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.

    Dear Fox, My name is Joseph Harold Rauch, I have loved and watched Alcatraz TV series from the moment it started until its ending. I am disappointed you dismantled this great show, and wish this to continue on. How this show ended, was when the female detective got hit, however, we want to see this show continue on. I am currently a huge fan of the show and don't want to see this show go.

    This was such an amazing show, it was the first time I seen a show like this on T.V. I am seriously hoping this show could be saved, it had potential.

    I don't watch movies on TV and no TV at all. I just learned about the TV series Alcatraz on a few months ago. I bought the DVD of the one-year series and loved it. I feel sad it was cancelled after one year. This series had so much potential. I believe many viewers would have come back and there would have been many new viewers if the series were continued.

  • JonCountry: United Kingdom2015-02-23 13:43:23
    Please bring back Alcatraz its one of the best TV shows ever made
  • ThomasCountry: England2015-02-21 18:33:42
    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!
  • LincolnCountry: Australia2015-02-17 21:36:41

    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.
