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.

    I really miss the show... The story and all the actors were truly unique. Every episode had a really nice feeling. Not many shows have given med these feelings. I would love to see a season 2. It would be truly sad to just see it go away...

    I love this show and to end on such a cliff-hanger. i want to know what happens next. me and my family enjoyed sitting round the tv to watch this show. If you wont film another series, could you at least tell us what you were planning on doing. does becca survive? does the task force start looking for the 43's in the rest of the U.S? do we get to see the Warden in the modern day?

    We just watched the whole first season after purchasing it. When we went back to the store to find out there was no season 2 we were very upset. We would love to see the show continue, we need a season 2 we will be lost forever without it.

    My family and I absolutely adored this show! Unfortunately due to working commitments I was unable to catch the show when it was broadcast on TV here, but I was so intrigued by the premise that I immediately bought the DVD as soon as it became available in the UK. We devoured it in one sitting and we were looking forward to a second series being broadcast soon after, "only that's not what happened - not at all"! I found the series totally gripping, much more so than other series that I enjoy and regularly watch and that keep getting series renewals year after year (not naming any names!). This show has so much more new ground to tread and revelations to make, whereas other series seem to be recycling the same old material every season (again, no names mentioned). Please bring this show back - the lingering mystery behind the 63s is too much to bear! It is a shame that such a fantastic show should be cancelled and fans left reeling after such an intense season finale as a result of a somewhat flawed and limited ratings system determining its popularity on the fans' behalf. Save Alcatraz!
