'Alcatraz' Star

DON'T CANCEL OUR SHOW

(We're Huge on DVR!)

It seems the show "Alcatraz" is destined for that long, inevitable walk to the execution chamber ... but one of the main stars tells TMZ ... the series is just too young to die!

Jonny Coyne -- the guy who plays Warden James on the show -- was grubbin' at the delicious Wood Ranch Grill in LA today -- when we informed him about the less-than-stellar ratings for last night's season finale.

Coyne tells us ... despite the numbers, the show is great ... and it would be "a shame" if it went to the chopping block ... especially because it allegedly does GREAT with people who own DVRs. 

But the most shocking part ... dude has a serious accent -- who knew?

Watched the first show...couldn't get into it. Watched the season finale last night until 9 PM...then switched to Being Human. The show just doesn't interest me...and I was born and raised in San Francisco.

Too many dumb ass idiots watching stupid reality on a regular basis. No good TV programming for the smart people in the world.

I tried to see if you can contact FOX by email but you can't do that.

I hope they don't cancel. It's a good show.

This is the best show on TV. It's like the new X-Files kinda. If they take it off I'm gonna be pissed

We DVR it but not by choice. We DVR House, and it automatically records Alcatraz too.

Hint: Nielsen Ratings are as antiquated as the cotton gin and slavery. Let it go. Stop canceling good shows to make room for more reality stupidity. I've already had to endure many shows being axed to make room for the American Idol debacle that still exists and that no one really cares about anymore. Let it go. This show is awesome.

I haven't watched the show, but I love Sam Neill. I'd start watching just for him. I agree with the others, it's way too soon to pull a show off the air. Change the rating system.
