    My family and I love this show. The reviews above say that its unoriginal but its a good family friendly show. I think its pretty original with it being hard to be original in Hollywood now a days. It’s a great show and I will definitely keep watching.

    It is funny and cute, I love it for summer! It is cute and not some trash that we are usually subject to! It should stay… It will stay in my line up – it is a keeper as far as I see it! Renew it!!!

    I think that this show should have a second season. It’s funny and there’s no other show like it.

  4. Tomoya says

    It should totally be renewed for a second season!! this show is amazing ratings looking pretty good!!

  5. Brandy says

    I am on the fence so far with this show. The ratings look good though, so it definitely justifies a second season.
