the forgotten: Petition to Continue the ABC TV Series

the forgottenThis new Christian Slater drama follows a group of civilians who donate their time to help identify murder victims and solve their cases. Unfortunately, the forgotten isn’t catching on and the show looks like its going to end up being cancelled — and forgotten — by ABC.

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. Downloading, viewing online, or watching a recording many days later is all very nice but it really doesn’t help a show’s ratings.

If you like the forgotten and want to see it continue, there are a few things you can do to help.

  1. Watch the show each week, preferably live, and encourage others to do the same. 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 emotionally invested in gets people interested.
  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. Stephen McPherson, Chairman, ABC, 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521, RE: the forgotten
  1. Take note of the products that you see advertised consistently 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, Bonanza Productions, Jerry Bruckheimer Television, and Warner Bros. Television:

We, the undersigned, greatly enjoy watching the new the forgotten TV show on the ABC network. It is a gripping drama that keeps us on the edge of our seats. It’s a great medical show with lots of action, interesting stories, and interesting characters.

Please find a way to keep the forgotten 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 channel.

Thank you for your consideration.

    It is sad to see that an amazing show gets cancelled! I hope you could consider putting the show back, I am sure that it will be a great return with an enormous rating. As I can see I am not the only one interesting in having The Forgotten show back. I hope this petition as the others make a difference. Thank you for your time.

    Another show, taken off before the company realised what they had was actually better than they realised.
  • KaleyCountry: USA2012-07-14 08:26:00
    I miss the forgotten! Honestly have to say it was one of the best shows I've ever watched. I'd watch it again if they brought it back!
  • SandyCountry: USA2012-07-12 06:24:35
    I REALLY miss the show The Forgotten! Too many good shows are taken off the air & replaced with rediculous reality shows. Please bring back The Forgotten!
  • MattCountry: United Kingdom2012-06-11 02:51:48

    There are alot of cop shows on all the time. This show beats them all. The Forgotten is one of the best. Please don't cancel the show. Put it on a different day or a different time. You always seem to get rid of the good shows and keep the dumb on. Leave the forgotten on please
  • Steve RothCountry: USA2012-05-06 13:27:48
    Please renew The Unforgotten program. I think its one of the more interesting programs on TV and the main character's role is starting to evolve. .
  • randy jonesCountry: usa2012-03-08 08:42:49
    if there is no chance this will air,at least you can put it on dvd or did you not think of that, at least give me a chance to make up my mind!!!
  • Olive BrownCountry: United States2011-09-19 09:19:48
    Love this show,it's unique and feel good. With all the other crime dramas that are so violent and depressing,it's nice to have one that at least resolves things. It's also more compassionate and current than coldcase. Please keep it,even if you have to find a different time slot,love Christian slater and the other characters that could be developed more.
  • Brigid Country: USA2011-09-14 11:32:26
    The Forgotten was an amazing show. Please continue it. If not can you at least make a dvd of the season and sell it cause know i can never find a way to watch it.
  • MelissaCountry: USA2011-09-07 15:12:48
    Please continue The Forgotten. It was a great show. Christian Slater did an amazing job , as well as his supporting cast members. Stop getting rid of the good shows and replacing them with boring talkshows or reality crap. Good my choice anyday.
  • Felicia SusantoCountry: Indonesia2011-08-27 00:22:41
    I love the forgotten series. Please don't stop the show. Many thanks

    05-28-2011 I can tell you part of the problem with The Forgotten. You put the pilot on and then it wasn't on for a couple of weeks and some people forgot about it. I think it was also up against something else at the time like the super bowl, I can't quite remember. Please bring back The Forgotten. It was a great show and Christian Slater and his team did a great job. Plan carefully what you put it up against. Sports for one, kills a lot of good programs. A lot of us are sick of all these talk shows and reality shows. I for one would rather watch a good drama any day. I have heard this from others too. The good ones always get cancelled. Some of them never got a chance because of other shows they were up against in the same time slot. Thank you for reading and hopefully you will reconsider and give it another chance.
