Crisis, Believe: NBC Shows Pulled; Cancelled Now?

Believe TV show canceled soon?NBC has made a schedule change for the final Sunday of May sweeps, May 18th. The network has replaced Crisis and Believe with an encore of The Women of SNL.

While the Sunday night dramas haven’t been officially cancelled yet, they surely will be. Being pulled from the schedule during the sweeps period — replaced by a rerun of a clipshow, no less — is a very bad sign. The move isn’t a surprise though. Both Crisis and Believe have been performing terribly in the ratings.

Crisis is averaging a meager 1.1 in the 18-49 demographic with 4.48 million viewers. Believe is averaging a 1.3 in the demo with 5.45 million. Both shows drew a 1.0 in the demo this past Sunday and have each dropped below a ratings point in the past few weeks.

Both shows were already off the schedule this Sunday and are now expected to return on Sunday, May 25th. They each have 13 episodes in their respective seasons. Eight episodes of Crisis and nine episodes of Believe have aired so far.

Hopefully NBC will run all of the episodes. Hoepfully the finales will cap the series in satisfying ways. Unless there’s some kind of miracle, neither of these shows will be returning for a second season.

What do you think? If you were running the network, would you cancel both of these shows? Do you think one is better than the other?

Can’t believe they cancelled BOTH of those shows. They were two of my favorites.

I thoroughly enjoyed Believe. It was finally a feel good kind of show. Something positive and inspiring…..please don’t take it away after only one season. At least give us a happy ending.

My daughter bought me the season on Amazon prime. I watch it whenever I want to. It has one show on it that didn’t air because it was cancelled. It will always be on my cable box. Really loved that show. NBC made a big mistake! Sows like svu are on for over ten years, but they won’t give a family show a shot!
