    Please don’t cancel this show!!! I don’t think a lot of people know about it, but its funny, has compassion, has good stories lines. I quest it has a little bit of everything. I even got my husband who is a M.D. watching , and he hates all tv shows, especially the medical ones . So please …..keep it on. It is one of my favorite shows.

    I LOVE this show. It wasn’t advertised very much during the summer or after the show started. Other new shows were advertised over and over and over. Of all the shows I was watching, I looked forward to that one the most.

  6. Lynda says

  7. says

    This was the best show and I am so mad it is not continuing. I usually don’t care what is on T.V. because it seems to be boring. This show was very intertaining with a good cast, interesting plot and especially a twist or two in the humor catogory. Please reconsider putting it back on.

    I loved the show. I found it by accident, but once I watched it, I was hooked. There was not much publicity to promote the show, or I think it would have done better. Sad to see it go.
