LESS THAN CLASSY

Two of the main characters from the ABC Sitcom, "Less Than Perfect" sent out emails to all their friends to help save the office based comedy.

Desparate hours! ABC hasn't renewed the show yet. So why not write to everyone you know to get them to watch your show.





Dear all,

I know you've gotten a couple of mass emails from us recently, but none is as important as this.

After a brief hiatus, Less Than Perfect is back on the air, and we need to get the word out to everyone.

As the season winds down and there is still no word on a pickup for next year, now is the most crucial time to have strong viewership. Please, please, please, tune in on Tuesday (ABC 9:30pm, 8:30 central) and forward this email to everyone you know.

Thanks for your continued support. Every TV counts.

Sara and Mischa

PS - And if you're so inclined don't hesitate to write a letter to the president of ABC, explaining why you think Less Than Perfect is the best show on television.

To EVERYONE in my address book,

Yes EVERYONE. Don't think I'm a total a-hole just yet for sending you a mass email... This one's kinda important (but not really, in the grand scheme of things).

That TV show that I'm on, the one where I play the wacky neighbor / cheeky co-worker, yeah well that show is coming back on the air this Tuesday Night on ABC (9:30, 8:30 central 4/27/04) after a month-long hiatus (the network wanted to test out some show about gay in-laws in our time slot for a while). Anyway, that gay show is back on ABC's "Totally Gay Wednesday Family TV Night of Laughs and Gays and Fun! - TGWFTVNLGF!" and we're back on for the "May Sweeps" ratings period.

See, here's the thing, a few of us in the cast (not me so much) thought that it would be a great idea to let our close friends and family (EVERYONE in our address books) know that the show is back on the air tomorrow night. Anyway, we're a super-tight bunch and where just one goes, we all go (except for when just one of us goes somewhere cool on ABC's dime or to rehab for a while... then it's just the rest of us) so we're ALL emailing our close friends and family (EVERYONE in our address books) to let them know that "the single-funniest show NOT about gay people in America" is back on the air! WAHOO! Well, there is one gay on the show (not me), but you'll have to tune to find out who! (not me)

Past that, I want to thank you, whomever you are, for being in my life for what ever reason that would require that I have your email address. And again, please don't feel slighted for not receiving a more personal email from me. This email is the same one that my dear parents will be receiving, as well as a guy who did some crappy brick work on my home so if you're between those two parties, you're alright with me!

Here's the email that Sara Rue (star of "Less Than Perfect") sent out to EVERYONE in her address book that better explains... why I'm still sitting at my computer.

Thanks,
Will
