USA Network: Pick up cancelled ABC series "Designated Survivor" for a Season 3

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

This afternoon on May 11, 2018, ABC announced the cancellation of freshman procedural drama "Designated Survivor", a brilliant political series with an average of 3.95 million viewers per episode.

I believe that USA Network would be a perfect fit for this series. Not only is it mature, thoughtful, and critically acclaimed, but it perfectly represents the best type of programming that has been seen time and time again on USA Network. Furthermore, picking up a series like this would, in effect, move all of the viewers ABC already built up with the first two seasons to the USA Network. These viewers keep coming back every week. They're dedicated. If you move the show, the viewers will follow. 

The series follows Tom Kirkman, a lower-level cabinet member who never imagined something would happen that would catapult him to the oval office. When a devastating attack on the night of the State of the Union address claims the lives of the president and most of the Cabinet, the Housing and Urban Development secretary -- who was named the designated survivor in case of such an event -- finds himself promoted to leader of the free world. Suddenly thrust into his new position of power, Kirkman struggles to keep the country from dissolving into chaos and must adjust to his new normal, unaware of what fresh horrors may await the United States.

It has a 82% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has a large fanbase, with 97,000 Twitter follows as of 05/11/2018 via @ABCDesignated.

The series ended too quickly. How could a show with such a large live viewership and such great potential get shut down so quickly? 

I implore you to consider this series as a new addition to your lineup of originals. This is a great, rare-come-by opportunity that can't be missed.
