Love The Rookie! Great Show. Hoping it goes a 3rd season.
Yes on season three!! There is so much more storyline!
I hope it’s renewed! So tired of the networks cancelling the good shows and keeping the garbage!
Love this show…… and hope it gets renewed.
The Rookie is one show that my husband and I like watching together. There is always a lot of action and good story lines. Please do not cancel. We had watched Castle faithfully as well .
We really enjoy watching Nathan Fillion. We liked him in Castle, but I think his character in The Rookie is better, not so silly. Please don’t cancel it! The Rookie is great! It is so hard to find good clean shows with out too much violence nowadays. Ratings people should check out how many people watch on Hulu because we can’t stand commercials miss watching things on regular TV, we watch a lot of the new shows on Hulu. Betcha most people are watching it there.
Moving to Sunday was a mistake, it’s up against football. Move it back to a week night like it was.
I agree 100%!!!
Keep it on!
Please please please I hope it’s renewed!!
I speak for my friend and I who look forward to watching every Sunday night!!!!!
My husband and I love The Rookie and look forward to watching it every week. We are hoping it will be renewed for Season 3 soon.
The Rookie is a great show!! The problem is that you can’t keep it on a Sunday night because people watch FOOTBALL and whatever PBS is offering or HBO or Starz.. Wednesday night would be a good night. Thanks…You have to watch what I is going up against on any station. Friday night at 8pm NBC has the Blacklist…that is also an opening for 9pm or 10pm. Thursday night at 10 pm would be great as How to GET away with Murder is ending its final show forever. So thanks
One of my favorites. Please Don’t cancel it.
ABC would be crazy not to renew the rookie great show one of the best on abc right now so ABC if you listen to your consumers renew The Rookie show for 2 more seasons at least there is still a lot more story to the show that can be done. Sincerely fans of The Rookie
ABC would be absolutely INSANE not to renew “The Rookie”! This show is some of the best written and acted television that I’ve seen since “Designated Survivor” and “24”! And if I hear even a whiff that they are considering canceling or not renewing it, I am seriously considering petitioning ABC to keep it going! Anyone else with me?
The Rookie is a very Good show and very interesting and Fillion is Excellent. I wish it didn’t have to compete with SundayNight Football
I love this show I watch with my wife we keep up with all the episodes
Another Really Good Nathan Fillion TV Show ABC Needs To KEEP It On As Long As They Can!! Nathan Has Been One Of The All Around Actors On All Of TV For A Very Long Time!!
