A Gifted Man: Petition, Ways to Help Save the CBS TV Show

Save Gifted ManOn this CBS TV show, Patrick Wilson plays a selfish surgeon. Unfortunately, A Gifted Man could use a ratings transplant. The numbers haven’t been good and the TV show will surely be cancelled.

What can you do? Remember, the ideal scenario for CBS is for many millions of people to watch the show on their television sets, while it’s being broadcast. Unfortunately, ratings are put together based on a sampling of viewers. If you’re a “Nielsen household,” your viewing is being counted. If not, well, it’s not.

However, if you like A Gifted Man and want to see it continue, there are a few things you can do to help.

  1. If you’re a Nielsen family, watch the show whenever it’s on. If not, watch it on CBS.com or purchase episodes online so your viewing will be counted directly. Encourage others to watch the show. You might know a Nielsen family and not be aware of it.
  1. Talk about the show with others; at school, at work, online, or wherever. Creating a buzz about a show that you’re invested in gets other people interested and might help bring former viewers back.
  1. Sign the petition below and encourage others to do the same.
  1. Write to the network. Be respectful. Everyone responds better to courtesy. Tell them how much you enjoy the show, that you’ve signed the petition, and that you want to see it continue. You can use this form or, even better, write via “snail-mail” immediately to: Ms. Nina Tassler, CBS, 7800 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90039, RE: A Gifted Man
  1. Take note of the products that are advertised during the show. Write the advertisers and tell them that you appreciate their sponsoring the show and that you buy their products (if you do).

To CBS, CBS Television Studios, and Timberman-Beverly Productions:

We, the undersigned, enjoy watching A Gifted Man on CBS. The characters and storylines are interesting and touching. They keep us coming back week after week and we care about what happens on the show.

Please find a way to keep A Gifted Man on the air. We are devoted viewers who will continue to watch the program, encourage others to do the same, and will support the series’ advertisers as well. Please keep it going, either on CBS or, if necessary, on another channel. If that isn’t possible, please find a way to wrap up the show.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Please do not cancel "A Gifted Man". It's a great show with a great story. I'd love to see it go on.

    I enjoyed this show and unlike a lot on CBS was worth watch on how a doctor made a difference (unlike the doctors today). It created a medical fantasy as how it should be to what it actually is.

    By chance I stumbled upon the series "A Gifted Man," and binge watched the entire sixteen episodes on the weekend. I was so disappointed that there was not season two. I had not heard of it at the time of its release. Here it is 2 yrs later, and I am just watching this amazingly brilliant show. Patrick Wilson and cast are exquisite!! I know my signature comes two years too late, but just wanted whomever to know that I am soooooooooo disappointed that it had not filmed more episodes. I hope you'll consider returning it too CBS at some point. The show was amazing. Thanks so much, Nina Christian

    Would like to see A Gifted Man return, as someone said, appropriate viewing for the whole family - better quality than reality and/or sick/sex jokes based comedy; which is obvious our TV Stations are eating up and becoming consumed with. I watched this series on NetFlix and would like to see continuation of it..... but NetFlix is the only way to truly control what type of quality you are exposed to or now.... and obviously Neison Ratings don't reflect everyone and won't have my ratings because they didn't ask and I dont' watch that type of TV anymore.

    This is a great show. Very good story line and entertainment. Great cast and message. If you're going to cancel a show, cancel the so called "Reality" shows. Those aren't worthy of your network. Please bring it back. Thank you, Scott Shiflett

    I would like to ask CBS to please re-create and put back together a gifted man this show was an amazing drama series that unlike many others, had my whole entire family sitting down to watch television . With that said it would be nice to have more of these kind of shows rather than reality shows on the air. Please bring back a gifted man. Thank you, The McNamara Family Colorado

    I love this show. I don't watch many TV shows, because I'm extremely selective, but this one caught and held my attention. I'd love to keep watching if given the chance.
  • arturoCountry: mexico2014-04-01 02:44:28

    I have really fallen in love with this tv show and was devastated when I found out that there is only one season. I've bought the first season and would surely buy any new DVDs of this brilliant show. A "resuscitation" would be amazing!
