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 can't believe yet another programme has been axed before its conclusion. Perhaps warnings should be shown before the initial programme starts saying - this programme is likely to leave you without any conclusion - so continue watching at your own peril! Gutted this has been cancelled - I'll never what happened, so what was the point of my watching any of it.

  • DanielCountry: Brazil2014-05-28 00:13:36
    The end of Alcatraz season one is the beginning of season two. We've been waiting for that and I do hope it becomes true.
  • Nicolas OrozcoCountry: United States2014-05-24 22:29:08
    Please bring back the show "Alcatraz". The stories of the inmates on the show are really interesting, and although it's fiction the viewers get to see some very real history. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Renew Alcatraz for season 2...we want to know what happens to the other prisoners.
  • Ernestine HenryCountry: USA2014-05-17 16:06:39
    Bring back Alcatraz!
  • KathyCountry: UK2014-05-13 15:39:08
    This show did not just have potential but it sustained more interesting plotlines and developed more character arcs, in one season, than many achieve in three seasons or more. FOX should really order another season, or more and more TV shows are going to go to services like Netflix, not only for production but for exclusive exhibition rights as well. Companies which have less money but will still probably offer them better budgets, higher episode orders, greater publicity and just better contracts over all.

    I loved Alcatraz and was so disappointed it was not renewed! My husband and grown daughter watched every episode, also.
  • GabiCountry: USA2014-05-01 13:50:30
    I would watch the show, watched a season on Netflix, but can't find it on TV.
  • RodCountry: Uk2014-05-01 08:06:14
    Please keep Alcatraz running we all need a season 2. It is one of the best tv shows, As it is different and has a lot to offer. I belive it would be a hit with a renewed season.
