Alcatraz: Petition, Ways to Help Save the FOX TV Show

Alcatraz petitionOn this FOX TV series, investigators try to figure out the mystery of what happened to 340 prisoners and guards from Alcatraz. The bigger mystery is “Where have the viewers gone?” Without them, Alcatraz will be cancelled.

What can you do? Remember, the ideal scenario for FOX 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, it’s not.

However, if you like Alcatraz 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 or purchase episodes online so your viewing will be directly counted. 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 e-mail or, even better, write via “snail-mail” to: Mr. Kevin Reilly, President, FOX, P.O. Box 900, Beverly Hills, CA 90213-0900, RE: Alcatraz
  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 FOX, Bad Robot Productions, and Warner Bros. Television:

We, the undersigned, greatly enjoy watching Alcatraz on the FOX network. The show is intriguing and the stories and characters keep us coming back for more each week. We want to know what happened to those people and how or why they keep reappearing.

Please find a way to keep Alcatraz 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 FOX or, if necessary, on another channel.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Please bring back Alcatraz its one of the best TV shows ever made

    Why was this cancelled? plenty of opportunity to expand and take on new story lines! did a "63" kill JFK? just one idea based on their clear ability to travel through time! The series left so many unanswered questions that surly it should come back, perhaps the advertising was poor, (differently was in England)hence bad viewer ratings, I only found out about it a few days ago and have watched all 13 episodes! due to how hooked I am, bring it back please!

    I have been watching Alcatraz since the first episode came out. My whole family and I always watch it together because we don't want to miss a single exciting episode. Please don't cancel i, run it by a different channel if necessary but don't cancel this amazing show of thrilling events. My family and I really want to know what happens in the second season or even further than that. Thank You for creating such a wonderful show that has given my family and I a reason to finally sit together as a family and watch television. Thank you for all of your hard work on the first season, I wish you, the producers, and the actors and actresses a nice day.

    I want an end for the serie, maybe if J.J. Abrams get more involved on the project could have better numbers. But it was a good serie and we want an end for it. Thanks.

    having missed this first time around on watch, I recently signed up to amazon prime and saw it there. One rainy morning I started watching it and by the end of the day I had watched all 13 episodes and all I can say is FOX YOU SUCK,!!! I thought the show was great and it was only getting better throughout., you actually wanted to discover what happened to them in the final episode, how they jumped time where did they go and why they are back, and what does the warden and tommy have to do with it all and the hot Sarah Jones!! Is she dead or not???? C'mon Fox get it together ok the final episode got 4.75 million viewers, you have shows with less than that and you are still showing them. Bring this back it was great and better than some of the crap that you show.

  • Tracey MallaghanCountry: England2014-12-16 04:00:44
    Just found series on Amazon prime. How about doing a ripper street and having it aired weekly on prime?
  • Mike & LynCountry: UK2014-12-13 15:23:28
    Only found this series by accident on Amazon Prime and became engrossed, great series and find it impossible to believe that series 2 hasn't been completed! We have plenty of rubbish on UK TV and find Alcatraz equalling the excellent American Horror story series and Grimm series, so make us some more! -please??
  • Jessica BlackeryCountry: United Kingdom2014-12-13 14:29:39
    There has to be a second series if not more my husband and I where hooked from start to end...
  • PetraCountry: Hungary2014-12-12 10:29:31
    I really loved this show. Can't believe it was cancelled. It still has a lot of potential. So please make season 2!!!
  • Joel WalkerCountry: United States2014-12-12 03:58:43
    I've really gotten into this show, the story is mind blowing and i want to know what happens next. season one ends with a cliffhanger and i know you did it on purpose (laughing). I don't mind which TV channel Alcatraz airs on, i'm subscribed to Bright house cable, even Netflix wouldn't be bad because i'm also subscribed to that. I've already had one of my favorite shows cancelled (Cult) which made me angry so please continue Alcatraz for a season 2 or maybe more? :) Thank you Sincerely, Joel Walker
