    I hope the network will reconsider the decision to cancel Boss. I think it is one of the most interesting series airing. It is very well cast, the story line is fascinating. I agree with other commenters…I don’t think it has been marketed properly. I have told several friends and family about it and they all watch.

    I’m hooked on BOSS. Don’t cancel it…….just market it! I found it by accident and have told people about it, but no one sees any ads to promote it. It’s a very well written program. It showcases the great acting talent of our beloved Kelsey Grammar, who most know for comedic roles. He’s a brilliant actor.

    I’m guilty of watching it On Demand and not when ratings were done. Excellent and truly dramatic show. Please don’t let it end unfinished.

    This is a great show, It is gritty and has you wondering where it will all end. KG is awesome in this, I loved Frasier but this shows him on another level. It would be a shame if this didn’t get picked up again. What this show really needs is another network to pick it up.

    If I watch a show it HAS to be good and this is about as good as it gets. Had it been on HBO it would have outshined even the Sopranos. Not everyone has Starz because you have to pay and the time slot is late. Put it on the right network and see those ratings skyrocket. I taped and watched every episode at least twice. PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW. IT IS AMAZING!

    Boss is in second season, not fourth. It’s pretty degrading to women. I prob won’t watch again. I watched because it’s bringing jobs to,Chicago for industry here.

    This is one of the best shows on TV. It has a a loyal fan base that wants to see it return. Great Acting, Great Writing, Great Storylines! If they can renew Homeland for a third season (and they don’t have very high ratings either), then they can renew Boss. They MUST renew Boss!

    Love the show!! It’s believable and very well written. KG is awsome and all the other cast do a fantastic job as well. Amazing how all these reality shows go on for years and quality shows with substance barely hang on. Please keep it coming.
