    Not listening to your viewers to keep all the great shows will cause you to lose more and more viewers from around the world.

    ABC cancelled The Gates,Scoundrels,My Generation,The Whole Truth,Better With You,Mr. Sunshine,and my entire Tuesday night lineup with No Ordinary Family,V,and Detroit 1-8-7.At least I have The Middle,Modern Family,Cougar Town,Happy Endings,and Rookie Blue to watch.I was gonna watch Charlie’s Angels,but now I’m not even going to waste my time anymore with new shows,I’m just gonna watch my already established shows that are on ABC.

    Since ABC has CANCELLED many of my favorite shows in the last few years (LIFE ON MARS, V, DETROIT 187, FLASH FORWARD), just to name a few, I won’t be watching anything but Castle and Rookie Blue. Regards from somone over 49 to all the networks, you know what you can kiss.

    I miss V! Oh well, at least they’ve still got Castle. And I’ll be checking out Once Upon A Time and Pan Am (but not the awful Desperate Housewives that airs between them!), which keeps the number of shows I’ll watch on this network at three (the cancelled V and No Ordinary Family rounding out that number for last season).

  5. angela says

    I’ll only watch two of the shows in that whole lineup…Castle and Body of Proof, otherwise none of the other shows even catch my eye and a waste of my time to watch.

  6. The Blue Rose says

    Sorry ABC but you have lost not only my viewership but also that of a lot of others. I pledge not to watch anything on your network but my soaps. Your decision to cancel my soaps was a bad one and I do not support you!
