The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

I think you need to promote it more on CW like the other tv shows get, and the show got better as it went along there isn’t very many shows on that are as good as this one and it has progressed along very well all new shows are slow to begin with.. don’t know to many who do good in the first season give it one more try PLEASE :)

Please don’t cancel this Great show. Show more previews to make more viewers aware and show repeats during their hiatus.

Cult started off poorly, was quickly and very well retooled. The problem was to get people to give it another chance, or a chance in the first place.

Watching what the show became you almost would not recognize it. Dialogue vastly improved, storyline and characters became not only 3 dimensional but deep, and even the plotlines, although purposely done to let you know it was a TV show in the TV show and less real, were getting compelling enough that you would understand there was obsessed fans.

Robert Kneppler’s and miss Nelson’s chemistry would be enough to hold a person’s interest.

The end of the series was a cliffhanger and I hope they use it as a springboard to launch an entirely new show and bring over some of the talent they polished for the last episodes.

I am not going to hold my breath though.

I really liked the premise of a show within a show – with good actors already signed on board, CW should give this one another chance, air the rest of the shows and go for a 2nd season – allow more time build up a bigger fan base – I for one am not a reality show viewer – CW . . . take a lesson from Firefly and don’t cancel so quickly

How can you cancel shows like The Secret Circle and Cult but keep Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast on? At least I still have my Supernatural.
