I think that Motive is horrible! It makes Police look really stupid. In the first episode, when the blonde said they had checked the house and found nothing, my husband was yelling GO UP INTO THE ATTIC! All she had done was look into the little door opening. This show is a giant waste of time. I say Cancel!! It makes me nervous to watch, it is so bad.

Agents of Shield might be an interesting new show, but I don’t know about another Once Upon A Time show. Though if it means that Barbara Hershey will be the full time evil queen of hearts, it might be pretty good.

Well it never fails they cancel the good stuff and keep all this crap, reality shows that are worthless. They need to bring back: Last Resort, Body Of Proof, CSI: NY, Monday Mornings, No Ordinary Family, Do No Harm, Flashpoint, NYC 22, Eureka, Sanctuary, In Plain Sight, Combat Hospital, Against The Wall. Just to name a few of them that has been cancelled. This leaves us with nothing but crap to watch so it is to the point now where it is not even worth turning on the TV anymore. Maybe one day these people will get there head out and put back on the good shows and get rid of the crap.

Sure wish How to live with your parents would have gotten renewed. Can’t really see any of the new stuff making it. And going by the past, most won’t.

Can’t believe that three of our favorite shows are cancelled: Body of Proof, Golden Boy and Vegas. Great character development, interesting stories and lots of action plus. What can we do to let networks know that most of the shows they are keeping are unintelligent choices? For anyone with a brain, it’s good to have a show that makes you THINK as you watch!

I agree with most of the cancelled shows, but I really like How To Live With Your Parents For The Rest Of Your Life…I’m sad to see that one go.

I am not happy about seeing that Body of Proof is going to be cancelled. It has all a show should have some comedy, drama a few “love” stories and a great cast…

I sure hope they don’t cancel these : Greys Anatomy, Scandal, Nashville, Red Widow, Once Upon a Time, or Revenge. Seems like every show I ever like gets cancelled. No matter what Station broadcasts. I DVR all my shows so I don’t have to sit through commercials!!!
