Reference point: The 2011-12 season of Touch averaged a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.2 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    My family loves shows that require using your brain. ABC cancelled Zero Hour, don’t cave in to the dumb reality shows. Keep Touch going, we love it!!

  4. Dave says

    Loved last season when you had several plotlines running concurrently then flowing together at the end. This year pretty much stinks. Someone really screwed the pooch on this one and my family and I have all given up watching this show.

    i am really into this series…i have been obsessed with it since the first episode…maybe a part of it is that i have an autistuc son who doesnt talk..he is three and just started theropy but thats besides the point…i just love the storyline and all the connections and if the show was ever cancelled i would have to hunt down tim kring to find out how the story plays out…i find it strange that kidnapping amelia was necesary when if they told the parents about there research and how it would be helpful and could change the world…they could be involved but instead they choose to run and hide…there is alot more going on here and i cant wait until each new episode…please do not cancel touch

  7. TeiaR says

    Please RENEW!! I have not missed an episode. I will be heartbroken yet again if another show gets cancelled before I find out what happens. The way the other stories unfold while Jake takes you through his eventful day amazes me how they all are connected. I like trying to figure things out while watching and left hanging at the end of each episode. I can’t wait to find out more of the story. Please renew for a 3rd season.
