The Cape: Petition and Ways to Help Save the NBC Series

The Cape TV showHeroes, a show about modern-day superheroes, lasted four seasons on NBC on Monday nights. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like the new hero series called The Cape will last nearly as long. It’s tanking in the ratings, had its episode order cut, and is sure to be cancelled.

What can you do? Remember, the ideal scenario for NBC 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 The Cape 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 NBC.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. Bob Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC, 3000 W. Alameda, Burbank, CA 91523, RE: The Cape
  1. Take note of the products that are advertised during the show. Contact the advertisers and tell them that you appreciate their sponsoring the show and that you buy their products (if you do).

To NBC, BermanBraun, and Universal Media Studios:

We, the undersigned, enjoy watching The Cape on the NBC network. This TV show is a great superhero action series that is unique and fun to watch.

Please find a way to keep The Cape 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 NBC or, if necessary, on another NBC-related channel. If that’s not possible, please find a way to wrap up the story.

Thank you for your consideration.

    I can't believe they just canceled The Cape after 10 episodes and all of us that we're watching we're left hanging! Shame on you for doing that to your viewers!

    I for one am appalled that you would cancel a quality show such as this and keep some of the garbage you choose to air. Because of the junk you air I haven't actually watch NBC in years, just so you know.

    Just watched the full season on Netflix. What a great show. Great cast, awesome acting and special effects. Even if regular broadcast networks don't ever give this a second glance (even you, SyFy), Netflix should think about putting out another season like they did for Arrested Development. I also vote for a Cape movie!!!!!!

    I wish that would bring back the show but at the least they should make a movie out of it because leaving the show the way they did was just plain wrong, the show deserves an ending!!
