I love this show! Please don’t cancel it!

Is Final Witness coming back? This was a great show that really honored the voice of the deceased. The writing, the victims narration, how they show pictures of the real people in the end. I have been watching the reruns on another station, and liked them even better the second time. Bring it back. It never even got a chance before.

I love the show. There are alot of stupid reality shows on tv that need not be aired... Please bring the show back, I waited every Wednesday to tune in... Please please bring it back! September 2, 2012 at 6:15 pm

Love love love the show. With all the useless (the bachelor, bachlorett) reality shows aired on television why wouldn’t you bring back The Final Witness???? I wld set my alarm every Wednesday to watch a good show. Please bring it back.


Tammy King October 30, 2012 at 9:47 am

My sentiment exactly!


Lynn September 2, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Final Witness is a GREAT show…well done and very engaging. My favorite is the last scene where the actors hold up the photos of the people they portrayed. The actors often look almost identical to the people they play!

What is wrong with our culture when a show as stupid and mindless as “The Bachelorette” gets an A++ and this show gets a D? Don’t tell me, I already know!


Tammy King October 30, 2012 at 9:48 am

That’s my favorite part of the show too! I find it so moving, that it always brings me to tears.


Betty August 30, 2012 at 6:17 pm
