In this era of evil mega-corporations, greed and corruption, one man sticks up for the little guy. That man is Eli Stone and over the course of twelve episodes, he’s risked everything — his career, personal life and reputation to defend those who need most.
But tonight, Eli Stone desperately needs YOUR help. Thanks to mediocre ratings, television’s best new show of 2008 finds itself on the proverbial bubble. So much so that executive producer Greg Berlanti sent out this message [courtesy of E!Online]:
“Marc Guggenheim and I—as well as the cast, crew and other writers—are insanely proud of the show. Like any show, there was a learning curve, and our best episodes are clearly the last four or five. We just hope anyone who wants the show to come back will let that be known to ABC. And thanks so much to you and to all the fans who have reached out. It’s a great show, and it’s been immensely rewarding to have put something so unique and, hopefully, inspiring on the air.”
So I ask you, my fellow TV Addicts. Will you pledge your support to watch tonight’s season finale of ELI STONE? Because only you have the power to ensure quality scripted television can survive against the forces of evil [also known as reality TV]. Together we can make it happen. Yes we can.
