John From Cincinnati Wants Your Help

"John from Cincinnati" – the HBO show, not this John from Cincinnati – needs your help. Fans of the show want you to sign an online petition at to be sent to HBO. They’re 2,800 short of the 10,000 signature goal set before sending it to HBO executives.

The group also bought a full-page ad in Variety today. The sumer series -- starring Austin Nichols as John Monad, the mysterious stranger who changed the lives of a dysfunctional Southern California surfing family – was canceled in August, soon after its final telecast.

"According to HBO's own numbers, "John from Cincinnati" had 3.8 million viewers, more than enough to continue a less expensive show. We know the numbers are close and the audience is out there within reach. We are gaining momentum, but HBO embracing this effort would really cause things to snowball," says Brian Lucey of Delaware, Ohio. He's on the "Save JFC" committee with viewers from Murray, Ky.; Jackson, N.J.; Phoenix, Ariz; Culpepper, Va.; and Austin, Texas.

The website also lists contact info for HBO executives, and their bosses at Time Warner.
