I am going to use this petition and the above blog posts to convince NBC to to put Allegiance back in the prime time line-up and possibly begin producing season 2.
As you know NBC has cancelled Allegiance after only 5 episodes. Why? Because it was placed in a bad time slot. It was slotted to rival Elementary (CBS) which already had a following of over 4 million viewers in the shows third year. If that wasn't enough NBC pit the show up against American Crime (ABC) which cast such veteran actors as Timothy Hutton and Felicity Huffman.Lets not mention the bang-up advertising job that ABC did. They advertised the pilot of American Crime so well that local news station around the United States were talking about the show on air.
Why is NBC going to penalize the viewers and fans for their mistake? According to several internet based, review websites, even with 8.37 million viewers, the average rating for American Crime was only 7.8 out of 10.The average rating for Elementary 8.1 and in last place was Allegiance with a 7.3.So now NBC cancels Allegiance because its 8 tenths of a point from being the top rated show on Thursday night at 10:00pm. You can see here that Allegiance did have a fan base. Yes it went up against some power house programming but it has potential to be a contender if put into a Sunday or Monday time slot.
NBC has already spent the money to produce 8 more episodes of the show. All we are asking is for them to air the remaining episodes of Allegiance during a more viable time slot, sell it to another network or internet media outlet so that we, the fans can have closure and you can recoup the money.
We, the undersigned, enjoy watching Allegiance on NBC.
Please keep Allegiance on the air. We are all devoted viewers who Pledge to continue watching the program, we will encourage others to watch as well, and will support the series’ advertisers as well. Please keep it going, either on NBC or, if necessary, on another network.
