The boost hasn’t led to a Netflix special yet, but the new fans (you guys rock!) have definitely been tweeting about it a whole bunch and every last bit helps! I also think in the long run the national exposure also increases the odds Netflix finally pulls the trigger and greenlights the special, but I guess we’ll have to see!
