The Pink Ranger needs your help. Amy Jo Johnson, likely known to readers as high school hero Kimberly Hart from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, is hoping to garner support for her new project The Has Been. The Has Been follows an aging actress, Jordana, who, while currently down on her luck, starred in a popular children's show "a couple decades ago."

One hundred percent honest with you.  When we did HyperForce this week, there were only eight hundred viewers....That's not enough.  That's not enough for Saban to go, like, 'oh, enough people like this show.'
