/SaveEyes/petition.html, or take part in the SOS campaign forums found at www.Sarkgasm.com (Forums, Television, Eyes).

About "Eyes"
From the executive producer of "Fastlane" and the co-creator of the much-analyzed "Profit" comes "Eyes," the suspenseful one-hour, midseason drama series full of risks, bluffs, blackmail and intrigue.

Run by sharp-witted, impulsive Harlan Judd (Tim Daly), Judd Risk Management is a discreet, high-tech firm that handles cases with the highest possible stakes, while operating at the absolute fringe of the law. Along with ruthlessly efficient Nora Gage (Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon) and a staff of brilliantly skilled, driven individuals -- some with their own agendas and secrets -- Harlan does whatever it takes to prevail in a world of unsteady alliances and uncertain loyalties.

"Eyes" stars Tim Daly ("Wings") as Harlan Judd, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon ("NYPD Blue," "The Jamie Foxx Show") as Nora Gage, A.J. Langer ("My So Called Life") as Meg Bardo, Laura Leighton ("Melrose Place") as Leslie Town, Eric Mabius ("Resident Evil," "The L Word") as Jeff McCann, Rick Worthy ("Collateral Damage") as Chris Didion and Natalie Zea ("The Shield") as Trish Agermeyer.

Created and executive-produced by John McNamara ("Fastlane," "Profit"), "Eyes" is a McNamara Paper Products production in association with Warner Bros. Television.
