Dear Mr. Wright,
I would like to take this opportunity to bring to your attention what could be a great opportunity for TNT. As I am sure you are already aware, the program Eleventh Hour was canceled by CBS. Logistically this was a very poor decision, as the program fared higher in the ratings than a multitude of programs that have been renewed on many different networks. This is a television program that has finally raised the bar, giving intelligent people something relevant to tune into. There is a very large audience out there growing increasingly tired of mindless programming that features only gratuitous violence and sex. Eleventh Hour is the show we want to watch.
What makes the show so successful is obvious: it is a collaboration of several impeccable talents.
Both Rufus Sewell and Marley Shelton are extremely talented actors. As the two main characters, both were immediately embraced and have been increasingly loved by fans as the kooky Dr. Hood and his uptight FBI handler, Rachel Young. Rufus, in particular, is a stellar performer and leaves viewers wanting more. The many years of high acclaim and awards he has received, both in film and theater, does not even begin to showcase the high caliber of this actor.
Stephen Gallagher is another reason for the quality and success of Eleventh Hour. As the brilliant creator of the series and also one of it's main writers, we are guaranteed exciting, relevant episodes that actually make people think. Nothing is more satisfying than having actually gained insight and intelligence after viewing an Episode of Eleventh Hour. The involvement of Jerry Bruckheimer Films as the production team, adds the final polish to this stylish show.
This collaboration of talents is the reason Eleventh Hour held onto twelve million viewers every week.
Allow me to elaborate a moment on the steadfast, intelligent viewers and fans of Eleventh Hour. Months ago a few flagship viewers gathered literally thousands of fans, forming an organized front to insure the safety of Eleventh Hour: The Eleventh Hour Renewal Campaign. Literally thousands of people rallied around the show pouring heartfelt letters to CBS daily.
These are very intelligent people, in the course of only one day, I discovered at least three of my fellow Renewal Campaign members are university science undergraduates. I myself am college educated, and I think I speak for many when I make the request that a network carries a show that we, all twelve million of us, would like to watch. It is perplexing as to why CBS blatantly ignored what it's viewers wanted. It defies logic.
We turn now to you.
Please consider picking up Eleventh Hour for a second season. We are certain the program will be a great fit: a quality program on a quality television station.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this request. I have no doubt that Eleventh Hour would be a success and a great asset to TNT.
Fan and Loyal Viewer of Eleventh Hour

Meaning the rumor is from us? Well, either way, we are creating buzz of some sort. I guess I will take that.
