Believe: NBC Sunday Night Drama Cancelled

Believe TV show canceledBo has some amazing abilities but unfortunately they didn’t help save her series. NBC has cancelled the Believe TV show after one season.

Believe revolves around a young girl who has special abilities and the adults who are trying to protect her. The cast includes Johnny Sequoyah, Jake McLaughlin, Delroy Lindo, Kyle MacLachlan, Jamie Chung, and Arian Moayed.

The series got off to a positive start, thanks to its premiere airing on a Monday night after NBC’s top-rated show, The Voice. Unfortunately only about 60% of that episode’s audience decided to tune in to watch the second episode six days later.

The ratings kept falling lower each week. This week’s installment of Believe drew just a 1.0 demo rating with 4.33 million viewers. Those numbers were just too low to justify ordering a second season.

On the positive side, it appears that NBC plans to order all of the remaining four episodes.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Believe hasn’t been renewed for a second season?

Here is the thing, networks rely almost exclusively on the ratings system for advertising price and to determine when to cancel or renew a show. To understand just how inaccurate this rating system is, read the wikipedia page (Link below). It states that the ratings are determined from a very small sample of viewers, it also says that DVR time delayed viewing is not included which is a huge error on say a Sunday night at 9:00 PM when all the networks are playing their best shows. I don’t know if I ever watched believe live at 9PM. NBC even said when they canceled Believe, that this show had high ratings when they played the pilot on a Monday, but they fell off when it aired the second episode on Sunday. This explains a lot about why so many great shows are canceled. Why id the Blacklist and state of affairs continuing successfully on Mondays? Did they know this was a time slot issue? They should have because it is a recurring scenario and even the viewers are starting to catch on. I don’t know if these guys running the networks are just stupid, or maybe stuck between a rock and a hard place. Too bad they are not fixing the problem! It may be there are just to many new shows and these guys are looking for the next big super hit for the Sunday market share.
