W A T C H #HANNIBAL:
As of now, NBC is holding off on their decision whether or not to renew Hannibal. Which is good news, because I’m hoping this means they’re waiting to see what more of the DVR/On Demand/Streaming figures look like since their airtime ratings have been low.
When will networks learn the formula of watching shows live, particularly one late on a Thursday night, just isn’t how people consume television anymore?
Anyway, I want to STRESS how IMPORTANT it is for everyone to watch the show on one of its LEGAL streaming/download options, of which there are many as you can see above. I know, it airs one night earlier in Canada and therefor is available on the internet’s black market before it airs in the U.S. But if we want a second season we need to prove to NBC there’s a demand. They’re not tracking piracy and thinking, oh look at how many people are downloading Hannibal, must be popular enough to renew.
And believe me, I’m no saint. I usually watch it early through some nefarious back alley stream because I’m obsessed. But then I’ll watch it again on Hulu or NBC, sometimes more than once, because yes, I’m that obsessed
So please, watch Hannibal, legally if you can, make your friends watch, talk about it - you’d be surprised how many haven’t heard of it!
