Dear Chevrolet,

Let's get straight to the point. 'Awake' is brilliant. It is the perfect mixture of drama, sci-fi and mystery. Exquisite writing, brilliant directing and perfectly cast characters help make it by far and away our favourite show on TV at the moment.

Much to our surprise, 'Awake' was not getting many viewers, and has been predicted by '' to be cancelled by the end of May. We would like to ask you politely and passionately not to give up on this show. It has millions of dedicated fans who tune in to watch it every week. We're sure it would have even more, but 'Awake' faces tough competition. Last week it went up against the premiere of ABC show 'Scandal' and hit show 'The Mentalist', a show which has been going for 4 seasons and has an average of almost 15 million viewers a week. Between its first episode and its latest episode, viewing figures have fluctuated just 3 million, and that is over 90 episodes. It is plain to see that this show has some dedicated fans. How 'Awake' is expected to go up against a show like this and come out on top is beyond me. For the next two weeks, there will be no new episodes of 'The Mentalist'. We predict viewers of 'Awake' will rise significantly. If this shows that the support is there for the show, maybe you could try and give it a chance to compete on a different day or in a different time slot, one where it is not competing against a show which, let's face it, will never be beaten on viewers.

'Awake''s dedicated fans have decided to start a campaign to save our show. We are behind that campaign. Together we will fight and continue to do so, because we know that 'Awake' has a lot of potential, and should not be another show that is cancelled before it is given a chance to shine.
