I'm not going to lie to you.
Despite the fact that "A Gifted Man" has won its time slot the last two weeks, it is in danger of cancellation.
In this day of cable and satellite and Netflix and Red Box giving viewers hundreds of channels and thousands of movies to choose from, it's hard for a series to pull in the huge numbers that networks look for. And it's become very common for a series to disappear after just a few weeks when it's drawing fewer than 10 million viewers.
But it's also common for some network shows to stick around with a regular viewership of 3-4 million. It really depends on a lot of things.
One of the things that matters to networks is feedback. They want to hear from you. They want to know what you like and what you don't. What's working and what isn't. The powers that be really do listen.
You have more power than you might think.
And so I'd really like to encourage you all to click on this link right here and tell CBS how you feel about "A Gifted Man."
A series like this needs room to grow and time to build an audience. If they hear from enough of us, they will give it the time it needs. But it requires us to take just a little bit of effort to tell them what we think. So do it. And then share the link and tell your friends to support "A Gifted Man" too.
The show is in danger, but still in production. It's not going anywhere. Yet.
