    The previews for the show made me want to add it to my list of shows I record. I watched 3 episodes before I was like WOW I love this show. It definitely brings me back to my high school days of watching ER. I am very happy to see it’s been renewed. I think the show has a bright future.

    NBC amazes me. They have a show like Nightshift and consider canceling it. The only shows I watch on NBC are The Blacklist and Nightshift. Thank you for not dropping this show.

    I cannot believe the word cancel was even considered. The cast is great and there is never a dull moment. This show was one of the highlights of the year . For me following the voice was a wise move.

    I love Night Shift!!! I never miss an episode. I can’t believe they would even think about cancelling it. Definitely would be a terrible mistake.

    I will say to those who love this show, get ready. There is a good chance this show will not make it through this season. I can name five shows that had really good ratings, way better by the millions then this show and they yanked it off the air. And more bad news is, NBC is notorious for taking shows off the air like TNT cable station, and many others. Benjamen Pratt for those who like him had a great series and it was based on a true story. The management thought after 2.5 years of being on, and everyone and their mother loved this show but management felt even with “excellent numbers, and climbing” that they were giving off the wrong idea because it was “BASED” on a real story. It was called the Cleaner. Now this was on TNT not NBC, but then another example with an ALL STAR CAST was called Monday Mornings. You can look this up. It did not make it past 10 episodes, which means they never gave it a chance. The show was unique and was gaining steam. I think it would have been the one medical show after ER that would have made it. The ratings were decent, not great but decent. It was gaining more and more. They yanked it off the air. I could list a ton of shows. My point is, I see the writing on the wall for this show. If you love this show, place it on your facebook or any social media you use, and ask everyone to send a message/email to management stating you love the show and plan to boycott the station if they don’t give it a chance. This has worked in a few cases, and sometimes if they still don’t want it, another station might purchase it. But start fighting for your show now. It only takes an email or a phone call to the station. For me, I don’t watch the show. But I certainly know what it is like to have the rug pulled out from under you. Ten minutes of your time with a call or a email or both, could save your show. Enjoy and I hope it all works out for all of you. :)
