Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like GCB TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

I wish the network would bring it back or a different one would pick it up again. GCB was number one on my show list of guilty pleasures. It was so funny and I loved all the characters. With each episode we got to know more about the characters and what made them the way they are. As time went on they each evolved and more interesting facts were revealed leaving me addicted to the show. If you were born and raised in the south you would get this show and understand it and not take it so offensively. Appearently, GCB was cancelled due to the results from a small narrow minded group of people that were not raised nor understand the South. It’s ashame some people have to be so offended from everything and find faults with everything. I’ve always lived in North Carolina and I felt there was more truth to GCB than the ‘fake’ Reality Shows that are so staged and lame. There were so many ups and downs and twists and turns I was always on the edge of my seat then laughing out loud. I loved the rollarcoaster of events. I was never bored with any of the episodes and wished a new one came on each night instead of once a week. Please bring it back with all the original characters and southern charm. I wish my effort in expressing how I feel about this show would count for something. I wish all the fans could have a chance to participate in the future of televistion shows we follow. Bring back GCB……

It is very displeasing to have such an original and talented cast and show as GCB cancelled. I haven’t laughed so hard or much in many years. Rarely do I watch night time TV as the sit-coms by and large are stupid and degrading, truly adding to the dumbing down of viewers. GCB, on the other hand is so openly a spoof on the right wing Evangelical Christian movement that by and large choose to see women as objects only, women who have no apptitude for rational thought and are preferably sought only as instruments for breeding purposes and household drugery. The Texan Evangelicals many in the ‘Grand Old Party (ha)’ who are leading so many astray from the Truth, the Light and the Way of Christ, who insist on sanitizing the Christian faith need to have this program pushed for several years in their hypocritical faces. I hope you will reconsider the cancellation of this series. Although a spoof, the message is there…perhaps this is why it was cancelled…no one wants the truth to out.

Please bring this show back. All we see now is murder & cop shows (CSI, NCIS….). Don’t we have enough tragedies that happen in real life, we then need to watch it on the TV? This show was funny and very entertaining, and for those politically correct people that think this show is not displaying Christians in the right light may have a chip on their shoulder.
