    Noo they can’t cancel this show it is one of my favorites on television. It is funny and well written and I really enjoy it. Sadly I live in the uk and find it hard to catch up and as such I was a bit late finding out it was cancelled. Here’s to hoping another network picks it up it is brilliant! !

    I really liked this program. It was fresh, funny and human. So much more than the reality shows on. I was so very disappointed in tnt. For dropping it. Wrong move on your part. How are your ratings now!!!

    TNT is run by a bunch of IDIOTS! They rerun Castle so many times you would think that it is the only show available! But, a great show like Franklin and Bash they cancel. Pretty soon no one will be watching TNT and maybe it will realize that they screwed up. Meanwhile it would be nice if USA picked it up I can’t remember the last time I saw anything good on that channel. Or maybe it was cancelled for yet another reality show-like the world needs one more of those!

    I think that this show is really awesome, it has everything that you really want in a show, especially to get away from the real life; This show has character, it’s witty, the writing is good, and the relationship with Brecken Meyers and Paul Glossner is one of which it’s brotherhood, they complement one another and the chemistry is there between both of them its like they both are in the same wavelength, they are in sync, it is like yin and yang, and for TNT to cancel after 4 season it is outrageous, they should just give it one more season ( even if it is less episodes ) and let it go out with glory like other shows with 5 seasons run, and that lasted 5 seasons; this show is really smart, it is Extremely funny, – and take it from me, my wife hardly ever laugh at anything that’s even remotely funny, sometimes I even tell her that she’s without no sense of humor but for her to laugh at the jokes and sometimes double wordplay meanings and hidden jokes, well,- to me that’s priceless.
    also on a personal NOTE : I believe that if TNT would change the show’s time maybe try 8 p.m. or 9 p.m. Rather than the 10 p.m. Slot that it was in, I believe the ratings will go up, after all the first 3 seasons, – I believe they were at either 8 or 9 p.m. It is only now on the 4th season that they ended up changing it to the 10 p.m. Slot, – and honestly a lot of people have gone to sleep by then, because they have to wake up early to go to work, on top of that they have it on Wednesday – ( hump day ) – or as we say it down here in the Florida Keys.
    Come Wednesday, lot of people are tired, I believe that if the show would be on Monday or Tuesday or Friday maybe even Thursday between 8 p.m. And 9 p.m. It would do a lot better in the ratings..
    So if someone reads my post and have any way of relating this too TNT;- I would say too TNT,- Please, we the people, your fans that love this station channel and have stuck with you through thick and thin, we ask, – no – We beg you to PLEASE NOT CANCEL FRANKLIN AND BASH, LET THE SHOW CONTINUE TO RUN ONE MORE SEASON and end with its glory like other show that have ran for 5 seasons just like Falling Skies and other television shows..
    or at least enough episodes to tie off all the loose end and bring closure to the series and let them ride off into the sunset..

    TNT wake up. Im so sick of corporate managements crap decisions. Franklin and Bash is a superbly written show for intellectuals like me. The show is hilarious right up there with Frasier and as well written as Criminal minds. We viewers arent teenagers and there’s so little good television left. Don’t you dare dump Rissoli and Isles or Major Crimes either. You are a channel to be reckoned with but not for long if you keep cancelling amazing shows like Franklin and Bash. So don’t screw this one up. Trust me. There irreverent and unconventional way of winning cases is precisely why this show is so brilliant. All the mind numbingly dull and boring 30 minute sitcomes is why i no longer watch hardly any local TV channels.
