Kings: Petition to Continue the NBC TV Show

KingsThere’s no denying that NBC’s Kings has some serious problems in the ratings department. Despite a prestigious cast, some positive reviews, and a great deal of promotion, Kings’ premiere failed to attract a large audience. Of course, Sunday nights are filled with tough competition like Desperate Housewives, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and The Amazing Race. If the poor ratings continue, the network will have to make some changes — either pull the series off the air or at best, burn the episodes off on a little-watched night like Saturday. In any case, there’s little chance they’ll be renewing the show for a second season.

If you’d like to see Kings continue, there are a few things you can do:

Tell your friends and family members to tune in and watch episodes on NBC. If that’s not possible, encourage them to watch online. Maybe one of them is secretly a “Nielsen family” or knows one.

Write to NBC. Let the network know how you feel and keep it civil. Everyone responds best to courtesy.

Sign the petition below and let the network execs know you’ve signed it. Spread the word and ask others to do the same. But do it quickly — it’s going to take more than a royal command to save this one.

To: Universal Media Studios and NBC

We, the undersigned, enjoy watching the Kings TV show on NBC. The series is interesting and complex. It is an epic story that has depth that few other shows on television have. The acting and writing is superb and has us wanting more.

The show was originally going to air on another night. If viewers aren’t watching on Sundays, how about relaunching it and moving the series to another night?

Please keep producing and airing Kings. It is truly a unique and worthwhile show.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Please bring back kings, I own the dvds and digital copies. I love this show, it was smart, intreging, and just entertaining. At least have a TV movie or mini series to sum it all up. Truly one of my most favorite shows! BRING IT BACK!!!

    Loved 'Kings.' It was a such a great show. I just finished watching the DVDs for the third time and keep imagining what was going to happen in Season 2. I accept that it will never happen, but I wanted to express my love for the show and my support of more seasons... Thanks for such a great show.

    I, my husband, and a friend all just finished re-watching the first season of Kings. I have no idea why this show was ever cancelled. There aren't many shows left out there with depth and meaning like what Kings gave us. We couldn't turn away from this show, even seeing it the 2nd time around, watching multiple episodes every night and having to tear ourselves away from going "one more episode" further despite it being 2am. This show was not only well written, but well-acted. This story needs to be needs to continue. Bring it back. And after such a long break since the end of the last season, I can imagine the hype surrounding it's return would make NBC certain that it would not be sorry for giving it another chance. There is so much crap on TV nowadays that people are chomping at the bit for a great show to watch. So, come on NBC...step up...and Kings will find itself held among the ranks of amazing shows like Breaking Bad and Dexter. It can come back with the success that Family Guy did after it was cancelled.

    Please, please, PLEASE bring back Kings. It is my favorite series, and I truly believe it deserves a second chance. I miss this show and its superb cast. Also, I really can't handle cliffhangers like the one Kings 'ended' with!!!
  • BeckyCountry: USA2014-06-24 08:56:07
    This was truly a brilliant show. I would love to see it return.

    Kings is a unique TV series. Maybe in 2009 when it originally aired it wasn't time yet to view, EVERTHING HAS IT'S TIME. However I can guaranteed in 2014 the ratings will be soring. This is a NEW time and YEAR, people are more subtle and ready for something different, surprising and unique as KINGS TV series. Please return the series it has power, suspense, and intensity. This is the third time I am watching all the way to Season 1 Episode 13 series. I TRULY MISS THE SERIES. PRO-NBCTV ADVOCATE.

    I realize that this will mean nothing to NBC. But I find that after I have watched this series over again, I am nostalgic for it's prose. Shakespeare would have made even more plays and sonnets if he had known Ian would be reading them daily. I mean really, the man is a king of pentameter and can make anything sound like a symphony. Chris and Sebastian, I know you are young and moved onward and upward but this show really needs your faces again. And I (for realz) want to see Susanna and Allison kick everyones as at who can play royal best. I mean come on!

    Dear NBC, Bring back kings you incompetent bunch of fucking retards. It may be the only show you have ever broadcasted that didnt make me wish i was used for stem cell research 25 years ago. Im sure the whole world is just dieing for another epp of community. That show is so fucking dreadful it actually has an odor. Joel mchale is about as good at acting as Michael J. Fox is at playing jenga. Than theres Parks and rec- Amy Poehler looks like someone superglued a blonde wig to a ziplock bag full of mayonnaise and is about as funny as leukemia. Face it you guys kind of suck so play something that doesnt, bring back Kings. Thank you!

    Yes...I discovered this amazing and in some ways 'life changing' show only recently...but, one who knows even a little about the Bible is able to conjure the Story of a true King and his undeniable kingdom. There are so many truths with just enough 'nuances' to make even a nonbelievers heart to stir and take notice!!What a remarkable 'show'...only in this day would it be told as such...but, the real Goliath lies dead and David's seed prepared the throne of the One True King. Please resurrect Kings...and the crown to be worn.

    This show needs to return. Return of the kings!!!
  • Savannah hammondCountry: United states2013-06-13 14:31:49
    Should have never cancelled this well put together the first season im sure if the time slot was better and it was marketed better it would get ratings.
  • Darrick tCountry: U.S2013-06-12 16:02:13
    I love this show please bring it back!!

    I know im late to this party but I have found out about this show from hulu, I was recommended this show and decided to give the pilot a shot. about 15 hours later(bathroom and eating breaks included) I finished the series. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed the show I was disappointed that there was no second season. I would love to see what happens next in the story so far, but I understand that you will not fund a show that didn't meet your expectations in the rating department. However I came with a compromise. If we crowd fund the show, through kickstarter or some other service, will you air it? or at least let Netflix or Hulu host it(much like their doing for Arrested Development) or at least let the producer finish the story with a movie? You don't even have to advertise it! just let us use the copyright to start a kickstarter to completely fund another season(or a movie) and if the audience grows and has a better reception then last time you can continue it. if not at least the fan got their second season(which they funded themselves) please something to revive this!

    Just found this series on Netflix and its amazing! Very well written and superb acting! Would love to see this come back. Fox cancelled Family Guy and brought it back to see much success, why not Kings?
  • Graham DougalsCountry: United States of America2013-03-13 19:55:12
    Kings was well written with an excellent cast. The fans deserve a second season.

    Producers need to start realizing that cancelling show simply because the neilson ratings are low does not mean (1) it isn't a good show and (2) people aren't watching it. Most young people today watch the majority of tv on the internet so when you judge a show by its ratings that are up against horrible reality tv(watched by the majority of non-internet tv watchers), it isn't a very good measure of a shows quality. These decisions need to stop being based on such archaic judgement systems and more on QUALITY! Money isn't everything and frankly, even with show ratings low, the show is still making gobs of cash. Stop the greed! Kings was a great show with great characters, acting and intrigue. Cancelling shows based upon comparative ratings and income alone is precisely why younger generations have stopped watching your and other major networks! We're tired of starting to watch something and then have it be pulled because of these greedy, money based reasons. Find a different way to review the worthiness of programs and perhaps you will see how many people actually watch and like things before you cancel them. Bring Kings back and finish the story!!
