The Gates: Petition to Save the ABC TV Show from Being Cancelled

The Gates tv showThere’s a lot of incredible things going on in the Gates community. As unbelievable as it might seem, the show’s ratings haven’t been very good. As a result, there’s a very real possibility that The Gates TV show will be cancelled and won’t be back for season two.

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. 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 Gates 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. Paul Lee, President, ABC, 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521, RE: The Gates
  1. Take note of the products that are advertised 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, Fox Television Studios, and Little Engine Entertainment:

We, the undersigned, enjoy watching The Gates on the ABC network. The series has just the right mixture of drama and supernatural suspense.

Please find a way to keep The Gates 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 Disney-owned channel.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Please bring back The Gates. Too much reality shows & not enough suspense shows. I faithfully watched this show & loved it. I don't know how the ratings work but nobody asked me. Thanks for listening, Debby

    I just watched the first season on Netflix, when I started watching it I just couldn't stop, until I watched the entire season. I didn't know until I couldn't find season 2 that it was cancelled. I know if you bring it back it will do better now, it's a really good show and the actors are very good! I loved it!

    My family & I just watched this show and LOVED it! So sad to see it got cancelled because we would definitely have watched it! We got so invested with the characters. So sad to see a great idea and show die so young. If they renewed it, it would make a lot of people happy!

    Please bring this show back! There are so many unanswered questions! Y'all should hook up with Netflix, and do the second season with them. That would just be amazing for those of us who just loved the show!
  • Wendy fornesCountry: Usa2014-06-20 18:20:05
    Please bring The Gates back on with at least with proper endings. We have been left with so many questions left unanswered.
  • Care riosCountry: United States2014-06-19 21:42:56
    Please bring the show back, and with as many of the original cast as possible. It was such a great show. It's unfortunate that only Nielsen households are considered for shows moving forward.
