SyFy may reconsider canceling The Expanse after intense fan support – if we can boost ratings starting TONIGHT, we may have a chance! Here’s how to help.
Cas Anvar, who plays the show's pilot and has been active in communicating with fans, streamed a video discussing talks he had with SyFy yesterday.
According to SyFy and Cas, they are willing to "discuss" The Expanse again if our Nielsen ratings go up for the rest of this season. Most simply, this means more people watching live, DVR'ing, and watching within 3 days of the broadcast.
Here are the best ways to support the effort, in order of direct effectiveness. (I made a graphic for sharing here)
Watch live on cable, Sling, Hulu TV, YouTube TV, DirecTV Now, PS Vue, etc. Even if you’re not at home, leave your TV on SYFY!
DVR it Watch it in the first 3 days in order to have impact – don’t just save it for later! Even better, watch live and DVR it, this counts twice!
Watch the next day using paid services like Amazon Prime, iTunes, etc.
Keep your voice heard on social media! Even if you can’t watch The Expanse as it’s being aired, keep showing your enthusiasm and introducing your friends to the show.
SYFY works with the Nielsen Ratings System to determine the show’s impact. Live views count the most, followed by views within 3 days. If in doubt, research to see if your watch method is counted by Nielsen.
Remember to watch TONIGHT, with hashtags #WatchExpanseLive and #SaveTheExpanse! The show goes live at 21:00 Eastern Time / 01:00 UTC.
Thanks so much, everyone! We hope to see you around /r/TheExpanse sometime soon.
