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 the show back. I did not hear of thhis show as I'm not an ABC viewer. Well not too frequently, but I watched The Gates in one sitting on Netflix. Maybe youguys can come to a deal with Netflix to air new episodes? I believe you gave up too fast.

    I love this show it was amazing. Please bring it back. I didn't know about it when it aired on abc. I saw it on Netflix. I watched all episodes in 3 days while juggling two three year olds. The only thing I didn't like about it was how it ended then was canceled. Please bring the gates back.

    It's early March, 2014, as I write this. I only just discovered The Gates a week ago and just finished what was the final episode. Self contained, it was an amazing story with an overly bittersweet ending. Being able to accept it as the ending has been a hard thing to do, but at almost five years later any hope for a continuation of the story is long since abandoned. So I sign this petition, not in earnest to have The Gates renewed, but as a fan who loved the brief glimpse of it they had.

    There is so little to watch with a great story, well acted and characters that blend seamlessly to the story. I miss intelligent TV please reconsider producing "the Gates". Thank you Linda Harrison

    I can't believe THE GATES got canceled. It was a great show. I can't understand WHY "ABC" keep dropping shows! The shows now are really tiresome, lame, boring, etc. THAT'S WHY PEOPLE ARE TURNING TO CABLE. RAUNCHY, TWISTED AND GORY. THANKS FOR NOTHING ABC!

    Please bring back The Gates, even if it's only on Netflix. It is a great show. The writer is awesome and I can't wait to see what is going to happen next with the characters. My co-workers started watching it as well because I told them about it. Pleaseeee bring it back with more seasons so we can continue to see how life goes on in The Gates.

    I've only just seen this show & was disappointed to read that it cancelled after the first season. It's a shame we here in Australia don't see it for sometime or hear about it soon enough, as it was a great show!
