Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Alcatraz TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

Please DO NOT cancel ALCATRAZ. My family loves this show. With so many prisoners, this show has endless possibilities.

I watched all of Alcatraz but was never hooked. It was to formulaic, each episode was obvious what would happen. The premise is good but is poorly executed. I’d tune in for a second season but I wouldn’t be to sad to see it go. I’d rather it was wrapped up better though if it is not renewed.

I love Alcatraz and The Finder and would hate to lose either one. The only new shows I watch are those and Grimm.

I am a fan of Alcatraz — I would prefer that it not be canceled. If it is, please wrap up the show with a 2-hour movie.

Since Lie to Me began I thought FOX might Finally be interested in creating shows for people who like shows with some intelligence and creativity. I nearly didn’t watch Terra Nova Or Alcatraz because I think FOX has a proven track record of going with the few that get a quick audience, and not giving the good ones time for word of mouth to make it around. I love Alcatraz (also Terra Nova and The Finder)….I’m just hoping a more far-sighted network picks up at least Alcatraz and Terra Nova!!

I LOVE this show! My wife and I watched it every Monday and also DVRed it, so we can watch it again before the 2nd season (please let there be a 2nd season…). The last show that I was this into was (of course) JJ Abrams ‘Lost’, and it’s hard to find a primetime show that has captivated me in such a way.

Please keep this show, it is original and the acting is amazing, I say open the budget up more, and draw in a few more great actors, think of the guest appearances you could have.
