Help Keep "Oddities" on the Air!


"Oddities," Morbid Anatomy's new favorite television program, is in danger! Below is a plea from Mike Zohn, co-proprietor of Obscura Antiques and Oddities, the antique shop which is at the center of this new and wonderful Discovery Channel reality show:
Fans of Oddities...We need your help.....First, thank you for all the kind words and all. We appreciate all of it. It seems that for some reason Discovery has not run any TV ads for our show. Our ratings have been OK, but most people don't know there are 2 episodes back to back...and many more don't even know about the show. Seems it might be hard to build an audience and a following without some TV advertising......
So, what can you do to help?
  • You can watch! Oddities airs on the Discovery Channel on Thursday nights, from 8-9 PM; At 8:00 PM, catch a screening of last week's episode; stay tuned for a new episode at 8:30.
  • Lodge a complaint to Discovery Channel asking for commercials and better promotion! You can do so (as I just did!) by clicking here.
  • Spread the word; if you like the show, tell your friends!
  • "Friend" them on Facebook! This is also a great way to keep apprised of the latest "Oddities" and shop information. You can find them on Facebook by clicking here.
  • Come to our "Oddities" screening party on December 9th at 8:00 PM! You can find out more details about that by clicking here or here.
Thanks everyone for your help in saving this new and wonderful television show!

I like the show, but it always feels to me like they are trying to get good stuff way cheaper than they should. Like the Pawn Shop show...

I just lodged a complaint to the Discovery Channel for about the lack of promoting this AWESOME new show! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it and would be so sad if it was cancelled. Antiques are my thing...and odd/weird antiques are even better!!! Morbid Anatomy, thank you for supporting Oddities and also for such a great blog in general! I am a new obsessed follower!! :) ~ Maggie

We did watch last night but it was a bit like the Pickers. Nice stuff tho.

We have been seeing commercials/Ads for your show in our area for the past three weeks. Is it a regional issue based on local cable companies? And we LOVE the program!

Love the show! Stumbled upon it by accident, luckily on the first night. No commercials in this area. Did as you requested and sent off comments to Discovery. Love your shop!
