Fans Rally To Keep Sarah Michelle Gellar's 'Ringer' On The Air

Fans of the CW series "Ringer" have launched a campaign to save the show as network bosses consider axing the drama.
Petitionbuzz.com already has more than 8,000 signatures to keep the show and includes fans from countries including Italy, France, Australia, Canada and Britain.
After taking a break from motherhood, the show's star, Sarah Michelle Gellar, made her small-screen return last fall playing twins in the series opposite Ioan Gruffudd.
"Ringer" received several awards nominations including a People's Choice nod and a win at the Critics' Choice Television Awards. It has a legion of loyal fans, but TV bosses may not renew it for a second season.
Devotees launched an online campaign to persuade CW chiefs to bring Gellar's program back.
A statement posted by petition organizers reads, "We want the CW to grant Ringer a second season. It is your 5th best-selling series on Itunes and has a lot of international fans due to the show's bigger international sales than most of your other shows... It has over 305,000 and growing followers on (entertainment social network) GetGlue. We will support Ringer..."
