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 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.

    What a great show. I'm so sorry I missed in when it originally aired. Just caught the whole series on DVD and was instantly hooked. Great premise and even better writing! Bring it back! Or at least have a mini-series event!

    You brought back Star Trek. It became a fantastic hit over the decades. Please bring back The Event, or give the rights to some group that will continue the show. Cheers, and please stop canceling great TV programs!

    This show is great entertainment. I didn't catch it on television but on Hulu. I watched full season in 3 days. Its keeps you on edge..just the type I would pay to see. Brief summary... Please please continue the show. It would be greatly appreciated.

    Please continue this fantastic series. I just recently discovered it and couldn't stop watching until I reached the end. Following up, the first thing I did was to find out when Season 2 will start, which brought me ot this petition. I think the story is amazing and the actors did a great job. Thank you for making a series like this!
  • Nancy PaulCountry: USA2015-05-16 18:27:41
    I just finished watching the last episode of The Event. If this series were to be continued, I would be among the fans anxiously waiting for the rest of the story. There are so many possibilities. Please give strikes consideration to continuing the saga. Thank you
  • CharlesCountry: USA2015-05-14 13:58:49
    I would love to see a final season, just because of the obvious, and intense interest that this petition is part of exposing. this was one of the genuine 'winners' of modern television, and I know that executives are smart enough to see this. so what is stopping this from going forward?
  • Ryan DominguezCountry: United States2015-04-30 13:40:34
    The Event was my favorite show on TV and the only one that kept me glued to the screen. Please bring this show back.
  • Robert SweetingCountry: Bahamas2015-04-08 18:18:19
    I am an avid supporter of The Event and have watched every episode that has been broadcast. I love this show please try to find a way to get it going again...
  • Billy C.Country: United States2015-04-05 18:06:27
    I just finished watching the box set of the Event that I got for Christmas. This is too good of a series to not keep it going. I'd love to see this resurrected even if we're four years after it was cancelled.
  • Keith L. EcharCountry: U. S. A.2015-03-31 05:42:39
    Please return this show to television.
  • mickeyCountry: united States2015-03-25 01:01:23
    I'm 4 years late but, never heard of it before just watched season 1 on hulu. Really upset that there isn't a season 2. Wish there was can't believe it ended like that.
  • Trevor GreenCountry: Canada2015-03-23 09:28:51
    Excellent show. Low ratings is likely due to lack of advertising of the show. I just finished watching the first season as I never heard about it when it first aired!
  • JTCountry: UK2015-03-18 18:36:03
    I'll pay
  • Debi CreedeCountry: USA2015-03-18 08:09:59
    I recently found this series on Hulu and I love it! I cant believe such a good show was cancelled. I would rather watch this show over the stuff that is on tv now! I love it so much that I have been looking on the internet to see if a book was written so I can keep following the series but so far no luck!!! Please bring it back and replace the boring tv shows! This one is a keeper!
  • JanisCountry: USA2015-03-09 23:04:41
