The People Have Spoken

ReloadedI‘m very pleased to say that thanks to your overwhelming show of support and to a strong desire on both our parts to come to an agreement, TechTV has improved its offer and I’ve decided to climb back aboard the good ship Call for Help.
I’ll be back on the air starting next Tuesday, April 20.

The future is still a little cloudy, however. Comcast assumes ownership of the channel a few weeks later and I have no idea what will happen after that. I am certain they’ve been impressed by your support for the show, however, and if that doesn’t convince them to keep it on the air, I don’t know what could.

I can never thank you all enough for your incredible outpouring of encouragement and support. You really made a difference. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

[UPDATE: Vulcan doesn’t want me in the studio until the contract takes effect so I won’t be back until a week later: April 27. Wil Wheaton will guest host Friday, April 23 and Monday, April 26. UPDATE to the UPDATE: Never mind. It’s April 20 again. But Wil will still guest host Friday and Monday. Welcome to my world.]

    Mass SPAM (what TPTB probably thought of all our emails) works!

  2. Awesome news Leo. Nothing could make me happier, well except a repeat for the Marlins!

  3. I am glad to see that Leo is coming back to the show CFH. The show is not the same without him.

    for ya but it will be GREAT to see ya back on the air.Whew for a few weeks

    luck to ya……………

  5. Thank God your back….I feel like a long lost friend has returned..Now go save CFH..lol

  6. Woo-Hoo!!! Power to the People!!! Fantastic news and an outcome I dared not hope for!!! It will be SO GOOD to see you back on TechTV!!!
    Now that I’m over quota for exclamation marks, just let me say ‘Best of Luck’ with the COMCAST transition and here’s hoping we’ll be able to watch you on the new combined network for many years to come.

  7. Welcome back Leo!!! You will never know how much CFH has ment to me. And after you left I could not bear to watch it. Cat is great Roger and everyone else to, but without you whats the point?? I have learned so much from you. you could never possibly know. I’m not kidding when I say this you are the reason I own a computer. I always was too scared I dident know enough about them to own one. But watching you every day you just made me feel that it was ok .No matter how simple the problem was, you never talked down to anyone.It was just good to know that if I did find somthing that stumped me, I knew sooner or later Leo would talk about it. And you did.And that means a great deal to me. So to my professer I say thank you and Ill catch you at our next class!!(grin) Welcome Back!!!!!!!

  8. Wonderful news Leo. You are tech.tv 🙂 Now how about some mac tips? I have missed that.

  9. That is awsome news Leo. The whole network just wasn’t the same without you. I feel much better now. I enjoyed watching Chris Parillo (sp?) he brought back some of your energy but it still wasn’t as good as when you are there. I am very happy for you and wish you and Tech TV the best, here is to at least another 10 years (or as long as you want to be there)

  10. In the words of Homer Simpson, “Woo-Hoo”. This news has really made my day…Its going to be good to see you back on TechTV!

  11. Happy Happy Joy Joy…. Happy Happy Joy Joy…. remember the ol’ cowboy, Stinky Weasel Teats…..
    I told my wife yesterday that Leo was gone because of those “Vulcan” idiots and contracts…. and now I find that Leo is coming back…….. I’m grinnin’ like an idiot….. How does it look ??????
    First the Save FarScape worked at SciFi and now Leo is coming back to TechTV… is there anything that a email campaign can’t do ????? Rhetorical Question !!!!

  13. Leo,
    I am VERY VERY VERY VERY glad to hear that you are back on call for help. Now we need you back on TSS 😉
    Patrick

  14. I’m looking forward to Tuesday when CFH will once again be worth watching.
    Now if we can only figure out how to get Leo back on TSS!!! Maybe he can do it via webcam from his home! Yeah, that’s the ticket!
