Off the Map: Petition and Ways to Support the ABC TV Show

Off the Map TV showThe doctors on Off the Map do their best to save lives under the toughest of conditions. Unfortunately, it’s the ABC TV show may not make it. The ratings aren’t good so it looks very likely that it will 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 Off the Map 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 ABC.com 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: Off the Map
  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).

To ABC, ABC Studios, and Shondaland Productions:

We, the undersigned, like watching Off the Map on the ABC network. The series has strong characters, great actors and engaging storylines in a unique setting. It’s not a run-of-the-mill show.

Please find a way to keep Off the Map 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.

    This serial is so great. I learned so many lessons from the film, the characters are so great in giving me the feelings of the condition and my brother and I always waiting for the next story. We've just finished watch it from DVD because we can't watch the full episodes from TV. We watched it before in Star World but imagine, when some other movies shown like five times even more, Off The Map was didn't. Even, its 2 episodes shown in the middle of the night (around 2-4 am, Indonesia Greenwich time is +7), of course we couldn't watch it. So what I'm trying to tell in here is, this is a very great show. Its story in every episodes, how it tangled to each other, plus the actors/actresses are very great and it's different, it shows so many complexity of doctors' life. It can be enjoyed by many people that isn't interested in medicine world. Trust me. So, last words, Please Consider Our Request As Fans Of Off The Map, To Continue With OTM Season 2. We're waiting for the good news. Oh and my brother just add some words, he said that maybe the show should be played at the right time and of course repeat it many times, surely people will watch it, it REALLY WORTH A SHOT. Thanks a lot :)

    I just finished watching Off the Map and i'm totally hooked to it!! I loved it right from the start! I fell in love with the story and the characters! I found it much more interesting and entertaining than the other medical dramas I've seen. Every story line for each episode is very realistic and unpredictable.That show has meaningful moral value than the other show which abc renewed and maybe the other show only give us some sex and sex all over again. I like this SO much better than anything else ABC has to offer this year. I loved Off the Map way more than grey's anatomy or other doctor tv shows I want to be a doctor, and the show makes me realized that be a doctor is ordinary. I want to be a doctor like in ‘off the map’, help people but in the other hand, they enjoy their life. I immediately checked the net to see if season 2 is available already. To my dismay, I found out that it was cancelled. I was dumbfounded, I almost cried When I read an article explaining its cancellation, I couldn't believe it. How could ABC cancel it?? They didn't even have the decency to end it properly. So what if it got the lowest views? Maybe if ABC gave it a better time slot, like maybe when people are still up and doing about their business?? Maybe if ABC had advertised it the way our local channel here did, then maybe people could have had a better idea of what it was about.ABC just rate from American people,what about other country? Now ABC has left us wondering what's going to happen next, and it's the not the best feeling in the world. I fervently hope that someone from ABC reads all this petitions and be bold enough to bring this up in their board meeting or something like that. Please, please, please bring Off the Map back!! Please give us season 2 and all the seasons to come until it comes to an end. I will surely miss this series :( Please don't leave us hanging in the air. Bring back Off The Map, I beg u with all my heart. thanks for ur time :)

  • Jolene SimCountry: Malaysia2013-01-24 07:21:11
    I was hooked even when the 1st episode just started! It should get one more chance. I'm sure that it was probably due to many unforeseen circumstances and ratings were probably not well as it didn't premier well.
  • KarolinaCountry: Poland2012-12-15 12:12:14
    I can't understand why the show is cancelled. It should get one more chance. This is the best show ever.

    I just finished watching Off the Map and i'm totally hooked to it!! It was advertised in one of our local channels here in the Philippines. I loved it right from the start! I ended up cancelling all my duties for the day so I could finished all the episodes! I fell in love with the story and the characters! I found it much more interesting and entertaining than the other medical dramas I've seen. Every story line for each episode is very realistic and unpredictable. I come from the health care work force so I can very much relate to all the scenarios that had been shown in each episode. It was just a joy to watch! The drama showed more promise than anything I've ever seen. I immediately checked the net to see if season 2 is available already. To my dismay, I found out that it was cancelled. I was dumbfounded, I almost cried. It felt like I was reading a very good book and later found out that some pages are missing. When I read an article explaining its cancellation, I couldn't believe it. How could ABC cancel it?? They didn't even have the decency to end it properly. So what if it got the lowest views? Maybe if ABC gave it a better time slot, like maybe when people are still up and doing about their business?? Maybe if ABC had advertised it the way our local channel here did, then maybe people could have had a better idea of what it was about.

    We just finished watching Off the Map on dvd and were left very frustrated by the abrupt ending! Even if ABC cancelled the show, they should have least have made a further episode to give all it's fans a proper feeling of closure! Better still, bring it back on TV and then on dvd so we can watch more.....please...please!

    I am so tired of the networks taking all the good programs off. This was the best I have seen in a long time. I think maybe the problem may have been the scheduling. There are a number of TV series I watch and I can't remember but I think I had to flip back an forth to watch the ones on at the same time. I purchased the DVD series and JUST LOVE IT. BUT would love to see it continue and finish up or put it in a book so I can get to the end. Thanks for you time.
  • Lynn GoudeCountry: USA2012-11-25 01:58:09
    Love the show I hope something will be done to get it back up.
  • AnaCountry: Spain2012-11-19 15:07:49
    Please bring back Off the map !
  • KaitlynCountry: United States2012-11-06 19:14:45
    Cancelling this show, killing off Lexi on Grey's Anatomy, and killing Mike on Desperate Housewives have officially made me give a big middle finger to ABC. The only chance of me watching a show on ABC ever again is if they bring back Off The Map. They can't un-kill characters but they can bring this show back. I'm over this channel, all they do is ruin their own great shows. :(
