Operation Thank You
It’s going to be a long summer hellatus, but let’s celebrate getting a Season 8!
At the CW Upfronts* on 5/17/2012, CW chief Mark Pedowitz mentioned that he got the most fan mail for renewing Nikita. My first thought? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!
Let’s show the amazing Mr. Pedowitz some fandom love! Not only is he responsible for renewing Supernatural, he made sure that Jared and Jensen were at the Upfronts this year. He also moved the show to Wednesday night to follow what he considers to be the most important new show the network has, Arrow.
Here’s how to let him know how much we appreciate him:
Send a card or letter thanking him for renewing and supporting Supernatural.
Any kind of card or letter will do. One easy option is to visit Snapfish, where you can personalize one with images and text before mailing it directly to his office. I created a custom card using fandom art! It turned out beautifully.
If you do something similar, please credit the artists. On the back of the card there is an option to add something. I handled attribution by listing the work and the artists by adding their deviant art accounts. Here’s how I cited the picture on this post.

*Upfronts: In the North American television industry, an upfront is a meeting hosted at the start of important advertising sales periods by television network executives, attended by the press and major advertisers. It is so named because of its main purpose, to allow marketers to buy television commercial airtime “up front”, or several months before the television season begins. - Wikipedia (We’ll be tweeting those sponsors next season!)
