Thank you for your time and consideration!!!!!

Bill August 11, 2010 at 1:16 pm

Looking forward to the Defenders!


kaeleen August 4, 2010 at 6:27 pm

I am so disappointed that ghost whisperer and numbers are gone. I so looked forward to Friday nights, and now, I have nothing to watch. Thanks so much.


Ann Harrell August 1, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Just want to say that moving CSI:Miami to Sunday Night means that the show is on its way out. It was great where it was. I don’t care how you try to put a new spin on old tv shows like Hawaii Five O and the Defenders you can’t redue these shows. Please consider returning Ghost Whisper and Numbers. They were really good shows. Networks don’t even give show half a chance anymore. Please bring them back.


JEANNE M FETTY July 31, 2010 at 9:56 am

I loved Miami Medical, Gary Unmarried, Ghost Whisperer and Flashpoint – CBS SUCKS -I am so tired of getting into shows just for them to cancel them – I mean how I met your mother and Two and Half Men could definitely go and make way for one of these better shows – I hope one of the other stations picks up some of these programs!!!!


Charlene July 27, 2010 at 11:49 pm

I am so angry that you have cancelled Ghost Whisperer and Numbers….and to not even have any repeats of Ghost Whisperer! Why not? You have repeats of pretty well every other show to the point where you just about want to gag….why not Ghost Whisperer? And what about Numbers….will there be any reruns of it? Ghost Whisperer and Numbers were shows that all of my family enjoyed. Glad to see that you kept NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, The Mentalist and Two and a Half Men. Also the Big Bang Theory, How I met your mother and Medium….but am very disappointed with the network for cancelling two wonderful shows.

Pretty sure the reason Ghost Whisperer was cancelled was due to the way they killed off Jim, then turned Sam into Jim, and now everyone acts as if it is Jim once again. They really killed the show when they killed off Jim in the first place. Then that kid Aiden, wow he drives me crazy, he is a horrible actor & just plain annoying. Didn’t really like how they jumped ahead 5 years either.


Carolyn McGill July 27, 2010 at 7:18 pm

When is the V coming back on. I think that’s one of the best series on right now. I like suspense and it was very suspenseful. I had friends I would call each week and we would discuss what happened. Couldn’t wait until the next week.

What was the reason SHARK was cancelled.

What was the reason THE 44 HUNDRED? was cancelled.

I must admit that I miss PRISON BREAK and 24.


mandy July 24, 2010 at 12:17 pm

im so upset about gary and ghost whisperer. daytime stinks on there now. i guess night time will too.


SEAL76 July 24, 2010 at 7:22 am

CSI:Miami sucks. I cant’t believe that the public actually wants to watch another season of Horatio Cain speaking in a monotone and removing his sunglasses. God Help Us All.


mom2jwn September 16, 2010 at 8:48 am

OMG I so agree, why would they keep CSI Miami, David Carusso (Horatio) is the worst actor ever!!! How can anyone want to put up with him for another season!!


Roland July 23, 2010 at 9:41 pm

Why did you cancel Gary unmarried and The New Adventures of old Christine. I thought the shows were doing fine. As for the Big Bang Theory… Great show.. but changing the day is trouble. NBC locks up Thursday night with their comedy. I will probably just DVR it.


Bess July 23, 2010 at 7:03 pm

I really enjoyed watching MIAMI MEDICAL yes I shouted this because looking at your fall lineup it looks like I am going be either renting movies or watching one of your competitors espicially on thursday, friday, and saturday nights.
Miami Medical was one of your best shows when I had to work I recorded it. For it to be replaced with Flashpoint is a tragedy.
Your line up looks like it is either stupid comedies or cop shows. I was so hoping that one of the TV channels would carry a family oriented show but it looks like that is not going to happen again. It looks like my family will be watching CSI Miami, NCIS, CSI New York at least you kept these show on your line up however the times that they will be on means that we will have to record them due work schedule.


celine July 23, 2010 at 3:04 pm

What happened to the Criminal Minds spinoff??? I’m not too crazy about the Defenders…


admin July 23, 2010 at 7:20 pm

@celine: It’s expected mid-season.


Jeremy Rynek July 23, 2010 at 1:31 pm

Stupid morons canceling Gary unmarried, The New Adventures of old Christine, numb3rs and ghost whisper. What the hell??!! I mean really why?? The ratings go down a little and if they don’t bounce back right away they just cancel. But atleast we still got the CSIs and NCIS shows along with Criminal minds, Two and a half men and How I met your mother. Thats good but still CBS was the network that didn’t make too many stupid mistakes like NBC and Fox. Also never a good sign when shows switch nights, whether their changing it because of that show or its just corateral damage while changing other shows. So don’t cancel CSI Maimi or CSI NY, two excellent shows.
