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.

    I thought that the gates was a really good tv show, really enjoyed it, and watched it many times. I would hate for you not to make a season 2 because for us fan that enjoy the show we would really like to know what happens to the characters.

    I just caught this show on chiller. I never knew it about and I've found it very entertaining. I hate there isn't a second season! I think it really deserves a chance to gather a larger following.

    I would really love to see the show, The Gates, return for more episodes. This show is very well written and entertaining. Even with all the other paranormal shows out there, this one has kept my attention more so than most.

    A co worker of mine told me about The Gates and the first time i watched it was on Netflix. I absolutly love this show!.I watch ABC all the time and I'm surprised that I did not know about it in 2010! this Show kept you on your toes. I thing with the right promotion and time slot this show will take off! it had the smae time slot as True Blood and now that that is over I'm sure us supernatural fans need something to keep us enetertained!!! I hope Netflix or another network picks it up!
  • Mary ParkerCountry: United States2014-09-10 17:35:53
    I feel that you should really consider bringing the show back. It seems that the big problem was marketing. I had no idea that the show was on TV. I saw it on Netflix and got all my friends into the show to only learn that it was canceled. I don't have cable or satellite television, so I depend on regular tv. I didn't have the heat to tell my friends it won't be another season until they watch the complete season. Please bring it back or tell us weber top buy the next season. That's how bad my family and

    Just found out about this show on Netflix. Had I known about it when it was airing on TV, I definitely would have watched it then. Please bring back another season. Great show. I loved it
  • Sherri FerrisCountry: USA2014-09-05 12:18:33
    Renew/Revive this show!!!! Just because it was premiered at a bad time/day doesn't mean it's not cult follower worthy. It was never given a chance because of programming choices.
