    stupid abc family secret life and make it or break it are some of my favorite shows!!!!!! Grrr how can you cancel them and bring back melissa and joey give me back my shows !!!!!!!!!!!

  2. CaitlinJane says

    I’m so upset that The Lying game got renewed but Jane by Design didn’t! I love that show and have been anticipating its comeback, then I find this site and see that it’s not. I don’t think that’s fair. I think you should just put it in am earlier time slot and it would have much more viewers. Please bring it back! I also think “Secret Life” should get finished too. I am so mad when I saw Beverly Hills Nannies got cancelled too! Please bring all them back!

  3. Taylor says

    How could Make it or Break it be over? It could have at least been finished. I’m so upset over this. It had over 1 million watchers. That’s a lot, but it’s not enough? Ookkaaaayyy. Make the next season. The watchers deserve it.

  4. M says

    Please bring Jane by Design back. Great show. You can’t leave us hanging. Give us closure. Finish “Secret life”. You built up planning a wedding, went off the air for months then back with some silly toy building episode and it appears that Amy and Ricky are married for real, but no mention of it. I agree, who cares about the Dylan character, finish up with the main characters of the show, graduate them, send them to college with closure.

    Also, finish Beverly Hills Nannies. You guys CAN’T have a partial season of any show and then up and stop. Let us know you are canceling, but finish a show, with endings and closure. It takes people a little while to find shows and like characters, give us all a chance to like shows and then if you cancel shows, at least give us heads up and an ending. That is just courtesy. Thank you.

    Get Jane by design back. You cant just leave it like that. At least make a quick ending or something and not just leave it like that!!!

    • Eimly says

      I totally agree with you.I need to know what happened with Billy and Jane. they have to get back together. Stupid ab family has canceled my favorite show grrrr. ABC Family wants to make my life miserable

  6. Dannielle says

    My daughter is a gymnast and furious over Make It Or Break It being cancelled. I really enjoyed the show too. They should definitely bring this show back and cancel one of the others that’s not really watched or less family oriented.

  7. KC says

    The Lying Game and Pretty Little Liars are just AWFUL, but they keep getting renewed?! Crazy!

    Secret Life has gone WAAAY downhill, too many boring new characters. But I think they can fix it and make it almost as good as it used to be. There’s just too many dumb subplots like the Dylan thing. Ugh. It became “The Dylan Show” all of last season! Hate it! This show used to be so awesome and now it’s just frustrating.

    • KC says

      Just actually READ that they canceled Secret Life. OMG! That show had SO much potential if they hadn’t brought in “leftover” characters from another failed TV show. X_X Brenda Hampton’s lost her mind.

      I’ll miss the show, but maybe it never would have gotten better. That’d be sadder than it getting canceled.

  8. Kristin says

    I am still very upset over loosing Jane By Design!!!!! The ONE show keeping me coming back and not totally writting off ABC Family is The Lying Game. I really enjoyed the first season and am very excited to see season 2 come January! I tried to watch Bunheads and hated it. I watched Baby Daddy until I heard about JBD. Out of spite I quit watching haha. I enjoy Switched at Birth but I don’t make sure to be home to watch or anything. I did like Chole King but you know…..

    It’s about time Secret Life got canned. From the get-go that show had the worse scripts and acting. I would rather sit naked in my cat’s litter box than be forced to watch that show ever again.

  9. Jeremy Rynek says

    Why is the only non major network this website lays it all out for like this? Why not like FX, TNT and a million others?

  10. Alice Fragoza says

    Yeah!! Our family is so happy to see that Bunheads will be continued for another season…….we really enjoy watching TV that is good for the whole family, features strong women and talented girls who can dance……………..
