Hope for fallen angels

Faithful readers may recall that I posted a while ago about Joss Whedon's anguish over the cancellation of his TV show Angel. It's not just Joss who's frustrated. It seems that E! Online / Yahoo! TV sponsors an annual ''Save One Show'' poll to identify a TV show that shouldn't be cancelled, and guess what show won by a landslide?
Not only have Angel supporters signed petitions (more than 75,000 on one site alone) and donated their own money for full-page ads in the Hollywood Reporter and Variety, they're taking positive action by sending flowers to WB executives such as Jordan Levin (who, in turn, has passed them along to children's hospitals), organizing rallies in Los Angeles and Hamburg, Germany -- and even holding a blood drive to keep Angel alive.
