    PLEASE bring back NY Med next season. This show was edited and narrated with class which is something that isin’t seen much anymore on television. I have also learned a lot which will help my own families care in the future. This is certainly one show that deserves a comeback!

    I to am very disappointed Pan Am was not picked up for another season. I do wish ABC would get rid of the reality showes they are the worst, just a waist of TV time.

  3. Lynne says

    DEFINITELY KEEP NY MED… And I thought Missing had a lot of potential…wish you’d bring it back and flesh it out a little. I think it would be a big draw because it was so different from the other action shows.

    Has Pretty Little Liars been renwed? I hope so. I love the show. Im disappointed Jane by Design was canceled. I enjoyed that show too.

    TheY canceled awake terra nova. alcatraz The firm I watch I wide variety of tv and the only thing that made it I watch is touch and supernatural
    Need to get some better network directors Rob was cancelled with eleven million viewers so tell me who makes these dumb choices

  6. Diana says

    Soooo upset that “The River” was cancelled!!! Can’t believe we have to be tortured through all these stupid reality shows, yet something interesting like “The River” doesn’t make it. BAD decision!!!

  7. kim says

    HOORAY for The Middle! It speaks to a lotta peeps right now. Gives me something to laugh at OTHER than my sad paycheck. I completely identifie with the Hecks!

  8. Louise Dagenais says

    Pan Am should not have been cancelled. It is a great show with great actors. If I had my choice Castle would be the show being cancelled… anytime over Pan Am.

    I think all the shows that I enjoyed watching were cancelled, I really enjoyed watching Missing, I though it was great. Also cancelled was Unforgetable on CBS, and was really surprised that CSI Miami was also among the casualties, I realized that it had been on a long time, however there are other shows out there that their time to go is now also. I don’t think the networks gave the other 2 shows in their freshman season enough time.

    Expedition Impossible was a great show. The team called “No Limits” were the best. I thought that the blind guy(Eric) was gonna be the one that inspired everyone watching to do things, but it was (in my opinion) Jeff and Ike. It was amazing to see Jeff do the things he did for Erik, and it was really awesome to Ike get hurt like he did and continue the rest of the race hurt. Taking nothing away from Erik, but the I was more inspired by the was that even though he was hurt, Ike continued the pryone should email ABC and make them put it back one air. ush forward. I’ve started to run again and my children have been doing charity races to help the less fortunate across our state.

      I absolutely loved missing. Makes me mad it was cancelled!!!!! They are a butt load of shows that should be cancelled however, Missing was not one of them. Unforgettable was also cancelled. And Omg CSI Miami was cancelled. What are these decision makers thinking

  11. Melissa says

    I have to say that I am SOOOO disappointed that ABC cancelled Pan Am and GCB. I LOVED both of those shows and will miss them this fall. Why does ABC keep such crap on TV like the Bachelor and the Bachelorette and cancels original shows…Get it together ABC, not everything needs to be “reality tv”.
