The Player, a freshman series for NBC which debuted on September 24, 2015 features a mega star/ensemble cast with Wesley Snipes (Blade 1, 2 & 3, Expendables 3, New Jack City, White Men Can't Jump, Passenger 57) Phillip Winchester (Strike Back, Flyboys) and Charity Wakefield (Wolf Hall) as the leads. The premise, the rich and powerful gamble on crime with a "player" from The House (a team of 3 individuals, The Pit Boss, The Dealer and The Player) being inserted to change the outcome. While only with a handful of episodes, The Player has captivated audiences with it's high octane escapist action, suspense, intriguing premise and evolving plot. While on a Thursday night schedule competing with NFL Thursday Night football and the MLB Baseball playoffs as well as shows like "How To Get Away With Murder, it continues to maintain a consistent and loyal fanbase on a tricky and not always favorable time slot.

It is now heavily "rumored" to be on the verge of cancellation after NBC has reduced it's episode order from 13 to 9. It is not being given the proper chance to truly establish itself and at least finish it's 13 episode run for the first season with a chance at a second or being moved to be part of the summer tv schedule, despite it's progress and consistent numbers against it's competition while being a brand new series. I'm asking for all the fans support and for people who haven't seen it to tune in after seeing this petition and support this show and voice their concern if they see to it as well. If it cannot survive on NBC, I am genuinely asking on behalf of myself and the rest of us loyal fans that this show move to another network where it can truly flourish and be given the chance it properly deserves. Any network executive currently reading this, I am humbly asking to give this a chance as there is a big market/interest for shows like this as shown by USA network's Burn Notice (2007), 24 (2001), Alias (2001), Human Target (2010), Person of Interest (2011) etc.

I sincerely thank everyone who took the time to read and support this petition as well as the executives who can act and change this decision, Have a good day.
