    Nashville is one of the best shows on TV. The music and the stories are always fun. I live in Nashville and this is very close to how the industry actually operates here. I love it.

      I agree – reality shows are exactly that – no acting experience needed and it shows! PLEASE KEEEP THE COMEDIES! NOT ENOUGH FUNNY IN THE WORLD!!!

    Wow how ridiculous is ABC getting? it makes me not even want to try and watch any shows that they have to offer anyone! ABC u SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!

    ABC, shame on you for cancelling a fantastic show like ‘Last Resort’! I have watched every episode and like someone mentioned previously, I know several people who watch the show, so were are you getting your information to make a decision to cancel?! You will keep shows like ‘The Bachelor’, ‘The Bachelor Pad’ (watch a joke of a show!), ‘The Bachelorette’ and many other reality type shows that I won’t even let my dog watch because they are sooooo ridiculous. It is hard for me to believe that enough people watch those crappy shows to warrant keeping them around over ‘Last Resort’ ~ Again, SHAME ON YOU ABC!!!

    I can’t believe all these lame reality shows get spots but an awesome show like last resort gets cancelled!! That’s why I hate starting a show it always gets cut!! Make reality a time of the past

    Are you kidding me? If you are going to cancel anything it should be Nashville. The accent of that Australian actress is so fake and over the top. In fact I stopped watching it for that exact reason. How come no one else in town has such a ridiculous exaggerated accent? I also also agree that there are too many reality shows. Cancel them! And what happened to GCB? It was a cute tongue in cheek show.

    • Southerner says

      You clearly have no accent recognition, since she is English, not Australian. I know plenty of people who speak that way – Southern accents still have regional variations. I love Nashville, but I find it extremely irritating that it airs so sporadically.

    I can’t believe you are cancelling Last Resort! One of the best series ever! Everyone I know watched it and it kept them spell bound! Big Mistake! I am very upset with you for doing this! I don’t know who you pull but you left a whole lot of people out! Please re think this!

    Please don’t cancel Castle. So few good adult shows on,(hate “reality”, vampire, and non-funny comedies that promote sarcascm, nasty comments about adults,etc). Castle, NCIS, Leverage, Person of Interest, The Mentalist, CSI, CSI-NY, Criminal Minds, Bones, Hawaii 5-0, Covert Affairs,NCIS-LA & Burn Notice are the only really good adult shows on. Some idiots at TNT have dropped Leverage (hopefully another newwork with some brains will pick it up), so to lose Castle would be a disaster. Castle is the ONLY show on ABC that we watch. Please give us the one reason to watch ABC. If you are really smart you will pick up Leverage because your programming basically stinks.
