Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place?

So, from my post yesterday, I decided to contact WETV and see if perhaps they are planning on bringing back Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place and perhaps, you know, get some viewers for their fly-by-night TV station.

So, I nicely sent them this e-mail:

Hi -

A couple years ago, WE played 2 Guys a Girl and a Pizza Place. Then, all of the sudden, it was gone. I keep checking back on a monthly basis, hoping it's brought back in syndication because I love that show and WE was the only place I could get it. Are there any plans to bring the re-runs of it back? If there were, I'm sure the rating period between 2-3 pm (or the TV wasteland as I like to call it) would increase threefold!

Thank you for your time.

Brent Nelson

I figured there was no harm in asking if they were going to bring back one of the top five TV shows of all time. I mean, I'm just trying to help them out by helping me out.

This was the very terse response they gave me:

This show is not returning to WE tv.

Wow...I mean:

No explanation at all?
No thanks for the suggestion but we will not be doing that at this time?
No correctly identifying your evanescent station correctly?

I guess besides terrible programming, they've taught their customer service people how to respond in the most pithy manner possible. Maybe they get charged by the word on their e-mail?

Doesn't's not like anyone watches that channel anyway...

You should have included who you were: Brent Nelson Esquire, creator of Through the valley and over the woods: a blog followed by 10s of people.

I know its probably uncomfortable throwing your celebrity around but sometimes you need to use the big guns.

You, sir or madam, are correct. But I don't want them to know who they're talking to. I mean, is Audrina Patridge going to use her celebrity to get a table at the Ivy? I think not!
