    Friends With Better Lives was the funniest new show on TV. I believed it was going to be the next Friends. Great actors with great chemistry. It needs a longer chance. I hope someone else sees that this show is a gem and picks it up.

    This is one of the best shows on TV. Keep this on, and get rid of all those ridiculous reality shows.

    Keep FWBL back on!!!! I really thought it was going to be the next F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I got yelled at by my friends because they are now hooked, and they are upset that it’s getting canceled. At least air the rest of the season!!!!!! Please!!!

    I absolutely loved this show. It’s funny, witty and cleaver. They’re definitely making a mistake by canceling. It was nice to have an adult comedy to laugh at for a change….

    This is one heck of a mistake and I’m desperately hoping another network could pick it up. Funniest show on the air right now. BOO CBS!!!
