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.

    This show must go on ! My whole family follow the series and we love it. And yes, it deserves a much higher rating!

    Touch has action and enlightenment. Something for almost everyone. Faith and a sense of wonderment at the interconnectedness of all things. Science, technology and the global village that that has created. While still including enough murder and general mayhem! to satisfy the most lurid among us.
    A Touch of this and that….
    Please Fox don’t touch Touch! it is perfect where it is… renew it for a third season.
    Shows that open up dialogue between parents and kids on faith science and how we all fit into this world are needed.

    Please don’t cancel it! It’s the best tv show in years. We need to know the ending! Please don’t cancel it!!!

    The ratings say all you need to know. Some of us talked about it previously – they’ve ruined the show with this new direction they’ve taken. The show is no longer what made it special to begin with and people are quickly jumping ship week after week.
