    The series Touch need to be canceled. It is the same old thing over and over again
    But with different people.

  3. NYMedFan says

    ABC should renew NY Med for another season! That show is one of my favorites. I want to be a doctor when I grow up and being able to see what its actually like on a typical day in a hospital is very exciting. Although I am also a huge fan of Grey’s Anatomy, I found it refreshing to see what life as a doctor is truly like without drenching it in drama. If I were a critic I would give this show a 5/5 and would strongly urge ABC to continue its very inspirational series. I don’t know why anyone would ever want to condense such amazing stories into solely one season!

    Hello! Please renew Dr. Oz and NY Med! My daughter is a 4th year surgery resident and even though, she shares some of her stories from hospital/work, viewing it myself really brings the stories to life. I am in awe at how they save people’s lives and how hard they work without complaining (at least to us). Now THIS is a reality show worth watching! Thank you, Nancy L.

    Why was The Finder canceled. A very up-beat, with the cast of charactors that worked well together. Being a baby from the Bones show I would think it would have more followers, an more of a chance to stay longer than a wimpy 1 season. Now that the show was finally getting to the truth’s of why the charactors were brought together, the show gets sandblasted.
    When are the newworks going to realize the idiodic troan of shows that are “real people” showing off the ability to be as stupid as one can get to even show everyone else how stupid they really are.
    I thought the ideal of television was to entertain and allow people to be able to escape from their never ending gossipping, cheating, power plays of everyday work so the average worker could escape from so they did not have to think about their constant stress of working/living in everyday life. Instead the bright idea that the neworks push more TV junk of stress producing TV shows that give them more idiodic ways of stabbing their co-workers in the back, gossipping to a new height and instead of sex in the closets the sex is never hidden never given the chance of imagination.
    My favorite shows that are down the toilet are:
    The Finder: A show that allows the viewer to see that some secrets we have are not as trerrible as we think.
    Sancuary: After they finally found a great place to live/work/or just be the time of creative story lines that would allow the sci-fi aspect truley be imaginative cancels before even a glimce of what imagaination could show us.

      You did hear Michael Clark Duncan passed away in Sept at age of 54, right? Don’t know if it was cancelled before his death, but he was perfect in the role so it would be hard to replace him. I liked the show & will miss it, too!

    Duets was cancelled. Bummed about that but sorta expected it. Sad about 101 Ways To Leave A Game Show and Pan Am and Expedition Impossible.
