Detective Lilly Rush and the rest of the team regularly solve unsolved cases from years ago. Unfortunately, it looks like their TV show will soon be a thing of the past as well. The show was barely renewed in 2009 and the ratings have dropped since then. Unless things change pretty quickly, it looks certain that Cold Case will be cancelled.
Remember, the most important thing to CBS and the sponsors is for people to watch the show on their television, while it’s being broadcast. If you like Cold Case and want to see it continue, there are a few things you can do to help keep it going.
- Watch the show each week, preferably live, and encourage others to do the same. You might know a Nielsen family and not even know it.
- Talk about the show with other people; at school, at work, online, or wherever. Creating a buzz about a show gets people interested and invested in watching.
- Sign the petition below and encourage others to do the same.
- 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 use this form or, even better, write via snail-mail to: Ms. Nina Tassler, CBS, 7800 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90039, RE: Cold Case
- Take note of the products that you see advertised consistently 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 CBS, Jerry Bruckheimer Television, Warner Bros. Television, and CBS Television Studios:
We, the undersigned, have enjoyed watching the Cold Case TV show on the CBS network. It continues to be a quality series with a unique and compelling way of telling crime stories.
Please find a way to keep Cold Case 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. If necessary, change its night and time. Please keep it going, either on CBS or, if necessary, on one of the other CBS-affiliated channels.
Thank you for your consideration.
