Revolution: Cancelled by NBC, No Season Three

NBC Revolution ratingsHow times have changed. Last year, Revolution looked like it was the big hit of the 2012-13 season. Now, NBC has cancelled it, according to TV Guide.

Revolution revolves around the Matheson family and others who live in a world where there is no longer any power. The cast includes Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, JD Pardo, Stephen Collins, and Elizabeth Mitchell.

Following The Voice, Revolution started out very strong last year but the numbers fell as the season progressed. NBC renewed it for a full season off 22 episodes anyway and relocated it to Wednesdays at 8pm. It’s really struggled in that timeslot and this week fell to a 1.2 demo rating with 3.78 million viewers — an all-time low.

Not surprisingly, NBC has decided not to order a third season. There are two installments remaining and they will air on May 14th and May 21st. The final episode of ABC’s Mixology will also air on the latter date.

What do you think? Did you stick with Revoluton? If you ran the network, would you have cancelled the show or renewed it for a third season?

I have mixed feelings about this show being dropped. I did enjoy the show a lot BUT it was starting to get a bit old. Same old same old same old. Miles and Monroe in impossible situations again and again. They could have give it a third season then wrapped it up something like Battle Star Galactica. At least give us fans some closure. ( Or give the world power back) Letting everyone hang was what I call an “O shit” ending. Meaning O shit I watched the whole thing!

Revolution, a quality show. Very creative and entertaining. You, have done poor research and cancelled this show. It is always so normal to think that because a show isn’t a smash hit right away, that it won’t be one. Shows like modern family, housewives of dirtdom seem to be done over and over, go get your big bucks on the depravity on modern mankind. There are still people in this country who want quality program. Next time, don’t put these programs to air on Wednesdays or Sundays. We are at our local churches and would enjoy programs such as Revolution on any other day. We Christians are not ignorant, we know good writing, acting and directing when we see it. So go ahead and put your money on shows depicting women of extreme poor morals or shows depicting families without moral fiber. May I add, Shows like Preachers of LA, are just as immoral, no thanks.
Good luck with that,
