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.

    Bring back GCB!!! It’s the most funny show I’ve seen. It’s my favourite. Who cares if religous people have an opinion. They don’t have to watch it. Piss on them; it’s an amazing show and needs to be brought back. Maybe they just need to change the time of the show as people have to go to work the next day. Maybe the show will get more hits that way and make more money from it . Please bring back GCB!!!

    Please please don’t cancel. This is one of the most entertaining shows = my husband even loves it.

  7. Nick says

    DON’T cancel GCB! It’s funny and deserves a chance to prove itself. A little more promotions of the show would possibly help it. It’s funny and gives you something to do on Sunday night, especially now that Desperate Housewives is off the air.

    I love this show. I was raised in a VERY religious home. This is the closes I’ve seen real Christians portrayed. Offended? I wasn’t because I’m typically not a hypocrite. Great show, great cast, with real to life story themes.

    Sad to see it go. I wish it would be reconsidered.

  9. Brandy says

    Please renew!!! This became my favorite. I even bought the season & watch every episode over & over. Don’t take away what I look forward to every week! for the love God!!!
