    I thought last nights episode of Bad Teacher was great. It beat out Grays Anatomy in the ratings, now has an average of 2.1, which is more than other shows that were renewed for the following season. The characters are funny, likeable, and you can identify with the kids and the main characters….why won’t cbs give this show a chance before they blanketly cancel it. If you like Bad Teacher, send in a lot of your supporting comments, maybe network will change their mind or another network will pick them up…speak up folks if you want to try to keep the show on.

      I agree with you, i think that the shows has not yet shown it’s full potential therefore i think it should be given another chance so that each character could develop.

    OUTSTANDING. You can see the show starts out with a high contrast between where Ari Graynor’s character starts out, and where she seems destined to grow. Another interesting aspect is how she affects those around her and vice versa during the journey.

    This show is definitely not what I expected to be I hope this is cancelled it does not deserve another season. Cameron Diaz knows how to play the part of Meredith not Ari Graynor. Also this show is very predictable the bad teacher is trying to get a rich husband again and ends up being offensive in some way and ends up discovering she cares about her coworkers and the students. I will definitely not watch this again, the movie was better.

    Liked the show and would watch again. David A Grier character hit the mark and could only get better with each episode. Love Kirsten Davis, but her character needs to go there and, I mean go there. The Bad Teacher character is priceless. She does the stuff we think about doing, but don’t. Nice escape from reality. Sara Gilbert, just missed the mark. She is just too smart for this role, and it should be recast. With all that said, I will watch again.
