Believe: New NBC Drama; Cancel or Keep It?

Believe TV show on NBC: cancel or renew?NBC has had mixed luck with their ratings this season. They’ve had some successes and some failures. How does the Believe TV series measure up? Will it be cancelled or renewed for season two?

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

The show got off to a positive start on Monday, March 10th — likely thanks to having The Voice as a lead-in. The premiere drew a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.56 million total viewers. It was a distant second in its timeslot, behind ABC’s The Bachelor: After the Final Rose.

The second episode, which aired in Believe’s regular Sunday night timeslot, saw the ratings drop 45% in the demo and 22% in viewership. Last week’s installment fell another 18% in the demo and 22% in viewers.

To drop to a 1.2 rating in the demo after just three episodes is a very bad sign for Believe’s future. It’s possible that the numbers could turn around and start to rise but it’s more likely that they’ll keep falling. The network needs new successful programming for their schedule and it seems clear that this isn’t it.

But, what do you think? Do you like the Believe TV show? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

That is what is wrong with our world today. Kids shouldn’t be viewing most programs on regular tv. The ones that people can sit down and watch as a family get canceled. This cancels out some of the time that parents and children sit down together for a family activity. We are a digital nation, which includes tv. Why do the family shows seem to always get canceled only to be replaced with a show children shouldn’t be watching?
