Crisis: New TV Show Cancelled by NBC

Crisis TV show canceled on NBCNBC is cleaning house on Sunday nights. They’ll surely cancel American Dream Builders, they’ve cancelled Believe and they’ve also cancelled Crisis as well.

An action/thriller series, Crisis finds out what might happen if the children of powerful people from Washington, DC were to be taken prisoner. The cast includes Dermot Mulroney, Rachael Taylor, Lance Gross, James Lafferty, Max Martini, Michael Beach, Stevie Lynn Jones, Halston Sage, Max Schneider, Joshua Erenberg, and Gillian Anderson.

Unfortunately, this show seemed doomed from the start. It debuted to lackluster ratings and the numbers sank lower and lower each week. At one point, Crisis drew just a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.73 million viewers.

On the upside, it seems likely that NBC will release of the remaining episodes. Eight of the 13 episodes have aired so far.

What do you think? Are you sorry that there won’t be a second season of Crisis or is one season the right amount? Should it have been cancelled?

    I can’t believe that they are cancelling this show. Does NBC have sh## for brains! This show is amazing! Watching it is kind of like watching an episode of 24….leaves you on the edge of your seat. Like all TV stations, start a new show, get people hooked, and then cancel it..typical huh!! Perhaps the ratings are low because the NHL playoffs are under way, or perhaps viewers are downloading it to watch the next day PVR, torrent…whatever….. the producers really need to rethink there decision!!!!

    I can’t believe they are canceling Crisis! Idiots!!! I really like it. I’m getting so sick of really enjoying new shows and then they just cancel them. They should and least let us see the end! Well at least I don’t have to worry about revenge, the following and scandal being cancelled:)

    Networks don’t care about the acting, story lines or the actors. It all comes down to the viewership numbers and ratings so they can market the shows to the advertisers. They don’t even have to watch the shows, they just get their numbers and decide if a shows stays or goes.

    End of the day it all comes down to making money.

    Wow , this upsets me . My whole family watched the show . Being fans of Revenge on ABC 7 , put us in the position to choose between the two . I am sure i speak for everyone , that there were too many good shows on at the same time . What did they expect ? Crisis was definitely viewed by many , but from DVR . PLEASE renew it !! It sucks really getting comfortable with the characters and the story plot and never knowing what will happen . Why would playing the remaining episodes make sense , when its just a slap in the face to those who were fans of this AMAZING show? In that case maybe we should all watch the remaining episodes and bring in soo many views , just to send them a message . Maybe they’ll reconsider 😉

    SERIOUSLY?????!!! YOU ARE CANCELLING THIS SHOW???
    WHY, WHY, WHY? WHERE DO YOU FIND THESE NUMSKULLS AND GIVE THEM AUTHORITY TO SQUASH A SHOW LIKE THIS.

    THIS HAD A GREAT PLOT/STORY LINE, THE ACTING IS SUPERB AND THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES WERE WATCHING AND COULDN’T WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK’S SHOW TO AIR. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????!!!!!!

    I WILL BET THE DUMMIES IN CHARGE OF CANCELLING SHOWS DON’T EVEN WATCH THE SHOWS. HOW IN THE HELL DO THEY GET AWAY WITH THIS?

    THOSE OF YOU IN CHARGE NEED TO SERIOUSLY RE THINK WHO YOU PLACE IN CHARGE OF PROGRAMMING AND CANCELLING BECAUSE WHAT YOU ARE DOING SO FAR DOES NOT WORK.

    I’M DONE!!!
