A Crisis Community
NBC (ended 2014)


Is Crisis in crisis?

NBC has pulled the hostage drama starring Gillian Anderson and Dermot Mulroney from its schedule for May 18, the last Sunday of May sweeps. Believe has also been removed from that Sunday's lineup. Instead, NBC will air a two-hour "Women of Saturday Night Live" special starting at 9pm.

Crisis and Believe, both freshman dramas in the middle of 13-episode runs, have been struggling in the ratings since their premieres earlier this season. There's no word on when or if they will return to the schedule.

I love this show!!! Why on earth are you canceling it????? One of my favorites along with Revolution! NBC you are idiots! I will stop watching shows on your channel, it's too hard to start watching shows that just get canceled after one or two seasons! Please rethink your decision!

Please don't cancel Believe and Crisis. They are 2 of the best shows on television. I don't watch much tv because I don't like reality shows or shows full of half naked people and foul language. It is getting very hard to find anything to watch anymore and then when I do it gets canceled and replaced with filth or crap. I am about ready to cancel my satellite and go back to renting or buying movies.

Please renew Believe! That is one of the best shows out there. It's new and innovative and like nothing already playing. You have The Voice and Americas Got Talent that run on and on and I don't even know anyone who likes those shows! Those shows are old and done over and over. Believe is such a better (although a different genre) show, please bring it back!

Why does it always seem that a smart, intriguing series comes on and its pulled and replaced by a mind numbing show for idiots? Please don't let Believe become a casualty of poor programming.

I was sooooo angry to discover that Crisis and Believe were cancelled! The lead cast for both of the shows are amazing, especially little Johnny. Move the shows from Sunday, they deserve a better time slot!

What is the definition of failure "NBC executives" failure to commit to their writers and their fan base on several canceled series over the years! It's time to get a clue.

Believe was the best show ever... just like NBC to cancel; it's no wonder NBC is losing viewership... they don't know a good thing when they see it!

PLEASE PLEASE..
All I looked forward too is believe and crisis every weekend. And to see it replaced by some..
Two hour pointless thing angers me. Then to have to look up that my two favorite shows right no were canceled.. Makes me really upset. NBC you didn't give them the CHANCE! Please give them a chance to give the story!! Or sell it to another channel JUST PLEASE!
I am considering not watching any of NBC's things ever again.

NBC, for what is right, please do something..
Thanks.
Fan of Believe and Crisis, and most importantly
Bo.

It is not official, but AICN is reporting NBC has also decided to announce cancellation for Believe on Monday when they release the Fall schedule.

Unfortunately every source i check has it cancelled, along with Revolution & Crisis. But at least Hannibal was renewed. So i lost 4 drama series this year. This kind of heartbreak, is why i cut my schedule to a handful a year, back in 2010.

Yeah - it will be official on MOnday. At that point the news had not leaked out about the cancellation. That changed Thursday.

From NBC's official site, Crisis will be back on May 18, and Believe will be back on May 25.

It may still be useful to sign petitions, but at least it looks like they're planning to finish airing the episodes.

Nothing of note has yet happened in Believe, I can't see them starting now. What is the plan? Yes it's just another 'Touch'.
Crisis has a pretty good plot other than the rich kids have too much freedom.
I'd imagine that NBC will finish the runs of both series and then cancel them.

I have no idea what people are talking about here when they say "nothing happened" on Believe. There's been a major revelation in every episode. If anything, I thought they were beginning to cram too MUCH in.

I'd much rather watch this and get all my answers right away, then watch Resurrection and wait years for answers that may never come and will probably disappoint when they do.

What major revelation ?

Not sure miasma is watching the same show. It's nothing like Touch and the one thing we can say about it is there have been a lot of revelations.

But if you don't like it, fair enough.

You needn't worry anyway as I've just read that it is cancelled and pulled from the schedule.

In episode one they revealed Tate was Bo's father (I know people guessed this one, but I didn't). In episode three they revealed exactly who Bo's mother was; in episode four they explained exactly what Winter's connection with Bo was. They didn't pull some BS like "we're going to reveal the identity of her mother really really slowly over five seasons," or for that matter, with anything else. They respected my intelligence and kept the story going. No pointless secrets.

Sounds extremely trivial who her mum and dad are, the kid has super-powers that she barely uses !

Jamie Chung (Channing from Believe) said on her twitter that they'd be back in two weeks. I certainly hope that's still the case - I need to know what happens!

Was that before or after this announcement? Because two weeks from now is May 18.

If I don't find out whether or not Channing lived, I'm going to be sore.

The NBC Believe site says it will be back on the 25th of May. So a little longer, but at least we get to find out! I would've hated for it to end on that cliffhanger as well - I really hope Channing's okay!

I think they will air the rest. They are made and paid for and the schedule is dead during the summer. We will see the end. I think they shaped the plot to bring us a conclusion

They are about to announce cancellation on MOnday. You all know I write for the show here, so I am really devistated. But we all did see it coming.

Do you think they'll actually air the other episodes, if they're announcing it so soon? :-/ I knew it was going to be cancelled, but I'm still really going to miss it.

Believe was actually growing on me after it got bogged down in formula (run, fight with each other, run some more, bo use power to save day, everyone makes nice, run some more), but given a change of writers the story itself could go somewhere. People always compaired it to Touch, when I have always envisioned it as a potential 'Firestarter' (you know, the Stephen King book). They should air the rest of the season, overhaul the creative staff during the break and come back and be more Stephen King and less Touched By An Angel/Prison Break hybrid.

Like I said in another thread, broadcast TV should stop trying to compete with cable with these serial TV shows and only pick up the ones that are really worth showing until they build up a good reputation for carrying such programming (see Hannibal), then more producers might look their way. If a network does not have faith in a show, why do they show it at all? Stuff like this doesn't last more than two seasons at most because the networks simply just don't care about the stuff THEY purchase.

I hope they al least finish the story. Because I have no idea what the end game is for Believe

I actually liked Crisis. They have to burn the rest of the episodes! I'm invested and I just need to see how it ends! i need closure dammit!!

Believe is a decent show and can be worth watching, just not live. Airing at 9pm on Sunday goes up against too many, more established, shows.

I liked the idea of Believe (from the previews) more than the actual product. I mean, the whole "universe is getting Bo to right wrongs" thing is way too similar to Touch, which I stopped watching halfway through the first season.
