I hope to God that Big Time Rush doesn’t end their show. It’s what makes me feel alive for once in my life. The life they portray, and the experiences between friendship, brotherhood, and family is a once in a lifetime thing not experienced before. Big Time Rush not only inspires children, teens, and tweens, but they inspire those interested living in the Big Life to take risks, even if those risks mean giving something up.

For one thing I am a huge fan of Big Time Rush I’m thirteen and I love watching the show, and I am definitely sure that girls my age and older would not like you canceling the show. They are a teen heart throb and us fans love their music, but we aren’t just fans we are called Rushers and we are family

I know it’s for kids, but this show gives me a Big Time Headache.


Pikachu August 7, 2012 at 8:49 am

Really need to get interested in Big Time Rush. Right now, I only watched YouTube videos and listened to a few of their songs. I even have magazines that have them on the pages. Nevertheless, I’m very happy about the renewal.
