  • The Hollywood Reporter has an interview with Angela Bromstad, President of primetime entertainment at NBC and Universal Media Studios where she discusses shows that are on the bubble and says this about Life:

    THR: And “Life”?

    Bromstad: “Life” is a show I developed when I was here before I left. Damian (Lewis) is a great star. We wish the ratings were better. That’s really all we can say.

    Okay that wasn’t too positive – but don’t give up people! Keep spreading the word about the show to friends, family members, etc. Show how devoted you are by sending cards, postcards, and emails saying NBC needs to renew this show and support it because it’s one of the best shows they have (and one of the best on TV!) . Visit the official site, rewatch the show at or, or purchase it off iTunes – show them numbers Nielsen isn’t providing them!

  • Variety reports that Life starring Damian Lewis is a huge hit in Spain: ➡

    “Life” has made the best bow in Spain of any Hollywood skein this season. Aired Monday primetime on broadcast network Telecinco from Feb. 16, “Life’s” first three segs won their timeslot, with 21.6% and 4.15 million viewers, 20.2% and 3.9 million, and 22.9% and 4.5 million. Telecinco’s February channel share was 14.9%. Only two veteran U.S. skeins beat “Life” — “CSI: New York” (20.7% to 24.5% over February) and “CSI Las Vegas,” (23.5% on Monday)…

    Thanks to “CSI,” Telecinco has established a lock on Spanish Monday primetime. “Life” is led in by “CSI New York” or “Las Vegas,” maintaining Telecinco’s Monday night as appointment TV for slick, self-contained procedurals. Telecinco took a chance on “Life,” which replaced season six of “CSI Miami.” “Because of the writers’ strike, we were delivered less ‘CSI’ episodes. So we substituted one of the seasons,” said Telecinco head of acquisitions, Ghislain Barrois…

    “Life” is superbly cost-effective. U.S. skeins sell to Spain for a tenth or less of the per-seg e300,000 to e700,000 ($380,000 to $900,000) production tab for domestic series.

  • This Hollywood Reporter article reveals that Life is among the top US shows to demonstrate significant gains in viewer ratings based on “Live+7 data” that includes DVR and online viewing statistics.

    An NBC press release had this to say about Life’s ratings:

    “… Wednesday from 9-10 p.m. ET, “Life” (1.6/4 in 18-49, 4.9 million viewers overall) was up 23 percent in 18-49 rating versus its last episode to air opposite a second hour of “American Idol,” as well as original episodes of “Criminal Minds” and “Lost” (a 1.6 this week vs. a 1.3 on February 11). And despite this competition, “Life” increased in 18-49 rating for the second straight week. …”

  • Show your support for Life starring Damian Lewis!

    Life has received great critical acclaim and it was honored by the American Film Institute as one of the “Top 10 Television Shows of 2008” but it has been given little or no promotion by NBC and it’s been moved all over the schedule this season. Now it is up against some of the most popular and heavily promoted shows on network television. The ratings are not great and NBC has not yet renewed the show for a third season. 🙁

    Life is in serious danger of cancellation! Send a letter to Angela Bromstad, NBC’s President of Primetime Entertainment, and tell her that NBC needs to renew this show and support it because it the best show they have (and the best show on TV!)
