    Why the Campaign to Save Lucifer Was Important

    Networks should pay attention
    Lucifer

    Back in May, Lucifer fans everywhere felt disappointment when they learned Fox had canceled the show after only 3 seasons. They were not about to let their favorite devil go gently into that good night, however, they used the power of social media to voice their anger. The hashtags #SaveLucifer and #PickUpLucifer were trending on Twitter for a month. The overwhelming outcry from fans eventually led to the series being picked up by Netflix for a 4th season.

    Lucifer

    How we all felt upon finding out FOX had cancelled Lucifer.

    Part of what fueled the fevered campaign was the immense cliffhanger the show’s 3rd and would-be final season left on. It was a moment that fans had been waiting on for a long time, and one I will leave the specifics out of to avoid spoilers for anyone who may not have seen it yet. It was a moment that had the show not been able to continue would have been torture for its viewers. Co-showrunner, Jon Henderson, has said that he thought to end the show on such a big cliffhanger would have prevented Fox from deciding to cancel the show, but he turned out to be wrong.

    Lucifer

    I think we all felt like Chloe when we saw that cliffhanger.

    The campaign is a lesson that TV networks can learn about how viewers today are consuming their media. Fox’s reason for canceling Lucifer was due to low live ratings the show had been receiving. However, people are no longer watching their favorite shows the traditional way. In a world where we have Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video it is all too easy to watch TV at convenience instead of making sure to watch a show as it airs live.

    Lucifer

    What would we do if we didn’t get to see this face on our TV’s anymore?

    If network executives are looking solely towards ratings in order to decide how popular a series is, they are looking at it the wrong way. The #SaveLucifer campaign along with the campaigns to save shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Expanse is proof of this. They should start looking at all the numbers for their shows, not just the live ratings. Social media interactions, the numbers on Hulu, Netflix, and other binge sites are other numbers they should take into consideration.

    Lucifer

    Lucifer wasn’t going to go out without a fight.

    Lucifer stars Tom Ellis (Doctor Who) as Lucifer, Lauren German (Hostel: Part II) as Detective Chloe Decker, Lesley-Ann Brandt (Spartacus: Gods of the Arena) as Mazikeen, D.B. Woodside (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as Amenadiel, and Kevin Alejandro (The Returned) as Detective Dan Espinoza.

    The Mommy Gamers Podcast Episode 178: Pickle Juice Slushies

    Carrie and Marcia are back this week with the cure to your craving for Pickle Juice Slushies. Kidding, they are absolutely confused as to why pickle juice slushies are trending right now. But the ladies are always here to cover those trending hot topics.

    Marcia celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with some traditional corned beef and cabbage, while the mostly Irish Carrie claims she prefers the other other white meat. You’ll have to listen to see what it is. The ladies argue a little bit over whose game is better, and there’s some odd chat about llamas. They also chat Lucifer, Star Wars and all the stuff about games, kids and life.

    The Mommy Gamers Podcast Episode 177: Of White Russians and Crunchy Doritos

    This week Marcia and Carrie bring some Doritos to the podcast to discuss the trending lady-like Doritos topic. As you’d expect they chomped down on their Doritos in the most non-ladylike fashion. Keeping with the junk food theme the ladies also chat about a nutritional study claiming pizza IS a healthy breakfast choice. Gaming talk covers Staxel, Super Lucky’s Tale, Halo 5 and a lot more.

    Listen to Episode 177 of The Mommy Gamers Podcast for that, and the story behind the white russian in the picture for this episode. Hint: It has to do with breast milk…again.

    The Mommy Gamers Podcast Episode 175: Baby Needs A Biscuit

    Carrie and Marcia present to you the final podcast of 2017. We have enjoyed bringing you yet another year full of entertaining conversations about gaming, hot topics, television, movies, and butts. This week the ladies talk about the hot garbage mess that is PUBG on Xbox One, the Fortnite 50 vs 50 Battle Royale mode, Predator on Ghost Recon, and Star Wars Battlefront II. Marcia once again paid good money to check out the latest shenanigans from the folks at Cards Against Humanity, sharing some of their “Saves America” campaign. Carrie gets to say “I told you so” about Lucifer, with only minimal spoilers (you’ve been warned).

    You all asked some great questions this week too! Please do that again and enjoy the show! We are now including the YouTube version of the Twitch live stream in these posts, as well as the audio version at the bottom of the post. Of course you can still find the show on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play Music and now…SPOTIFY!!

    The Mommy Gamers Podcast Episode 174: The Twitch Stream Strikes Back

    The Mommy Gamers Podcast Episode 174 The Twitch Stream Strikes Back

    After a nearly two year hiatus, The Mommy Gamers Podcast is back on Twitch for a live recorded show. Carrie and Marcia brush the dust off their cameras and kick things off with a little getting to know you session. Game chat this week was pretty lively as Carrie had some downtime thanks to a nasty case of mastitis. She played ELEX, Turing Test, and Cuphead. Marcia actually gave Destiny 2 a chance, but is still obsessed with Fortnite, and went off on some rant about eating a bush. We’re convinced she’s finally lost her mind completely.

    The ladies reminisce about Supermarket Sweep, which is apparently making a comeback. They also try to sort out whether or not they think the Amazon Key Service, allowing delivery drivers to leave packages inside your home, is a good thing or a straight up “NOPE”.

    The ladies also talk TV & Movies, covering Lucifer, Orville, Baby Drive and much more. The question and answer segment of this episode was one of our best in a very long time thanks to our live audience. Questions such as: What games are you looking forward to, if you binge watch Stranger Things over three days will you die, and a long conversation about craw fish etouffe round off this lively podcast quite nicely!

    Carrie’s new baby was clearly the star of the show, and you can listen to the podcast using the link below as usual, or watch the live stream we included in this post.
