    Just when I find a good show like Alphas and get into it. It gets canceled. Don’t the producers see its a great show and keep it going? So the ratings went down slightly, doesn’t mean its a bad show. Keep writing & watch it gain popularity. Stop giving up so quickly.

    So sad that such a great show is cancelled. Not surprised, the good ones never come back. How long has a bad one been on….the Desperate Housewives seems to have gone on my entire adult life. Bleck.

    It feels so wrong. One of the best shows on television! I would like some answers to the second season ending. Also, the actors were incredible! I fell in love with SciFi not syfy after this show. I think its best to bring it back.

    I have never understood how networks determine who, or how many people watch their shows. No one has ever asked me which shows I watch.
    I think the ‘ratings’ rankings have more to do with internal politics of network executives. Guessing there were no network executive family-members who liked Alphas.
    Another good fantasy show gone, to make way for another reality show . . .

    Another good show bites the dust because the golden demographic didn’t watch it. When will these networks learn that existing on the 18-49 demographic and ignoring the other 66% over 50, is going to sink them?
