Jane By Design being canceled means that yet another hour of my schedule has opened up. Its funny ABC Family was on such a roll with great shows. Greek, Secret Life, 9 Lives, Switched at Birth, Lying Game, Jane By Design, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, Oh and Make It Or Break It. For some reason one by one they are getting rid of the best shows they had to make room for shows like extra helpings of Pretty Little Liars, a show I will never waste my time on, and their attempts at reality shows like Beverly Hills Nanny. Well with each good show that they take off the air their audience shrinks. WTG execs, you know exactly how to drive us to other networks in a hurry. I don’t know if I want to bother watching the new seasons of the shows I actually do like that they amazingly kept on the air as they will probably go away as fast as they came.

I really like Jane by design it was a good show and pretty little liars is the best it’s the #1 show on that channel and I also like the lying game it also had me coming back the shows I really hate are make it or break it,Beverly hill nannies,nine lives of Chloe king and secret life of an american teenager > the ony reason I hate that show is the actors and cause they carried the show and the plot to long!! But I’m glad to hear that there will be a second season for bunheads!!

Once people just start to get into a show it gets canceled. How are people supposed to keep the shows on that the like if you don’t give it a chance for a sex season? I really like Jane by design and I would have hoped that it would come back in especially how it was left off. You give it a suspenseful ending and I’m so anxious to see what happens and now it wont be back on. I’m really getting sick of ABC.

I liked Make it or Break it! I want to see it come back.. Bunheads is just starting to get good. It’s sad to see all these good shows get cancelled for crappy reality tv or trashy shows! Keep the good shows on for the viewers who do watch, just change the time slot and maybe these shows wouldn’t get cancelled..

I think Bunheads should definitely be renewed. I love the show. I almost stopped watching ABC Family after the cancellation on Make It or Break It. Now Bunheads is the only show I make sure I catch every week. If it can maintain its current ratings I don’t see it not being picked up for a second half at least. It’s ratings are 4th highest on the network beating Secret Life and Jane by Design.

[Hint: we’re about to start the 2012/13 season!]
