No Ordinary Family: Petition and Ways to Support the ABC TV Show

No Ordinary Family TV showThe Powell family are learning how to use their amazing new powers to help the world. Unfortunately, they’re not going to be able to do that much longer. The ratings for ABC’s No Ordinary Family have not been good and the series is sure to be cancelled.

What can you do? Remember, the ideal scenario for ABC is for many millions of people to watch the show on their television sets, while it’s being broadcast. Unfortunately, ratings are put together based on a sampling of viewers. If you’re a “Nielsen household,” your viewing is being counted. If not, it’s not.

However, if you like No Ordinary Family and want to see it continue, there are a few things you can do to help.

  1. If you’re a Nielsen family, watch the show whenever it’s on. If not, watch it on or purchase episodes online so your viewing will be directly counted. Encourage others to watch the show. You might know a Nielsen family and not be aware of it.
  1. Talk about the show with others; at school, at work, online, or wherever. Creating a buzz about a show that you’re invested in gets other people interested and might help bring former viewers back.
  1. Sign the petition below and encourage others to do the same.
  1. Write to the network. Be respectful. Everyone responds better to courtesy. Tell them how much you enjoy the show, that you’ve signed the petition, and that you want to see it continue. You can use this form or, even better, write via “snail-mail” to: Mr. Paul Lee, President, ABC, 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521, RE: No Ordinary Family
  1. Call the network at (818) 460-7477 and leave a comment. Be polite and tell them how much you like the show.
  1. Take note of the products that are advertised during the show. Write the advertisers and tell them that you appreciate their sponsoring the show and that you buy their products (if you do).
  1. Check out the list of efforts started by some devoted fans on the ABC site.

To ABC, ABC Studios, and Berlanti Television:

We, the undersigned, like watching No Ordinary Family on the ABC network. The show has the right blend of heroic action, drama, and humor.

Please find a way to keep No Ordinary Family on the air. We are devoted viewers who will continue to watch the program, encourage others to do the same, and will support the series’ advertisers as well. Please keep it going, either on ABC or, if necessary, on another Disney-owned channel.

Thank you for your consideration.

    its unfair to leave it open ended like that if you new that it was going to be cancelled prior to the last episode then you should of ended it appropratly thats 900 mins of peoples time you have wasted time is important and the veiwers make abc sucssefull therefore youve lost a veiwer to the channel full stop. hope you dont loose any. also was a great show, but unfortunatally it was due to a poor insight threw abc mananagement. the first season was character development the second could have been the excitment. abc with the right means you could have get your veiwers back.

    I have started to watch No Ordinary Family over the last couple days. I have introduced family and friends and they have become as hooked as I. I have been waiting for this show for years but after poor advertisement I forgot about the show. Later finally finding it on UK Netflix. I have finished season one and am horrified to find out that season two has been cancelled. I put it down to poor advertisement. We need more of this show. It has been left on a eyeball wrenching cliff hanger and it needs to be finished.....

    You all did an amazing job. Even though it's been years this show is great. I started watching it when it first came out on tv and have the DVD set. My heart goes out to the whole cast and crew and say thank you for creating such a wonderful show and hope maybe later on get a reboot like some other shows.

    I just watched the whole season 1 on YouTube in 3 days... and cannot believe that it was not renewed. There is so much potential to explore numerous story lines on many levels. I am sorry that I did not get on board 4/5 years ago. Love the cast, the writing, and the production.

    I love the show a lot, I mean we, with my friends. its an amazing movie series, lots of excitement and lessons to learn, not that to learn super powers but to learn many lessons regarding families. i know its almost 4 years ago but we love the movie. soo much better with other series, not to say those series's nowadays. I know it would gain higher ratings this time with the cast, they were blended. please have the series back. ill support you a hundred percent. please. From: Philippines here.

    Just finished watching no ordinary family again on Netflix Would love to see a second series or writers to write a book of what would have happened next! Sales of such a book would tell how many fans would love to see a second series.

    I strongly believe that no ordinary family should carry on for it was an enjoyable show. Many votes out there to ask about whether it should be kept were strongly on the side of keeping the programme. please bring us season 2!
  • LydiaCountry: United Kingdom2014-06-30 18:27:59
    Just watched the first season on Netflix and loved it. It was really well done and enjoyable and the last episode set up perfectly for there to be a second series. Please bring back No Ordinary Family!!

  • CaitlinCountry: United Kingdom 2014-06-03 09:03:11
    What a great series! Fantastic cast and concept piece which sits in between the normal tv genres. Maybe this is why it was cancelled, but it is also why it is important and fantastic! Something new and original. A lot of people are discovering it through netflix now, especially people outside the U.S. Please start series 2 - there is enough demand now!

  • Tevin maysCountry: United States2014-04-01 10:41:28
    I started watching the series again.. On hulu because ABC cancelled it.. No ordinary family was an AMAZING show and would have had more ratings given a second chance.. It might sound weird but seeing how the show ended I kinda thought of some of my own ways to start off the second season.. I have no experience writing scripts but my imagination is massive.. This was one of my FAVORITE SHOWS and now that I watched the whole season over and it's ended and I have no idea as to what happens next.. Then depression sets in.. Please bring back no ordinary family.. It doesn't have to be for ABC.. Or maybe ABC can do a better job at promoting the show.. Just bring the show back please.. Sincerely No ordinary fan,
