The Event: Petition and Ways to Support the NBC TV Show

The Event TV showThere are lots of mysteries on NBC’s The Event. What’s not a mystery is that, in order for a TV show to continue, it must get high ratings. The Event hasn’t and as a result it will very likely 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 Event 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 Event
  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, Steve Stark Productions, and Universal Media Studios:

We, the undersigned, enjoy watching The Event on the NBC network. This TV show keeps us on the edge of our seats every week, trying to guess what will come next.

Please find a way to keep The Event 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.

    It seems like every good show that is aired that's of alien base or supernatural gets cancelled. I have no idea why possibly air time or people record it or even like me either watch the shows on Hulu or download because of a busy life style. Anyways THE EVENT is amazing just watched season 1 on Hulu and all I can say is wow, so where the hell is season 2? I say season 2 should be hyped up and advertised and no doubt people will go online and watch season 1. Watching the tv show the 100 now and all I can think about is wow this show is so good it's a shame it's going to be cancelled more than likely.

    I watched the entire first and only season of The Event with my parents, daughter, four sister's, my brother, two nieces and six nephews without taking a break. None of us have ever done this with any other series. This was like nothing I've seen before, I kept telling myself, "one more episode" and I'll call it quits for night, but after every episode I kept wanting, needing to see the next. I couldn't wait. My entire family couldn't wait so we finished the first season after accidentally finding it vOn Demand. My family, along with myself believe it was a mistake to cancel this show. The writers, actors and producers of this amazing show are too talented to nut continue. Please bring The Event back to stay. The Pruneaus are ready for another moviethon!

    Absolutely one of the "good" Shows... It's a shame that it was cancelled. Please continue this outstanding story!
  • dustinCountry: united states2014-02-22 10:55:57
    The show was awesome! Except for that crap where they keep on going back in time like "5 days earlier" or "2yrs earlier". But overall its good. I knew it was going yo kick a** the next season when they teleported their home planet to earth. Ready for season 2 please!!!

  • Carol ChildCountry: USA2014-02-07 23:50:09
    I've just discovered the show,and I'm thrilled with it! And so saddened to find that it was cancelled. How could the ratings drop? People must be morons. I'm not good with the Internet, but is there a chance the show will ever come back? I've lost so many terrific programs. Thank you for what I've been able to watch. Sincerely, Carol Child

    I absolutely loved this show! I have probably watched the whole first season on Netflix about four times. I need a second season even if it is only a few episodes to tie up loose ends. You brought another planet into the mix and now what? Please bring the show back!!
  • David GarciaCountry: USA 2014-01-28 17:37:54
    Please bring back the event, I just saw the first season on amazon prime and it was great. Too many shows; heroes, V, Jericho, and now The Event, are being canceled too quick with no regards to the fans who watch it. Please bring it back.
  • RachCountry: USA2014-01-17 16:39:34
    Please Please Please bring this show back!! I've watched season 1 on Netflix in a 2 day time span and I have to say that I will never understand why the show was cancelled. It has an amazing cast, and the storyline is like no other show I've watched lately. This is a chance to have a different show on television. So please, give us Event fans our show back, we need to know what will happen to Sean and Leila, what will happen to President Martinez and his wife. We have to assume Christina is a Sleeper, but we need another season to let us know!! I beg you, along with everyone else who signed this petition to bring the show back!!!

    Cant cope without season 2
  • PatrickCountry: Austria2013-12-11 16:49:56
    Great show that needs to go on. Very promising and better than most current shows of that kind. I am also sick of nr. 10 of the same kind of show, give us something new... hey wait, you do, but cancel it... duh...
  • Beverly VokounCountry: USA2013-12-06 19:20:57
    You knew before the ending of Season 1, that you wouldn't renew The Event and yet you still just kept what was already written and didn't bother to spend a little extra to write a new ending. You are such pieces of shit !!!!!!!!!
  • WolfCountry: USA2013-11-29 13:46:11
    Why would you cancel the show? It is so different from the shows that are currently running. I am so tired of Cop-Lawyer and Doctor show's. They are all so predictable.Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
  • NiharikaCountry: India2013-11-19 09:53:31
    Please please please don't leave us event fans hanging like this. I will do anything to see at least an ending without a acliffhanger. The last episode revealed something so shocking and then just poof! it's over! I might try to make some kind of ense in mind as to how it is, but i will never come to terms with the fact that I will never know if Leila survives or if Christina is a sleeper of if the "Event" actually takes place, how Sean stops it and whatit is. How does the planet even land? And how were they here before us? You can't possibly leave SO many questions unanswered.Just a few more episodes.Come on.
  • CatherineCountry: USA2013-11-14 11:40:10
    I just watched this on Netflix...I watched every episode back to back! I NEED to know what is going to happen. Please bring this show back, or at least have Netflix produce, hell I'd even watch on SyFy. When and if you decide to bring this show back, please please do not let the baby be the saviour of the world?!?!?!
  • rick smithCountry: us2013-11-13 00:15:31
    Season 2 for the event.
