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?

    We have just had our viewing of this excellent action thriller moved from it’s 8.30 pm time slot to 11.30 pm at night due to what our TV Channel is saying poor ratings here in New Zealand. What I wish to know is just how is those so called ratings worked out as I believe it is an old excuse that TV Channels have used for years yet, nobody has ever asked me about what I want to watch. Why do the dicks that make shows for TV think we all want to watch reality crap…

    Really like Crisis. Surely do hope we get to see the final 5 episodes! The story is intriguing, the action is amazingly realistic….

      I wonder since NBC (and if they are getting our comments) has an overwhelming group of replies that are asking for CRISIS not to be cancelled what they are going to do. To bad they are not ABC and could farm it out to a parent company to continue broadcasting. I hope someone pick it up like USA, TNT even TBS. AMC seems to like grit maybe they will give them a shot. I hope the producers/writers are looking to farm this out to other networks because clearly this is NBC loss.
