Fans Ready to Bleed for Moonlight





Moonlight on CBS We haven't done much coverage of the CBS series "Moonlight" other than Melissa's Look at the Moonlight Premiere, but it seems to have developed quite a loyal fanbase.

How loyal? Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, they're willing to give their blood to prove it. "Teaming with the Red Cross and online protest rally point YouChoose.net, "Moonlight" viewers are organizing a nationwide blood drive to garner network support for a second season. They claim that more than 3,000 fans have pledged to donate a pint. "Moonlight" star Alex O'Loughlin has been so moved by fans' efforts that sources close to the series said he is becoming a spokesman for the Red Cross."

It's a great cause, but ironically, there's probably no necessity for the drive as the general consensus is that the network already plans to renew the show. Nonetheless, as Barbara Arnold, one of the effort's organizers says, "We wanted to celebrate the return of episodes and really focus attention on the show. They say one pint of blood saves three lives. So if we can collect 3,000, wouldn't that be nice?"

CBS will air the season's remaining four episodes beginning April 25th. I've not watched "Moonlight", which kind of surprises me since I'm such a vamp gal, but with support like this, I think I'm definitely going to have to start!

My mom loves it, so maybe you're just not the right demographic, Terminal.
