It wasn’t a strong showing for Guys with Kids but it certainly wasn’t a bomb either. The real test will be to see if last night’s viewers return next week and how the show fares once the other networks start airing originals.

    My husband and I just found this show on Hulu, we loved it. Maybe if it had better publicity more people would have watched it. Very funny show!!

    Plesase don’t cancel. I think its an awesome show that I think a lot of families can relate and its soooooo funny.
    Please sign it for a second season

  4. says

    PLEASE PICK IT BACK UP!!! I Watched the crap out of Joey, and it got cancelled. Jimmy Fallon did a great job of creating a “Friends” like bunch of characters. Love-able and witty comedy. In my opinion, it’s the first ensemble thats worked quite frankly since Friends. ………………so please bring it back NBC. I really cant wait to see the next episode to see what Chris does. Thank you kindly, Richard Hansen………i copied and pasted this btw(in case it looks funny)

    Has to be a season 2. Just watched the entire first season on Hulu plus in 2 days and I’m begging for more. Come on NBC everyone loves this show

  6. TC says

    This show is hilarious! Great cast and Anthony Anderson rocks! Any show with him should never be cancelled. He is a comic genius. When America finally realizes how funny he is this show will be worth its weight in gold for NBC. Keep it on! You wont regret it!

    We came across the first episode of this show completely by accident. Fell in love with it immediately! We are in the 30-40 year old range with young children, so we relate to a lot of its content, and LOVE the humour! I truly do hope this show gets renewed for a second season. Too many reality TV shows right now, not enough simple sitcoms.

  8. Carla says

    Please make a season 2!
    I love this show so much, I bought almost every episode on iTunes, and continue to watch old episodes laughing every time. This show is my new favorite.

  9. MJN5252 says

    My wife and I love this show!!!!! All the characters are great, they are funny, it is a well done show and we would really like to see more of it.

    We love this show. Before they cancel it, why can’t they try it at another time, another day or even another network, but don’t cancel it.
