Season End Status: This show started with decent numbers in July, but those dropped off after several weeks and it regularly lost a fair amount of its lead-in from Big Brother. It appeared to be headed to cancellation, but CBS decided to bring it back for a second season. The network does have Amazon onboard as a streaming partner, so perhaps that was enough to keep Salvation going in order to allow some scripted programming to be included on its schedule during the Summer months amidst the repeats and reality shows.
