    Ok ABC are you kidding me?! Once again you did not give a promising series a chance but hey let’s put these pointless reality shows on your network right? At least some of the other networks actually try. I really hope you put it back on the air this Summer. My father has not had a chance to watch on dvr yet and this will disappointment him. Enough already!

    Please bring it back! Zero Hour was thrilling, compelling and a fun whodunit. You sucked us in with 3 episodes out of 13 & “cancel” it? It’s better than 1/2 the junk on ABC (like “Taste”, what a loser THAT is). Why not DVD the 13 episodes of Zero Hour & sell it to the 6 million of us who DID catch it, enjoy it, and feel cheated out of the ending?

  3. Melinda says

    Loved Zero Hour too, how can they not give the good shows a chance & horrible shows like The Neighbors is still on

  4. joan says

    I can’t believe you cancelled “Zero Hour” after only 3 episodes. I really liked it. How do you expect to get any buzz for a show if you cancel it so quickly? Dumb move, ABC.

  5. Mike B says

    Yeah, the ABC “executives” think the general viewing population are a bunch of idiots. Why else would they replace Zero Hour with Celebrity Wife Swap?? They put it probably the worst hour of television (Th 8pm) against American Idol and TBBT. Not even a try to move it to another slot? Why not Sunday, Monday, Tuesday night?
    The toolbags at ABC rely on 3w of viewer data, then kill a show? Do they have the attention span of a gnat? I’d love to understand the rationale with killing a show and throwing repeats in its space? There’s got to be a monetary reason.
    ABC, you are wearing on my last nerve. First 666 Park Avenue, then Last Resort, not this. EPIC FAIL!

    I really loved Zero Hour = please don’t cancel it. Like a GREAT novel it was full of clues and details that you just can’t put it down. Please air the episodes. I re-watched each e[isode to capture all the details justy before the next show would come on.

    P/S. I am sick of seeing the repeated of the Shark Tank!

  7. cindy says

    Don’t cancel Zero Hour! That was a great show! Hate Shark Tank, WipeOut and what is the new one SPLASH! How stupid is THAT! Zero Hour was a great short term show like Last Resort and I image Red Widow. Love those kind of shows! Please do more and get rid of reality type shows!!!!

  8. Jane Hall says

    How can ABC cancel Zero Hour after only 3 episodes?? This was my favorite new show and while some of the subject matter may seem similar to others, you cannot tell me the audience was disappointed in this show. Great cast and the story line kept you wanting to see what would happen next. PLEASE bring back Zero Hour!!!

  9. Howard and Arlene Isserles says

    Finally ABC put a show that aired and was so interesting, complex, and had great acting. Our favorite shows are still on CBS….mainly NCIS, etc……
    We got ‘involved’ in this great new series called ZERO HOUR and now we read it was cancelled. SHAME ON YOU ABC….You really don’t know what you are doing…….
    Bring it back over the summer, guess is better than not bringing it back at all………
    May someone at ABC will have the common sense to bring it back earlier than the summer and let the viewers decide. As Roger Hove mention….”Please do not cancel Zero Hour”….
    ABC, now let’s see if anyone there has the brains to figure this appeal out and respond accordingly, or I am writing to ‘Deaf Eyes’? Thank you. Howard F. Isserles, Bayside, New York.

  10. Roger Hove says

    What’s the deal with cancelling Zero Hour. That is a great TV, if you’re going cancel something get rid of these damn reality shows that are on. So many of them are scripted anyway, does that make them a reality show? I don’t think so, I call that BS TV. Please do not canel Zero Hour.
