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.

    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.

    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!

    The show is inspring to me, I just found it on Netflix and I was hooked. This show is not only informative but it makes you think about life in general. It gives you reason to think about purpose in life. Please renew contract for this show. I already wanted to know what will happen in the next season. I will tune in!! Thanks and Please.
  • LuisCountry: USA2014-02-13 11:34:16
    Please continue this program for one more season. I liked it . I am receiving neurological care for a long time and this program help me deal with it.

    Please continue "A Gifted Man", this program was so special for me and touched my heart so deeply. I have a severely disabled son who has problems with his brain and it grieves me everyday of my life. He should have gone to a doctor like on the show but instead they put him on medication that damaged his brain. I wish we had had other options. Please bring this show back!!!
  • AliaCountry: Aricopa2014-01-09 16:29:19
    This show is so charming and a breath of fresh air. Why do we have so many nasty reality shows that are so disgusting to our youth. This show has a story line and is so mysterious. Jennifer love Hewitt had her crazy show forever but it was on abc family why don't they send the show to another network that will let it last against the same rating shows. It's already been canceled for a year but please bring it back why tease us on Netflix.
  • Roger DoddsCountry: USA2013-12-22 00:53:12
    We love it! Anything predictable and formulaic fell by the wayside during the course of the season. The show is working marvelous changes in every character. Consistently surprising, challenging, and moving. PLEASE bring it back!
  • williamCountry: united states2013-12-19 21:47:04
    I only watch shows on TV that offer several things: top notch production and directing, (I use to run my own TV station in the city where I live,) clean, original storylines, and quality acting -- A Gifted Man had all these qualities. Please bring it back, pump up the advertising for the show, (I never saw ANY!,) and let this great show live!!
  • Deborah and Gary dashmeyCountry: united states2013-12-19 21:31:43
    One of the most original, well produced, acted and directed shows, ever. Please bring back this stellar TV show!!

    J'APPRECIE ENORMEMENT A GIFTED MAN POUR TOUT. ACTEURS EXCELLENTS, ATTACHANTS DANS LA SERIE,THEMES MEDICAUX, SURNATUREL DANS VIE COURANTE, HUMANITE.. TOUT EST GENIAL ET C'EST VRAIMENT UN MANQUE DE NE PLUS VOIR UNE SUITE. CE SERAIT VRAIMENT INJUSTE DE NOUS AVOIR CAPTIVE AVEC LA SAISON 1, LAISSE UN SUSPENSE .. ET TOUT LACHER POUR UN PROBLEME D'AUDIENCE.. IL SUFFIT DE CHANGER LES HORAIRES ET DE FAIRE DE LA PUB.. MAIS QU'UNE TELLE QUALITE SE PERDE.. C'EST DOULOUREUX ET INJUSTE.. J'ESPERE VRAIMENT QUE CETTE SERIE AURA UNE SUITE QUE NOUS VERRONS TRES BIENTOT MEME EN FRANCE.. DANS CETTE ATTENTE IMPATIENTE. FAITES REVENIR MIKAEL ET SON ENTOURAGE.. IL ET ILS, ELLES LE MERITENT.. MERCI BEAUCOUP.. CORDIALEMENT.

    This was an excellent show. Why do they always cancel the good ones while the majority with bad taste win out.
  • Eddie JamesCountry: United States2013-10-18 20:58:36
    This is an "outstanding" program... Please return it.
