Moonlight questions in Ask Ausiello column today

Ask Ausiello, on TV Guide's website, has two mentions of Moonlight today. We had three in Matt Roush's column on Monday, and now this. Great job of keeping our show in the news! Many shows that are canceled are forgotten almost instantly. We are not letting that happen to Moonlight :) Thank you!

In one of his answers, Michael Ausiello asks for votes as PETA's Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity Poll. Hmmmmm..... how about an exchange? He continues talking about Moonlight and we vote for him?! *grin*

Jenny asks him about the Sci-Fi network picking up our show. The answer, no to new episodes, maybe to rebroadcasting the completed 16 episodes. Just remember that as he has said himself, he gives us "scoop" that is sometimes right & sometimes not. Rumors and behind the scenes chatter that he hears from various sources. For example.... When the Writer's Strike was wrapping up, Ausiello (& other tv reporters) were saying no new Moonlight episodes til this Fall. BUT... we ended up getting 4 new episodes in May.

We agree on this ~ KEEP FIGHTING!

Ask Ausiello

Question : I voted for you on the PETA's Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity poll (like I do every year). Does that earn me some scoop on Moonlight? I heard that the CW might do something with it. What are the odds it will actually happen? — Marie

Ausiello : Thanks Marie for reminding everyone that my annual campaign to win PETA's SV honors has begun anew! As you'll recall, Kevin Eubanks edged me out at the 11th hour last year due to Jay Leno's shameless Tonight Show stumping. Help me avoid a repeat of that embarrassing fiasco by circulating this link to your friends/family and their friends and family with the following instructions: Vote for Ausiello! I don't think my enormous ego faint heart can withstand another crushing defeat. Now, what was your question Marie? Moonlight on the CW? Ain't happening. Sorry. But please, don't let that affect your vote! Would an endorsement from Alex O'Loughlin help? 'Cause I can probably make that happen.

Question : Mike, you've missed some serious Moonlight grieving, especially from me. Please tell me there is some truth to the rumors that the Sci Fi channel may be interested in picking up Moonlight. — Jenny

Ausiello : It's half true. Sci Fi passed on picking up new episodes, but there's still a chance it could air existing episodes. Short story shorter: Keep
fighting!

At first I was a bit depressed because it had already occured to me that SciFi (or any of the other, less-wealthy channels) might only be able to manage repeats. On rethinking though I realized (a) that info could be wrong and (b) even if true, it might give Moonlight the chance to show a new channel its potential with the existing ~8m viewers and even gain new ones... thus creating an environment where new episodes could result after an initial "repeats only" pick up. I hope. I am going to "keep fighting" anyway!

I remember when we were told that Moonlight was relatively cheap to produce, and now, all of a sudden, it is too expensive for anyone! What gives---which is true?I find this point interesting---I hope it is not just an excuse to shut us (the fans) up--"not our fault---we want Moonlight but we just can't afford it!"
