The Event for The Event, Part 2

It's time for our second The Event for The Event!!! :) This time, we want to expand our circle, still contacting NBCUniversal but to also include Netflix, Syfy & Hulu in the U.S., and ask international fans to contact their networks. This might seem like a lot of work, but believe me, our efforts were noticed last time. Please participate!! :) We must continue to apply the pressure to bring back The Event!

We ask for you to send letters like we did last time. Here are the addresses:

Marc Graboff
President, NBCUniversal West Coast Operations
RE: The Event
3000 W. Alameda
Burbank, CA 91523

Mr. Graboff can be emailed directly at and on Twitter at @mgraboff.

Ted Sarandos
Chief Content Officer
100 Winchester Circle
Los Gatos, CA 95032

Mr. Sarandos can be emailed directly at

Mark Stern
Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Syfy

30 Rockefeller Plaza, 21st Floor
New York, NY 10112

Mr. Stern can be emailed directly at

Andy Forssell
Senior Vice President of Content Acquisition and Distribution
Hulu, LLC
12312 W. Olympic Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90064

I haven't found an email for Mr. Forssell yet. However, there is a special Content Requests forum section on Hulu's site you can post to.

In addition, we will be tweeting nonstop to @NBC, @Syfy, @Netflix, @Hulu, and anyone else you think should hear this. Let them know how much we want the event back! Make sure you included #theevent in the tweets.

When tweeting, include #TheEvent and (if you have room) #ContinueTheEvent. Let's get The Event treading! If you don't have a Twitter account, get one!

For those of you who have a Google+ account, also post there. Make your posts public, so they can be found by anyone on the network. If you don't have a Google+ account but want one, please leave a comment here and one of us can add you.

For those of you on Facebook, go to the Facebook pages of NBC (and NBCTheEvent), Netflix, Syfy and Hulu, and let them know you want to see The Event continue!

Another important task... find internet celebs that like The Event and have them help with the cause!

When I'm on Twitter, I search for people tweeting about The Event, and I let them know about our site, so they can join this fight. Now, I'll do this for anyone I come across, regardless of how many followers they have, but let's face it... someone who joins the fight that has many followers can do more to bring others to the fight than someone who has few of them. I'll have more effect if I can get the attention of someone who has 5,000 followers than someone else who has 5.

Occasionally, I'll come across people that have a lot of followers. This is a good thing, because if they retweet, their followers will see what I've tweeted and some of them who also enjoy The Event will join the cause.

Today, I found an internet celebrity that watches The Event, but I haven't been successful getting her attention. However, with your help, we can do it together.

Justine Ezarik, better known as @ijustine, is a fan of The Event. She has almost 1.3 million followers on Twitter. THAT'S HUGE!!! Consider this: If 0.5% of her fans sent in an email to Marc Graboff at NBCUniversal, that's 6,500 emails!

Here's a request... help me get the attention of @ijustine. Send her a tweet about this site and get her to tweet about it. If you do, we'll have a lot more people join this cause!

If you know of any other people that have more than 1,000 Twitter followers and watch The Event, please tweet to them, and let them know about this site, tweeting and emailing NBCUniversal exec Marc Graboff, the person that can do the most to bring back The Event, and do some of the other things we've mentioned on this site.

The Event for The Event, Between Now and Phase 2

Thanks to everyone who participated in "The Event for The Event" on Monday, June 27th. It was a success, with thousands of people participating and letting the powers that be know that we want The Event to return.

It's now time to continue "The Event for The Event". In fact, we'll be continuing "The Event for The Event" every Monday until we have a definitive answer about its return.

As you know if you're in the U.S., and you probably know elsewhere, it's July the 4th this Monday, which is Independence Day - a holiday in the U.S.. With that in mind, we're asking for our international viewers to be front and center this time around. We want you to contact your networks that televise The Event, and tell them that you want to see The Event return. We're going to make this installment a week-long event, given the holiday.

What we're asking for your help on is we'd like it if international viewers could send in the contacts for their country and network. We'll update this post as more viewers chime in with contact information, and as we find out the information on our own.

American viewers, that doesn't excuse you of anything to do. We would like Americans to expand the circle of contact. In addition to contacting Marc Graboff and Ted Harbert, we'd like to expand to include the following:
  • More NBCUniversal Execs - Robert Greenblatt - and CEO Steve Burke - We're guessing his email is or
  • NBC Affiliates - Contact your local station to let them know you want The Event to continue. I have a partial list of contacts that I will include later.
  • Other Channels/Alternative Sources - This includes Syfy @syfy and Netflix. I'll include email addresses once I have them.
Update: Here is a partial list of U.S. NBC affiliates:

The plan is to get to media attention in the next two weeks, if we don't get a response before that. So, let's keep the pressure up!

I wanted to get a post out before much more time had elapsed. I will keep editing this post with more content over the next day, and on the 4th as
