With 11.3 million viewers Live + Same Day, a total 30-day Multiplateform Audience of 23.0 million viewers for the week of 9/23 episode, and ongoing strong Live viewer numbers (the 10/14 episode added to a strong BONES audience) SLEEPY HOLLOW is looking like it might be another hit for FOX.

What is it about the show that is attracting the audience? What is it about the LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW that has resonated with readers for almost 200 years? How good or bad is the history or "Sleepy Hollow-ness" of SLEEPY HOLLOW? Does that matter?

We'll be joined this week by Richard Iorio II the creator of the Weird History roleplaying game COLONIAL GOTHIC to discuss these very questions. The COLONIAL GOTHIC roleplaying game touches on many of the same themes as the SLEEPY HOLLOW show, but it does so within the time period of the American War for Independence.

"The truth is hidden, and plots are afoot. Events are moving behind the scenes, and lurking in the shadows are agents with their own agenda.

War is coming.

The Siege of Boston is lifted, and General Washington is leading the Continental Army to New York. The enemies are many, but as to who they are, you do not know.

Colonial Gothic is a supernatural historical horror roleplaying game set during the dawn of the American Revolution."
