    I was surprised that it turned out to be the only new show that I really liked. Really liked! Initially watched it by accident, now watch it religiously. Will hate to see it go.

  2. Déjà says

    I absolutely love this show. I hate to hear this news. I’m in high school and I can totally relate to situations that go on in this show! I want it to be renewed so bad! Better love it while I can

  3. mc says

    I love this show! It is so much better than all those reality TV shows on these days. It shouldn’t be canceled.

  4. TM says

    Doctors don’t act like high school freshmen-they’re like engineers who have to deal with people. More Doc Martin than Grey’s Anatomy. So happy they put a slug in the head of this insipid, uninspired, and imitative show.

  5. Anastasia says

    This show should not be cancelled!!! this is a show i can actually watch with my elders whenever we all get together and not have to change the channel when ugly nasty scenes come on!!!! please don’t cancel the show!!!!!

  6. Watcher says

    Why does everyone post pleas to save the show? This website has nothing to do with that. Contact the networks directly. So silly.

  7. Sue McGaha says

    My husband and I love this show!!! It is one of the few shows that is clean enough to watch when my Grandchildren are around!!! Please do not cancel this show. It is great
