There are numerous reasons for wanting to get in touch with a television network. Maybe your favorite show has been pulled from the schedule and you want to express your disappointment, or perhaps you just want to tell them about a program you really enjoy.
Networks generally like to receive feedback from viewers, and most of them have contact forms on their websites set up just for this purpose. Here are some of those sites and forms, along with other methods of contacting the networks wherever we can find them.
GSN (formerly the Game Show Network) is deeply involved with viewers, as their platform is very interactive. You can contact them in a number of ways.
NBC carries (and has carried) several different game shows, including Deal or No Deal, and 1 vs. 100. They are also the parent company for a handful of cable channels, including Bravo, USA Network, and SciFi. Here's where you can get in touch with NBC.
Syndicated/Daytime TV Shows
For most of the syndicated and daytime television shows (with the exception of The Price is Right), you'll have to find the official website for that show and then look for a contact form or address there. Since the shows aren't owned by any single network, they're rather scattered.
Another option is to contact your local affiliate that carries the show, and ask them how you can get in touch with the production company.
Things to Keep in Mind
There are a couple of things to remember when contacting the networks.
- Many of your questions can be answered by reading the FAQ at the network website. Check those first – sometimes there are specific links where you can find answers.
- You'll probably get a canned response back at first, acknowledging receipt of your e-mail. There's a chance that's all you'll get as a reply too, as the volume of e-mail they receive is quite plentiful.
- Remember to send kudos as well as complaints. They all get their fair share of angry viewers demanding that their favorite programs stay on the air, but a kind word here and there is always appreciated!
