Melrose Again: Bloggin' about Melrose Place

Katie Cassidy fan mobilizes social media campaign to save Melrose Place.

with 5 comments

In the weeks following the season finale of Melrose Place, I’ve seen fans use all forms of social media with a determination to maintain buzz for the show so the CW Network will take note and renew it in the eleventh hour. Melrosers have taken to Twitter and Facebook to exchange tips on how to keep Melrose visible, with good reason. The CW Network’s presentation of its Fall lineup to the TV media is coming up in May, so efforts to save the show must build to a crescendo now. I’m doing my part, but I have to admit that I’m very impressed by the passion of one particular fan, whose devotion to Our Miss Ella, Katie Cassidy, is surely known by anyone with a Twitter account: KCassidyFans. This devoted Katie follower has wowed me with an amazing knowledge of social media, teaching me a few new tricks in the process. Indeed, I’ve been using the hashtag #SOSMelrosePlace and added a Melrose twibbon to my Twitter avatar at KCassidyFans’ urging. Hopefully, it has contributed to the growing clamor for a Melrose renewal. The latest phase of KCassidyFan’s campaign involves a tip sheet of ways to make your digital voice heard in support of the show. Check it out at:  Together, we can make a difference!

  1. What’s the point? They got rid of the hot gay man.

    • LOL. You’re right, Justin. That was a mistake. I even posted about it.

  2. Don’t know if this means anything, but Michael Rady is a guest star on “Medium” tonight. Could be just a hiatus gig, but it had to be filmed some weeks or couple of months ago, so…

  3. I know that Melrose is a CBS production, and “Medium” is also.

    • Very interesting observation, Barbara. I know that Melrose finished shooting in January so it’s possible Michael had enough time to film an episode of “Medium.” It looks like the Melrose actors have gotten good exposure regardless. We’ll see on May 20 when the CW announces its Fall lineup! fingers crossed!
