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?

I loved this show! After my mother’s passing two years ago, spending time with my father means a lot to me. This was one of our favorite shows that we watched together, with popcorn! Certainly kept the suspense from one week to the next. We couldn’t wait! Please bring it back.

I love this show, I can’t wait to watch it. Its a show that show love between a father and a daughter. Its has a lot of lessons and values to teach others.

Its does not have the bad stuff the other shows has like sex, drugs, haltered. She always sees the good in people no matter if no one else sees it.

Please keep it ataleast another season, I DVR it so does it not show that 3 people in our house hold watches it.

Keep it on. There’s enough crap on TV that this show is needed to make things interesting.
