The premiere was a big improvement over what ABC had been getting in the timeslot but isn’t exactly an impressive premiere. Pan Am and The River, which will both surely be cancelled, debuted much better.

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    Please bring this show back! Looked forward to Sunday night each week so we could watch it. Have been waiting to see it again. Everyone I know loves it!

    I loved this show soi really hope you either pick it back up or someone else does. So much better than some of the shows you have now. To bad you did not let it have a full season and start it in the fall, or use it as a summer show. Your timing was bad and you never gave it a chance

      I love this show and have been waiting for the reture this season. It is very entertaining. I am so tired of seeing and enjoying a sitcom and then they are cancellecd, like Desparate Housewifes, Brothers and Sisters and now this one. Thank the Lord, that Dallas is now back own. Pretty soon, there will be only reality shows and the music shows, but not soaps. I am really tired of this!.

    I loved this show! Hate to see it cancelled. I am a Christian and I do not think it was bashing Christians. Each episode ending with a good meaning and let’s face it there are people out there that act this way.

    Please don’t cancel this show!! I looked forward to this show every week. The story line is so entertaining. The actors/actresses are top notch! Give this show time and a better time slot and it will be the next Despirate Housewives.

    This is a great show. The people are terrific. I am a man 68years old and my wife watch it and think it hilarious. We liked Annie Potts in designing women so was glad to see her back with another good show and great fellow actors. You all keep up the great work and PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! come back for several more seasons. P.S. Our daughter, son-in-law, and eleven year old grandson think the show is wonderful also…..
