If you follow my Twitter, Facebook or this blog, then you know that I’m a huge fan of King of the Nerds. (The first season actually sparked the creation of this blog!) Well here’s the deal nerds, at this point the show has not been renewed for a third season and quite frankly that is just not okay. I received contact from our King, the awesome Kayla, and she has something she would like me to share with you all!
“Hello to all of my fellow Nerds.
Two weeks ago we said goodbye to the season two nerds and left Curtis and Bobby all alone in the sacred halls of Nerdvana. Today, we are uncertain if there will be a new set of nerds to take the mantle and to once again fill Nerdvana with laughter and battle cries.
At this point, TBS has not decided if there will be a season three of “King of the Nerds”; however, all hope is not lost. We are Nerds and no power in the ‘verse can stop us! Not when we work as a collective. Many of us have asked you to express your love for the show via social media for the last two weeks. Today, I am here to try and unify that effort!
Many Nerds before us have worked as a collective to change the name of the first Space Shuttle. They have teamed up against cancellation to give their beloved crew a chance to fly again. No one can take the sky from us! We are Nerd Strong.
So I have a plan. A “1, 2, 3 – Nerd Punch” plan. The details are below. PLEASE help us show TBS that we are Nerds and we love “King of the Nerds”. There are three simple steps to follow that could help give us all another season!
Remember what the Joker has taught us: It is not about the money, it is about sending a message! We all need to help send this message!
No matter what part of the Nerd Kingdom you call home, I call on all of you to join the Nerd Army! We are Nerd Strong! We want season three!
Kayla LaFrance ~ On2Mars ~ #NerdsRule #NerdArmy #NerdStrong”
(Seriously, how can you not just completely love our new King?!?)
SO HERE’S THE PLAN!!!
Step One: Join the Nerd Army on Twitter and Tweet! There’s even a new profile pic for you to use to show that you are Nerd Strong! (Feel free to use it as your profile pic on all of your social networking sites, by the way.) Several sample Tweets have been provided below, but feel free to write your own and put your own flavor to it, just remember to tag @tbsveryfunny and use #nerdsrule. That is the most important part of using Twitter as a member of the Nerd Army; the second most important is that you send your own Tweets to TBS – everyone loves to be ReTweeted, but we want to show TBS just how many individual nerds want to see a season three.
Hey, @tbsveryfunny, I am a loyal fan of @KingofNerdsTBS and I want to see season three! Please renew the show! #nerdsrule
Please renew #kingofthenerds, @tbsveryfunny! I am a loyal fan and I want to see season three! #nerdsrule
(Personally, I think that there must be a season 3 so that guys can have another shot at winning the Throne of Games. Third times a charm right?)
Step Two: Email! Copy and paste the following message into an email with the provided subject line and send it to email@example.com. It is vitally important that you use the provided subject line! Once your email has been sent, let the entire Nerd Army know by posting on Twitter:
I just emailed @tbsveryfunny to tell them that I WANT S3 of KOTN! #nerdsrule #email
Email Subject Line: We Want S3 of KOTN
Email Message: Hello, TBS. As a loyal fan of TBS and the show King of the Nerds I would like to see King of the Nerds renewed for a third season. Sincerely, <Your Name>
Maybe tell them why you want to see a third season and what the show has meant to you. I personally don’t want to lose a show that celebrates nerds!
Step Three: Snail Mail! Many nerds have come before us and used “snail mail” letter campaigns to move mountains in Hollywood. Does anyone remember a little TV show called Firefly and a little movie called Serenity??? We think most of you do! So let’s go back to our roots and get TBS to grant us a third season of King of the Nerds! And what’s more fun to receive in the mail than a letter? A postcard from where you live to show TBS that we nerds are everywhere! Local postcards are available at most post offices, or try picking one up at a local gas station before you hit up the P.O. for the postage. We’ve also come up with short and simple message for you to write on the back of the postcard but feel free to write your own! We want you to Tweet again once you’ve sent it and have also provided one that you can copy, paste and post.
Send To: TBS Viewer Relations, 1010 Techwood Drive NW, Atlanta, GA30318-5604
Postcard Message: Hi, TBS, My name is <Your Name> and I want to see season three of King of the Nerds! Please renew the show! Thank you! #nerdsrule. (Feel free to include your email if you wish).
I just sent @tbsveryfunny a postcard to tell them that I WANT S3 of KOTN! #nerdsrule #postcard
***ADDITION*** @AstroJon on Twitter made an awesome postcard that you can print out and send to TBS!
And those are the 1, 2, 3 Nerd Punch steps! Pretty easy, right? If you don’t have a Twitter account and don’t want to start one, you can still be an integral part of the Nerd Army! You can also post your “Tweets” to the official King of the Nerds Facebook page or any other social networking site that you use. Just be sure to use the official hashtag #nerdsrule. Also, check out Melissa Corley’s open letter to TBS and if you want to share your own “piece of heart” with TBS to show them how much you love King of the Nerds and why, you can post those open letters in your own blogs, send it as a handwritten letter or an email to TBS or post it to the Facebook page – Or, how about all of those options? I say all of them! If you’ve already changed your profile pic, awesome! But you still have much to do…
Now, get to it, nerds! Into battle we march! Valar dohaeris!
