    I have been waiting for the show to return. I had no idea it had been canceled. It was a favorite of mine and my family never missed it. How could it have not made it with the great talent on the panel? Wow! I’m disappointed.

    I am sad that duets will not make it back to ABC then again I stop watching ABC because every show I in up likeing in up cancelling. I love the entainment in the show, and it was different then what I thought it would be. I may change few parts of the show, and I think my friend did a great job hosting the show. The Judging people were super nice and fun to watch.

    Can’t believe some of the shows they have canceled for fall 2013. They keep shows on like Duck hunters or something like that or honey boo boo, modern family, in the middle, dumb comedies like these shows. I loved duets please bring it back along with body of proof and CSI NY. Hate most shows on now. Don’t watch them at all. Can’t stand to watch how stupid they are.

    We are so disappointed to not have Duets this year. It was so well done, the judges were excellent and tastefully conducted themselves. Please consider bringing them back. We need programs that our families can not only enjoy, but be encouraged by.

    I am so bummed that Duets was cancelled. It wasn’t really given a chance to succeed. It was so refreshing to see the stars singing with the contestants. I hope that this show is brought back for another season. You will be pleasantly surprised how much people really enjoyed this show

    I am really disappointed to hear that Duets has been cancelled. There are so many bad series on that it was nice to watch something that was entertaining for a change.

    This was the best and most entertaining singing competition period. ABC prempted this show so often we never saw the finale. With all the garbage on ABC it’s a shame to cancel this show. Kelly, Jennifer, and John were great. Robin not so much in the singing department, but he was a good coach and seems like a nice guy,

    This show was the best it needs to be brought back because all the other singing competitions are stupid and in the other singing competitions the best people got voted off but in this the singers choose who they could sing with the best and I loved that this show was fair because the best never got voted off unlike American idol which is not fair because the voting is rigged just like the X- Factor because people who deserved to go home on these two shows stayed anyways in my opinion they need to bring Duets back because
    it was basically the only fair singing competition
